Can this not turn into a Young VS Old Prince fans thread ?

It's about being a Prince fan and realizing that none of these "new" artists these days come close therefore should never cover his stuff.

It has nothing to do with age or "old-timers"...i actually like Phoebe Bridges, Taylor Swift and Miguel...but not enough for them to be entrusted with Prince Nelson's music...as far as music "dying in the 90s", thats a silly statement...i listen to, and love, plenty of current music...i just dont listen to alot of the cornball current mainstream music some of you nerds, geeks, and doofuses listen to...

I totally agree--don't trust any of them to do justice to Prince's music. You actually like Taylor Swift, which I don't. Lol I want to hear Prince's unreleased songs in Prince's voice--not someone else's.

It´s not a bad idea, but I think about two things:

.

1) I am not sure if there are too many potential hits in the Vault. If there were, Prince probably would have used them.

.

2) Why not work on his already released songs? I know Prince didn´t like people covering his music, but if, for example, Taylor Swift recorded ´Purple Rain´, it would bring her fans into Prince´s music.

Probs because these are the hardest of the hardcore and they can't tolerate much in the way of interpretation.

Does anyone really think the Estate are trawling these comments sections to see if anyone is asking for bootleg links?

I had deleted the comment, because i didnt to offend anyone or start any shit...but yes, Lil Nas X doing a cover of 'Jack U Off' would have the music industry and the media, going crazy
