You hear it all the time and it piss you off (misconceptions about Prince)

What are the things you often hear that is a misconception

and it only takes little research to check

the info but people are too lazy to do it.

This is choice:

Eric Clapton when asked how it feels to be the best guitar player replied :Don't know ,ask Prince.

Prince plays 30(36 ) instruments.

Prince plays horns ,ask Maceo.

Prince was pissed because he was not on Rolling Stone top 100 guitar players so thats why he "decided" to rip on While My Guitar Gently Weeps

These are a couple of examples that make me roll my eyes cause

people keep repeating the same sh.t over and over and over again.

What is your choice regarding the subject?

The fucking ping pong stories. Seriously, with all the people yapping about playing ping pong with prince it's a miracle the dude even got around to recording the odd 200 albums and performing live like 4000 times.

I'm sick of hearing about all the women he was "supposed" to marry. neutral In reality, he married 2 women. One he treated very badly at the end, especially after their baby died and the other left him likely due to drug problems. Hey, I'm not being judgemental, this is just what I believe. I'm sick of hearing how he was going to marry Vanity, Jill, Sheila, etc, etc.

Well, this thread is a disaster because people didn't pay attention to the word "misconception".

No need to org note. This is just speculation, but I've heard rumours. I live in Toronto and know a person that knows Manuela. Whether the rumours are true or not, we will never know unless she speaks about it publicly.

What pissed me off is click bait thread titles. We don't need it here. If the first line of your text was the title, I'd probably have engaged in the conversation.

RIP sad

It happens. Get used to it. When you're a Bob Dylan fan, you just know that there are people who are going to say: but he can't sing!

After 2020, the year of pissed off people, everyone should be too damned tired to get pissed off about anything anymore, including some stupid misconception about Prince!

falloff You ain't lying! My first exposure to his voice was in the song "We Are The World" on the radio before seeing the video. We were all sitting around in class one day talking about the song and identifying which singer was singing which part. When we started talking about his part, none of us had ever heard the voice before and it sounded so crazy that we didn't think it was a serious singer. We had all come to the conclusion that it must have been Weird Al Yankovic until we saw the video.

That's about the worst possible introduction to Dylan a person can have.

Did the instrument count really get up to 30+? It didn't start there.

There are sooo many misconceptions I don't have the time.
Time keeps on slipping into the future...
