if anyone comes across any really good obits, can they post them here? I don't know Prince all that well and would like to read a good one. Like to hear more from Laz, too, who is almost single-handedly responsible for making me excited about Prince.

You should just look him up on Wikipedia.

TMZ now reporting that after a gig in Atlanta his plane made an emergency landing in Moline, IL where he was rushed to the hospital where he was given a 'save shot' presumably from an opiate overdose. That was 6 days ago.

I read that he was putting off hip surgery. I wonder if he was having a hard time with prescription pain pills? Prince didn't strike me as a recreational drug dude.

Highly recommend checking out 3121. It's my favorite post-1990s album. Doesn't break any new ground per se (though Black Sweat is pretty out there) but revisits sounds he hadn't in a while, some of his hardest stuff since The Gold Experience. Fury is a killer track, and he did a great rendition that year (2006) on SNL. Ferocious guitar playing.

Here's a non-YouTube link:

PRINCE - FURY (SNL LIVE 2006)


The mellower stuff has some great melodies as well. Here's another fav of mine from the album, and the other one he played on SNL that night:
