Prince Dead at 57

Kinda bummed to hear Prince passed away today. I grew up loving a lot of his music.

Respected through out the music industry wide and far, he's touched a lot of you with out even you knowing it.

Truly a musical genius.

He was no Beethoven. But he was definitely one of the best pop singers of all time. Not quite as big as Michael Jackson, but I personally preferred Prince's edgier music over Michael's stuff.

RIP to one of the greats.

Calling Prince a pop singer is selling him massively short. He played every instrument on his first 5 albums. He would learn saxophone or harpsichord to play a 2 bar sample he wanted. Take away his singing and he's one of the greatest rock guitarists of all time. Constantly ahead of he curve with his music. That's something we probably don't appreciate listening 30 years later, that he was ahead of everyone else, and his inventiveness set the tone for what came next with how influential he was. He infused sexuality into music like no one since Elvis and played with identity and performance like only Bowie and Madonna have. He was a musical virtuoso, a visionary, and a cultural icon. One of the best musicians of all time, in any genre.

RIP

Type me another paragraph or two of **** I already know. But this time, when you pretend to know what you are talking about, make sure you include his pop songwriting legacy, since that is what really separated him from MJ and Madonna. You know, the two pop megastars he was compared with his whole life.

That was covered when you called him a pop singer. But you can mention others in the same breath with him in that regard. My point was that what separated him was the combination of that + musicianship, persona, and originality.

They should put Prince on the $20 bill and call it $19.99 It'll be the bill formerly known as a twenty.
