The  preference for musicians  and artists is a personal one. It is rather stupid to claim anyone is overrated or underrated.

You stated it, music is a personal preference, and for me he's overrated...

Prince was mega talented. He wrote many songs for  others and  was a very accomplished multi instumentalist

 

He was  one of the greatest  guitarists who ever lived

 

Watch this:

 

 

 

 

First, Prince was playing an old Beetles cover tune.  Second, while Prince can play guitar, those rifts are rather rudimentary.

 

This is what a truly talented guitarist and musician sounds like:

GTFO... rudimentary !!    It was the  execution of the standard that had them in awe.

 

YJM is a fantastic guitarist and I have known about  him since the very  early 90s.

 

There is more  than  speed to guitar.   David Gilmore is slow and one of the  best

 

but back to  Prince

 

 

he could play as fast as  YJM and  write and  produce and play a ton of other  instruments

Malmsteen is/was exceptionally fast, but more than that, he was quite musical.  Lots of people like to dismiss Malmsteen as being only a technical guitar wizard, yet, his tone and expression is also brilliant.  Malmsteen can be very musical and melodic, classically musical, which I can appreciate.

He played all of his own instruments.

Ummm...   I had no idea things were this serious.    "Airplane" is a historic landmark that changed moves and comedy.  Since you are   checking out the  1970s,  you  need to  watch the "disaster" movies, the  first being  "The  Towering Inferno"  then the  "Poseidon  Adventure" and  then  "Airport"  a  plane  disaster film   that had sequels  and  finally  the  Zucker  Bros  had to spoof them.      Brilliant  film 

Watched Towering Inferno last night. Not too bad. Quite the all star cast.

RIP Purple One, you provided and still provide some of the best music to ever be created by a human.

 

4:20 - 6:35.....Guitar greatness

 

Tell me how to spell "red" in the next five minutes, and I will give you a thousand dollar.

 

Clock's ticking.

Glenn Danzig recently did an interview and he says that a lot of the music that came out of the 80's would not existed if "woke" culture existed then. The alternative, punk, metal, and even hip hop would be deemed racist, bigoted, whatever-ed.

yeah , the all star cast  thing was all  rage  then  for disaster movies 

 

The backstory of the  Inferno was that they could not decide  who would get  "top billing" ..    Steve McQueen or Paul Newman

Who would you have given top billing to? I was born in 1977 and so Newman/McQueen were a bit before my time

Those two   both were about equal  at the time.   Holden was the   huge screen legend, though a generation older than the  young top stars.

 

Back then, they didn't  have old stars come back,  they  never thought  their time had passed
