Has it really been 10 years? On November 20th, 2003, it was announced that PRINCE would be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame 2004 as a first ballot nominee and one of the youngest to be inducted into the Hall Of Fame ever.
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Ceremony took place on March 15th, 2004 with Alicia Keys and Big Boi of Outkast inducting PRINCE into the hall after a memorizing performance that included "Let's Go Crazy", "Sign O' The Times" and "Kiss" and closed the show with one of the most mind-blowing guitar solos of all time on "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" with an all-star band.
Prince was the first artist to have a number one album "Purple Rain", number one single "When Doves Cry", and number one film "Purple Rain" all at the same with.
Prince also still holds the Billboard Magazine Hot 100 record for most top 10 hits for years in a row (11 years) from 1983 until 1994.
The songs? 83' "Little Red Corvette", "Delirious", 84' "When Doves Cry", "Let's go Crazy", "Purple Rain", 85' "Raspberry Beret", "Pop Life", 86' "Kiss" 87' "Sign O' The Times, "I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man", 88' "Alphabet St.", 89' "Batdance", 90' "Thieves In The Temple", 91' "Cream" 92' "Diamonds & Pearls" 93' "7" 94' "The Most Beautiful Girl In The World".
Pretty impressive song list for sure.-DocFB
Diagnosis: 2004 was a crazy cool year for Prince. Will we see the same in 2014?
PRINCE has released a new demo entitled "Da Bourgeoisie" and like last month's "The Sweeter She Is" live rehearsal track, it was given to a Twitter follower to get out!
Around 1:41 A.M., 3RDEYEGIRL (Prince's official Twitter account) asked "Who wants to deliver this stolen Prince demo to the needy?" Hmm. To instead of 2. No caps lock issue. People were responding to the tweet with a frenzy....until one was chosen.

Jshua was asked for his email address and sent the demo. Cool deal.
The photo of the moment is of PRiNCe caught by Madison Dubé. This brilliant black and white shot is up close and way intense.
This shot was posted to Madison's Instagram page.
Madison had this to say along with the picture:
"We can't wait to show you the rest of the magic. #Prince"
We LOVE the shot! Classic!
If you haven't caught the latest PRiNCE Spreecast, check it out above! Thanks to Jester for capturing the screencap for us!
Diagnosis: A really, really great shot! Impressive Madison Dubé!
Andy Allo performed at Hotel Cafe on Monday, the last night of her residency to a packed house. Seconds after she took the stage, Prince glided in to catch the show.
Andy Allo kicked off her 45+ minute set with a new song that was quite beautiful but no title was given. Next was a funky version of "Yellow Gold" from her album "Superconductor" followed by a rock-sounding "Wait In Vain" by Bob Marley. Allo followed that up with another song from Superconductor, the beautifully-tinged "Nothing More" which I was extremely happy to hear live.
PRINCE has released a rehearsal version of "Something In The Water (Does Not Compute)" from the "1999" album. Will Livestream's return that will feature rehearsal's like that?
The Artwork is by Stella Blu. OK Player, that is BLU. Thx.
Above is a wimpy mp3 version of "Something In The Water (Does Not Compute)" but you can buy a powerful wav version of the song HERE. It is only .88 cents for 7 minutes of funk!
Also, a new title for the 3RDEYEGIRL livestream has been created, aptly titled "NOVEMBER NOUVEAX" and was created yesterday. So far, no activity, although it might be worth keeping an eye on. Perhaps they changed it since the last title had "October" in it.
What is for certain is there will be a PRINCE Spreecast tomorrow, November 5th! So tune in for that!-DocFB
Diagnosis: That 7 minutes of "Something In The Water (Does Not Compute)" is amazing. Make sure to download it HERE.

3RDEYEGIRL & PRINCE have posted a video download of "I Like It There" from this past weekend's "The Breakfast Experience" for $1.77.
The video can be purchased at 3RDEYETUNES.com
It appears 3RDEYEGIRL tweeted about this a little over an hour ago and then quickly deleted the tweet? Will the video be deleted soon as well?
Might want to go to 3RDEYETUNES.COM and download it just in case!
This version of "I Like It There" is complete and 5:28 seconds in length!
Worth it for the close up of Donna Grantis's Wonder Woman jammies!
Diagnosis: Do you....do you....really like it there?
Who won the weekend? Was it Kanye opening up his tour this weekend? Was it Drake? Nope! According to AXS Live, PRINCE and 3RDEYEGIRL won the weekend with the Pajama Dance Party aka "The Breakfast Experience" at Paisley Park!
AXS Live played the "Let's Go Crazy Reloaded" video clip with the story and was nice to see on my TV to be honest.
They made sure to mention that pancakes were served and Ryan was impressed that Dave Chappelle wasn't lying about getting pancakes if you go to PRINCE's house!-DocFB
Diagnosis: AXS LIVE, Ryan Stout, and Marc Cuban, care to come to the Park and play? U know who to contact.....
