We all have our opinions man. MJ def has talent, my preference goes to Prince though. Just wanted to make sure you weren't basing your opinion on Purple Rain because that's a really, really terrible overrated awful song.

It doesnt matter the number of instruments someone plays, it does not make them more or less talented.

If the discussion was on "who is the better musician" that is one thing.

BUT


If we are looking at an artists overall talent, impact, influence and ability to entertain, it is very narrow minded to ONLY look at the number of instruments they play.

.
Musician A plays guitar and piano, but has tried and failed to learn other instruments.

Musician B plays guitar, piano, trumpet, saxophone, violin, cello, french horn, harp, concert bass, drums, and flute, all at a high level.

Apparently musician A = musician B.

Yep, logic checks out.

Neither musician means shit without a decent songwriter.

I would have to say MJ but that's only based on knowing his songs, I really don't know a lot of prince songs. Pop music doesn't do a whole lot for me to be honest haha,
