PRINCE R.I.P. 1958-2016

Prince, the songwriter, singer, producer, one-man studio band and consummate showman, died on April 21, 2016 at his residence, Paisley Park, in Chanhassen, Minn, according to a statement from his publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure. He was 57. Carver County sheriff Jim Olson said that deputies responded to an emergency call at 9:43 am: “When deputies and medical personnel arrived, they found an unresponsive adult male in the elevator. First responders attempted to provide lifesaving CPR, but were unable to revive the victim. He was pronounced deceased at 10:07 am.”

Responding to news reports that Prince’s plane had made an emergency landing because of a health scare, Ms. Noel-Schure said Prince was “fighting the flu.” Prince, born Prince Rogers Nelson on June 7, 1958, was a man bursting with music - a wildly prolific songwriter, a virtuoso on guitars, keyboards and drums and a master architect of funk, rock, R&B and pop, even as his music defied genres. In a career that lasted from the late 1970s until an arena tour this year, he was acclaimed as a sex symbol, a musical prodigy and an artist who shaped his career his way, often battling with accepted music-business practices. Prince’s Top 10 hits included “Little Red Corvette,” “When Doves Cry,” “Let’s Go Crazy,” “Kiss,” and “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World”; albums like “Dirty Mind,” “1999” and “Sign O’ the Times” were full-length statements. “Purple Rain” (1984) also won him an Academy Award. - The New York Times

  3. Thank you So much for this. Sound is amazing. The very first concert I ever saw was Prince & The Revolution in Houston Tx. in Jan.1985 at the age of 14. This show truly brought me back to one of my fondest childhood memories. On my 45th birthday this past December , I was out to diner with my wife when checking my Facebook I received a message from someone who I did not know? Upon checking it I found out one of my very first best friends who I attended this concert with had passed away in a Motorcycle accident in Louisiana. The first thing I thought about was my first concert with him. Then on April 21st my oldest son phoned to tell me Prince had passed away. I was just thinking yesterday how great it would be if a Soundboard show of this Tour would pop up. This is the Holy Grail of Prince shows for me. THANK YOU Big O. You NEVER disappoint….
