''In Jagger’s view, Prince was a one-off, and we’ll never see an all-rounder quite like him again.''

Couldn't agree more.

Just hope they leverage these kind of comments in the upcoming documentary. That was a strong point in the documentary prepared in the '80s I believe, Prince being a musician's musician

He's often cited as being the musician's musician. Which probably means, if every musician was asked for their favourite they would quote prince more than anyone else.

If you can add value to someone's life then why not. Especially if it colors their days...

There are other iconic stars from the '80s that garner a lot of respect from their musician peers. However, the difference is, with many of those other stars, musicians respect their success and culture impact. In contrast, with prince, musicians respect his actual musicianship -- i.e. his skills at composing, arranging and playing instruments.

That quote from Mick Jagger about Prince outperforming, etc. is old, really old. Considering Prince's career ups and downs since then, I wonder, if he had/has revised his opinion.

Mr Jagger's fave album is the Black Album, maybe P's funkiest album? That or Exodus. Might mean he listens to everything.

Does this answer your question, (quote taken from the same article)

"It’s rare for Jagger to speak about anybody in such superlative terms, but Prince was different. Following his death in 2016, the frontman called him a “revolutionary artist” and said, “his talent was limitless”. In Jagger’s view, Prince was a one-off, and we’ll never see an all-rounder quite like him again."

I am sure there were times between the old comment and the one after Prince died, when he thought WTF!

He probably thought he was as clever as Yoda with all that bible stuff.

Such a bad nick name indeed. wink

is doesn't need to rhyme. rhyme doesn't always matter

if he left the word 'yoda' blank, it would even be stronger within the context

as you have to fill in 'the blank' up to your likes

sorry, hate that Yoda word. wink

but it was his call - who am I...
