Joey " What I do know for sure is that the Ike & Tina Revue was a live act that will be in the top 5 live acts of all time. "

No , Please read Ike Turner's Revealing 1988 Autobiography : " Woman's Be Thinking Too Much " . In it you will find compelling Evidence that even Ike Turner felt the only worthwhile reason for attending a " Ike and Tina Turner " concert was Tina's heavenly thighs ( circa '70 ) .

Word !

Sir Stonesalot Nice clip and paste Joey.

You know how I know it's a clip and paste?

>fraught with unadulterated adherence to verisimilitude<

I know you didn't write that. You are a Cornhusker, you don't have the mental capacity to write something like that.

Partner?
I knew you liked anal, but I always presumed you were 'straight'...

Its easy (for guys especially) to dismiss Prince as a "freak" because of what he looks like. But hes an amazing talent and always has been (playing all the instruments on his first record - at 18? Not bad for a 'no talent'). He's also one of the hottest guitarists in popular music and a great live act. Forget the 'freak' shit and listen with both ears. "Sign O' The Times" is one of the greatest albums ever made by anyone, and you'll be hard pressed to find a better album from the 80's.

Its been too bad that all his contractual and legal problems have made him less visible and commercially successful in the last few years, but it was great to see him on that hall of fame show. I always liked him, as he's a true maverick.

I heard a part of his new album when I was in HMV this morning buying the new "Kill Bill" DVD. It sounded terrific from what I heard. A return to form by all accounts.

Around that time it probably would have been Jill Jones and Lisa Melvoin, I think (the two girls in the '1999' video which would have been out around that time)

I dont think the delectable Sheila played in his band until a couple of years later. Bloody good drummer actually!!! Even if most red-blooded guys couldnt have cared less!

My fave "hotty" line up was the Sign o the Times/Lovesexy era when he had Sheila and Cat onstage with him. Drool.

gypsy Great review, SS! That was fun to read...gave me goosebumps. I know you have great taste in music, so I trust your opinion.
I've always loved Prince...I'll check to see if he will be playing OKC this year.

The kid w/ the cowbell makes me think, of course, of that Blue Oyster Cult skit on SNL..."more cowbell."

April 19th, 2004 09:32 PM
Martha I told ya' you'd go nutz for this show!!! Great review!

:-)

Gypsy, that skit was one of the funniest things i have ever seen in my life! It was fucking hysterical. i'm glad someone else liked it too!

Taptrick I like Prince. I especially like his theme and focus for this tour. Hes encouraging parents to bring the kids out and show them what real music with instruments/jams/extended solos is all about. he's made a lot of comments about how the lip-sync acts are hurting the musical education/appreciation of younger generations. That's what he is talking about when he says, "School is in session." He's a great mixture of funk, jazz, dance, rock,improvisation, James Brown, Earth Wind & Fire,and Jimi all rolled into one. If you don't think he can play watch his solo at the recent Rock N Roll Hall of Fame. You want to find one track that might sway you - if you don't like his normal presentation, check out Hallucination Rain from Exodus. Want to hear a truly funny song check out Bob George of The Black Album ("what's he do - manage rock stars? who? Prince? That skinny mutha fucka with the high voice?") Talk about prolific - 21 albums in 20 years. The only thing I truly haven't understood with Prince is the damn drums! He has consistantly selected some of the most canned, tinty, hollow-ass drum tracks. And at times they get very redundant, repetative, repetitious...did I say that already. Oh yeah, great article on Prince in this weeks Entertainment.

Those had to be the ones he was wearing at the induction!
I would KILL for those shoes...

Thanks for the fashion update, SS...I appreciate it

My parents saw the review a few times in the metro St Louis area and loved it. the performance on the Gimme Shelter DVD is proof enough for me.

Gypsy ......................that has GOT to be the funniest post that I have EVER had the distict pleasure of reading . Truly you have reached the upper echelon of Posters here at " Rocks Off " whilst giving the reader a panoramic study of how power plays out in the message board arena. By combining the best techniques of investigative reporting with majestic storytelling ability , you have created a vivid, revelatory institutional history as well as a rich hologram of Stoney's character.

Thank You

It was the same shoes Pam. He wore them at the opening show and I got to see 'em up close....looks like rhinestones not diamonds. They are fab!

gypsy Thanks, Joey...but I can't help but feel your post is a tad bit facetious. That hurts.
Any tornadic activity up there? The weathermen here are just dying for a tornado...they've pretty much instructed everyone to don a bicycle helmet and scurry on down to their storm shelters.

Prince has done some real great albums. I don't like everything and wasn't too shure about him in the beginning. Think he had a kind of image problem.

But for sure he is a gifted musican and one of the great live performers if he's in shape and willing.
I thought he had lost it over those last years but it seems he's gettin it back together.
And that's ok with me. Be open for good music wherever it's comin from . .

Sir Stonesalot Check this shit out and tell me it ain't cool.

The free CD that Prince gave away to each person as they entered the arena...you know what it was??? It was his new album!

The crazy fucker was giving away his new album to everyone who bought a ticket to his show! Tell me that ain't cool! I don't know how smart it is...but it sure as hell is cool.

No , unless of course you count Nebraska Head Football Coach Bill " Was an Oakland Raider " Callahan and the entire rejuvenated Husker Football Program . Look out Stoops and Pelini !

Sir Stonesalot Really Bloozehound? So you have heard "Musicology", I take it? Since you are so quick to judge, you must have heard it...right? Only a complete twit would just dismiss an album without at least giving it a listen....so where did you hear it? I don't think it has been released here in the US yet...did you find a download somewhere? You should share the link with all the other Prince fans here(there's quite a lot of them), I'm sure they'd appreciate it!

Please name me one other artist out there who thinks enough of their fans that they'd just give 'em a copy of the newest album for buying a concert ticket. That is CLASS dude.

Won't do much for sales though, that is for certain. But something tells me that album sales don't really mean that much to the guy. He's already sold bazillions of albums. Nope, I think this is a big thank you to his fans, and a big fuck you to his record company.
