Prince Instruments

Does any1 know if Prince played the organ? I've always wondered, because some songs sound as if an organ was used, or maybe its a keyboard with organ effects??

Yes, he sometimes played the organ e.g. during his 1986 live performances

.

If you mean a pipe organ, then no, P never played one.
If you mean a Hammond, than yes of course, he regularly played the B3 – but then again, it can be argued that a Hammond is, in your words, just "a keyboard with organ effects". But of course he also used Hammond-sounds on his digital synths.

Friends don't let friends clap on 1 and 3.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.
