Prince

Admit it! We all love this guy! Anyone who has even the littlest bit of funk in their body has had a Prince experience and liked it! Everyone loves their Purple Rain! This guy is so great that his greatness has driven him bat shit crazy! We all know about the androgyny, the name changes and have heard of his eccentric diva behavior but if you aren't convinced he's crazy yet then it's well worth it to hear this account of Prince World from Kevin Smith:

Prince Part 1


Prince Part 2


This is one artist where I really need say no more so here's a launch with my personal Prince picks:

Prince-When-Doves-Cry-409476.jpg

Prince and The Revolution-When Doves Cry
(The obvious classic)


Prince-7---Seven-11324.jpg

Prince and The New Power Generation-Seven
(my personal favorite)

Prince and the New Power Generation-Money Don't Matter 2 Night

Re: "The Official" Prince Thread

Your right! I'm not usually in favor of guitar solos/jamming but that was awesome! Kudos for finding something Prince on youtube as well! :grinthumb

Re: "The Official" Prince Thread

The dudes a genius.. Way ahead of his times as far as I'm concerned.. Does nasty songs tastefully.. Besides the movie Purple Rain, I liked his not so famous movie "Under The Cherry Moon". He plays a Gigolo over in europe. Falls in love with a wealthy man's daughter who try's his best to keep them apart.
I could list a couple hundred songs by him I like..
He must not allow you tube to display many of his video's because I couldn't find the deep cut tracks I like besides the very popular one's.
But I have most of his albums and spin them once in awhile..:grinthumb

No Princeworld has a very close eye on youtube apparently. :tongue: I actually watched all three Prince movies for the first time ever in a one week stretch last year! Under A Cherry Moon I'm sure must be an acquired taste because I found it slapstick and cornball as hell! :lmao:

Re: "The Official" Prince Thread

^^ I caught your you tube heads up after I posted..:heheh:

Yer right about it being corny.. Jerome (His Co-Star) was Morris Day's (The Time) side kick for the longest time. I was a bit surprised to see him in a movie roll with Prince. But even in Purple Rain they worked together.
But it was a cool effect to shoot it in Black and White..

Yeah it was! You can tell he was paying an homage to earlier comedies by I believe, Buster Keaton! Very stylistic as everything Prince is!



Hey Thumper, it's really a trip to here that Kevin Smith story about working with Prince! It's lengthy but hilarious! :lmao:
