I have all the official albums and more. I don't have every song out on the web, nor do I have too. But, I do like hearing new stuff.

99.9% of everything I say is strictly for my own entertainment

What about them? Does it make them any less of a fan? Did you ever think that thru their grief is how they ended up learning about the Org and wanted to join? Do you think that they cried less then you when they lost him? Do you think that they still aren't mourning him? Do you think that they just wanted to share their grief with other Prince fans who understood what they went thru?


I don't know about the rest of the 'bandwagon jumpers' but I've been a fan since 1979. I have all those original albums on vinyl. I don't need to buy the new vinyl that they are putting out, I already have it.


Is there some kind of shame in joining the Org? I don't get it. Who gives a F when someone joined. lol

I cosign Penny's comments.

I also don't understand why the Org join date has any bearing on being a fan.

The imaginative fan. The fans who plays with him on stage, the one who jams and listens to Prince's comments about music, the one who sits at concerts and listens to his comments, the one who plays ping pong and watches a movie in the middle of the night, the one Prince calls for help...the friend.

Amen. Funny that people here said at the time that the members of this group would be here for just a few days until the next news cycle. Lots of us are still here and were Prince fans way befofre joining the org. For me, the day they first play I wanna be your Lover on the radio changed my life.

Yep, you're right. We are still here while most of the others are gone.

And the way I look at it is at least we weren't the ones who was rude to Prince while he was still here and checking and posting on the Org, and when he checked the Org after the Moline incident to see what they were all saying about him.

This is my list of prince fans (in my opinion). Leave some others below!

1. The 80s Fan

This typical listener just likes his 80s stuff and probably doesnt even know stuff like 3121 and musicology.

2. The Obsessed Fan

This fan has all the cd’s, posters all over his/her room, and EVEN HAS TIDAL (wow.) even though they already have all the cd’s and vinyl.

3. Later Music Fan

This fan hardly ever listens to his 80s stuff (unless it’s on the radio) and is always jamming to Art Official Age, or Musicology.

4. The Tour Fan

Watches every concert on YouTube, and probably has been to all of them as well.

5. Fake Fans

Say they always like Prince, but just likes purple rain.

6. Side Project Fan

Likes The Time, Vanity 6 and more, than prince himself!

7. Friend (Me!)

The nice dedicated fan who isn’t too obsessed but isnt a noob either, and probably has his/her fair share of albums in their collection.

Put some more below!

I am number 1 and 6 biggrin

The NonStan Fam: Love Prince and own all the albums and been to several shows but not afraid to say that some moments in his music and career weren't good. Family should keep it honest no matter what...just sayin.

where are we? 12 13 14?

The (org) fan who only posts in P&R or General and never posts in Prince:Music & More unless it fits their agenda... they somehow tend to not know much about Prince or his music.

True. I became a fan in 2009 when I was 13 but I only learned about the org after he died. disbelief

Gandorb, too funny--that describes me to a T. Only it wasn't the day I first heard I wanna be your lover, it was the day my mom told me that was a guy singing!

Penny, thank you so much for your words, too. I did exactly that--my heart was broken and I had no one to talk to. And dreams that were driving me crazy. I was googling about it and stumbled on this place. I didn't become a prince fan after 4/21, I was already that, but I did join the purple world. I never knew there was such a thing--well, I knew but somehow that was something only other people did--and it's been a life-changing experience. yes
And the MUSIC continues...forever...
