I think Prince was a Pink Floyd fan

Happy Thanksgiving.

As I am web browsing along, music on YouTube is playing, you know how it just rolls into something. Anyhow, it was just background music; as my attention was elsewhere. (House hunting actually) Youtube rolls into some trippy, hippy Pink Floyd & my brain says...HEY THAT RIFF sounds like something Prince would do. Then the song Have a Cigar played...I was now listening. I think it's the bluesiness that relates Prince & David Gilmore. And no, I am not suggesting a copy of sounds. I am just noticing some similarities. OK back to Thanksgiving and house hunting.

Well they both had an undeniable run of 4-5 records including a double album that are some of the best music ever recorded

Please do not link Prince with the plodding prog-rock monstrosity that is Pink Floyd; one of the most overrated bands ever.
As a young teenager I had to put up with endless renditions of 'Another Brick in the Wall', or whatever it's called. Pure torture!

How does your brain saying RIFF mean that Prince was a Pink Floyd fan? Utter nonsense with a misleading title.

Look no need to be assholes....Daivid Gilmore is a fantastic guitar player & in the early 80's The Wall was overplayed & I personaly grew tired of it as well. I was just making conversation...no need to bunch up your panties gurls!
