24 Prince was, and is, overblown hype IMO.
A decent showman, but so was P.T. Barnum.
I don't understand the idolatry of this guy.
Teenage girls grew up to his music... ok, fine.
He wrote some hits... yep
Banged Sheila E... wait, that's a +1


Still he died a prescription opiate junkie, alone, half falling out of an elevator.
No sympathy here, junkies are gonna do what they do.

He wrote some hits... yep Banged Sheila E... wait, that's a +1 I don't know enough to say otherwise, but I'm seeing a lot of people agreed that he was extremely good on multiple musical instruments, on top of excellence in composing music. And he has a big vault of recordings that may contain material as good as of his best known hits. Sure, you may find lots of personal flaws, but that seems typical of musical talent.

64 I'll go along with a vault full of "never made the cut even as a B-side" theory.

I suppose if I was in the Minneapolis music biz and he came walking in my office in 1991 I'd of likely let him pass as I don't see him in any fashion a musical genius. Marketing yes, but his music was crap. If you got to make it about the show, then you aren't a musician, you're an actor.

77 I wasn't a big Prince fan, but he was a very talented musician.

Posted by: Meremortal at April 29, 2016 11:57 AM (hTqVx)

78 From what I understand Prince was more spiritual than religious for the first half of his life. He also had his first hit at the age of 17. Can you imagine yourself as a young man having beautiful women throwing themselves at you? I also doubt he died of AIDS. All of those that I have seen dying of it don't look as good as he did.

Posted by: Tilikum KAW at April 29, 2016 11:57 AM (0x/TW)

79 Bowie was better, but Prince still had more musical talent than Michael Jackson, Elvis, Madonna, or any of these other "performers". Prince actually created radically innovative music.

88 Surprisingly, my respect for Prince rose after seeing him in that Blackhole of Complete Suckitude - the Super Bowl Halftime Show. Prince's 20079/0 performance was outstanding, plus good music and great guitar playing. Afterwards, I told the glorious and lovely Mrs naturalfake, "Oh, okay. I get the Prince fans now. He's pretty damn good." Though I suppose the time to catch him would've been the early nineties or late 80's.

Posted by: wooga at April 29, 2016 04:58 PM (VgC/t) Prince single-handedly created the '80's "Minneapolis Sound." He might have been even bigger if he'd gone to LA, but he stayed home in the Twin Cities. He was big enough.

94 I watched Jeruzalem (2015). It was bad yet good. I guess filming in Israel was the draw for me. I recommend it and you can find it for free on the internet.

95 HIV drugs were against his religion but banging everything not nailed down was true to gospel. - I read an interesting column the other day but I don't understand it. The column compared the decline of religion to the decline of Eastman Kodak. The idea that Kodak fell because they unwisely clung to film instead of rolling with the digital age. But it would seem to me that the least of the church's problems is failure to adopt a to-get-along-go-along attitude.

______________________________________________________


I said and will always say the same thing about Garcia/Lennon/Elvis too. Prince wasn't a God for crying out loud. He was an entertainer.

Compassion? For a guy who died with millions and millions of dollars and fans, who also had an addiction that likely cost in a month more than I make in year. Yet, with all that money he couldn't by treatment for his supposed injuries OR his addiction? Instead it bought old fashioned vanity.

Perspective and reality check time.
