Prince influence on Ween


Recommended Posts

I know Gener's an admitted Prince and Minnesota devotee. That influence is really strong in their music. Even Poopship Destroyer I think has a chunk of Alphabet City in it. I've read way too much about this band. Gener also completely unironically admits a strong Hall and Oates respect especially for the ridiculous amount of soul in their material.

I think with Prince it's partly the balladry, musical virtuosity and immense catalogue that comes across in their music. I was just listening to Prince's Jack U Off and laughed out loud because it could so be a Ween tune.
