Prince is one of my favorite musicians – a great composer, singer and guitarist. Witness the video cover of “My Guitar Gently Weeps” below(solo starts at 3:38).
You’d think he would want to share his catalog with as many fans as possible. Not so much. Amid all the streaming news lately in light of the debut of Apple Music, Prince has decided to pull his music from all the streaming services save one – Jay Z’s Tidal.
Prince has a long history of removing his content from the Internet. Last year he pulled videos from YouTube.
From the Spotify Artist Page:
“Prince’s publisher has asked all streaming services to remove his catalog. We have cooperated with the request, and hope to bring his music back as soon as possible.”
I couldn’t agree more about bringing his music back as soon as possible. One can only hope.
