With Coachella quickly approaching, there’s no time like the present to dig up some killer past acts from the festival. In this 2008 throwback, the late icon Prince covers Radiohead’s “Creep.” Whether you’re a Prince fan or not, it’s hard not to find this awe-inspiring.

I’m not sure which is more impressive: that guitar or those vocals. Either way, this performance is the stuff of legends. I mean, Dave Grohl himself once said, “Dude, Prince is a better drummer than I am” in a past interview with Howard Stern.

Coachella begins next Friday, April 14, and Radiohead will headline the first day of the fest.
