Video - James Brown, Michael Jackson, Prince onstage together
This is one of those really cool retro videos that I can't believe isn't a well-known piece of footage. It's shambolic, the sound is pretty rough, but there's no mistaking the excitement in the audience and just how special it would have been to see this live.
Plus, with two of these guys now upstairs (hopefully), and one of them seemingly not anywhere near at his best, it's great to watch them all in better days, and even with the relatively short little cameos from Prince and Michael Jackson, it's a timely reminder of why they're such big stars so long after their prime.
