You can stop dancing, working, and everything else anybody is doing.
Prince has died at the age of 57. I’ll skip the facts of his death because there are not many at this time.
Prince had so much to offer through his music. Little Red Corvette and 1999 was the first I ever heard of him. Then came Purple Rain the movie and the soundtrack came along and the rest is history. I fucking love that album to this day.
Its hard to believe that there was a time that no one had heard of him and people even booed his performance when opening for The Rolling Stones. That might have been devastating to a lesser being, but its safe to say he used that moment as fuel for his inner fire.
More recently, he made a comment that didn’t sit well with a lot of people when he publicly complained about other artist doing covers of his songs. The Foo Fighters were the target of his ire when they did a cover of Darling Nikki, but it was only a momentary lapse, Prince made it right. He went on The Super Bowl Half Time Show and did his version of FF’s Best Of You. He could’ve just sent them a note apologizing and moved on. Instead, he made a tribute. A total class act.
I can go on about all the great fucking music Prince created, but we all know (and we all do know) this to be one of the ultimate artists ever. He will be missed.
Long Live Prince!
