Default Prince

Y`know I did a search on him & there`s never been a Prince thread in any forum.Thats just shocking.

I think the fact I had no idea which forum to put him in speaks volumes for his talent. I could have put it in the pop forum , I could have put it in the rap/hip hop forum (As that covers soul & funk).

I could have put it in the Rock forum as I think he`s the most under rated guitarist on the planet and some of his solo piss over some of the more rated rock/metal guitarists whos names usually crop up on any of the 'best guitarists' threads here.

I think the guy was one of the saving graces of mainstream pop in the 80s. Given the choice of having to listen to Thriller & Off The Wall or Purple Rain & Sign O The Times i`d take the Prince albums EVERY time.

FUCK YEAH! I've been listening to Prince's Purple Rain recently and I cannot BELIEVE that I never took Prince seriously. This guy was bloody brilliant. Why has he been so forgotten by the modern younger music community? You NEVER hear people talking about Prince. This guy, unlike Michael Jackson or whoever, was a real actual artist, and a genius at his craft. I could say so much more but I'll leave it to see if this can generate any interest.

The album Purple Rain is immensely good, get it right now or you're an idiot.

Arg, I've given up trying to download Purple Rain - something always seems to go inexplicably wrong. From two different sources on megaupload I've downloaded a .rar file which turned out to be seemingly empty....it's only ever happened to me with that one album.

But yeah, Prince is a great artist and the more I hear of him the more I respect him. Until now I never thought of him as a guitarist.

I've never been able to really get into Prince on that gut level but I definitely respect his talent. There's no doubt the man's a genius. And damn he put on the best Superbowl halftime show I've ever seen.
