This same torch passed down from James Brown to MJ and Prince, is the same torch MJ handed back to Prince, who upon exit, blew out in a single exhale. No more, folks.


Lunacy. MJ didn't hand shit. Prince never needed Motown, that's not his origins.

Ok this is a Joke right??? No one thinks MJ Handed a damn thing to Prince ....I Love MJ but man he and Prince are the children of James Brown etc...

Why are we even talking about Bruno Mars?? biggrin

I wouldn't quite go so far as to call Bruno Mars talentless because he clearly isn't, but he sure knows how to self-promote and imitate others.

The Prince-shaped hole will never be filled by one person, and Mars will never make my playlists.

My kids like him though, that "tribute" to Message In A Bottle for example, but then they are only 8 and 10 and lack any proper frame of reference.

Prince dug alot of Artist ...hell he even had Rita Ora on his records ...that note does not mean s**t sorry!

Prince is a teacher he will try to get the best out of all artist - get them to work harder at the ART

D's tribute to Prince on SNL proves he's the only artist to get to a basic level standard - so you can see how hard it is to get to the next level !

Sorry but the WeeKnd and Bruno can't even get to that standard sad

We morn Prince passing because the Gap between him and the rest is very large - Stevie Wonder and his like - and that type of Art - god damn hard to find these days

I don't dislike Bruno or anything, I just don't see him as the "next" Prince. Prince apparently liked George Lopez as well, does that mean George should take up the Little Richard doo and a Cloud guitar and hit the stage?

Will only be one Prince , will only be one David Bowie , will only be one Michael Jackson, will only be one James Brown. Bruno Mars is Bruno Mars. The end.

LOL. Bruno is a great vocalist/performer, but nevertheless, a cheeseball. His songs are mainstream tacky.

Need more substance...

eek fryingpan If there is any good in the Universe, PLEASE NO! Every 1 knows there will never be another even CLOSE to P. The best any artist can do is B themselves and give their music as a gift to the world.

I mean come on, what would be his Paisley Park? The Mars' Bar? bored wacky

Wtf!! Bowie, MJ, Bruno. These guys were good, but ive seen GREATNESS, so im not impressed.
Thanks for the laughs, arguments and overall enjoyment for the last umpteen years. It's time for me to retire from Prince.org and engage in the real world...lol. Above all, I appreciated the talent Prince. You were one of a kind.

You're not the first I hear saying that. What's with the macabre and the definitive?

I sure hope a gifted musician comes our way in the future. If Prince's death can remind all these wankers that talent is of no use without hard work and perseverance, maybe some of them will get down to it, and look past GarageBand.

That said, if the listener himself has no problem digesting GarageBand patterns and the usual "The Voice" trained monkey, as this is more and more the case, we're looking at a very thin slice of the population who actually cares for music as an art.

And let's not forget the essential: the talent scouts and the record company executives are now wankers too. We have now a full chain, from production to distribution, of inept yo-yos that would rather make another dollar, than a concept album (a concept what?) or anything that goes out of the comfort zone.

Very nice note, BTW smile
But, like somebody said, Prince liked several new artists. It doesnt mean he was ´passing the torch´ to Bruno, only encouraging him to be the best he could

Peace

There are no torches to pass. There is, was, and always will be only one Prince. Everything that has been innovative in the world of music has already been done so we are left with a bunch of carbon copies...some better than others but none even close to the originals. Honestly, I'd rather Bruno over Miguel or The Weeknd if people insist on trying to find a Prince substitute sad. Personally, I think Ed Sheeran is better than Bruno Mars. Just my twocents

Well, it may well be:


1. He hasn't signed it.

2. It would normally have 'B' not 'be'.

3. He writes 'Urself', not 'yourself'.

If Bruno would take the torch, that would mean fulfilling what Prince told him--to be himself, find his own musical footing to fulfill his undoubted talent, and make his own sound and legacy of music built upon the influences who came before...as Prince did. That would be taking the torch.
