Best concert I’ve ever been to without question was Prince at the Forum back in 2011. The experience was so surreal I still can’t believe I was there. I actually showed up an hour late which didn’t matter because I still caught two hours of an amazing set of classics, jam sessions and covers. There was no doubt he would play “Purple Rain” but my body, mind, and soul was not prepared for the almost 20 minute version he blessed us with. Prince has always been a huge inspiration to me as guitarist, so witnessing what he did on that stage was more than entertainment it was a fucking sermon. I went to church that night.

Ramona Hammer’s new single “Big Hands” is out now. There’s a new EP on the way.
