The hell does he care about if he's already a mega super star?

Do it for the love of music, and people will buy your cd's and ticket shows anyway.

What a queen.

No I got the point. He doesn't want more digital music because people can't "feel it" enough. Cool story bro, looks like you'll never release another album again cause piracy ain't dying anytime soon and neither is digital.

So he's gonna quit releasing albums...what good does that do?

You think all of us are gonna be like oh no! We lost Prince! Better stop piracy and go back to analog!

oh no the world will miss out on the new Prince tripple CD called something like "R8ve un2 the dawn of time 4 U" or something similar, his latest release of his slickest funks n jams, with each track that goes for 25 minutes with solos by each instrument and serious noodling.
Personally as a Prince fan of his 80's work, I am happy for this decision.

Did you ever stop to think that maybe he cares about somebody beyond himself?

Or is that concept alien to you?

Hot damn you guys now how to stay on topic.

Saw him at the forum, and to be honest I don't seriously listen to him, but the show was amazing! He has this song about taking a shot at record labels that I enjoyed.

His opening act was Mary J. Blige. I really dont care too much about her work either, but it was something else live.


Not to mention, it was loud as! @%$ and I'm glad i brought my headphones.

Some use this forum to discuss more or less interesting issues and some to virtually man the f*** up and pose around to make themselves feel better. Yawn.

Here's to hoping he'll release another album due to piracy having shrunk to a less blooming level after some regulation has been introduced which will at least stop the average Tom Dick and Harry thieving, as it has then become too much hassle. Doesn't need to become impossible, which it wouldn't ever anyway, only too much hassle for the crowd to bother anymore. If your provider blocks all the torrent out of view it will be trickier to get to the ripped vinyl, Johnny.....This hopefully after the incoming digital plundering of books/authours upsets enough intellectual people and causes a more widespread stink about other people than the less than highly regarded music business lot losing their income........so with faith and luck in a few years.

Having said all that I'll probably always prefer putting on Sign O the Times over anything new he'll bring out........

Sure. Doesn't mean he'll have to release it though.

Prince:
It's his music, he can release it or not. I like his music, it must be well made or I'd run from the room, but I've never bought (or downloaded) any.

PM privacy:
I'm in two minds over this one. I believe they should be private, but in my opinion the one in question is borderline grounds for banning regardless. There doesn't appear to be anything in the rules about it. I guess I'd just forward it to Jules.

Should be between the private individuals and the moderators.
Certainly threatening PM's (if taken seriously) are a complete no go area.

You're missing the key factor.
Choice!!!
He can give away whatever he likes. If you decide that for him, what is given away free, he's lost his choice in the matter and gets upset (rightly so).

Hmmm, indeed, rapist logic. Just because you like having sex doesn't mean you like being raped.

Just because you choose to drop coins in a street person's hat, doesn't mean you enjoy being mugged.
