In Honor of the Late Great Prince

I never meant to cause you any sorrow
I never meant to cause you any pain
I only wanted to one time to see you laughing
I only wanted to see you
Laughing in the purple rain


"Movies are real! Music is real! It affects people, it's real. … The other night I went to a club and I watched a DJ control an entire room. Even politicians can't do that."
Prince

    An absolute musical genius. If you aren't convinced, just listen to his music and the depth and breadth of it. Want jazz? Want funk? Want R & B? Want a gospel overtone? You can hear the influences of Miles Davis, James Brown, Carlos Santana and so many others. This man did it all. RIP.

  2. He was a songwriter, arranger, producer, performer, vocalist, dancer, and he could do it all with charisma. American Idol or the Voice will never produce a Prince. Those shows manufacture disposal singers for the most part. Unless you can write, you may as well buy a karaoke machine.

    Rest in Peace Prince!
