Do the fans/ community approve of P song covers?

I make song covers of pop artists as a hobby. I plan and create Prince songs on GarageBand, an iPad app, then upload them on Soundcloud and Youtube.

Surprisingly, I receive hundreds, even thousands, of plays for the P songs and the comments are generally positive.

I still get the odd negative comment where someone will say "I don't want covers. I want Prince" or "What the f*** is this?"

I don't know if Prince fans are happy to hear covers or they are protective of the music like Prince himself was?

Some naughty fans believe they're entitled to tell musicians whether they're allowed to cover P's songs or not. So yeah, you're sure to get some shit from those nod

.

While I don't necessarily fancy Prince covers save the occasional gem (and there's been some!), I don't mind people doing them, it's a free world and it's not my place to criticize fellow artists.

Go for it!

Prince was mostly protective of people making money off his name but I think even he could be convinced to allow people to do a cover just for the love of it. He'd probably query why you need to post it online though.
