It's worth noting that just about* every guitarist, and indeed musician, that expressed an opinion on Prince's passing highlighted his incredible skill as an instrumentalist. This included the likes of Kirk Windstein and frankly I think that someone who does it for a living (and has "RIFF LORD" tattooed on his knuckles) is probably a better arbiter of what makes "proper" music than a journalist who has apparently only heard Stairway to Heaven.MisterMuncher wrote:The contempt for Prince's instrumental abilities shines through, green and sour. Yes, he didn't do big fucking riffs, but it wasn't because he couldn't. The dividing line between the good and the great guitar player is the ability to play shit-hot rhythm guitar for the song, not hide behind a repeating figure until you get to the solo. That's why Hendrix, Prince, Steve Cropper, Chet Atkins, Willie Nelson et al are geniuses. I love Zep and a big crunchy riff as much as the next man, but Jimmy Page's finest work was the subtle stuff.
In short, Delingpole would prefer Noel to Rory Gallagher, because he's a simple-minded cunt.
