They found a body at his estate. News isn't saying who it is, but TMZ is saying it is Prince.
That attitude of his is probably the only reason he wasn't included as one of my top ten.I am completely shocked by this. He was so talented and produced some amazing music, which is part of my regular rotation. (And yeah, a bit of a nutter, but like PatrThom said, he could back it up.)
You're not wrong about him being tiny. I was only a few people away from him at my first concert and I am for sure taller than him.The weird thing for me about Prince is, even though I'd heard of him and knew he was famous for something about music, I had no idea what. I knew he did that one song for the Batman film, but I knew him mostly as a joke. For being short or weird or off-putting, from stories told by Weird Al or Kevin Smith. Or the whole running joke about him changing his name to a symbol. I knew him as a punchline.
And now I'm hearing how he was this great guitarist or something and how he was a major influence in the music industry. Just another example of how little I know about music and the music industry, I guess.
I don't mean any disrespect to him or his fans. Just looking at it from my perspective. I don't think I've even listened to Purple Rain.
That's cause you were like 4-6 years old when they were selling millions of copiesI recognize or know less than a third of those songs.
Ok..here's a shocker written by prince...I knew all of those were written by him except the Stevie Nicks song, which is odd since it's one of my favorites by her.
Here's the video many people are citing today as an example of his talent (his 2004 induction into the R&RHoF).now I'm hearing how he was this great guitarist or something and how he was a major influence in the music industry.
Never!Lest we forget:
I don't really know the song either. It's a shocker, because it's a croony country song, and not the funky-80's-with-trumpets that mark much of his body of work.I don't know that song to begin with. Once The Gambler faded out of popularity I didn't really listen to Kenny Rogers much.
