He's my favorite musician of all time. No one else combined so many genres of music in the most satisfying way. His death was a shock and a devastating loss. Thankfully he left a huge discography. I still am having trouble wrapping my head around it.

Prince is a Godlike genius and probably the greatest living musician. He is the finest do it yourself musician, with a prodigous Musical talent that eclipses all comers. He is truly a quasar. I have been a huge Prince maniac since 1991 and have all the albums and many of his bootlegs, DVDs of concerts, unreleased albums and books. I am endlessly fascinated by this Modern Mozart.
