Just heard that Prince died at 57. Very sad news.
Way before his time.
First Bowie, now this.
What a year.
Sometimes it snows in April
Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad
Sometimes I wish life was never ending
And all good things, they say, never last
Saw him a few years back at MSG – easily top 5 shows ever for me, despite being seated in the last row of a giant arena.
What a legend.
He was on tour last week. Briefly hospitalised with the flu, played a show in Atlanta and returned home feeling worse. A mobile crime lab has entered Paisley Park, but that could just be standard procedure. Rumours of HIV status and Jehova’s Witness medical strictures abound.
Composer, multi-instrumentalist, producer and performer:
One of the bands you can hear in Heaven:
True Genius. Minnesota Legend. Musical Pioneer. You are missed. May your soul rest in Peace.
