^ I think you overlooked the words "outside rock" in the title.

I don't think Prince was considered a rock act though. He got little if any airplay on the AOR stations that were around in the 1980s. In the US, he's usually called R&B.


I disagree. Ever since Purple Rain, he was a rock star. And maybe even before that: rock critics were raving about him ever since Dirty Mind. But you're right, he's an R & B artist as well. Whenever I'm in a record store, I never know in which section to look for the Prince albums. Some put him in "pop", others in"soul". And that's the beauty of his music: you can't put it in one particular genre! lol

the title does say MAJOR, i think that means big artists playing big venues.
