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.
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.
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 .
