Prince passes away


As if we haven’t lost enough wonderful people already this year, musical icon, innovator and visionary Prince has sadly died aged 57. The cause of his death has not yet been released but he was rushed to hospital last week for severe, flu-like symptoms. Prince had an unparalleled career that influenced countless people and spanned nearly 40 studio albums. His eclectic and eccentric catalogue included such massive hits as ‘When Doves Cry’, ‘Little Red Corvette’, ‘1999’, ‘Kiss’, ‘The Most Beautiful Girl in the World’ and his signature song ‘Purple Rain’. A mysterious and secretive figure he was one of the most imaginative creative forces in music combining rock, soul, funk, R&B and electronica. He had an incredible vocal range, was a peerless multi-instrumentalist and was among the best guitarists ever to walk the Earth. He has left a remarkable legacy and will be sorely missed.
