    George Strait is probably my favorite musical artist of all time (which is weird, because I don’t even consider myself a “country” guy), but Merle Haggard’s version of Seashores of Old Mexico blows George’s out of the water.

    Love me some Merle Haggard. He will be missed.

    Currently listening to Purple Rain. Let’s Go Crazy and I Would Die 4 U/Baby I’m a Star are two of my all-time favorite Prince songs. I know some people like his funkier stuff but I preferred his more pop music.

    He is definitely a legend and will be missed.

    I hate to start the debate but…Purple Rain might possibly be one of the few perfect songs in music history. Great lyrics, great singing, great musicianship, and an awesome guitar solo. It still astounds me to this day that it along with a couple of other songs on the record were recorded live, though with some studio edits, but still had an amazing sound. To this day, and it has happened a couple times already today, when I hear Purple Rain the hairs on my arms stand up when I hear it. I am not a front to back Prince fan in regards to his music but I will always respect the talent he was and how he influenced music during the 80’s and beyond.

    I’m definitely no music expert. For me a lot of music is where it takes me when I hear a song. I can still vividly see the people I’m with at some janky amusement park in Florida, riding an indoor version of the scrambler with Little Red Corvette blaring through the speakers. 30+ years later when I hear that song it still conjures up a positive emotion for this very reason.

    Prince is probably a guy who will never be truly appreciated for his musical ability but I’m sure his impact runs deep for many that enjoyed his music.

    What a performance. IIRC, Prince refused to let MTV monitor the rehearsals, released no details. Hence, frantic camerawork to not show anything too racy. And it was racy. Gett Off (MTV Music Awards):

    Edit: forgot about the added verse, that is rather rare to hear….

    I know you have mentioned you weren’t that into him/80s music….but the dude is a musical genius, influenced countless other acts, paved the way for artists to own their own music, and of course, one of us.

    Dylan is the only other musician that I think could have this impact upon his passing (for Minnesotans). Yes, that huge.

    Whoa, whoa, whoa. I think you need to separate what I said and what you’re adding. :lol:

    I said I wasn’t a fan of his music or most 80s music.

    I never said he was without talent or anything remotely close to that.

    I didn’t mean to imply that, and if that what was interpreted, I apologize. :oops:

    I am actually in a funk b/c of his passing. Didn’t think I’d be, but here I am. Dude was awesome.

    Just got back from First Ave. Lots of tears, dancing, and singing – a great evening of celebrating life and music.

    Between Bowie, Prince, and George Martin, 2016 can fuck right off …

    IMO, Prince is bigger than Dylan. I know some will disagree, but I think the impact of Prince’s death is larger than Dylan’s will be. Because Prince embraced his Minnesota-ness, Dylan doesn’t give that vibe, from what I can tell.

    I think this is probably true. Everything I’ve read over the past day seems to show that while he was rightfully smug in his superiority, he was also a pretty damn good person. I love that he also promoted small, local business like Fetus.

    But the stories that have come out are awesome. I liked this one from Gawker/Jezebel:

    I insulted him to his face at a concert. Really small venue event for charity. You were never more than three people away from the stage. The show started two hours late and after standing outside in stilettos waiting to get in the venue, I was not in the mood. I was standing dead center in front of the stage, being seriously pissed, when Prince stopped right in front of me and asked “What’s wrong with you?” I replied “I’m not feeling you.” He blinked, kind of taken aback and the moved on. Five minutes later, two moving mountains, posing as his body guards, parted the crowd and made a bee line towards me. I thought, “Oh, I’m about to be thrown out this piece.” They said to me “We hear you’re not feeling the Artist?” I said “Nope.” They asked me to open my hand. They placed four gold engraved guitars picks in my palm. “Feeling better?” Oh, yeah. Five minutes later, I see what can only be the tour manager pointing my direction, standing with a crowd of crew. He walks out, laughing, asking “We hear you’re not feeling the Artist? Here are passes to the afterparty.” We went to the party and stayed till dawn. I didn’t get to talk to him but he did acknowledge me. The rest of the band kept coming up, saying “Did you really say that to him?” all night.

