Prince

En 2008, lors d’un passage au festival Coachella, Prince reprend  « Creep » de Radiohead… Les captures envahissement très vite YouTube de sorte à ce que tout le monde puisse profiter de l’écoute… c’était sans compter les frasques de Prince et de sa maison de disque qui s’évertuent à demander le retrait de toutes les vidéos… Problème, Prince ne possède pas les droits de Creep et c’est Thom Yorke lui-même, qui n’a pas eu le temps d’écouter la reprise, qui demande sa re-mise en ligne. (cf. cet article de numerama)

La suite nous est raconté indirectement par plusieurs sites (sans que l’on ne retrouve trace de la « récente interview ») :

In a recent interview, Thom Yorke said he heard about Prince’s performance from a text message and thought it was “hilarious.” Yorke laughed when his bandmate, guitarist Ed O’Brien, said the blocking had prevented him from seeing Prince’s version of their song.

“Really? He’s blocked it?” asked Yorke, who figured it was their song to block or not. “Surely we should block it. Hang on a moment.”

Yorke added: “Well, tell him to unblock it. It’s our … song.”

YouTube prohibits the posting of copyrighted material. If the site receives a complaint from a copyright owner, it will in most cases remove the video(s). Whether the same could be done for a company not holding a copyright is less clear, but Yorke’s argument would seem to bear some credence according to YouTube’s policies. YouTube, which is owned by Google, declined to comment.

Prince also did not immediately respond to a request for comment Thursday…

When Prince performed at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, Calif., on April 26, he prohibited the standard arrangement of allowing photographers to shoot near the stage during the first three songs of his set. Instead, he had a camera crew filming his performance.

 

 

Quoiqu’il en soit, il faudra attendre début 2016 pour que les enregistrements refassent à nouveau surface… Prince en tweete lui-même le lien… puis vire le tweet quelques jours plus tard…
