Idk why I didn't make this yesterday, probably because I don't really listen to Prince, but I know a lot of people were very upset to hear about his death. So I decided to make a thread for it.

Feel free to talk about his music, or share any experiences you had. Also, inform us younger people about him, since I knew little about Prince.

ButterCatX: "No, Vaarka is mine!"

All hail scum Vaarka, wielder of the bastard sword, smiter of nations, destroyer of spiders -VOT

"Vaarka, I've been thinking about this for a long time now," (pulls out small box made of macaroni) "W-will you be my noodle buddy?" -Kirigaya

Me: What is the weirdest thing I have ever done?
Solon: Agreeing to date me.

Skep: Bailey, you have sardonic written all over your face.
Annie: She has gorgeous written all over her face!

If you ever just want someone to vent, rant, or discuss anything troubling you, my PMs are always open. Have a fabulous day!

There are multiple reports that Eric Clapton was once asked what it was like to be the greatest guitar player alive, and he responded, "I don't know. Ask Prince."

Some regard that story as an urban legend, but the premise might be true.

I'm not a huge fan of Prince's music to be honest, but he's undoubtedly an amazing musician. His most popular songs are Purple Rain, When Doves Cry and Little Red Corvette, the latter being my favorite (but it's still too cheesy for me and I'm a fan of 80s music lol so that's saying something).

Not only did he write his own songs, but he wrote a ton of music for other popular artists. "Manic Monday" by the Bangles and "Nothing Compares To You" by Sinead O'Connor were written by Prince. Personally I love when he covers other people's songs, because he's such an awesome guitarist, but I don't love his tunes. He did a really amazing solo at the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame on the song "While My Guitar Gently Weeps." Check out this dynamite performance. Prince comes on stage to solo at 3:25. Magic.

Thanks for posting this link.. I posted the video because it is phenomenal! It made me weep more than when I first found out about his death. I am a huge fan! He was responsible for bringing funk and rock together, and one of my favorite musicians of all time.
