    His name was Prince
    And he was funky
    His name was Prince
    The one and only


    Minneapolis is flooding with purple tears today.

    Prince wrote three Billboard Hot 100 top ten records in one day. If I remember right they were "Manic Monday", "Little Red Corvette", and "Nothing Compares 2 U". Most people can't accomplish 1/3 of that in a lifetime. I hope Prince is remembered for what he did on that day, and on the rest of the days of his life rather than a Chapelle Show sketch.

    I haven't listened to any Prince yet, I might have to give this one some time.

    He did put out that album with Chappelle dressed as him on the cover, though, haha.

    Prince was a hell of a human being. Really sad day.

    Here is Miles on Prince. Remember, Miles invented cool.

    [video=youtube_share;1BxRYIoKMJU]http://youtu.be/1BxRYIoKMJU[/video]

    “Prince does so many things, it’s almost like he can do it all; write and sing and produce and play music, act in films, produce and direct them, and both him and Michael [Jackson] can really dance. … They are both mother****ers, but I like Prince a little better as an all-around musical force. Plus he plays his ass off as well as sings and writes.”

    “Prince is from the school of James Brown, and I love James Brown because of all the great rhythms he plays,” he wrote. “But Prince got some Marvin Gaye and Jimi Hendrix and Sly in him, also, even Little Richard. He’s a mixture of all those guys and Duke Ellington."


    Here is Prince in 1985 when Miles was really into him.

    11/15/88, Seattle, Lovesexy tour... one of the best concerts I have ever seen. Simply amazing. I am truly sad that the world lost such a brilliant artist who played by his own rules.

    Chuckles- The scene right now in Minneapolis must be moving. I hope you are able to take in a little of the collective emotions charging your fair city.

    BTW- he shreds that solo in While My heart Gently Weeps.

    Cheers,
    rj

    Have been watching quite a few U-Tubes of Prince performances. Lot of people recognize true talent. Take a look he will be missed.
