Friday, April 22, 2016
KTVU-CHANNEL 2 (OAKLAND) -- The death of music icon Prince has shaken the world. Dee Spencer, professor and chair of San Francisco State University’s School of Music, performs his hit “Kiss” at Beaux, a bar in the Castro. “You can't really define his music as being rock, R&B, pop. What is it? It’s Prince,” Spencer says. “He was just a fearless kind of an artist to take a stand against musicians being exploited and that kind of thing, to help the careers of so many artists.”
