“Prince was and will always be a very big inspiration to us as a band. His lyrics, the melodies, the guitar solos, the groove, the vibe, the music – - such an insane amount of talent. I think Justin Timberlake said it best, ‘not a ‚Äėonce in a lifetime‚Äô kind of artist, more like ‚Äėonce in forever‚Äô,” the band wrote in the notes section.
R5 added, “We have played this song on tour quite a bit and it always brings so much energy to the show. There is nothing quite like a Prince song, and ‚ÄúLet‚Äôs Go Crazy‚ÄĚ has always been one of our favorites and we thought we‚Äôd share it with you all, in memory of one of our favorite artists, Prince.”
And about that pic of Ross with a bloody nose? He’s fine.
