Is Prince REALLY A Tool?

So I read something last week about Prince wanting to make it illegal to cover his songs. Actually, it was in the Phoenix New Times: Cover Songs of Prince To Become Illegal?.

The article kinda calls him out as being a tool as a result. And do I disagree? Not at all. He wrote some killer pop songs in the 80's and early 90's, but come on, this is the usual Prince weird douchebaggery which is the only thing that gets him media coverage since.

Or is it?

Today at lunch, during a slab of terrible music (my only complaint with Macayo's) what should grace my ears? A techno cover, complete with horrible auto tune, of Temple Of The Dog's Hunger Strike. No, really. I kid you not. I cringe at dance re-do's of Guns N' Roses, Motley Crue and Nirvana songs. But hearing this was a whole new level of sickening which made it hard to keep my beef taco down.

Based on that, I have to reconsider the Prince thing. He might be being a douchebag, but isn't there some validity to what he's trying to do? After what I heard today, I would have to say "yes". [smile]
