I am floored by this. One of the truly formative influences of my youth. Just like Bowie, refused to be defined. A true artist.

Thanks Bert....

I am thinking we grew up with that music....as much as we love earlier and some later rock....but they were the songs that had the Dava Nightclub bopping.

Prince dead. Still can't get over it. :(

That's brilliant. The respect he has in the music world is just amazing. I'm a bit purple eyed ATM, but has there ever been a more complete performer? He did everything so well.

I was at New Orleans Jazz Fest this past weekend, lots of Prince tributes - Pearl Jam was probably the best one.

Hallam had great bands on as I recall; bit far for me if you had a few. :(
