Half the sings he recorded before Purple Rain were filthy.

He must be Delirious

Vera Christina said...

Don't care. Love him.

Dena said...

30 year anniversary of Purple Rain this week - a very big deal in MN!

VIPblonde said...

Love me some Prince! :)

Oopsy_Daisy said...

Meh. I'm like that. Swearing in my car when no one is around gives me a lunatic's amount of pleasure. :P

Jessica Larson said...

Everyone swears when they're frustrated but most pretend not to.

Lee said...

Like everybody's mom and dad and teacher.

Tongue N. Cheek said...

I don't think so, Charlie. It's just that when it comes to swearing, he's a One Man Jam.

OneEyeCharlie said...

Perhaps he just saves it for when he's driving his Little Red Corvette?

it took forever said...

just luv that guy, such a diva he is

sandybrook said...

He cursed out my girl simply because she wore a Raspberry Beret

Tongue N. Cheek said...

Well, it's upsetting when you're on a nice drive in the Mountains, and you get cut off by Just Another Sucker in a Raspberry Beret.

OneEyeCharlie said...

Is Sandy's girlfriend Darling Nikki?

Gayeld said...

The kind you find in a second hand store?

TalksTooMuch said...

I heard he hasn't driven since 1999

OneEyeCharlie said...

When that happens, TNC, just blow them a Kiss.

TalksTooMuch said...

Maybe he was just mad that his coffee wasn't right? Cream! Jeez! How hard is it to remember to Get it On Top!

Bacon Ranch said...

I love this. Can you imagine opening your door to Prince?

No Anna Stasia charlie

TalksTooMuch said...

Did I tell you guys about the last time I got coffee? When I was walking along and saw Doves flying in formation? Made me Cry

Tongue N. Cheek said...

What he doesn't realize is that a Lovin' Cup of coffee with no cream is Better Than You Think.

Tongue N. Cheek said...

In fairness, we all swear at our Computer. Blue screen of death will get ya every time.

Sherry said...

He'll come down on you like a Housequake if you're cussing around him?

Shelly Shell said...

I remember him saying in an old interview that he does go door to door, but puts on a disguise.

TalksTooMuch said...

I bet his car seats are all Pink and feel like Cashmere

auntliddy said...

I always wonder(ed), what is this guys deal? He acts like an alien on earth- the years of silence, the whole is he or isnt he married, did he or didnt he lose a newborn baby, the whole symbol thing instead of his name as a protest. Wth? Then there are his so called jokes which are really cruel ways to treat people. He never lived up to his potential as writer and perfomer after purple rain era. So i wonder, what is it? Drink? Drugs? MI?

Brenda L said...

ya'll. Gett Off talking about Prince like this.

Jessica Larson said...

I think what's happened to him is what has happened to most celebs they become isoloated & only have employees for family & friends & lovers.

Jeannie said...

Have you seen this?

Seven of Eleven said...

Good article, @Bacon! I was thinking how cool that would be, until he went all Kirk Cameron. :/

AndrewBW said...

A great performance right here.

Dhani Harrison, Tom Petty, Steve Winwood, Jeff Lynne, Prince and others perform "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" at the 2004 Rock Hall induction of George Harrison, with Prince going nuts on Clapton's solo.

(I never much cared for Jeff Lynne but he does a find job here too.)

Amartel said...

So what?

Sherry said...

Wow Andrew! That was awesome. I had no idea how much Dhani looked like George..I loved Harrison and still like Jeff Lynne.

figgy said...

I am 100% of the Prince era. Purple Rain came out when I was in college, we used to play it nonstop. Loved it, loved him.

Even so, I never quite understood why there is this aura of OMGPRINCEISSUCHAGENIUS around him...? He's good, yes. But a mind-blowing genius? Not really. Don't see it or get it.

Lady Heisenberg said...

^5 Stew McG!!!

AKM said...

Ah, great post, Andrew. Loves me some George and a good George tribute.

Bein' a hypocrite about swearing...eh. Guess it's a Sign O' the Times.

AndrewBW said...

@Sherry - Glad you liked it. The first time I saw Prince fall backwards into the audience I laughed out loud. He's a genius, but he's such a hot dog!

Dena said...

I did! Love it : )

Dena said...

Very cool! There is a Scorcese-directed documentary about George Harrison that is worth watching, I think it's on HBO on demand - it has some awesome footage and the photos are out of this world.

AKM said...

@Dena - LIVING IN THE MATERIAL WORLD! Yes, it's a fabulous documentary! There is an accompanying coffee-table book that Olivia helped put together, and I adore that, too.

Vera Christina said...

Andrew BW, thanks for the link - love it!

NaughtyNurse said...

Get the fuck out of here! No fucking way!

TalksTooMuch said...

Yes fucking way. I couldn't fucking believe it either

NaughtyNurse said...

bellaluna said...

Get Off his case. ;)

Ms B'have said...

What a CONTROVERSY! :p
