FIND A STATION Dan Patrick Show
MONDAY: Chris Collinsworth

Darius Rucker talked about how big an impact the late Prince had on him.

“You can’t even come close to what Prince did,” Rucker said. “He’s one of the best guitar players in the world. The talent that man had was over the top.

Dan asked Rucker if Prince came out today, would he be as popular?

“His style transcended time,” Rucker said. “[What he was doing] would fit right in with what’s going on today.”

Rucker said that Prince was a big part of what he became as an artist: “He made me want to be in a band. As a young African-American man when that album Controversy came out … that was huge for me.”
