    I dont have much care for this symbol, because myself, like his millions of superfans have always just wanted the great man to get on with the music.

    let me say though - while he was being a 'weird symbol' the albums were more orchestral, jazzy and tremendous, especially in the early 90s

    Like all great well known composers, Prince's incredible music will endure for hundreds of years. That is something assured.

    Seeing Prince live - he did 21 nights in London around 2007- anyone who had the privilege like me, will say, it was one of the best experiences of their life!

    OMG CHECK OUT 6 minutes of GUITAR GENIUS HERE!!!! IDA and Prince!

    Prince Unplugged...as much as MTV could beg...showcases the brilliance of his songs in their raw beauty...

    Prince's masterpiece 'I feel for you' (written, produced and performed all the instruments) at the age of 21 in 1979. It wasn't a massive hit till Chaka Khan took it onboard in around 1983 and it won Prince his first grammy

    More Prince boring trivia....he won an Oscar for the song Purple Rain in 1984. Here is his speech

    When Prince decided to be a symbol in 1993, he released this horrendous mix. i didnt like this megamix, it kind of belittled what he had done before but maybe he was taking the piss out of himself...he even did an album with himself standing over a grave called COME. Its a jazz masterpiece from 1994 and one of Prince's greatest works. After that, he did another jazzy album with his new band, and it was really great with lots of horns. It was called 'New Power Soul'

    i wish the jazz album Come, were more available to folks. Its a jazz masterpiece from 1994 - there are a few Urbans who have heard it. I think once Prince got into the Jehoviahs witness after this, he was advised not to promote this album but to me, it is a clean, perfect album. Superjazzy beyond belief with falsetto performances that are the best Prince has ever done. Also steady in its accessiibility and general brilliance. Like Kind of Blue by Miles Davis, it is mainly an instrumental jazz album. And many people havent heard it but number two in my all time favourite Prince albums

    The songs from 'Come' are beautiful and spiritual (and it's a deep jazz journey like Kind of Blue) but this is a song they did afterwards

    It's great, innit? Easily my favourite version of that song and I'm generally ambivalent about KC.

    For the big fans like me....we adored Sinead O' Connor's iconic version of 'Nothing Compares 2U' but had never heard of a 'Prince' version. Prince of course, wrote the song.

    He released his album version with Rosie Gaines on the Hits (2). It is beyond heaven and much better than the original :eek:, if you havent heard it, here is a live version

    Admiring Prince's genius is so easy, its scary. When Doves Cry. Utterly astonishing! As usual with Prince, a masterpiece!

    Princes horrible estate wont allow people to check out lots of his old stuff on youtube. Most of the vids have been ripped down

    i recommend (after this) checking out Raspberry Beret.

    Prince interview. He rarely did them, but this is a good one from around 1999.

    Beats & Pieces Pilate questioned truth. You?

    Prince.

    Overrated, and of no consequence except for a few records. Discuss.
