    I remember seeing the original airing of this and thinking "how freaking awesome" the pairing was. Odd yes, but freaking awesome at the same time.

    Professional musicians should be able to sound awesome with just a little bit of rehearsal time. It's their job.

    Aerosmith and Run DMC.
    I'm sure someone who isn't currently on a phone can embed it for me.

    Apparently Run DMC thought the lyrics sounded like hillbilly jibberish, and Aerosmith hated rap, so both parties had to be talked into it. They ended up quite liking and respecting each other and it had amassive impact in bringing rap and hip hop into the mainstream.

    I was always impressed with Prince's ability to deliver massive guitar licks. He seems like a very talented guitarist to me.

    I have worked with him on and off for over 25 years, and not only is he one of the best guitar players I have ever heard, he plays every other instrument you can put in front of him as well as or better than the actual players he has with him...

    Prince is arguably the most talented and influential musical artist over the last 40 years. I put him near the top for longevity, out-put, talent, and live performances. He's still putting out great music. Sure, he's had some clunkers, but when you create as much as he does you're bound to.