    One of the stories I read on Facebook yesterday was this:

    When Prince bought the land in Chanhassen to build Paisley Park, he bought land that a local spur snowmobile trail passed through. Prince built Paisley Park, and put up security fences, cutting off the trail. The local snowmobile club went to Paisley Park, asked to talk to Prince, and he agreed to see them. They told him that he was cutting off the trail, and asked if they could pass by on his land. He not only agreed, he paid to put gates in his security fence for the snowmobile trail to pass through, and just asked that snowmobilers close the gates after they passed through.

    God, I didn’t realize he was such a righteous guitar player. I mean I knew he was good, but I had never seen the video of While My Guitar Gently Weeps. I never became a fan so I never really dug into his performances like that. I also didn’t realize he had such breadth in terms of genre.

    You don’t find international superstars who are so pragmatic and down to earth. Kanye would have set the dogs on these guys and probably bemoaned the whole situation on Twitter.

    Prince just seems to be a good person.

    This has hit me harder than I ever would’ve imagined. I still just can’t believe it…more like don’t want to believe it. I’ve had so many personal experiences involving Prince (mentioned some of them in the Concert thread). I was a semi fan before…but when I watched him play guitar 10ft in front of me, I was blown away and hooked forever. Still one of the most amazing concert experiences of my life. I’ll admit, I don’t care for some of his more recent stuff, but, not caring for ALL of his work is almost to be expected since his music crossed so many genres.

    Damn. Even though I didn’t know him personally, I know I’m not alone in feeling like I lost a brother yesterday. :(

    Apparently Prince has specified when his huge collection of unreleased music will be released to the public. The quote I read said “Most will be 100s of years after we all die”.

    My dad appraised Jimmy Jam’s house when I was in High School.

    That’s the closest thing I have to a Prince story.

    That’s kind of lame. I always thought he was more of the mindset that hated how record labels wouldn’t let him release more music than he already did.

    How many of you have been playing Prince music that you haven’t listened to in awhile?

    May favorite Prince concert occurred at Glam Slam in the early 90’s (92,93 or 94). I was in my office downtown (about 5 min walk to Glam Slam) with the radio on. I am working and listening to tunes when the DJ comes on and announces that Prince has decided to hold a concert at Glam slam and tickets are going on sale in an hour. I went over grabbed 4 tickets. The show was amazing!!! Glam Slam wasn’t that big so a very intimate setting. As usual Prince opened with some weird and new stuff along with new musicians and then launched into a rocking house party with all his hits at the time. Glam Slam had an upper level and I remember the Phoenix Suns being up there (Barkley and Kevin Johnson). It was a crazy night and I stood 10 ft from Prince all night as he killed it. It has been stated earlier in this thread but his guitar playing ability was just ridiculously good. He surely ranks as one of the best guitarists ever.

    I listened to Bump yesterday and he had Jimmy Jam on. Go listen to the podcast if you missed it. Awesome interview and stories.

    I know I will miss Prince!

    Hell of a celebration last night to remember a true genius. I didn’t get back home until 5 a.m. The scenes in downtown were very moving. “Purple Rain” is such a perfect song.

    I know you have mentioned you weren’t that into him/80s music….but the dude is a musical genius, influenced countless other acts, paved the way for artists to own their own music, and of course, one of us.

    Dylan is the only other musician that I think could have this impact upon his passing (for Minnesotans). Yes, that huge.

    IMO, Prince is bigger than Dylan. I know some will disagree, but I think the impact of Prince’s death is larger than Dylan’s will be. Because Prince embraced his Minnesota-ness, Dylan doesn’t give that vibe, from what I can tell.

    Pretty funny that you would invite disagreement then resort to a weak comeback like that when someone shockingly disagreed with your opinion. :lol:

    Both are great talents but Dylan is an absolute giant compared to Prince. Sorry, it’s not even close.

    Does one have to be bigger than the other? Can’t we just agree they’re both supremely talented iconic artists, along with the likes of Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson, etc.

