Two very huge music icons. Would you rather see Prince? Or would you rather Bowie took his spot for a headliner?

People went nuts over Prince, if Bowie is on the '09 lineup it's gonna be even crazier.

I definitely prefer Bowie, so I voted for him, but I don't want to swap this Prince show with anything, it's going to be epic.

Prince is the reason you see "Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics" labels on CD's nowadays. That's epic

It was a collective of artists Tipper and the PRMC were crying about. Beasties, Prince, 2 Live Crew (especially them)...

I did it but only because they asked if I thought Bowie should have taken Prince's spot. I don't think anyone should have taken that spot but I agree

Bowie = Prince

I just voted this morning. I didn't think I could make a choice either. Bowie has more songs than Prince. Both perform well. I've seen Bowie 3Xs and Prince 96 1/2 days ago. Prince just has this presense that's hard to explain. The back up back was so tight and soulful. Musically trained but doing it like it should be done.

We'll see if my current opinion changes, that's if Bowie actually plays Coachella in 2009.

No. No, no, no, a thousand times no. The only thought this poll should require is "I wonder if there's any way I can vote for Bowie faster?"

This is a stupid ass thread because Bowie has more talent in one of his googly eyes than Prince (and his whole extended family) have in their entire bodies. So Die. Screw You. Muh.

too bad prince gets cast as a pop star by the lazy american media, while bowie the more ecelectic and versatile artist. but, in fact, it's prince who's the more versatile and dynamic of the two, and by a very wide margin.

many people aren't even familiar with prince's punk-new wave-funk fusion phase of the early late70s-80s. amazing stuff.

bowie can't make a slow jam or a 9-minute funk workout. but, prince can do everything bowie does.

lock them both in a studio and it's destruction. put them both of stage and it's destruction. i don't see how anyone who's an actual fan of both votes bowie here.

prince is not a pop star. he's just a little black kid from minnesota who grew up to be the world's greatest musician, all while wearing makeup and high heels.

I regret not researching Bowie enough before I saw him with NIN 3 times back in the 90's.

I looked for my vote just now and was quite shocked to see it in Prince's column. Guess I was surprised then too.

How do you need to research bowie, guess my dad taught me right by growing up with Bowie...

I love Price, but Bowie wins by a landslide...

I really don't give a fuck if you saw Prince in 08. I saw him too. That doesn't make him better than Bowie.

Explain why his writing/performing is better than Bowie's.

I've seen both artists live. Have you seen Bowie?

Some of Bowie's best songs were co-written with others. Meanwhile, Prince has written some of the biggest hits for other artists. I find that fascinating.

Yeah, I've seen both live, but I wish I could have seen both in their primes. Too young. Prince's guitar work is so much better than Bowie's that it's kinda unfair to compare the two there.

:nono Low has some of the best guitar work I've ever heard, many written and performed by Bowie himself.

Good for you. He's not a better guitarist than Prince, by any measure.

I loved Prince in 2008, but Bowie is the wet dream of 90% of this board for a reason...

I think deep down inside everyone here knows that prince is more talented. Possibly moreso than any living musician. That's almost beside the point though - he's a funkster not a counter-culture legend. I bet a board with, for instance, black people on it would probably come to a different conclusion. And they wouldn't be wrong.

The only reason I listen to prince at all is that he's that good. Funk isn't generally my style. So my vote goes to Bowie.

All I know is if these two were to Ever collaborate on a song or album it would be like in that scene in Pineapple Express when James Franco is describing to Seth Rogan the Pineapple Express...
"This is like if that Blue Oyster shit met that Afghan Kush I had - and they had a baby. And then, meanwhile, that crazy Northern Light stuff I had and the Super Red Espresso Snowflake met and had a baby. And by some miracle, those two babies met and fucked - this would the shit that they birthed. "



I've seen Prince live already, and it was an AMAZING show. He OWNS not only the Stage, but the audience as well. I Would LOVE to see Bowie now.
