I agree. The fact is, I don't believe there has ever been a single more talented INDIVIDUAL musician. Simply amazing.

Exactly. So many great musicians cite him as a major influence. The man's a genius.

The fact that he was compared to Michael Jackson(Why? Because he too is skinny, effeminate, and light skinned black?) is not only an insult to the brilliance that is Prince, but in a world that celebrates mediocraty, rendered him less popular. Prince's 80's output was decades ahead of it's time up. His music is unpredictable, creative, and interesting. He plays his own instruments, writes, and produces his own songs. AND he dances, so he is a quadruple threat.
