Prince died this week on Robert Smith's birthday -- April 21st.
It's difficult to tell whether Robert Smith of The Cure was a fan of Prince. After lots of searches I have been unable to find an interview where he mentions him. But one thing is for sure, Robert Smith thinks his Starfish and Coffee was one of the best songs of the 1980s and he listed it as such in a poll he did. The song can be found on Prince's Sign 'O' the Times album.
Above is a one minute take. Enjoy!
