As a 50 + white guy, I had trouble explaining to my 19 year old son why I was a Prince fan. He still saw Prince as a Pop artist, but I kept telling him Prince was part of the Rock community. When Prince passed I told him Bruce would do a tribute. I think this video finally convinced him. Clapton’s remarks didn’t hurt either.
