Pop Music Epitaph/Obit (Again?)

Our Prince seems to have actually been quite a "king" judging by his immense cult following.
To me he was simply a prominent and prolific singer/songwriter/record producer who had hit records and also wrote songs for others.
A "superstar", along the same line as Elton John, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Billy Joel, Lionel Richie, Paul Simon, and so forth.

All I know about this guy is his 1963 instrumental version of MEMPHIS

More and more my audio disc collection is transforming into a pop music obituary.


  1. I was never a massive Prince fan, in fact I prefer his songs sung by other artists. Like Sinead O'Conner's version of Nothing Compares 2 U

  2. Or The Bangles' MANIC MONDAY.

    Prince's cult following is a bit unnerving to me. The guy was only just another "song-and-dance man" already.
