Three Prince CDs Inspires Three Prince Posts - The Purple Badass

It's kinda hard to believe that Prince has been in the public consciousness for almost 31 years now. He is a force of nature. He's the best of Jimi Hendrix, Sly Stone, Marc Bolan, James Brown and George Clinton and that's an understatement in describing the breadth of his genius. He can outfunk, outrock, outscream, outjam the so called "best" music acts performing today. Like our First Lady - and Alice Walker - he makes the color purple cool. He is so badass - he can change his name to unpronounceable symbol and still have fans screaming his (um) name. Still need proof? Check out Prince 's solo during the George Harrison tribute at the 2004 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. He paid homage to his fellow inductee with a performance that not only affirms his greatness but shows what a real "guitar hero" looks like.
