Prince was renowned as an innovator and was widely known
for his eclectic work, flamboyant stage presence and vocal range.
He is regarded as the pioneer of Minneapolis sound;
his music integrates a wide variety of styles
 including funk, rock, R&B, soul, psychedelia and pop.

Prince was one of Jim's favourite artists.

K&M: How many songs on your iPod?
Please give us the names of

the first three that come up on shuffle.

Jim: It’s tough because there are so many songs for work that come up
- Avril  Shakira, Weezer, etc. Though I love their music,
it isn’t really a fair representation of what I am listening to.
I still love Wilco, Phil Collins and Prince just as much as I always have.
