I doubt he will either, but he will listen 2 other musicians before he listens 2 his fans.

I just can't believe all the things people say !

How weird: Why is Nicole Sherzinger wearing a Prince shirt! They are fucked up in la la la land, the only one who is normal is Prince.

Why is DocBerry copying stuff that Questlove tweeted and making a story about somethign that the whole world already knows about?

Let him be, he doesn't want his stuff on youtube, but all know that, right?

Lately I'm a little bit in love with ?estlove.

So, I agree with him....

Even when I was not a tiny bit infectuated with him since recent Roots performance, I do think Prince cuts himself of a big and young audiance by boycotting the youknowtunnel.

On the other hand I respect Prince his fights with the big moneymakers, so unknown artists and musicians can profit due to Prince's figths.

What would be more effective would be a documentary about musicbussiness. Showing how it works in an simple, however convincing manner. Just like Food.inc, Supersize me, bowling for Columbine...

That could pass Prince his message better than isolating himself and his music from the world.

99% of my posts are ironic. Maybe this post sides with the other 1%.

Yes, but I have the impression that lots of other stars of Prince's calibre have their videos taken down, so it is not only Prince doing this.

On the other hand if you look at how much sound material Prince has, those youwknowtunnel's would be exploding with the quantitiy of his music.

Record companies are taking music down, so why would not Prince be entitled to do this? Cause he is free and not with a conglomerate label? I respect his decisions.

And quite frankly, QL is talking a little nonsense, and I doubt this was entitled to be a story on Docberry site, probably the reason why he got blocked to begin with.

Anybody care to ask QL? lol

I didn't say I oppose Prince his stance. It's his choice, he should be able to decide about his own music. It's just that I think there are different ways to have his story/opinion told, eg to show how the music bizz works in a documentary.

Interesting, but this sounds hypocritical on Quest's part. Even though P shortchanges his fans, you can't help but respect his motives against big moneymakers in the record business. Quest, along with others, are beating a dead horse. I don't believe that his legacy will be hugely affected by some remasters or him taking down videos on YouTube.

Honestly a lot of the time, remasters = poorer sound quality than the original due to compression ect. Just saying.

Half of the stories on TMZ are from people's twitter account. That's how news gets out now.

Anything you put out like that, people are going to catch on to.

I'm sure Questlove is fine with it. Last night, people were tweeting drfunkenberry to post it and get the word out. It was even retposted by Questlove on Instagram to get the word out. So funkenberry gets the word out. So much stuff that drfunkenberry puts out is even on Quest's OK Player web site. So your assumption on why he got blocked is more than likely wrong.

So it makes sense for Prince to not make any money off of his music, just so he can keep anyone else from making money off of his music (even if they fund its release and distribute it) out of spite?

Pretty much. Prince ain't going broke anytime soon. He's not the only one doing it either.

Did something change? Did he start paying his bills?

Your point is? His luck and fortune is way better than many. Let's just stop making this into a big thing than what it needs to be. Sure I sympathize with the fact that he should treat us better as his hardcore fanbase, but he's not gonna change anytime soon. It's a game of give and take when it comes to him.

Umm okay this makes sense now, but what is QL trying to achieve? Is he trying to change Prince's mind? Or is he saying what we been debating here for the past 10 years? I'm kinda bored with people's self promotion on behalf of Prince.

Unless there is a Prince sighinting I am not gonna listen to ANYBODY lol

I don't get it: isn't Dr. FB just a shill for Prince? Could this just be a way to generate some buzz before some kind of big announcement regarding remasters/YouTubeis made? Yes, I'm a hopeless optimist...
