No disrespect but, if Michael Jackson was a genius, what does that make of Prince? Incredibly under-rated on this site; he should be in the top 10, easily.

Incredibly overrated guy. Had a style and could lay a few instruments, but his scrawny voice matched his scrawny body. Overly emotive to the point of silliness.

From 9999 06/19/2018 15:43
All due respect to Michael Jackson and all the Pixies and Smiths out there, but this guy was the definitive artist of the 80s. He dominated the decade like no other musician. Nine records in ten years, all of them ranging from good to absolutely brilliant. That doesn't happen very often. His proficiency, creativity and originality were outstanding, his talents as a producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist were borderline inhuman, his vocal range was huge and his overall impact in the music landscape is undeniable. He was the whole package, a once-of-a-kind genius who could do it all. There is no doubt in my mind that he was one of the most brilliant minds in modern music, and as far as solo musicians go, if someone deserves to be up there in the top 10 alongside Bowie and Dylan, that's definitely Prince.

What else is there to say? Prince was one of the best pop acts of all time. Class, style and coolness rivaled by no one else, and musical innovation that most could only dream of. A talent whose influence we may never fully realise.

A very talented man. He nailed singing, dancing and playing instruments... But as song writer and producer, i think he's too much overrated. His best work, Purple Rain, isn't that good thing the people talk about.

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.
