"I don't know. Ask Prince."
Eric Clapton's response when asked how it felt to be the best guitarist in the world.
At the start of the year, if you had to name another living solo musician as iconic as David Bowie, it would probably have been the man born Prince Rogers Nelson. And now 2016 has claimed the lives of both.
No doubt it's heretical to say this, but my two favourite Prince songs are 'Manic Monday' and 'Nothing Compares 2 U'...
