I will post any and all Prince related posts here so Mark will not lose his lunch. Mark should have mentioned at first that he dislikes most singers, not just the purple pumper.

Maybe it is an ear related thing. Mark needs to see an ear doctor about it. :)

Duane's going to get his first class in Princeology. First, you must always remember, his best stuff are beyond his official output, why my love affair with defying his copyright.

But, let's go to his most naive period, his first album, released in 1978, when he was only 18. I'd stick with Crazy You and Baby for the best tunes on the disk:

Then there's his homage to Weather Report, his jazz group Madhouse:

Ok, let's delve into some of his outtakes. Great example of both great pop and good musicality, Last Heart:

P at his weirdest? Moviestar:

Dream Factory anyone?

If you like Progressive rock, Queen, he does rock with the best of them:

That's all for now. :mrgreen:

Concentric, Wikipedia has Clare's who career. This song is a good review of Clare's help, the symphonic stuff near the end:

Happy 55th to the Man In Purple!

I remember being in high school and, being the longhaired, head-banging rocker, my friends thought it odd that I liked Prince. It was widely accepted that I was the only white heterosexual in the school who did (though the former was amusing and there was much debate about the latter). But I will say this: I was not above using the block of concert tickets I bought to procure more than one date to the show. I was going to be a bad boy, like The Man. And I'm not proud of it today, but I totally used those tix to my sexual advantage. We all went together, and in retrospect I'm sure it was probably very weird for them, all in a row. But I had a blast. I regret being that teen, that guy. But it was a good show.

Fifty-five. Jesus, I'm old.

1984. Cap Center, MD. I think I have a ticket buried somewhere. I was hoping Morris Day would cameo a song as a gesture to the movie, but it was all Purple Rain, 1999, Dirty Mind. He played a bit of Controversy, too. Sheila E. opened, he had kicked Vanity to the curb by then. I saw V a bit later at the 9:30 club in Baltimore. Christ, so sexy. Hell is wrong with him? Or me? Ahh, I was a yoot.

One must separate the artist from the art. I'm a huge fan of Sinead O'Connor. Personally she is a fourteen carat gold plated fruitcake but when she opens her mouth to sing she is one of the finest human beings alive.

My theory is that assholes make great art. Being nice is not good for quality in culture. You have to want to kick ass to be great, look at Picasso, look at Dali.

The singer of Blues Traveller is about as nice as you get, but Blues Traveller fucking suck.

Think about that for more than a minute and you'll see the fallacy. (Not about Blues Traveler, I have no opinion one way or the other whether they suck.) It's a question of necessary and sufficient conditions.
