He came in well after my musical sensibilities were formed in the late 60s and early 70s.. but he was undoubtedly a skilled tunesmith.. and produced some of the great cultural anthems of the 80s and 90s. RiP.

turns out the "Artist formerly known as" was a genius stroke for bailing on a bad contract

Gopherland is in very serious mourning for him.
I honestly have not seen this many adults openly crying since the day JFK was assassinated.

Prince donated truck loads of money into many charitable causes here in the Twin Cities - he loved this place, rooted for every sports team, and what the Lynx womens pro basketball team won he showed real class by giving the players a full free concert. The players said they never saw anything like that in their lives.

You cannot believe how much he was beloved here in his home town. But it was a love that was mutual.

Old age and overdose (a few days earlier)have what in common?

At 5 foot 2, I'd say he was a mini sotan

Eric Clapton was once asked what it was like to be the greatest guitarist in the world. His answer, you will have to ask Prince. Heard that on CTV this morning and thought it was fitting tribute to the man. Fare thee well, Prince.

Justin Bieber has infuriated Prince fans with a comment about the late musician on social media.

Prince, full name Prince Rogers Nelson, was found unresponsive at his home in Minnesota on Thursday. His cause of death had yet to be determined.

Fans of the Purple Rain musician deluged Twitter and Instagram with tributes to their idol, with many focusing on the multi-instrumentalist's talents as a live act.

However, Bieber enraged Prince fans by disagreeing to a post made by singer/songwriter Andrew Watt on Instagram which paid tribute to the star by describing him as, "the last of the greatest living performers".

"Well not the last greatest living performer," the Sorry singer wrote in a response which has since been deleted.
The comment resulted in a flood of objections from fans, with those who had lost their musical idol describing the comments as showing disrespect to the deceased star.

"Can't believe some little wanna be child would disrespect someone as amazing as prince!" an Instagram user by the name of crazy--zef--betch420 wrote.

While another, with the handle magpielee added, "I'm content to say that Prince has more talent in his little toe nail than justinbeiber will ever have."

In the wake of the musician's death, hundreds of stars around the world paid tribute to including Mariah Carey, Rolling Stones star Ronnie Wood, the actor Samuel L. Jackson and pop star Justin Timberlake.

Bieber himself was yet to comment on the row. A rep for Bieber told Gossip Cop that the alleged screenshot was "fabricated."

U.S. authorities have launched an investigation into Prince's death, with a post-mortem due to be carried out on Friday.

Although i liked some of his music, it struck me that he was very representative of the effeminate personna rock took in the 1980s. In acts like Prince, Bowie, Duran Duran.. and glitter and hair bands with their mascara and spandex. They were the major key of rock through the 80s and early 90s. They were was not necessarily homosexual in character but just ambiguous in gender identity.

There was a definitively masculine reaction to this in retro bands like Guns and Roses, Lenny Kravitz, Black Crowes and the grunge bands. But they were definitely the minor key during that period.

As far as i can tell things have even further splintered now, with indie bands forging independent paths. As far a i can tell no band or act formed in the last 20 years has the profile to fill an arena, much less a stadium. You have to go to 60s bands in their final retirement tours like the Stones of Grateful Dead to fill a stadium these days.

They should put Prince on the $20 bill and call it $19.99. It will be the bill that was formerly known as a Twenty
