My family & friends well know my eclectic taste in music. The fact is that I like most all types of music. For the last 30+ years I have included Prince on my list of very favorite artists. The idea of a nearly 70 year old white guy enjoy the funky rhythm and blues sound of a cutting-edge artist like Prince may be amusing to some but therein lies the magic and attraction of Prince. Prince’s music ignored the binders of gender, age, politics and race.
His artistry and talent will be missed by millions of fans, including me. RIP.
TOWNHALL — CHANHASSEN, Minn. (AP) — Prince, one of the most inventive and influential musicians of modern times with hits including “Little Red Corvette,” ”Let’s Go Crazy” and “When Doves Cry,” was found dead at his home on Thursday in suburban Minneapolis, according to his publicist. He was 57.
His publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, told The Associated Press that the superstar “died at his home this morning at Paisley Park.” The local sheriff said deputies found Prince unresponsive in an elevator late Thursday morning after being summoned to his home, but that first-responders couldn’t revive him.
No details about what may have caused his death have been released. Prince postponed a concert in Atlanta on April 7, saying he had fallen ill with the flu, and he apologized to fans during a makeup concert last week.
