Although local duo Ginger and Bobby Commodore are scheduled to play the Dakota on Saturday, Prince has rented the club through Monday. "We're taking it a day at a time," proprietor Pickett said. There just local musicians anyways....

Never heard of this guy before moving here 20 years ago and I have never heard anything good about him in that time. He is nothing more than some local cult-like figure with no personality, no redeeming characteristics and shady business practices.

If you saw it, you know how awesome it was. Cult like status? Sounds like someone who hasn't seen him play.

And the Strib totally ignores two sellout nights (fri/sat) at First Ave. with nothing but local musicians/bands. 89.3 The Current's b-day party....about 3,000 attendees over the two nights...much more than Prince, and all local, no hype, just great music...and the strib totally misses it. Out of touch.

I was neutral about Prince until I saw him live at a fund raiser at Paisley Park. From that point on, I've been a huge fan. Seeing him in person is something else.
