Know what today is? It's the birth date of one of the greatest musicians to ever click-clack his high heels across a floor. Yes, we are celebrating the 55th (!) birthday of Prince Rogers Nelson with Part Two of our Prince Podcast!
Once again, Big Money is joined by the team of Mike Duquette, Zack (Dr. Gonzo) Stiegler and Michael Parr, in addition to welcoming recent Popblerd recruit Michael Cunningham (AKA “ThePacketMan”)
Picking up from where we left off (Prince's recruit of Larry Graham as an Obi Wan Kenobi-type mentor, we discuss)
-What would have happened if Prince had not followed Larry Graham, but gone with, say, Sly Stone instead?
-Possible future collaborators for Prince, including ?uestlove and D'Angelo.
-What is the best Prince album of all time? (there was no majority vote.)
-Cunningham makes a somewhat uncomfortable comment in reference to "Sister."
-Duquette takes some good-natured roasting from the whole team.
-Is Prince "pop", "soul," or some ridiculously unclassifiable genre?
-The "Prince Drones": the sexy, indistinguishable string of proteges that he is most famous for.
-Did legitimate talents like Sheila E. suffer at the "Prince Drones"' expense?
-Would you have a beer herbal tea with Prince?
-Our Prince recommendations; which include a book or two, some 12" mixes, and lots of D.M.S.R.
We hope you not only enjoy our Prince-cast, but come back for future ones!
