Prince is an underated guitar hero whilst Cobain was a anti-guitar hero.

Curt Cobain!

Have you actually heard some of Prince's protoges? They obviously were more influenced by Curt Cobain than Prince.

Every time I hear Mayte or Appolonia belting out tunes, I cant help but think of Cobains "Negative Creep"

I think this is a open and shut case. Kurt Cobain had an influence on a single genre of music that really was only around for a couple of years. Musicians across the board have been influenced by Prince.

No comparison. 2 totally different artists from 2 totally different eras. 2 totally different planets.

But I will go out on a limb and say "I Like It There" has a grunge rock feel to it.

They are surely different but they were both around in the same era.

Kurt Cobain will be a legend more for dying young than for his music -- but he was also credited with bringing Grunge to the masses.

I don't see the point of the thread. They're from two different eras. Cobain came into play in the 90s and his influence is more about rock and alternative. Prince's era was all glam and glitter, pop, funk and dance. They're both big influences but to different genres of music.

For the record, Prince's influence has had more crossover appeal. Plenty of rockers, indie and jazz folk cite Prince as an influence. I don't think Madonna, Herbie Hancock or JT will be citing Cobain as a big influence anytime soon.

or

Tho I maintain the firm notion that Cobain was a hack
His version of Lake of Fire was pretty sweet, possibly better than anything Prince could do...
But of course it's a different type of music

For the record, they are not from different eras. Nirvana's "era" was roughly 1989 thru 1994 - which in Prince terms is Batman/GB/D&P/Symbol/HitsBSides/Come. I do understand what you meant though - Prince's "prime" was 1980-1988

They are from completely different genres though - pretty much as different as they can be.
