WHEN DOVES CRY: Superstar singer Prince dies
http://www.cnn.com/2016/04/21/entertainment/prince-estate-death/index.html

I was just thinking about Prince in the past few days. 1999 and Purple Rain just kept coming across my mind, and I kept remembering all the wonderful times that those songs are tied to. It is a sad day for all his fans, and another sad day for the music industry.

My mind is filled with so many thoughts as I ponder the death of another icon in music history. Our lives are so tied to the performers in ways that we can’t truly comprehend. Our memories are formed as their music plays in the background, and indelibly, the songs and the artist, along with our memories, become one. When someone like Prince passes away, a part of us seems to be lost because he is such an important part of our lives and our memories.

Prince was an amazing artist, and he will be missed. He truly was gifted in so many ways, and his bounty of work will endure for years to come. His guitar says it all. Farewell, Prince.

Feel free to share your thoughts.

    Still trying to wrap my head around how much of influence he has been to so many people. I’m 43 and I can’t think of anybody except Michael Jackson that had our generation so excited to follow. A true icon

    • All of the artists that I grew up with and who were making and performing music in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s are all getting up in age. When Bowie died, I was telling my brother that it is going to be a common thing from now on because all the artists are getting older and close to the ages of 70 and 80. It is just a matter of time before lots of the Rock Stars are gone from us. When Frye died, I felt terrible, and still do, then Emerson, and now Prince. That is a lot connections to many childhood memories. I have been going through my Prince collection, and he sure had some nice perfromances. I particularly like the unplugged stuff. He was a great musician.
