    If any one can... I'd like a piece showcasing (video) of pure guitar play from both Hendrix and Prince.

    Michael Jackson's death impacted me but Prince's death I felt nothing. He was an artist I did not really care about.

    Remember him quite well too, loved Purple Rain, he was ahead of his time, dont think he ever learned to read music, could play many many instruments.

    oh, that`s right,... he was!
    you had me thinking, wondering who is the bigger sell-out between the two...
    then I remembered - to my knowledge Bruce Springsteen did not squeak when he sang, or walk in public with his ass hanging for other men to see (Prince), or die.
    Advantage Springer...

    Brooks born in the USA doesn't sound like your style, that's a protest song. Or maybe I have you all wrong

    You gotta dive in to his catalogue man. Listen to Putple Rain front to back. Watch the movie. Something.

    You think you know but maybe you don't. I think you will see. I once was in your shoes.

    One of his best songs isn't even on that list. "Erotic City" was a B-side on a single, never on an album. Great bar song back in the day!

    His former dealer said that he had been buying Dliaudid and fentanyl patches from him for 25 years.

    He had bad stage fright, Dliaudid is like a synthetic heroin. Very strong. Had it in the hospital. Very addicting. He combined this with Percocet, resulting in his death. Can't mix drugs.

    Jesus Christ, Prince had AIDS and refuse treatment?

    Prince 'was diagnosed with AIDS six months before he died and refused treatment because he believed God would heal him'
