The Artist Formerly Known As Prince
I came of age with Prince. The memories of my early dating years are inexorably interwoven with the albums and the songs, which Prince produced. We have lost another Great One from the pantheon of music’s most talented. It is only fitting that I express my loss through the artist’s own words: From “So Blue”… “You meant the world to me, but now you’re gone and I’m so blue.”
Prince was found died Thursday morning in his home recording studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota and was pronounced dead at 10:07 a.m. His publicist later confirmed to the public that the music icon had died at his home.
He was “a true artist in every sense of the word.” He released more than three-dozen albums over his four-decade career. He scored more than 50 Top 40 hits around the world since 1979, including such songs as “When Doves Cry,” “1999,” “Little Red Corvette” and “Raspberry Beret.” Purple Rain, and many more.
