Prince RIP
« on: April 25, 2016, 11:32:55 PM »
Another one down, Have to give Prince his props, great entertainer, multi instrumentalist etc, etc. If you lived through the eighties you heard him all over the radio and all over MTV. Purple Rain was a classic and he had several big hits. Even as a metal head in the eighties, It was hard not to pay attention when he'd cut loose with some killer guitar work. I enjoyed most of his 80's work but didn't follow his music as much there after when he changed his styles. Hell of an entertainer, front man and musician. way too young to go for sure. Pretty shocked to hear of this one.

Here's a few selections I enjoy. I was more partial to his guitar oriented work.
