Default Prince

I never paid him much attention, but for the last two days I have learned that I have liked his music a lot. Sad.

Can't say I was a big fan of his, he was a gifted musician. Seems he may have been fighting some of the same demons others like him have faced.

I can relate to his personality a lot.

I was not a fan but I did grow up with his music. Talented guy.

I'm a little surprised he's getting the same treatment as M.J. & Elvis. I probably liked him more than either of those two but I would not have put him in the same category.

I thought he changed his name from Prince to "The Entertainer". Or am I thinking of someone else.

I think they called him , the singer once known as Prince, when he changed his name to whatever the picture is.

My Wife said he did change it to the entertainer then back to prince. He must have been a very confused young lad.

I have heard that the symbol phase was to keep his ex-music distributor from getting his money. After the issue was settled, he changed his name back.
