In lieu of going out with my friends to the bar as I did on the night of Bowie's death, tonight I just disappeared down a Prince k-hole. I already have a fair share of rare/unreleased/bootleg material, but I went even further. Just managed to find mp3s of what is supposedly the greatest Prince bootleg, a show from 1988 in Rotterdam called "Small Club, 2nd Night", which is, no surprise, an afterparty. The quality is spectacular, and it's some of the best guitar work I've ever heard. There's a few live standards like Housequake, D.M.S.R., and It's Going To Be A Beautiful Night, but also some covers (Just My Imagination, Down Home Blues, James Brown's Cold Sweat). Anyway, I can provide the link if anyone wants to PM me.

Now I'm trying to find the pieces to put together the abandoned Dream Factory and Crystal Ball projects, which eventually morphed into Sign O' The Times. To think that masterpiece was actually some cobbled-together compromise is mind-blowing.

I read that he was putting off the surgery since 2005. Him being a Jehovah's Witness, he didn't want any blood transfusions, so the surgery wasn't performed.

Not every nonsensical thought has to be posted.

I just watched the While My guitar Gently Weeps rock and roll hall of fame tribute to George Harrison and what strikes me more than the guitar solo itself is the looks on the faces of all the other musicians, they seemed to be awestruck.

Huge loss - what a tough year so far.

Here's also a nice one from The Telegraph. Prince – obituary
Quote:
Prince, who has died aged 57, was to the pop music of the 1980s what David Bowie had been to that of the previous decade, its sole authentic genius.

Certainly, there were singers who sold more records or gained more awards, although his sales would top 100 million and he won seven Grammys as well as an Oscar. There were contemporaries of his who dominated their genres of music to a greater extent, among them Bruce Springsteen, Michael Jackson and Madonna. Yet none had as much influence or creativity as he, none broke as many rules as he, nor did so with such effortlessness and such showmanship.

This one is excellent.

Prince's Lost Rolling Stone Interview: 'I Don't Think About Gone' | Rolling Stone

If we ever do hear what's in the "vault" and it lives up to even half the potential listed here, this could be very interesting...

i dunno about the "sole authentic genius" of 80s pop. that seems more than a little hyperbolic.

more influential than Michael Jackson or Madonna in the 80s? come on.

He was more authentic than Jackson and Madonna, that's for sure.

Madonna built her career around playing to a perception.

for sure, but i definitely take exception to the notion that he was the only true genius in pop music for an entire decade.

he was most certainly not more influential on the cultural zeitgeist than Mike or Madonna though. that's just silly.

I almost said "wasn't Morrisey 80s genius in pop?" but I realize he's not necessarily counted as "pop" musician.

Nor was he genius or nearly as popular as any of the others listed.
