    Default RIP Prince

    One of the all-time great musicians, and only 57 His run of albums in the 80s was something special indeed. I'm listening to Purple Rain at the moment.

    Yeah this was not the news I wanted to wake up to. While he could be a controlling jerk most of the time, the man was a steller musician in his prime. Rest in peace Prince.

    Gutted.

    Was only just singing/belting Purple Rain this morning when it came on the radio. I was speechless to read the news.

    I never really got into Prince's music for whatever reason, but I know multiple people who absolutely adored him, and he certainly had a huge influence on the medium, and did a lot of things no one had done before in his prime.

    Has anyone else changed their name into a symbol they made up yet?

    Very troutty news to wake up to. Even if I only listened to some of his stuff, as a musician you have a special place for people who did something unique and influenced so many people in the process. RIP.

    I just started getting into Prince a couple years ago. I was always entertained from him. Wish I could listen to some more music of his, but it's really hard finding his music online.
    I did find this interview where he discussed that Chappelle Show skit.

    I was shocked and very disappointed with the news. A real icon he was. R.I.P.

    Didn't realize he was that old, but that's still too young to go.
