In all the music threads here, I never saw the first Prince song.
Should have redecorated the place for " Little Stinker Month" in a lovely brown color.

Nice! I like C4s. I wanted a Corvette when I was 16-18 years old. Nice C1s were well under $1,000. I looked at a nice 1964 Stingray roadster for $1,400. The problem was not money but unobtainable insurance. Fortunately I have been able to drive many Corvettes but never owned one.

Wink Great point Tizzer - we still have time. Now all we can do is hope for that kind of sickenly brown-green-yellow & cream tones

^^nice Corvette! I always had a thing for Corvettes. Even when I was a kid! I have a yellow t-top 80s Corvette plastic toy with flip up headlights! Still have it today! My favorite has got to be the 1960s Stingray. In the past I chose the Stingray for racing on the original Gran Turismo! However I still have a soft spot for the 80s Corvette too. In my GTA playing days after discovering the weird wheels cheat for GTA: Vice City I was pleasantly surprised that one the Cars that had unlimited mass was the Banshee (the 80s Corvette) boy that was FUN! Smashing vehicles and getting chased yipee!

Just caught a news report which claimed he has apparently left an enormous catalog of unpublished music. Should keep fans at bay for a bit.

I just saw a story quoting one of his former girlfriends, it said Prince was having a lot of pain in his knees from performing in high heels. He was only 5' 2".

His friend/associate Kerry Gordy (whose father was Mr. Motown) said that he even played basketball in high heels.  He must've had one helluva short man's complex.

The song is not about a car at all!
 
The song is about sex, but it's just ambiguous enough not to offend most listeners. Many of Prince's earlier songs, like "Head," "Dirty Mind," and "Soft and Wet," were blatantly sexual, which scared off radio stations.

^^^Yea. Prince didn't sell-out too much, being he was an anti-gay seventh day adventist, eh?
Smart guy, but I was never a fan - he was 'A.M.', in my books.

He was Jehovah's Witness.

One of the top two or three rock guitarists of all time.

He was Jehovah's Witness.

Apologies - you are correct, but he was raised in seventh day adventist (both religions have the same roots, but indeed have differences).
 
As far as where he stands in the world of 'greatest guitarists', neeehhh...just another one in the big ol' line (*my* opinion), but one for the 'A.M.' crowd.

Back in the early 80s, he seemed to appeal to the same crowd that Madonna appealed to.

Well, naturally everybody has their own opinions about such matters, but as for him being for the 'A.M.' crowd, it is beyond me how, after watching the following two examples of his wizardry, anyone could seriously make that claim...



And beginning @ 3:27 this video



A truly amazing rock guitarist.

Yes, he was definitely part of the dance/club music genre early on.

But I think his style evolved somewhat and he began to do a bit more hard rock style music.

That might've somewhat coincided with and been in response to, the appearance on the music scene of Lenny Kravitz.

Maybe if he did more of that kind of music, I'd have liked him better.  His songs (or at least his hits) just didn't appeal to me.

Same here.

That and his clothing style.

Too flashy.

But he put out so much music on so many albums, it would've been nearly impossible to hear enough of it to make a fully informed judgement.

That SNL clip above, I had never seen or heard until the SNL tribute show last night.

Blew me away.

It was kind of that era of flashiness---Prince, Madonna, Boy George, etc.---and I just lumped them all together.

WinkPart of my 'lack of caring' probably has a lot to do with what you both say. Even though the Missus could and occasionally would hit 'The Dance Scene', I was not one for that - just not my style - much less what I came to consider little more than 'meaningless manipulated noise' which got folks up and 'actin' a fool'. Woo Hoo!
"Smile fo' me - sho' me yo' bling..."
Noise for 'Adrenaline Junkies' was the way I saw that stuff...my stuff had to have meaning and not leave me tied up in knots. 
And the likes of Lenny Kravitz? Almost a 'calmed down/disciplined Hendrix'. He just reminded me so much of Hendrix at the outset that I don't think I can view him in his own light, which is probably just not fair, nor right.
Neeehhh...not for me...and maybe I rebelled, leaning toward just as useless, yet different (say, like Iggy Pop's "Pain" - one of my more recent favsLOL).
