PRINCE and 3rdEyeGirl have just been ranked #2 BEST LIVE BAND to see right now by Rolling Stone magazine!

Rolling Stone:

He's never sounded better, his band 3rd Eye Girl is fire-hot and he's plundering his back catalog with a vengeance;

For the full article including soundboard clips, click here....

"He's a better guitarist than you are," says Cliff Burnstein of Q Prime Managment. "He's a better singer than you are. He can dance better than you. His songs are better than yours. You might have a better jump shot, though."

Showstopper: "Purple Rain," especially when Prince launches into the epic guitar solo. Or another one. Prince can make the building collapse with any song if he feels like it.

For those wondering, Bruce Springsteen was voted number 1 and The Rolling Stones number 3.

For a sample of PRINCE & 3rdEyeGirl's brilliance, check out the LIVE & Exclusive soundcloud links below. The classic "She's Always In My Hair" and a cover of "Even Flow" by Pearl Jam!

Much Love 2 Rolling Stone.-DocFB

Diagnosis: We want to see Cliff Burnstein's jump shot!

  1. Bon Jovi is No. 1

  2. Rolling Stones. The magazine that ranks Elvis at 3, Bob Dylan at 7 and Prince at 30 when it comes to vocal performance….

  3. How is it that Prince and 3 girls are #2? They are #1. This is without NPG TOO!!! Really? they need a Grammy!

  4. the quote next to Prince’s photo in this issue of Rolling Stone is by Lars Ulrich, drummer from Metallica and begins with “Prince doesn’t give a f-u-c-k…..”


  5. Kool

  6. Cool

  7. Very cool news. Happy for Prince & 3rdEyeGirl. Both cuts you posted are monster jamz.

  8. I don’t read publications that aid the enemy by putting photographs of a terrorist on the cover.

  9. Congrats Mr Prince and 3rdEG, I’m so honered and blessed to see them in Stockholm :)
    Thanx Doc for the report.

  10. Also for me Prince and 3rdEyeGirl are number 1, no doubt about that! Prince rocking with these very talented ladies is the best he has ever done live (for me anyway) and I hope we’ll see lots more of them!!

    For me it is pure joy to see him play with such joy, rock so hard, reload some of his best songs to make them real heavy and give them a new brilliant sound! I absolutely love that fresh new style & approach and applaud Prince for doing something different!!

  11. very cool

  12. then again isnt Rolling Stone that magazine who puts bombers on their coverpage? Doesnt sound like they have a good sense of what is good and what is not :)………prince will always be no 1 oin my book

  13. Admirable silver medal…but there is only one person that really deserves it and thats Prince cuz with all due respect without him 3eye girl wouldnt even be mentionned….so well done Prince cuz all that glitters aint gold ;D

  14. That’s pretty awesome recognition considering the band as a whole has been together since last Christmas. I thought the concert I saw was awesome. Though it can be improved by dropping the sampler set, which doesn’t fit well for this type of show.

  15. I feel like SNL or Kanye, really Rolling Stone ? #2 ? Yo Bruce, I’m really happy for you & Imma letchoo finish Thats cool and everything but Prince is the best of all time! ha ha

  16. Prince has reinvented himself with 3EG! He also has revamped his image, look, & recharged his body with an electric socket called “3RDEYEGIRL”! This new band has a youthfulness that Prince has been looking 4.

    Like Jesse said. They should have been #1! Since its just the 4 of them ROCKIN IT!. Ida,Hannah,Donna & PRINCAH!!!

  17. A Gr8 Prophesy 1nce Spoken, “Underground. Soon 2 Be Above.” A Gr8 Prophesy Now Spoken, “No. 2. Soon 2 B No. 1.”

  18. Both the Boss & Prince are great talents. I saw both of them in the past year. The difference is I caught the Boss locally and followed Prince out west 2 weekends in a row. My heart stays with the Purple one.

  19. Both the Boss & Prince are great talents. I saw both of them in the past year. The difference is I caught the Boss locally and followed Prince out west 2 weekends in a row. My heart stays with the Purple one.
