A tribute of a master,
My most favorite -
All seven and we'll watch them fall They stand in the way of love And we will smoke them all With an intellect and a savoir faire No one in the whole universe Will ever compare
Prince was one of the great ones.
My favorite Prince tune:
Back in the 80's when I was stuck on rock, he lifted the veil and opened a new world of music for me.
That's a very good thing. I'm into all kinds of music.
I am too now. Back then I just thought it was only cool to listen to rock.
Then I thought, what defines cool. I am not going to be stuck to one genre.
Music is the greatest product of the human race. With space flights, which is an astounding accomplishment, they bring music.
I like everything from opera to reggae. African music is fantastic. Brazilian music is incredible. Mozart, Bach, Beethoven. The gospel music of the Black churches. Even the drone sounds of the indigenous people of Australia on the didgeridoo. It's ALL good.
The best Super Bowl halftime show ever...but do yourself a favor and revisit the Rock and Roll induction ceremony of his rendition of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”
(on my cell, can someone download this for our enjoyment?)
Thanks, Ender...I can watch this on an endless loop...
Sadly I never saw his halftime show.
And we know how the NFL can be...Haha
Steve Winwood, awesome musician.
The man could play anything - and very well too. It's been said that on a few of his songs, he played each and every instrument and sang each tone himself - with no other band member playing. Awesome talent.
On a sad note, I hated the trash-talking that Dhani Harrison did later.
I am shocked he did that. He is very much his father's son and George was overly kind (aka Clapton).
Love how at the end he throws the guitar up in the air. Did it ever come down or he now still playing it?
Guessing he is playing it once again...tossed to the heavens and awaiting his arrival...no one wore a guitar like this guy.Brilliant.
Diamonds and Pearls.
Not to be confused with....well, never mind.
This is a fantastic tune.
There wasn't a Prince song that I disliked. The following are some of my favorites though:
This last one is kinda dirty... I guess most were, but this one is a bit more obvious.
A lot of his songs were dirty.
That's why I said most were, but that one was particularly obvious.
A lot of his songs were dirty.
Yep. Those were the days. A couple of Jello shots and a Prince song and I can't remember where I left my underwear.
"Get thee to a nunnery."
That's what I said to myself in the wee hours of the same morning I decided to join the nearest convent.
Purple Rain was one of the 1st pieces of recorded music I ever owned and I wore that album out. Along with every other one since. I cried when he passed..
Those videos take me back to a place in my mind. Back to the 80s, toolin around the back roads of our rural town with my best friend in my 77 CHevy Nova, listening to Prince cassettes and drinking PBR for her & Jack for me.
I was not a fan of him or his music, but when I heard how his newborn son had died, I was heartbroken for him.
