319 - Prince

Legbamel Not-Pop

Sometimes I listen to music and associations pop into my head. I was listening to Prince this morning (I don‘t think he counts as pop anymore so I can admit that freely) and I thought, “Wouldn’t it be great if Prince played with Robert Randolph and the Family Band?” Considering the gulf between their usual subject matters (sex and religion, respectively), I don’t know how likely that collaboration would be. I would love, however, to just pass that thought on to one or both of them.

The question? How to start a movement to attract the attention of both and make Prince and Robert Randolph think that maybe, just maybe, they could smoke some mean guitar riffs into the musical stratosphere together. Then they could release an album that really wails and send me a free copy for coming up with the idea in the first place. How hard could that be to accomplish?

No, really, I’m asking. Can I start a Twitter movement? Are either of them even on Twitter and would they notice? If I create a page extolling the virtues of both and asking people to vote for such a collaboration could it go viral? How would I promote such a thing? I think I’ll experiment and see how much I fun I can have with this idea. If anyone has more suggestions (or would like to help), please let me know. It seems a worthy experiment and I’d love to see it bear fruit!

One Response so far.
