RIP.

Don't really know too much of his stuff outside of some of the biggest hits and a recent single or two, should probably rectify that at some point.

Way too young. Very very sad.

So glad that I went to one of those at Paisley Park over two years ago at the last minute on a whim. Getting to shake hands and talk to him afterward briefly was just a sidenote compared to seeing him live finally. Was always hoping to get the chance again and even nearly went to one of the piano performances he did recently. But I'll always be grateful for the one time now.

Pretty much. What the hell? Shitty news to wake up to.

Any chance somebody can build some sort of protective shield around all living musicians?

I can't get over him passing away in April. It's just too poetic.

Listened to Musicology today, very enjoyable record. It's the newest Prince album I've heard, before that it was The Gold Experience from way back in 1995. A Million Days is excellent and worth the price of admission alone.

I'm going to spin the b-sides disc of The Hits/The B Sides later. I'm woefully ignorant about Prince's non-album material, as I am about many of my favorite artists. Really looking forward to digging in because I know there are some classics in there.

Blasted PURPLE RAIN in the car on the way to and from work and teared up at "Thank u 4 a funky time" during Darling Nikki. Wasn't expecting that particular line to hit me so hard but I guess it sums up what I was feeling/wanted to say.

I thought about going to his first piano-only gig a month or two ago and even the dance party he threw on Saturday night. Sadly, you just never know when there will be no more chances.

I've already seen lots of posts online asking that we put Springsteen and the likes of them into a "panic room" until January 1st, 2017, with doctors on standby.

2016 isn't a good year so far in that respect, indeed.
