David Gilmour of Pink Floyd fame performed his song "Comfortably Numb" earlier this week, with a special tweak that honored the late, great Prince. The widely popular and recognizable song featured a mashup or medley variation this week when Gilmour performed for Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall, adding in measures of "Purple Rain," with some a special light show as well. Watch this performance below.

Glimmer's unique voice surely wouldn't have been appropriate to take on the "Purple Rain" vocals, so the guitarist simply used the instrumentation and played Prince's incredible solo, mixed in with his own solo from "Comfortably Numb."

Listening to this live performance of these two songs coming together makes you feel like they were always meant to be in a medley.

Watch this fitting tribute to Prince from one of the only other guitarists in the world that can come close to measuring up to the Purple One (via Consequence of Sound / WMMR):

This isn't the only tribute to Prince, though.
