Do u know anyone who's more talented than Prince?

There are over 6 billion people living on this funny planet. I've been through the entire music library and haven't found anybody more talented than Prince.

Do u know anyone (who is not living underneath a tombstone)?

No way.

I doubt there's anyone alive who can sing, dance, produce, write music, play 20+ instruments and put on a spectacular stage show.

You can ask me this question a million times in a million different ways, but I'll always vote in favor of his Greatness.

More talented in general? Not in my books. I like a lot of different music artists but they are usually better in a specific way. Some are better guitar players, some better vocalists, some write songs in a more mature manner, etc...But when it comes to general talent as a whole Prince is definitely the one. In fact I've gone to a lot of concerts of other artists where I feel so bored I just want to go home and listen to their cds and could care less whether I see them in person. But when the light go out at the beginning of a Prince concert there's on other place I want to be. So my answer has got to be NO.

Talented in what way? I know someone who builds beautiful Arts and Crafts furniture, for example. (I doubt Prince can.) I know someone who could sew a wardrobe for him. (Could he do that himself?) I know someone who could make a fabulous five-flavor chocolate ice cream for him. I know someone who could write a press release with or without using riddles or cryptic references. (I'm not sure Prince could drop those if he tried.)

More talented? What does that even mean?

Joni Mitchell is a better lyricist and composer, overall, imo. Though, Prince is the better stage act.

Did Prince ever compose a few dozen symphonies before he died at 36?

Actually, I kinda think of Prince as a modern Mozart. Someone who's dedicated his life to music, with the exception of 2 things:

a) Prince isn't a child prodigy (at least not the same respect as Mozart)
b) Prince is at least grounded enough to know there's more to life than recording

that was one of my original thoughts, but I don't compare the 2 anymore.

Up until about 10 years ago, I'm not sure that was true. There's numerous reports to the contrary and even he and Mayte made reference to his compulsion to spend inordinately large amounts of time in the studio (and her attempts to get him out more, IIRC).

There's at least one major similarity. Mozart fought his "record company," too.

Yeah, I guess I should have added that in with my response. I'm perfectly aware of that.
And actually I was a bit worried that he'd be the kind of person who'd "die for his art"... that was when I first became a fan. Now, I know better thanx to discovering that Mayte put him thru "recording rehab".
