    Can't stand him. Extremely arrogant and basically does nothing more than overly produced pop. Haven't really heard much about him in 20 years.

    Prince is an absolute genius he may not be your cup of tea musically but you can't deny his song writing,producing and musicianship.

    That whole double cd is brilliant. Fantastic arranging.

    If possible, check out something like Live At The Alladdin Theatre in Las Vegas...the solo sections (mostly keys & sax), within his Pop tunes, veer off into jazz-ville.
    Nothing wrong with being arrogant...if you can back it up.
