@ehBeth,
Being reported at several sites. This would be a great loss to the music world and at a relatively young age.

Oof, noooooo!

There was a report a day or two ago about him being ill, somehow I wasn't worried, didn't save the link.

watching the clip with my friend reminded me what terrific female musicians Prince worked with - the bass guitarist, sax soloist, drummer in the clip I'm watching

Such sad news. I was always a huge fan.

I always respected how he managed to keep his life fairly private despite his immense popularity.

@tsarstepan,
Sad news. He made great music for decades. Prince first album was released in the late 1970s. I was mostly into his music from the late 1970s through all of the 1980s.

@edgarblythe,
I admire his creativity and his spirit. It's truly a loss. I wasn't that aware of the number of musical hits (like Another Manic Monday for the Bangles) that he wrote for other singers. I knew that he was a producer.
May he RIP.

Musicians/ stars/celebs seem to be dropping like flies. I wonder what did him in? I read some recent news article had him having being at the hospital with the flu.

@Ragman,
What a terrible loss, I loved his music videos. If his death was due to complications of the flu, that's a grim reminder of how deadly the flu actually is. What a shame, he was a giant talent and the world is a little less magical now that Prince has left us.

@glitterbag,
He was a biggie. I was never one who "got it".My all time most hated song is "Manic Monday", which he wrote for the Bangles.
He was a place keeper for several decades of really shitty clothes, bad lighting ,CHICAGO, and fondue.
Still, sad to see him go .

I remember when he had, and lost a child shorty after it was born. Very sad.

He wrote Nothing Compares to You farmer. That's a haunting song.

It's so shocking to me that people close to my age - who have scads of money for the best healthcare in the world - die so intolerably young.

He was such a sexy little man. I loved what he could do with a song. I used to think Little Red Corvette was one of the sexiest songs I'd ever heard.

I did mock him a bit during his days as a guy with a symbol as his name, but I appreciated his extraordinary talent, and I'm sorry he's dead.
