This story just brings together so many things that I love, including pancakes.

Over 9000 internets to Prince on this one.

Well done.

But I still wish it were Rick James' new album.

And actually with the pancakes. That's fantastic. I love it when people have a sense of humor, and Charlie Murphy's Prince story was hilarious and surreal.

CSB time, also Murphy-related: I met Lionel Richie at an after-show party about 15 years ago. The first question that popped into my mind was what he thought of Eddie Murphy as Buckwheat singing "Unce, tice, fee tines a mady".

/He said he really got a kick out of it...

This is too awesome for words.

CSB Time: I had gone on a couple of dates with this girl and we were still getting to know each other. She was a bit of a hippie chick which I loved, and we had both expressed an interest in the Grateful Dead already so I knew things were on the right track. Well, I'm on the phone with her and I'm flipping through a Rolling Stone magazine and there's an add for the new Prince album (Symbol one) and I see it and go, "Hell yes, a new Prince album!"  Well, I immediately wonder how a hippie Dead loving check is going to react to my love of Prince, and she says, "I love Prince!" I knew right then I had a keeper.

So how does the story end?  I married that girl. We have three kids, the oldest goes off to start college next week, and are in the process of living happily ever after.

dig if you will a picture, of Prince just destroying "Morning Dew".  I can totally hear that.  Actaully, how about a Purple Rain > Dew > Purple Rain sandwich?

/with a "Rain" encore like the GD did from time to time
//CSB: Calexico does an awesome Tomorrow Never Knows, with the melody to "Within You Without You" snuck in, and towards the end, they throw in the "sunshine, I don't mind" chorus to Rain.  yeah, it rules your face

I feel obligated to say this in any Prince thread: if youve
never seen him live, do it. Do it now. It doesnt matter what it costs. It doesn't matter if you're a fan, or not. Even if you aren't, you will be by the end of the show.

No one can put on a show like Prince, no one can play guitar like him. It isn't enough to see on video. You have to be in the room to really feel it.

I say again: before you depart this earth, go see this weird, effeminate purple wearing midget play his guitar. You can thank me later.

Agreed. I've seen him 3 times....easily the best concerts I have ever been to.

gilgigamesh: I say again: before you depart this earth, go see this weird, effeminate purple wearing midget play his guitar. You can thank me later.


yeah, i'll generally agree.  seen him three times i think.  no one does what he does.  at one show he played every instrument onstage except sax (but not at the same time, that would be impossible).  and everything he played, he destroyed.  guitar and piano, duh, but he took Larry Graham's bass and the way he popped it and made that thing thump, you were like, "huh?"  and then drums.  just insane.

i passed on his last few tours because of ticket price.  the little club run from a few months ago, face was i think $280.  FACE.  granted, small club and all, but.....I'm not paying $280 on a work night.

/and neither were others. two days of "early show, late show" were announced
//ticket sales were so bad one night was cancelled
///then, some fans didn't get the memo that there would be only one show.  they showed up at like, 10PM for the 11PM show, were turned away.  They real mad.  Don't know hwo that ended, but people were furious.
 
2013-08-19 03:57:01 PM  
Pancakes aside, that was quite the funky groove.

/Saw Prince in a small-ish venue. Great show, but not in my top 5. IIRC, he didn't play a lot of hits.

Ok, since this is a Prince thread, I'm going ask for some input about a Prince song.  The song is Little Red Corvette.  On one line, he said that 'the ride is so smooth, that it's like riding in a limousine.'  So the question is: was he complimenting her or dissing her since there are two ways to interpret this:

1) a compliment since it is a luxurious ride
2) a diss since it is VERY roomy inside and since the ride is so smooth, you barely feel a thing.

Ok, help me out with this one, Farkers.
 
2013-08-19 04:00:44 PM  
And this just gives more support to my belief that Prince is superior to Michael Jackson in just about every way.

Neither. Prince is gay so he has no idea what a woman might feel like.

/ducks!

I wholeheartedly agree.

Prince is the most underrated guitarist of all time.

His Purple Majesty is a phenomenal guitar player.

I used to work venue security in college.    I always tell people  the best live performance I've ever seen was Prince's sound check.

The girl in this story is a complete and total sex addict and a slob.  She has used condoms laying around and pictures of people she sleeps with.  For some reason he wants a lasting relationship with this woman.  She's probably hot but insane.  I bet she has 14 cats and they all live inside.
Anyways, he describes her as a limousine because the ride is smooth.  I'm guessing he describes it as such to make the point that a) he enjoys it and b) she's not just some crazy bucking bronco leaving bruises and breaking lamps.

So I'm going with option 1, as a description of her technique.

Giltric: Prince is the most underrated guitarist of all time.



David Hidalgo (Los Lobos) wants some of that too.  He maybe won't go down as an all-time great, but in terms of "what he can do" versus "how many people know him" is one of the all time worst signal-to-noise ratios.  he is an amazingly versatile players that can absolutely stand onstage with anyone and duel, yet.....people think all he did was 'La Bamba' 25+ years ago.

Well, the other interpretation is that since she is a total sex addict etc. she might be totally 'loose' and the punchline to Shane's joke:
