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.

Prince is a one of a kind artist. No doubt about it. His work is a little inconsistent, but when Prince hits the nail on the head, there's no one like him. In my opinion, he is a genius and one of the 5 greatest living musicians. Very eclectic work.

Purple Rain is an undeniable classic, Sign O The Times is amazing, and albums like Around The World In a Day, Parade and 1999 have a lot of good songs on them as well.

Prince hooked me with 'Soft and Wet' and its been a wonderful addiction ever since. He's shown his creative genius, artistic talent, and sexiness all at once. By far my favorite musical artist. Iconic but eccentric in so many ways. I just love his music!!!

Prince is a mixture of Little Richard, James Brown, George Clinton and of course Prince himself. He has made so many albums it's hard to keep count. He is funky, soulful and a brilliant guitarist. My favourite albums are 1999, Purple Rain, Parade, Sign O the Times, Lovesexy,and Emancipation.

Prince to me is in the same category as Michael Jackson. Only Prince would come a poor second. I have never really got him as an artist, but you cannot take away his talent and originality.
