Prince, legendary Purple Rain singer, dead at age 57

I wonder why the Illuminati did that? :(

I have the best Prince stories. His antics were legendary in the music industry. He was simply bat-shit crazy and permanently "out of it". He wasn't that talented, yet told everyone he was.

"He wasn't that talented..." //// Compared to what, who?? I just read he wrote "No One Compares to You" which when sung by Sinead was the best song being played at the time. Wrote some others too. Sang, played, wrote, starred.

I sense a bit of guitar envy.

Musical innovation in the music industry. His first singles were incredibly behind the times and out of date and came across as failed entrants to the Eurovision song contest. His major record company promoted him up to being a star and then kicked him out when he started to act like one. Prince was more involved in running nightclubs that continually went bankrupt, than the music industry.

You mean the publishing company that owned Prince's composition catalogue sold her a cheap composition that already failed for Prince, with his own version. ;)

Yes, that's a given. It's why I opened with the question of why they did it, not if they did it.

Because we're in the internets age. No one can die without generating a conspiracy theory somewhere.

wiki----------A prolific songwriter, Prince in the 1980s wrote songs for and produced work by many other acts, often under pseudonyms.--------Prince sold over 100 million records worldwide, making him one of the best-selling artists of all time.[2] He won seven Grammy Awards,[3] a Golden Globe Award,[4] and an Academy Award.[5] He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004, the first year of his eligibility.[6] Rolling Stone ranked Prince at number 27 on its list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.---------In 1981, Prince formed a side project band called The Time. The band released four albums between 1981 and 1990, with Prince writing and performing most of the instrumentation and backing vocals (sometimes credited under the pseudonyms "Jamie Starr" or "The Starr Company"), with lead vocals by Morris Day.-------------In 1989, Prince appeared on Madonna's studio album Like a Prayer, co-writing and singing the duet "Love Song" and playing electric guitar (uncredited) on the songs "Like a Prayer", "Keep It Together", and "Act of Contrition". He also began work on several musical projects, including Rave Unto the Joy Fantastic and early drafts of his Graffiti Bridge film,[68][69] but both were put on hold when he was asked by Batman director Tim Burton to record several songs for the upcoming live-action adaptation. Prince went into the studio and produced an entire nine-track album that Warner Bros. released on June 20, 1989. Batman peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200,[70] selling 4.3 million copies.[71] The single "Batdance" topped the Billboard and R&B charts.-----------In rebellion against Warner Bros., which refused to release his enormous backlog of music at a steady pace,[83][84] in 1993 Prince changed his name to Prince logo.svg, which was explained as a combination of the symbols for male (♂) and female (♀).----------------In 2002, Prince released his first live album, One Nite Alone... Live!, which features performances from the One Nite Alone...Tour. The 3-CD box set also includes a disc of "aftershow" music entitled It Ain't Over!. During this time, Prince sought to engage more effectively with his fan base via the NPG Music Club, pre-concert sound checks, and at yearly "celebrations" at Paisley Park, his music studios. Fans were invited into the studio for tours, interviews, discussions and music-listening sessions. ...----------- Three months later, Spin named him the greatest frontman of all time.[93] That same year, Rolling Stone magazine named Prince as the highest-earning musician in the world, with an annual income of $56.5 million.------------In April 2005, Prince played guitar (along with En Vogue singing backing vocals) on Stevie Wonder's single "So What the Fuss", Wonder's first since 1999.[95] In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Prince recorded two new songs, "S.S.T." and the instrumental "Brand New Orleans", at Paisley Park in the early hours of September 2. Prince again performed all instrumental and vocal parts. --------------------Seven winning tickets were placed inside 3121 CD packages in the US, and other tickets were given away in various contests on the Internet and around the world. On May 6, 2006, 24 prizewinners (with a guest each) attended a star-studded private party and performance at Prince's home.------------On June 27, 2006, Prince appeared at the BET Awards, where he was awarded Best Male R&B Artist. Prince performed a medley of Chaka Khan songs for Khan's BET Lifetime Award. Prince had previously written and performed several songs with the singer.----------------Prince wrote and performed a song for the hit 2006 animated film Happy Feet. The song, "The Song of the Heart", appears on the film's soundtrack, which also features a cover of Prince's earlier hit "Kiss", sung by Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman. In January 2007, "The Song of the Heart" won a Golden Globe for Best Original Song.-------------In October 2008, Prince released a live album entitled Indigo Nights, as well as 21 Nights, an accompanying book of poems, lyrics and photos. The book chronicled his tenure at London's O2 Arena in 2007, while the album is a collection of songs performed live at aftershows in the IndigO2.---------------In 2010, Prince was listed in Time magazine's annual ranking of the "100 Most Influential People in the World".-------------------His singing abilities encompassed a wide range from falsetto to baritone and rapid, seemingly effortless shifts of register.[183] Prince was also renowned as a multi-instrumentalist.[184][185] He was considered a guitar virtuoso and a master of drums, percussion, bass, keyboards, and synthesizer.[186] On his first five albums, he played nearly all the instruments.[187] The precise number of instruments he was capable of playing remains obscure. On his debut album, he was credited with having played 27 instruments,[188] which based on the album credits included various types of bass, keyboard and synthesizer in the total.-------------------In 2001 He donated $12,000,000 anonymously to the Louisville Free Library to keep the historic Western Branch Library, the first full service library for African Americans in the country, from closure

his public attitude or act was that he was above any list .

Yes. The nature of his dispute was the same as George Michaels and XTC. They assign their copyright in the artist recording to a major label and enter into an exclusive deal with that labels. "Prince" was unable to release through other labels and thus changed his name to "symbol".

The label simply sits on the copyright until the exclusivity term of the initial contract ends and then makes a rational calculation to either sell the copyright to the next signing label or "piggyback" on the new label's marketing campaign by releasing older material. They may have done a deal with Prince to get him to promote the old catalogue for two years to recoup his advances and then assigned back the copyright upon recoupment being reached. That's a moderately common scenario.

Prince goes to Julian Lennon's lawyers office, walks into the office unannounced and gatecrashes a meeting. He states that unless he is given a million pounds the next day he will offer partnership in his new nightclub to someone else. He then walks out. The problem was that he gatecrashed another lawyer's meeting who simply worked for the same firm. No one knew why he thought Julian Lennon was even interested, including Julian Lennon.

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/people/prince-drug-dealer-opioids-speaks-out-major-addiction-drugs-a6998006.html
A man who claims he was the drug dealer for recently deceased pop star Prince has spoken out about the “highly addictive” drugs he used to supply the musician with.

The man, who calls himself ‘Dr D’, said he used to supply thousands of dollars’ worth of drugs to Prince until 2008
.

Dr D said he often sold prescription painkillers to Prince, mainly the pill-based Dilaudid and Fentanyl, which is topically absorbed into the body, similar to a nicotine patch. According to Dr D, he often used both at the same time.

“He’d buy large supplies of both drugs. I think the most he ever spent was around $40,000 at one time,” Dr D claimed.

The young guy beside Tom Petty is Dhani Harrison?
People associating freely respect norms of their choice, and relationships governed this way are necessarily interdependent.

More central authorities conquer by dividing, imposing norms channeling the value of synergy toward themselves.

"Every man for himself" is the prescription of a state, not a free community. A state protects the poor from the rich only in fairy tales.
