Former Beatle Paul McCartney has payed tribute to Prince by performing a mostly instrumental version of the 1983 hit “Let’s Go Crazy”
McCartney had previously tweeted his sadness about the star’s shock passing, but waited until his current tour arrived in Prince’s hometown of Minneapolis to pay a musical tribute.

“Here’s to the man,” McCartney said after playing the track.
“Loved that guy. Thank you Prince, for writing so many beautiful songs, so much music. And he’s your guy. Prince, Minneapolis; Minneapolis, Prince. It goes together”
Saddened by Prince’s death. Proud to have seen in the New Year with him. He seemed fine and played brilliantly funky music.

Prince of course played an amazing guitar solo on a version of the Beatles track “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” that has gained a lot of attention since he died last month.
