Happy Birthday, Mr. Nelson!

Today is Prince's birthday. The radio station I listen to during the day played Prince almost all day and on my way home I listened to all the Prince I had on my iPod. It was fun to honor him in this way.

It's also a great relief. I remember always wondering who the great pop musicians of my generation are. The definition of a great pop musician to me is one who will last through generations; the way that we still listen to The Beatles, or Jackson 5, or The Supremes. I've always wondered if my grandchildren will listen to the same music that I listen to. Britney Spears...maybe not. But Prince...most definitely.
