I got to see him only once, on my birthday in '97. I have to honestly say up until I saw him live in wasn't much of a fan. That all changed when I saw his show live. Easily ranks in the top 10 concerts I've ever seen. I became a devout Prince fan after that. Make no mistake, that man was an entertainer, a showman, a performer, all that and more. An indivualist, who else can do what he did. On the tour that I saw, his keyboardist played this Hammond B-3 and matching Leslie with the cabinets made from plexiglass, all the guts visible to the audience, spectacular! Rest in peace, Prince. My only regret is that it took me so long to turn on to you and your music.
