As some may have saw, Corey opening the tribute show in Minneapolis with “Purple Rain”. Corey closed out the night with his rendition of “Little Red Corvette”.
As a musician myself, Prince had a pretty strong impact on my musical background. I saw how many instruments he played, and every chance I had, I would try to pick up and learn as many instruments as I could. His musicianship was insane with over 2 dozen instruments that he played.
He stood up to major labels to gain more control over his own music that he wrote but didnt own.
He penned hits for Sinead O’Connor, the Bangles and Stevie Nicks, while having the swagger, stage presence and charisma live that certainly got the attention of the ladies.
