Yes.



Because I've been a fan since I was 13, he will allways be #1.

Sure, I love the music of others too. But, Prince his voice and guitar play get to me in a way not other musician can.

99% of my posts are ironic. Maybe this post sides with the other 1%.

No. But I've seen Prince more than any other artist, and some of my best music memories come from Prince-related events.

Don't get me wrong... I will always be a fan, and I love (most of) his music, but there are so many other things..

JIMI is #1.

Tears for Fears is my favorite band.

He was but after the last few years has fallen down the ladder. I would put Springsteen and Bowie above him now.

Yes, he cemented that position a long time ago. Not sure if he'll ever be supplanted.

He is not my favorite but is in top 5. He was my favorite in the 90s but since then has fallen. I have seen him live more than any other artist though.

I'm a fan of Bowie and Springsteen. But we are talking about MUSICIAN here, not stage performer, overall artist, songwritter etc

Come on, I love Bruce but play with D / A / G / Bm and C and you have most of his tunes. lol

To answer the question: he is in my top 6 with Miles Davis, Stan Getz, Wes Montgomery, Sly Stone and Stevie Wonder.

He's equal with Kate Bush in my no.1 position, and last year clarified that as I got insanely excited at Kate's return to the stage.

Same here. So I was in a Kate mood for a while, AOA brought me back in a Prince mood. It changes...

Yes, because after becoming a fan, I explored his influences and was open to discovering other artists and "genres," and listened to the artists I grew up listening to (which included many of his influences) in a new light.

I credit Prince with helping "train" my ear for music . . . such as it is.

Dunno, it kinda feels reductive to even have such a thing as a "favourite" musician, given that my tastes have changed so considerably in the past, I feel they could easily change again and someone else could replace Prince at the top of the pedestal I would have artificial raised him to. I mean, if you asked me at various times in the past who my favourite artist was, I would have said Joni Mitchell, or Hendrix, or The Velvet Underground, or a few others (weirdly I used to be really into Thin Lizzy). I enjoy Prince's music immensely, but I can't predict how my taste will evolve in the future.
