re: R&B Thread

I'm just now seeing this full interview with Chris Rock and Prince. I had heard the Michael Jackson/Bad comments before but it's cool to get some insight on music & his career from The Artist himself.

re: R&B Thread

Prince was a bit weird during the 90's. That was when he was going through the whole artist formally known as phase.

Listened to the R&B Soul channel and heard some songs I haven't heard in years.







Freddie was that dude.

It's such an uplifting song.

Probably because I'm a big Chris Tucker fan, but yeah.
Yeah, pretty much the only songs from his album I've heard 10 years ago (IIRC?).

Prince has always been different since he first debut really from the way he dressed, performed onstage, and then in the 90s with the name change. In that interview he does mention how he was a bit into his own ego at times so I appreciated his honesty there. No matter how weird or different Prince was I got the feeling he was comfortable in his individuality which is something I feel Michael couldn't/wouldn't accept in himself.

I don't like to always compare Michael and Prince because they really are so different from one another. Michael was more of a pop icon entertainer and Prince was more of a multi-talented artist. The music they made and how they presented themselves was completely different from each other and the biggest similarities between them are they were the two biggest black music stars in the 80s, they are the same age along with Madonna and they all were HUGE in the 80s. I love their music and will always listen to their classics over the years and watch their concerts.

re: R&B Thread

Spot on Clique. Prince was always comfortable with who he was no matter how far off the radar people thought he was at times. Michael was never comfortable with who he was and it was so obvious through the interviews and surgeries. All that money and you're not happy. Tragic.

re: R&B Thread

The music industry is filled with a lot of individuals with off the wall (no pun) personalities and quite a few with various personal issues; many of them I am a fan. Someone once told me if I looked at my music/cd collection I would find a collection of "so-called idols" who are/were just as flawed if not more than any other human being although they are incredibly talented and rich. It is a sad thing to known the demons so many of these R&B, pop, soul, and blues artists went through.

On to something a bit happier...

Yes he was. I have some Freddie on one my R&B playlists right now next to some Luther, Anita, & Marvin.

This was a hit:

re: R&B Thread

You know what's funny? My father played Freddie Jackson in the house when I was a kid, yet when Smokey said that line in Friday about the chick looking like Freddie Jackson I had no idea who he was. Simply laughed because it was Smokey.

Man the 80's had so many quality artists. Luther, Freddie, Barry, James Ingram, The Debarges, Alexander O Neal, Michael, Prince, Anita Baker, Sade, etc. The list goes on.

re: R&B Thread

I get my life off 80s & 90s music! The 70s is my stuff too like James Brown, Parliament Funk, Ohio Players, Stevie Wonder, J5, EWF, Isleys, Stylistics, O'Jays, Marvin, and so many others.
