RIP The artist known as Prince

I'm beyond at at a loss of words right now that Prince was found dead today at his compound in Minnesota. Such a unique personality with incredible talent on top of it. He will be missed

Quote:
The artist known as Prince has died ... TMZ has learned. He was 57.

Prince's body was discovered at his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota early Thursday morning.

Multiple sources connected to the singer confirmed he had passed.

The singer -- full name Prince Rogers Nelson -- had a medical emergency on April 15th that forced his private jet to make an emergency landing in Illinois. But he appeared at a concert the next day to assure his fans he was okay. His people told TMZ he was battling the flu.

Wow, this is nuts.
Is it that more folks are dying these days, or is it simply that we have more access to information and are hearing about these things more often?

Damn.

Bad quality but at least it's the whole Purple Rain performance.

I grew up with Prince. I bet he's riding his Little Red Corvette right now wearing a Raspberry Beret. We'll all miss you. Thank you for the music! Rest in peace!

Reports that his plane made an emergency landing for a "save shot" from a drug overdose a few days ago. Media said it was "flu" related but he appeared the next night looking fine displaying a new guitar. I hope he didn't OD

Berz out.

R.I.P. to a legend . 2016 has been rough cut so far.

Easily one the best crossover musicians. Pop, funk, rock, soul, R&B, jazz, etc. Top 5 guitarist IMO as well.

Been a sad couple days reeling from this. Bowie was a big one but I had early exposure to Prince on the Batman soundtrack, the first CD I ever bought. I'm more of an R&B person over Rock so this news hit pretty hard.

Prince was truly an artist in his own lane. He bravely straddled the line of gender with his appearance and voice, which no doubt was a big influence for artists and anyone who struggles with fitting into a box. His sound was truly unique and of his own style.

To top it all off it sounds like he was an extremely generous person, having held many concerts to raise money for charity and having started many of his own, but due to his JW religious beliefs he wasn't allowed to tell and didn't want anyone to know about it.

As stated above, it's eerily similar to how MJ went. Seemingly in relative good health and all of a sudden gone mysteriously. Hopefully, unlike MJ, we can truly find out what happened.

RIP.

Pretty powerful interview here with one of his good friends talking about his life's work.

But other than that I have seen every car on display in DTP just by cruising about in Richmond, thank you very much for collecting them together and get someone to sing a cover for "fuck you".
