Hook of the Day - Prince "Creep" (Live at Coachella)

by Wayne Graham

I was pretty nonplussed overall about the Coachella line up this year...until they announced that Prince would play. The Purple One remains the very best live act I've ever seen, he's absolutely amazing, and the best part have no idea what he's going to do when you see him. He could parade out some hits, some covers, just jam with his crack team of backup musicians, the sky's the limit. So, needless to say, Prince playing to a festival crowd is an attractive proposition.

As it turned out, he did all of the above. Here's the cover you'll be hearing about all week.....Radiohead's "Creep". The setlist is below the video. Enjoy!

Set List:
The Bird (performed by Morris Day)
