We've had a thread like this before, but with so many new members coming in, I would really like to know everybody's favourites. (So mods, please don't relocate this to the non-Prince forum.) Anyway, here's mine: James Brown Bob Dylan The Rolling Stones Sly & the Family Stone Kate Bush Wat's yours?

Kate Bush is awesome. I was so gald she spoke so highly of Prince after he died.

I randomly have many more artists filling my playlists but overall these 5 is what I fall back on most of the time when I need to FEEL the music. But they will always be in Prince's shadow...

I always wanted to get into the music from Mali, but other than Dimanche a Bamako by Amadou & Mariam (produced by Manu Chao) I don't know much about it. Can you recommend anything?
