B.G.M. Podcast Episode 7: Remembering Prince

Prince is dead.

Prince is dead.

Prince is dead.



Seriously, I just can’t get past that Prince is dead.

Prince Legacy Podcast

At only 57 years old, it was far too soon for an artist that had so much more to offer the world. A true legend and unique spirit, Prince did thing his way and it was hard to argue that it wasn’t always the right way. He died too young, but was there ever really a right time?

Now that we live in a post-Prince world, it was time to put the purple light up in the sky and call together those on the site who care the most to discuss Prince’s legacy and our own fandom.

Included in this pod:

  • Jon and Isaac, the co-Founders and Editors of Bearded Gentlemen Music talk about a grab bag of Prince related memories, but most of all recall the finer points of the album and film Purple Rain. Is it good or is it bad? jk we all know it’s good.
  • Mel jumps on the pod and discusses Prince’s relationship (both musically and personally) with women.
  • Rollie then makes another appearance on the Bearded Gentlemen Music podcast to discuss the first time he saw and heard Prince, and how it changed his life. Also, during this portion we chat a lot about Prince’s image and how closely he managed it.
  • Closing out the podcast, Brandon Perras chats about his personal Prince fandom and how it has led to a closer bond with one of his friends. This portion of the pod includes talk about recreating the “Diamonds and Pearls” video and taking acid.

Also, please subscribe to our podcast and rate it appropriately on iTunes /Google Play /Stitcher and where ever else podcasts are found. What’s “appropriately”? Five stars/two thumbs up/10 out of 10, obviously. Because if you don’t help us, we can’t help you with these hot takes we’re dropping. Help us help you by encouraging us to make the best podcast possible, because we’re insecure like that.

    I really enjoyed this pod! lots of fun topics and really well done. First off the Jon and Issac segment was really fun. those guys with along with the host make for a very fun show. The Mel section was pretty good, but I think the subject of Prince and feminism is a bit of a reach. It’s naïve to say he was a voice for women. Prince liked sleeping with women. To say he was above sexism shows that Mel is only a casual fan but that’s okay, there’s a lot of casual fans jumping on the bandwagon these days. As a woman myself, it’s a bit sad to see a female guest stereotyped into talking just about feminist issues. However,no hate! she is still very educated and poised and I enjoyed her segment on the Bowie episode. The Rollie segment was probably my favorite. I can relate to that story about how the first time hearing his music changed his life. I think Rollie should be on each podcast because of all the guests, he seemed to have done his homework and sounds like a legitimate fan, and not just moved because Prince passed away. Then there’s the Brendan segment lol I LOVE this guy! Talking acid and trying to recreate that video was priceless!! I think he should host this podcast once in a while! so funny! Overall I want to say that I really enjoyed this as well as the 2 other episodes I’ve heard so far [the David Bowie episode and the Kanye West episode] I’m looking forward to checking out the others and yes I subscribed on iTunes! Cheers!

    • Hey Sammy,

      Thanks for listening to the podcasts! Also, thank you for the feedback.

      Just to clarify, Mel chose the feminism topic on her own. We didn’t assign it to her.

      We will try and get Brandon on future pods for sure.

      Thanks again for the feedback and for subscribing. We should have a new episode live soon.
