13393155, Prince would play sold out shows at the biggest venues....

Eat chop it up with the homies then hit the club for three hour jam sessions.


Me and the Mrs. were talking about the difference between a staged performance and a live concert last night and reflecting on this made me really sad not only that Prince is gone but other than 15 I don't think anyone is even aspiring to be on that level.

The anchor to Prince's legacy was his love of just playing music far surpassed anything else. Dude kept engineers on call like doctors so that he could noodle on that groove in his head at 4 in the morning.

RIP to the GOAT

13393175, No shade to 15 but isn’t he usually spinning records after hours

That’s still nowhere close to what Prince was doing.

Now if 15 is also hitting up clubs to play live drums after shows then yeah.. that’s real love. But a ton of artist have after hour parties which isn’t the same as actually playing another long ass set.

That’s rare as fuck.

13393176, his after shows were better than the regular shows

Everyone else is trying to measure up to his staged performances but ain't touching the after shows.
