To put my opinion of this in perspective, Prince for me is a bigger loss to music than Michael Jackson. Amazingly talented song writer and multi instrumentalist. I can't understand how anyone could call him overrated.

Prince was overrated - I thought he was 5"4 but he was actually closer to 5"2.

Massively overrated I thought.

Anyway, it's been a tough year.
Overrated:crazy:

Underated if anything.

Went to see him live and he was an amazing performer and looked so young for his age.

shocked.

well at least I saw him before he died. Superb performer, one of the best gigs I have ever attended, easily the best big arena gig I've ever seen, massive loss to the world of music.

RIP sad loss.
I was never a massive fan, did some stuff I loved and other stuff a bit too "experimental" which roughly translated to wierd. A lot of my mates were huge fans and I get why, he is a huge loss to the music industry and was an innovator as well as being a very talented singer, songwriter and musician.

The only thing I remember Prince for is not a good thing at all . He played a cover of Radiohead's Creep at a festival but didn't want anyone to post videos of the song on Youtube. He then did the same when he covered Crazy Woman, Dirty Train by These Arms are Snakes.

So it was ok for him to flesh out his sets with songs written by other artists, but it's wasn't ok for you and me to put up videos of said songs on Youtube. Arsehole.

I'm trying to figure out how requesting live performances of certain songs not be uploaded online makes him an arsehole. Perhaps it was out of respect for the original artists? Your comment seems a bit harsh to me.

Any thoughts on the sax solo in this one, Paggers?

Great performance anyway

So many great videos of him online, he could do it all. Sad loss at such a relatively young age.

It certainly wasn't respect, as both bands later said he couldn't stop people from uploading videos when the songs he covered weren't his in the first place. I used to respect him even though I was never a fan, but he lost all the credibility he had with a lot of music fans after this little incident.
