Sam Jennings interview about Prince

https://glitch.com/cultur...sb2yVKElM4

i liked this part. I figured Prince would have been a Fleetwood Mac fan. And I always thought Shades of Umber had Chicago influences.

One story that really stands out is when he was staying at the 3121 house in Los Angeles ... he'd set up one of the guest houses as a music studio, and that's where I had my computer. And one afternoon we were sitting there, and we were working on stuff, and I would kind of make playlists to play while he was in there, stuff I thought he would like to hear. And he says to me, "Hey, what if you download some music that we listen to?" We were talking about '70s music, and we were talking about Steely Dan and Fleetwood Mac, and artists you wouldn't normally expect him to cite as influences.

And so we downloaded the first Steely Dan record, Fleetwood Mac, Rumors. We downloaded Chicago, one of their first records. And we just listened to them all the way through, and just listening to them with him, and having him talk about the music, and, "Oh, listen to this part," and he'd get excited about a guitar solo or something like that, and just really kind of break it down and talk about his experiences as a high school kid listening to this stuff. It was just really, really great. It was just a very kind of casual, easy moment. We're still working. We're still doing our thing, but just to have that going on simultaneously, that was a moment that really stood out.

I love hearing that Prince and I grew up on the same music. It always made me feel close to him.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

Occasionally he seemed like an ordinary guy.
But most times our extra, extraordinary Prince! 💜
