definitely his bombing at the beginning of his career, was it the ritz? or maybe some of the openings for the stones and rick james, the shit would be comical, our man was still trying to put it together and just about everyone bombs sometimes no matter who you are. Only MJ probably never had that problem live.

I'd love to see Prince opening for The Stones or Rick James (or at least hearing them). As has been noted many times ad nauseum, Prince got to live a relatively "normal" life (whatever that is...) out of the spotlight unlike Michael who had to perform for the public since he was a little kid...so, of course, Prince was bound to make some public stumbles...until he discovered what really worked for him live. And, when he did--WOW!

michael had a lot of support right from the git go and by the time he was an adult, he had a permanent fan base, he didn't have to build a thing. Prince had to do so much alone and with nothing more than his passion and work ethic he pulled it off but bombing is normal for any artist no matter how great, elvis had his failures at the beginning as well as the electrifying performances, sam cooke bombed when he tried to play, i think it was the copa, hard to imagine a seasoned performer like him saying "i wasn't ready" but that's exactly why he said he bombed. Mj was a one off and there's no telling how he would have done in london and his fears and the stress from coming back had something to do with him dying.

Yup, artists that don't get "the polish" as kids have to bomb in public as young adults, but Prince no doubt learned from this as his very discussed debut on American Band Stand revealed...when he was literally speechless in front of Dick Clark... razz lol That's when he started getting a public "persona" going on... As I have stated many times, I first heard him on the radio when he came out with "I Wanna Be Your Lover" and thought I was listening to a new Sylvester song! razz lol

he bombed at whatever minneapolis joint he played at for his first album, i forgot the name of it. Owen Husney said he knew he wasn't ready and he wasn't. So, it had to be around 78-79, they say prince played with his back to the crowd, i think dez was already with him too.

The aftershow I was at in Spirit niteclub, Dublin in 2002 it was an amazing night I was a few feet from the small stage. I don't think it was recorded. Does anyone know if it was recorded?

*

We were among the first people into the club and then while the place was still quite empty (had not filled up yet) Prince walked out the wrong door by mistake and walked straight out onto the main floor of the small venue from the side door beside the stage right beside where a good friend of mine was sitting down at a table with a pint of Guiness in his hand - Prince quickly turned on his heel but my friend 'almost' dropped his pint with the shock of seeing Prince suddenly standing right beside him.

God Bless Prince

Atlanta 80 bootleg was as the opening act for Rick James. It sounds like by then Prince already knew what worked for him live.

Paisley Park 2009. Epic 3-hour show.

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

Any and all his P&M epic concerts in 2016. He told his truth on purpose during that series of shows. He was smart and calculating.
