RIP Prince

Posted by on Apr 21, 2016 in A Featured Post, RIP

Prince is one of those artists who went out and did their own thing, drawing from highly varied influences; he made exciting music that crossed genres. In my childhood he was frequently on the radio, I may or may not have owned multiple copies of Purple Rain on cassette due to overplaying that ruined the tape. Songs like “Let’s go crazy”, “Darling Nikki” and “When Doves Cry,” still make me stop flipping the radio dial.
I am also old enough to have actually partied like it’s 1999 on the eve of the new Millennium. A theme for many of us for the entire year, but that New Year’s Eve holds special memories for me.
It is sad we lost such another great guitarist and song writer.
While look for a quote to commemorate his life, I thought this one fit so perfectly: “Music is music, ultimately. If it makes you feel good, cool.”
I couldn’t of said it better myself, Prince! So, dust off those cassettes and pop in a Prince tape if you still have a player, turn it up loud, in remembrance of the legend.
