Certified BAMF: Watch Prince guitarist Donna Grantis rock out with Pearl Jam in Toronto


Over the past few years, every time we watched Prince perform — whether it was in person at Mogehan Sun casino in 2014, on television during the recent Saturday Night Live tribute, or just random clips of the late music icon’s shows with 3RDEYEGIRL — our eyes and ears would wander over to guitarist Donna Grantis.

The Canadian-born musician is as bad-ass as it gets, and yesterday she joined Pearl Jam on stage in Toronto to bust out Neil Young’s classic (and Pearl Jam live staple) “Rocking in the Free World”.

The whole nine-minute clip is worth a watch and a listen, but Grantis really starts to shred right around the 3:30 mark and again just before the six-minute point. Watch it in full below, and take note: Pearl Jam play two gigs this summer at Fenway Park in Boston on August 5 and 7. More info here.
