Prince Magazine Covers: Tributes From Around the World

The impact of Prince‘s recent death continues to be felt around the world, as demonstrated by the ever-growing collection of magazine and newspaper tribute covers featuring his likeness.

Prince wasn’t a full-time member of the classic rock community – though Jimi Hendrix-inspired guitar demonstrations onstage and his performance with Tom Petty at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame suggest he could have been if he set his mind to it.

But the love and respect his classic rock peers had for him is readily apparent, most recently acknowledged by Paul McCartney‘s performance of “Let’s Go Crazy” during his recent stop in Prince’s hometown of Minneapolis. Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones described him as “one of the most unique and exciting artists of the last 30 years,” and declared that “his talent was limitless.” Motley Crue‘s Nikki Sixx referred to him as “the true definition of a real artist,” and Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash (it feels good to type that again, by the way) labeled him “one of the greatest musical talents of my lifetime.”

If you’d like to explore the connections between Prince and the classic rock world one more time, check out the story of how he allegedly tried to drive Stevie Nicks’ little red corvette, how badly his night went when he opened up for the Rolling Stones back in 1981 or David Gilmour‘s recent onstage medley of Pink Floyd‘s “Comfortably Numb” and “Purple Rain.”