    IMO, the thing with Dylan was he was one of the big faces of an entire movement (yeah, they were hippies and all, but a movement nonetheless) along with all the great music he did. The outrage when he went electric was deafening. Prince was just an amazing musician.

    I get that. But the influence that Prince had on the music scene over his life was also amazing. You were the one who said “Primce was just an amazing musician”. He was so much more than that to millions of fans.

    Musically? I don’t know if anyone can touch Prince’s talent as a whole; if anything, simply the amount of instruments he could play/had mastered.

    Dylan was more than just music/fashion/etc, though, and that’s not a knock on Prince.

    My point being, I think Dylan MAY be the only MN thing bigger than Prince. Dylan is at least Prince’s equal, all things considered. Both were beyond awesome, for what they did and influenced.

    I think it’s a factor in the discussion that Prince claimed Minnesota far more actively than Dylan … I feel like singing “Let’s Go Crazy” in the streets last night was just as much a celebration of Minneapolis music as it was the life of Prince. I don’t think I would get that same experience from Dylan. So many stories coming out of him going music shopping at the Fetus, or attending a show at the Dakota in his final week … the guy seems genuinely proud of the local music scene.

    Exactly. Dylan is just some guy born here, Prince was MN. He was truly one of us.

    “Some” of this tribute stuff I keep reading on social media for Prince is becoming an overkill.

    I won’t even begin to claim that Dylan was proud of his MN roots. I know better (and given where he grew up, I don’t blame him*).

    *My dad grew up near Dylan, and Dylan actually asked my aunt out on a date in HS. She said no. Why? “He was…off. Kinda weird.”

    And that is a huge part of why Prince is a bigger deal in this state.

    I don’t blame Robert Zimmerman either, but the rest of your post is garbage. Where he grew up had little to do with it. Dylan would have likely been received similarly regardless of where he grew up – with few exceptions. If you think he would have fit in that much better in most places at the time I think you are kidding yourself, and I am not going to pretend the Range doesn’t have its issues.

My dad has even said he’d never go back there, and hates that area. Having been in that area a few times…yeah…not a good area to be any kind of different.

    Switching gears a bit … who would be your “Mt. Rushmore of MN Music”? For me, it’s:

    – Prince
    – Dylan
    – Paul Westerberg
    – Dan Wilson

    Like I said, given the timeframe we are talking about, he wouldn’t have fit in well hardly anywhere. He was very “different” as many artists are and many are not appreciated at the time. Maybe he would have fit in better in a big city, but that is such a small percentage of the state. The point is, with maybe an exception or two, he could have been born in any town in Mn and likely had the same experience.

    Ok, I guess I didn’t read your original post that way – and I am not going to pretend I am not biased considering I live about 2.1 miles from the house he grew up in. His parents sold the house to my aunt and uncle and there are some pretty close connections. I grew up with autographed pictures of him laying around in my grandma’s basement and saw boxes of his stuff that was left behind. My cousin’s bedroom had RZ carved into the wood on the wall. My family has a great appreciation for him but nobody would pretend he wasn’t different. Heck, if he walked into a room of people in 2016 and they didn’t know him, most would say the same. The point I am trying to make is he would have likely had a similar experience growing up anywhere in MN at the time, it just happened to be on the Iron Range. Maybe Minneapolis would have been a better fit but I doubt even St Paul would have been much better in the 40’s and 50’s for someone as eccentric as Dylan.

    And I can definitely see that point. From what I’ve seen, he’s softened his anger (?) in recent years, has become more accepting. But yeah, at the time…he had no place here.

    Even the coasts were ‘traditional’ then. Really traditional. In the 50s and very early 60s it was just the way it was. I mean you had a couple really small pockets of Bohemia – Greenwich / SoHo in NYC and North Beach near City Lights in San Fran… Other than those neighborhoods – east coast west coast and pretty much every where was stereotypical 1950s. South was worse – obviously worse – but 50s culture was pretty well entrenched for both good and bad (it wasn’t all bad just sort of weird).

    Thing is many great artists are as much a product of their time as they are their own talents. I think that applies with both Dylan and Prince.
