What They Need

“All people care about nowadays is getting paid, so they try to do just what the audience wants them to do. I’d rather give people what they need rather than just what they want.”

 

On April 21st, 2016, the world lost another musical icon; Prince was much more of an artist than even all of his flashy iconography suggests, and though we lost the man, we certainly have not lost the art he left behind. Prince’s career was rich in innovation, collaboration, and passion, and that’s what we’re celebrating tonight on Fighting Rose. With selections from his influences and his collaborations, I want to send my thanks to Prince for touching the world with his music.
