RIP Prince

Wow - he was 57, I thought he was younger than that. Another legend gone.

Shocker Sad

Prince always had a lot of issues with labels and more recently streaming and the rest of it. That seems to include YT also. There really isn't a lot of video of him and some have been scrubbed of audio based on copyright.

Prince Rogers Nelson

We suggest watching this remarkable 1982 Prince concert in its entirety. It'll help.

Prince Was an Early Fan of the Web, but Grew to Hate What it Did to Artists
by Mathew Ingram @mathewi APRIL 21, 2016

Streaming services gave too much control and revenue to record labels, he said.

Prince, the pioneering rock and pop musician who passed away suddenly at his Minneapolis home on Thursday afternoon, had a complicated relationship with the web. He was one of the first to sell an album online, but in the years before his death he spent his time taking as much of his music off the Internet as he possibly could....

Wow! That's a lot of folk who are confusing Prince with Freddie Mercury. I wonder why.

I can't say that I was a fan of Prince's "music," but nonetheless it is sad, given his age. I wonder what will become of the memoir that he was working on?

Haley offered some sage advice: go see/hear your musical heroes/legends while you can!

RIP Prince.

RE: RIP
I tweeted out my video of Morgan singing her Prince cover "Call My Name" w/ a quote from a tweet she'd made earlier, responding to a fan who mentioned it. Morgan retweeted it, I got a couple tweets tagging MSNBC in response. I wasn't sure why they would be tagging MSNBC until I saw Morgan posted this instagram

Fucking shitty circumstances to tell my #Prince story. Can. Not. Believe. It.

Also this video of Prince's guitar solo on "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" at George Harrison's tribute at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony in 2004... Rolling Stone posted a quick aritcle about it, proclaiming that Prince's solo..."could be the single greatest musical moment at any Rock Hall induction ceremony in its history"

PMJ hasn't done a #prince cover, but listen to @morganajames' version of "Call My Name" - the man himself loved that version

Thanks scott. Tough day. ?
