bowie is just rare to see.....prince is prince.
WTF!? Apperently I voted for Prince earlier which really doesn't make sense seeing as Bowie is obviously better. I blame drungs and/or booze.
Was it Pre-Chella? Because that could've been it right thurr, the Pre-Prince Jitters

Bowie is kicking the shit out of Prince.
Go on, try and visualise it.
We'll see if my current opinion changes, that's if Bowie actually plays Coachella in 2009.
2 oz blended whiskey
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp powdered sugar
1/2 slice lemon
Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
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.
Chicken pot, chicken pot, chicken pot piiiieeeeeeeee!
i forgot that this poll had already enraged me.
but, i am re-enraged. anyone who doesnt know the blatant truth, well....you must live a sad sad life. i pity you.
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.
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.
(That wasn't directed at you WTLF.)
this is a tough one
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.
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.
You know, but that's valid because if we are all gonna die anyway shouldn't we be enjoying ourselves now? You know, I'd like to quit thinking of the present, like right now, as some minor insignificant preamble to something else.
It's that tad bit of Crazy that keeps me Sane...
This is like having to choose between "GOD the all mighty" and "Jesus Christ" No contest....BOWIE=GOD. Prince is great and I love his music, but BOWIE is....BOWIE.
