Miles Davis Talks About Prince

Today would’ve been Prince’s 58th birthday but celebrations of his  birthday have been combined with the mourning of his passing on April 21st. Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton made today Prince Day in the artist’s home state. Spike Lee hosted a birthday party with Sway in Brooklyn this past weekend and Tidal has uploaded 15 albums of Prince’s including some unreleased music. BET has announced some of the performers for the Prince tribute which so far includes Sheila E, The Roots, D’Angelo, Janelle Monae and more to come. In the video clip above, Prince’s fellow Gemini, the late Miles Davis, talks about Prince being influenced by Jimi Hendrix, James Brown & Charlie Chaplin. Prince and Davis even shared the stage and you can see it here.
