“The line he said to me was like, ‘Nobody’s gonna tell you how to play your guitar, Jack’. And he talked about the [2008] james bond song [‘Another Way To Die’] I had just done it,” White recalled.

“And he said, ‘I really like that. And I said, ‘Oh, that’s great. ‘Cause some people it’s like making a song for star wars fans or something. You throw yourself into the sea of… It’s a very controversial track. And he goes, ‘Oh, I thought that was really strong.’ “

Elsewhere, newly unearthed footage of Prince pleading for better pay for teachers aged 11 has recently made its way onto the internet.

The rare footage – filmed in 1970 – was discovered in the archives room of the Minneapolis television station WCCO by production manager Matt Liddy, who was digging through the archives in order to place the teachers’ strike which took place at the same beginning of the year in a better context.
