Which prince?

ucme's avatar

Put it this way, he ain’t fresh anymore

Will Smith is dead?

ucme's avatar

That would be the implication, neither confirmed or denied at this point

My Guitar Gently Weeps today.

Prince’s Super Bowl press conference was better than almost every Super Bowl half time show.

RIP, Prince
Thank you for everything!

The man’s talents were not to my taste. But those talents were genuine and great. So long genius.

Yep, never was a Prince fan, liked a couple of his sings but, never the less, RIP Prince.

I’m taken aback. I am so glad I saw him perform. He was a uniquely talented individual. So sad.

Don’t confuse Prince, the musician with FRESH PRINCE of Bel Air who is Will Smith, the actor.
Will Smith has NOT died. @ucme

When Michael Jackson died, I was really surprised but I didn’t cry.

I was just as surprised when I heard the news today. However, the tributes to Rogers on a local TV station were so touching that if I was a dove, I’d have been flyin’, cryin’ Brian.

I really liked some of his lesser known tunes, such as Peach, Raspberry Beret (beautiful video), U Got the Look (w/Sheena Easton), and I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man.

If there is a heaven, he’ll soon be jamming with Jimi.

@tinyfaery

Where did you see him perform?

ragingloli's avatar

Truth be told, I do not know a single one of his songs.
To me, he is but an obscure and meaningless name that I might have heard someone mention at a nonspecific point in the past.

Well thats very sad. I’m shocked to hear this. I wasn’t a Prince fan, but its always sad to lose another human being and a great talent.

I love Prince’s music and was a huge fan for many years. He was amazing live. Played every instrument on stage at one point. And his guitar playing was not unlike Jimmi Hendrix.

So very sad.

Coo-hoo-hoo…

I respected the man very much. RIP, formerly AFKAP.
If there’s a rock-and-roll heaven, he is the MC!

“And his guitar playing was not unlike Jimmi Hendrix.”

GMTA. ;-)

@Brian1946: Damn tootin’

And I will add this:
Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, Steve Winwood, and Prince perform While My Guitar Gently Weeps
Tribute to George Harrison

Stay till the end to see Prince on guitar.

So now he’s The Former Artist Known Formerly As Prince?
He had a lot of talent. I particularly liked Diamonds and Pearls. It had a sick instrumental.

When you feed someone the Will Smith gag & they take it literally, give your heads a wobble

thorninmud's avatar

Huh, I had no idea he was a Jehovah’s Witness. That must have been a tough line to walk.

si3tech's avatar

@ucme What is the “Will Smith gag?”

ucme's avatar

In response to “which prince?” I wrote “he ain’t fresh anymore” as in dead, as in fresh prince of bel air, amazed this needs spelling out.
An example of a derailed thread due to a bullshit answer, hey-ho

My local NPR radio station is playing a 2 hour Prince tribute now (Friday April 22 9:30PM Central)

90 minutes remaining if you can catch it.
