Prince on stage with Bruce Springsteen during Baby Im A Star 1985

On the recording of Baby Im A Star Inglewood forum you can hear

Prince saying aroung 7min 12 sec

Bruce you wanna play something and Bruce Springsteen plays

a very good mix of funk

rhythm guitar with bluesy fills.

I know two of them being on stage was dicussed already but nobody talked about the actual performance

in my opinion The Boss did a very good job playing Princes guitar

Makes sense. I mean, before he was BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN - heck, even before his first record and before he was writing his own songs or even singing, Bruce was known as one of THE guitar players on the Jersey shore. He was still in his teens at this point. Here's a cool example of Bruce playing some nice licks on a 2014 cover of Roy Head's Treat Her Right. This is only the third documented time that Bruce ever played this song live, yet his fills makes it sound like he's 1000% familiar with the song, despite some rando fan climbing on the stage!

Currently listening to this at the moment, which has all of the above (though Cover Me is a different performance, it still has a blistering solo):
