My friend Jonathan Comey from the Standard Times wrote on his Facebook page:

Prince was the greatest solo artist of all time, and I don't think there's a lot of debate about it. --Jonathan Comey, Standard Times

The obvious competition would be Michael Jackson. Was Prince a bigger solo artist than Michael? Christine Fox says yes. She says the fact that Prince could play any instrument on stage, the fact that he could write his own songs, his iconic movie, his incredible stage presence...they all add up to make Prince the biggest of all time.
