    I wish they'd stop referring to Prince as only a 'singer'. The guy was a musician, and artist. He played pretty much every instrument going. He was also a producer and writer.

    It's insulting to be considered just a 'singer'. He was not just a singer.
    Kids only know Prince as a singer. Those who know better knew he was a musician and artist. People forget that one of his best selling albums he wrote the songs, played all the instruments and produced the whole thing.

    These days, many singers and just that: singers - with the only instruments they can play are on Guitar Hero.

    The L920 is not a replacement for my Z3 in any way whatsoever.... :P

    If I had some decent mid tier Android than maybe. But I'm not up for spending money on a phone at this moment in time.
    Makes sense. It's kinda why even though I was hesitant to grab the G4 in the condition that it was in, I'm glad I got it...now I can flash some stuff on my Maxx and not feel I HAVE to use my M8.

    I wonder if Sony is going to really stupid enough to skip the Z3 tablet compact for 6.0.1...

    Many people walk the thin line, just when you're famous more people hear about it. That's really the only difference.

    They had an interview with a guy on a show called Press Play on KCRW yesterday which I was listening to while driving home. The guy's name is Alan Light and he wrote a book called Let's Go Crazy : Prince and the Making of Purple Rain. He mentioned that he could play at least 35 instruments. When I heard that I was just blown away! Also I had to do a late night run down to Santa Monica and listened to the tribute shows they were playing on KCRW. The DJ Garth Trinidad is one of my favorites and it was great that he also happened to be a big Prince fan.

    Purple Rain, Raspberry Beret, Little Red Corvette are my favorites of all time....

    What a great artist, what a sad day indeed....

    The G4 is definitely not top tier money and instead of a decent mid tier makes a pretty good daily driver....a used Nexus 5X is not a bad idea either. Nowhere close to the expensive stuff.

    As much as I love those songs, my favorites are:

    1) When Doves Cry
    2) Diamonds and Pearls
    3) 1999

    Yeah he was pretty good with a guitar. But he was so much more than that.

    I'm not familiar with his work besides music, but this, what I just saw, that's just simply amazing.

    I watched it at work and my mouth dropped. You forget just how good he is. He was considered one of the best guitarist for good reason.

    His music is very eclectic and so was he as an individual.

    He loved performing and making music, as you can see in that video. That's the reason his fans loved him and why he's well respected in the industry.

    Always had a great respect for a man who can handle the ax well. Prince, Joe Walsh, Carlos Santana, Hendrix, George Benson..all world class ax men, but stellar musicians.

    You can see in the video as overpowering as Prince was, the best part was the opening with the ability to play with restraint, and how in timing he let his riffs go.

    Here's another example of true musicians at work:

    When was just starting to listen rock, more than 8 years ago, 'cause you know, I'm pretty young, I would search for the list of the greatest guitar players ever since I've always loved the sound of electric guitar. And he was on every single list, always better ranked than Slash and similar, I would always get pissed off thinking that he was not worthy, that he wasn't better than Slash and Vai. Now I see that I was soo wrong, as you said, I just stared at the screen watching him magnificently playing that ax without even trying hard.
    He kinda reminds of the way Gilmour plays, but it might just be me.

    School's over for me as of yesterday. I'll have around 10 days free and will make sure I use them wisely. Although I will be resting, I still have to learn Physics and Latin. 10 days should be more than enough for the task.
