Our local media is reporting that Prince has died. There was a death at Paisley Park this am but TMZ is saying it's Prince.

Looks like his publicist confirms it.

So sad, he really had pure talent. I was a fan from the very early 80's, even grew up a few miles from his studio in MN. His music was a big part of the soundtrack of my youth.

The number of truly iconic musicians we have lost this winter and spring is unprecedented. :(
Prince, David Bowie, Glenn Frey, Merle Haggard, Paul Kantner, Maurice White, Scot Weiland, Lemmy Kilmister....that's going to be one helluva band playing on the Great Concert Stage Above.

This one put me in tears. Prince was my all-time favorite musical artist(and I listen to a lot of music and genres). He was only 57 and didn't abuse drugs ever so it really shocked me. My sister(nurse)said it is probably a heart attack or he had an illness he wasn't sharing with the public. Prince was an ICON as was Bowie(but he was a lot older).

Oh god I feel old today, this is the first one to really hit me, the 80's was my youth :cry: This is the performance that came to mind for me, I remember watching it live and thinking no one will ever top this at a Super Bowl:

Google even changed their logo for him today. Purple Rain.

Seriously, WTF. I know he was in the hospital last week but they released him right after and I thought it was exhaustion/dehydration... didn't he play a show right afterward?

Unbelievable. 2016 is like the Year That Music Died. :cry:
