He's on the what-seems-to-be-infinite list of people and animals I miss.
Such an incredibly talented man. I for one really rated him. For me there was something of the 'other worldliness' of him, because he was unique in so many ways. I loved all his guises, but especially his guitar playing, which I always felt was inspired..
Yes, I miss him alright.. I still can't quite believe he's gone..
Best live show I ever saw. And I was not even a big fan. Phenomenal.
When I was younger I really didn't care much for him to be honest. But that was before I really started to learn about theory in any way. The more I started to learn the more I started to realize how talented he really was and how much I had been missing out on over the years. Now that he is gone there really is a huge hole in the music world in my opinion.
My concert regrets:
1. Prince at the NAC in Ottawa
2. Dire Straits on their last tour
A genius on so many levels.

I got to see him from the nosebleed seats in Oakland.
the Boss is a blues shouter. always was... even though once upon a time he wanted to be Dylan, he's much more Big Joe Turner...
Mark Knopfler still tours, and he plays some of the old Dire Straits songs..
Positive, i.e. you missed the gigs and regretted it or negative, you saw the gigs and regretted it?
Yeah me too - What an incredible talent.......saw him a few times.....always amazing!
Yep, only saw him once and he blew my mind with his guitar skills. His electric pyrotechnics as well as Little Red Corvette sitting alone on the stage with an acoustic, so damn good.
Yes, Knopfler's been at the NAC a couple times. I just wish I went to see the Straits that one last time. Had no idea that would be the last chance. I was sad that they didn't play together at the RRoF induction.
I realized after I wrote it that I should have worded it better. Regret, as in, "I really regret not going to those shows"
He could do it all while dancing, like a combination of T Bone Walker and James Brown.
I miss him so much.
Miles Davis compared him to Duke Ellington...
Ellington...Cab Calloway...Louis Armstrong...Louis Jordan...Cole Porter mixed with Holland-Dozier-Holland and Norman Whitfield.
But to me he was Stevie Wonder and James Brown in the same body with him. Most of what he was was just him. A truly unique individual.
One of the best ever
