In lieu of AG‘s usual Throwback Thursday, the song choice today — Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U,” which Sinead O’Connor took to No. 1 in 1990 — is a throwback, but the performance is from last year. It’s from recent AG cover boy Chris Cornell on SiriusXM’s “Artist Confidential” series, and it goes out to Prince fans everywhere, who, like the AG staff, are feeling mighty sad today.
Don’t miss Bryan Gibson’s lovely cello part, or the sweet solo from second acoustic guitarist Keaton Simons. — Mark Kemp
