So our Prince has gone to see the King

So, our Prince has gone to see the King and wish as we might we will not get new noise (music) from him for the rest of our lives. We all wait with baited breath for the next morsel of genius to be released from its cocoon known by most of us as the Vault but there will be no fresh flowers to bloom from the source. Where do we turn for new creative music? I’ve seen many me too songs published and released by the extended purple family expressing their grief and I have bought every single one to support the expanded tribe but none have moved me or challenged me like some of the noise from the past. I don’t want to consist off a steady diet of nostalgia and beautifully preserved leftovers given new life by the Estate or the others looking to make a quick buck off the passing of the one who introduced me to sounds that this little white boy from the south would not have experienced if our lives hadn’t crossed paths. Whats new to you? What makes you question why all music doesn’t sound like this? Where does this musical path lead when Dorothy has left Emerald City? Lets keep growing together. Where do we start?

Thank you for your poetic thoughts about the Artist and his passing. I have wondered the aame thing--even if new music is released will it be missing the charismatic performance and therefore some of the magic.

Ive seen the Time a few times since his passing. I always loved those guys live. There are other great preformers but none that reach that level for me.

It sounds like you're asking which other artists Prince fans might want to turn their attention toward... in which case you might rethink the forum under which you've chosen to post this topic of discussion...

So is this a play on the gospel song, Soon and very soon? I also thought this would be a creative double entendre in true Prince fashion on the fact he went to see the "King" as in Elvis, especially given that Graceland is managing PP. But no such luck.

Interesting, because in my mind while people are eagerly awaiting the releases from the vaults; I kept thinking, but isn't the music going to sound "dated"? I'm not really sure how to articulate it, but I kept thinking, if music that Prince created from the 80's or 90's is released in 2020, won't it have that 80's feel, tone, vibe? And to me that is the saddest part because it seems like living in the past vs if he were still here you would be looking forward to seeing what path/direction/sound he would veer off in. I get super sad also when I read other's post of how amazing his live performances were, and I watch vidoes, and must accept the fact that I will never have that experience. But on the positive, I've started to just take the opportunity to listen to local musicans and appreciate anytime I actually see/hear someone play a musical instrument and I really am considering taking piano lessons.

if i were to ever write down my life story,
i could truly say with all the fame and glory,
i was just a piece of clay in need of the potter’s hand,
’cause when you whispered in my ear
the words i so now understand

There isnt anything truely as wonderful as live music. As for the vault feeling dated let it take you to that place and time. Its fun do visit the past. Like a time machine.

Not to mention "Soon and Very Soon" (we are going to see the king) was MJ's funeral song.

Seriously though...I think I get what you saying...the only music that keeps me entertained is Prince...or other artists seem pretty bland and mind numbing
