I've got another clue for you all - the walrus was Paul.

Fair enough - I wasn't as clear as I meant to be. I wasn't trying to suggest that Prince was more "important" (choose your own meaning) than Bowie. I was just saying that he hit the musical scene when I was becoming musically aware, and so discovering him had more of an impact on me personally than Bowie's music did.

That's not because Bowie's music wasn't groundbreaking - it's just that it was part of the radio landscape for me ever since I can remember. We just don't think of stuff we've always heard as radical. We can at some point appreciate how transgressive an artist or song was (for example, when I was 17 or so, I heard a slow acoustic version of "Lola" and only then said to myself something along the lines of "holy shit, Ray and/or Dave Davies wrote a hit song about a cross-dresser before Lou Reed and those VU posers did!") but it's not quite the same as when you first hear it.

And it doesn't even have to be when the artist/song is new. I still remember being wowed the first time I heard Dave Brubeck at my part time restaurant job.

Former Deadhead. I now vary between Sinatra with Nelson Riddle v. Sinatra with Billy May and Merle v. Willie.

I'm going first, so more of you will be around to give tribute.

You do know, don't you, that death jokes about folks with cancer are in bad taste?
