On his first album, 1978’s For You, Prince is credited with playing all 27 instruments. Twenty-seven. He also produced, arranged and composed all of the music, using a co-writer on just one track. The album released two weeks before his 20th birthday. For comparison’s sake, former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl wrote and performed all of the music on the Foo Fighters’ debut album, save one guitar solo. Asked by Howard Stern whether Prince was a better musician than him, Grohl replied, “Hell, Prince was a better drummer than me.” Prince’s drum programmer can attest to his proficiency.
