The "Raspberry Beret" video and Pat Smear

Pat Smear, the guitarist for The Germs, Nirvana and now Foo Fighters, was a dancer in the RB video. He said the experience was incredible.

Yep, pretty common knowledge at this point. I remember Wendy & Lisa talking about something and they mentioned Pat Smear in the video.

There are people who were not hardcore Prince fans, or became Prince fans after his passing, who look to prince.org for information and fellowship. To have a moderator snap my head off because I posted something s/he already knew: I don't think that was appropriate, and it was not the intention of the founder of the org.

Isn't TP a moderator? S/he certainly posts as if one. If not, I apologize. His/her original comment and subsequent GIF were unnecessarily snarky, to say the least. We are all trying to be courteous here as we promote and preserve Prince's legacy.

“Dave Grohl, Nirvana and Foo Fighters: That’s when Pat had dreadlocks all the way down to his butt. He loves Prince, so he put together a white ensemble and goes down to the auditions, at a rehearsal space in Los Angeles. He gets there, and everyone has to do a synchronized dance. Pat can’t dance. So he got cut. They sent him home. He starts walking down the hallway and hears, “Hey you!” He turns around and there’s a big bodyguard standing next to Prince. And Prince whispers in the bodyguard’s ear. The bodyguard says, “You can stay. He likes your hair.” They wanted his hair in the video!“
