I just heard the sad news from our buddies over at TMZ that Prince died. Here’s what they’ve reported:
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.
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.
This is so messed up. And shocking. And a HUGE loss. Hands down one of the most talented musicians ever. And one of the most underrated guitarist. Growing up in the MTV 80s everyone listened to Prince, Michael Jackson, Boy George, Madonna, etc… but Prince stood apart from the rest. Yeah, he wrote all of his songs, played a bunch of instruments, had sexy girlfriends and female band members, and yeah, he performed live (no lip-syncing here folks). But the thing that really impressed me even at a young age was his guitar playing. He shred the shit out of the guitar. Just listen to the beginning of When The Doves Cry. And that epic guitar solo on Purple Rain. Seriously, go to YouTube and listen/watch his Jedi-like skills. Oh, and his music was sexy as ####!
Shout out to my big sister for getting me into Prince when I was too young to know what good music was and for letting me watch Purple Rain when I wasn’t allowed to. RIP Prince.
