Thanx to everyone on here who are taking this serious and are helping me with suggestions, I have taken them all on board. Thank you.

Would something like campaigning for a strike work? Like if I got a bunch of co-workers(Prince fans asw well) of mine and we held up picket signs outside the white house to get attention and get this nationwide coverage...would that work?

I am just buzzing with ideas right now. I will let y'all know with updates. Thanx again to everyone trying to help me with this.

It's a shame some posters here are not taking this serious. I honestly am fucking sick of the Justin Bieber's, the Nicki Minaj's and Rebecca Black's that are ruining the music industry right now. A music industry that is infested with nothing but auto-tuning crap on the radio.

It's artist like that make me appreciate Prince, and I think everyone in America, or any part of the world, should embrace his legacy every June 7th.

Whether they are a fan or not, every June 7th should be a day off work and everyone can relax and listen to Prince all day.

please note: outside of the already aged fanbase nobody else know this Prince nor his Music . . .

Hey: it's no a attak or ofence! But please, go and look beyond the rim of your teacup: I'ts not a justin or a rebecca who ruining the music industry - (people like this are present in every generation) - No: of course it's the music industry itself who is ruining the music industry: they do very slow, but definitife, a suicide already since they went in the 80's on the stock market and the new generation of managers thinking in 3-months (profit) periods and make 'projects' instead of create & grow real 'music acts'. . .

and of course this thread can't be taken serious, because the initial question it's complette nonsesne: first of all a Holyday for a Person is impossible aslong this person is alive wink and we have only 356 days in the year.

Many of them are already reserved to much more important people (Jesus, santa clause, easter rabbit etc. etc.) maybe you noted already? all -jesus excluded- are dead since ever. Even John Lennon, Michael Jackson or Elvis Presley don't have a National Birthday and all of them are much more important in History then (y)our Princie . . .

So if every Gaga-Fan will a Holyday for his object of desire . . .

and: who should pay this day(s)? i assume despite your salary should be untouched . . .?

Thank you for your input and the the time you took to post that, there are some very good points.

But personally, I feel what I plan to do is right. I think Prince deserves it ( i don't care if he is a JW), I also think Prince fans deserve it too, a day to celebrate our favorite musician without nobody bothering us and a day to share that music with our families. Prince is the greatest artist ever...with all due respect, he is the only musician that deserves this.

Just another point u made that I want to quickly touch upon, Prince still has a large fanbase and a lot of interest. A lot of his videos on the internet get a million+ views. He still has millions of fans. He still sells out shows worldwide and lets not forget that only as recent as 2006 that Prince had a no.1 album with 3121.

I am not a troll, I have been on this site for 3 years and have never posted a troll thread, so why would I do it now? I am serious!

Prince has given me so much joy in my life and to millions of other people that I think this is the appropiate way to honor him.

SMH at the people who want this thread locked. I have a right to express my opinion.

That much is obvious.

Truly, if you were part of a culture/religion/whatever that believed, for some reason, that it was not appropriate to acknowledge someone with medals - in fact, that you were doing them a direct disservice by doing so - how would you feel if someone insisted on not only awarding you a medal, but having everyone in the world involved in the process, on the basis that THEY believed in medals?

This is clearly about what YOU want, not what you think Prince wants, so you'd best drop the "Prince deserves it" part of your pitch.

If you respect Prince this much, then surely you can respect his wish not to acknowledge his birthday. It's not just about him not celebrating it - it's literally about not acknowledging the concept of counting years.

Anyway, I suspect (hope?) Vict0r is right and that you're really just having a giggle at all of this.

OK I accept he may not wish to celebrate his birthday, we can always change the date to something like when his debut album 'For You' was released. The day Prince's gift was introduced to the world.

And there is nothing wrong or disrespectful for celebrating a day for someone. If that was the case, then they should abolish award shows and special tributes to musicians at ceremonies.

I personally think Prince is just that far ahead of everyone musically that he deserves a day in his honor.

I am taking it seriously, by the way. I think it's seriously ridiculous.

As I said before, there's many other musicians that would deserve a holiday before Prince.

rolleyes Prince is a JW and doesn't even celebrate his own birthday, so why would the rest of the country want to?? Duh.

You nailed it on the head! Perfectly said! lol He does not even recognize his own birthday so why should the rest of us? According to his theory...We were only born ONCE! Which is true! Haha...Why should we celebrate, what only happened once, in the remainer of our life time? Haha

It's Button Therapy, Baby!

BUT ON A LESS SERIOUS NOTE: Why not? That would be fantastic...And while I can not see it happening at all..the mere suggestion that it could is worthy of a smile. smile

I don't see how anyone would be upset by this thread except possibly Prince, who would be upset by probably 90% of the threads in this forum.

Thank you Electricberet. I don't see why a mod should lock this thread when all i am doing is suggesting my opinion.

we are all Prince fans and we all want what's best for him.

Again guys, i have changed my opinion and will try to get a national holiday for every April 7th, the day For You was released.
