They're saying it was possibly pneumonia or flu-like symptoms.

Man, this is hitting me hard. I had been keeping a close eye out for him doing a short-notice NYC gig - now just memories of the two times I was blessed to see him perform. RIP.

You've had that dream too?

RIP Prince

Shit, I just freaked out about this the other day when Prince was hospitalized and was relieved that it was "nothing." Did he push himself too hard or what?

Too damn young. Still trying to wrap my mind around it. So many Prince memories. I'll never get to see him at tiny, impromptu late night gigs again. This fucking sucks.

If you want to listen to some Prince but don't have any physical albums, get a fee trial from Tidal. It's all on there. I know I'll be blasting Prince all day. There's still so much of his discography that I haven't heard.

RIP. So many greats going away this year - Bowie, Lemmy, Prince. Makes you think about Dylan, Macca et al.

Devastating. The show I saw at the Forum is one of the best concerts I've ever attended. Again, Fuck 2016.

Amazing. Definitely not a show for the causal fan, and they usually weren't.

"You want me to slam it?" he recalled Prince asking MJ. He did not. "Michael drops his paddle and holds his hands up in front of his face so the ball won't hit him. Michael walks out with his bodyguard, and Prince starts strutting around like a rooster. 'Did you see that? He [Jackson] played like Helen Keller.'"
Fuck yes.
