Is it possible for you to go one day without saying something weird. I guess not.

Prince is fvcking great, and is very underestimated for both his song writing and guitar playing. He's got a very unique approach to the guitar, which not many can boast.

He seems to get more attention for his eccentric behavior than his music though.

Don't get me wrong, I like Michael Jackson too, but not rockin' enough for me.

Another thing I like about Prince is that he can play the blues. Anyone can play the blues, but finding someone who can play it right is a pretty rare thing.

Plus, Prince's music is far more eclectic than MJs. Even though MJ is supposed to be a soul singer, Prince has so much soul that it's oozing out of his eyeballs.

I would have to agree.

Totally different artists, Jacko wins on voice and moves, Prince certainly wins on creativity and straight up funkativity.

Should be pointed out that they've both recorded an awful lot of tripe pop, the epitomy of cheese in a bad way, as well as some great songs.

Personally I probably play and listen to more MJ, but that's partly down to the genius of the Quincey Jones production and arrangement on most of his classic era stuff.

If Prince and Quince had got together that would have been something.
