    The SRV statue in Austin is really big.
    Stevie was about 5’5”.

    Probably won't be much of a threat to Paul Bunyon's in Bainerd.

    Doesn't seem like a great time to be installing statues of people...

    Anyone interested in tearing statues down shouldn’t have a problem with Prince though?
    Principally speaking?:confused:

    Speaking of Prince...At the memorial for Steve Madaio, https://rateyourmusic.com/artist/steve-madaio/credits/
    a story was related about a gig with Prince where Steve was providing a horn section. Steve was instructed to speak to the handlers only, never directly to Prince. Of course the first day Steve says to Prince "So, what do you want?" The handlers start coming unglued telling him not to speak to Prince. So Steve says to Prince, " Excuse me but, you are the Prince, not the King." They got along just fine after that.

    Ah yes my bad. I hadn’t considered the layers to what I said.

    I was pretty ignorant of Prince’s talent until he played the Super Bowl and blew me away. Great artist, good on his hometown for recognizing his contributions to music.
