OT - Prince....

Recommended Posts

Ohhh.... Jealous of that! Often overlooked how good a guitarist he was too. Phenomenal singer and writer, which is well documented but you see some of his playing live and it''s just incredible! (Which you''ll no doubt be aware of!)

Shocked when I saw this on the news. Not a fan as such but did like a few of his songs and appreciate the musician he was. Seems he had been suffering from severe flu

Only saw him once (not a brilliant gig sadly) but he was an unmistakable musical genius. RIP Prince, another good one gone[:''(]

Also found it quite amusing that he became a jehovah witness and would go out door knocking! What a surreal moment that would be when you answered the door!

"When U were Mine" is one of the great pop songs. "Purple Rain" is epically, er, epic. Also an incredible musician and his guitar playing was much underrated.

Meanwhile, Prince Philip is still with us.

Deeply disappointing. 2016 can lick my balls.

Perhaps because he is not a druggie

Gutted. The greatest true musician and most talented live performer I''ve ever seen.

I''ve had the pleasure of seeing Prince a number of times but the greatest memory will be the night/morning I was at one of his legendary after-show parties. The performance was incredible, he played all kinds of music, all of it brilliantly in his own unique style. His energy and stamina was phenomenal as the after-show went on longer than the concert, and his charm and charisma really shone in the smaller, more intimate venue. Unforgettable night.

Prince is a huge loss. A creative and prolific songwriting genius who has influenced and inspired legions of fellow artists and fans much like Bowie before him. 2016 is a bad, bad year for music.

RIP Prince.

I remember seeing him at the Etihad, was superb, nearly as good as seeing us win 3-2 there

This was on FB from a fellow running club member last evening:

''I got a penny off a £20 pair of running socks today. I''m gonna party like it''s 19.99'' ‪#‎topical‬

Personally I''m gutted I never saw Prince perform. He was on my ''want to see'' list - sadly that needs revising now...
