Long May Purple Reign

On Saturday night in Brooklyn, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band opened their concert by paying tribute to Prince.  Springsteen and Prince never collaborated with one another but speaking of Prince, Springsteen offered that, "Every time I saw him perform, I came away humbled."  

And so, on Saturday night, prior to taking his fans on a musical trip down to the river, standing on the center of a stage in an arena that was bathed in purple light, Springsteen paid tribute to Prince in the best way he knows how.

Somewhere, I suspect the diminutive Minnesotan, hearing Springsteen's voice and Nils Lofgren's electrifying guitar solo, smiled at least a little.  At least I hope he did.
