    The word 'genius' is widely abused in our hyperbolic age. Prince Rogers Nelson was a genius. A multi-instrumentalist, a brilliant songwriter, a fine performer, an a grade talent scout, a snappy dresser, a talented producer & an underrated guitar player - the man could shred! He had an unmistakable style, and if his output wasn't always consistent it was proof of his relentless drive to create. I imagine Paisley park is choc full of unreleased material. I hope the executors of his estate respect the man's legacy.

    Dearly beloved, we are gathered here to celebrate this thing called life.

    He could hold his own in any genre of music. The lead he plays at the end of My guitar gently weeps is smoking.
