Can’t believe we lost yet another rock icon in such a short span of time and at such a young age. Only 57 years old!

Purple Rain is in my top 10 CDs of ALL-TIME. I Love every song! I still have the movie on VHS. And YES, I still have a VHS player. Although I’ve seemed to kind of wear out the tape from continuously pausing it in one particular spot. Something about a cleansing in the waters of Lake Minnetonka.

Larger than life on stage. His solo on “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” for the R&R Hall Of Fame induction of George Harrison will always be one of the most memorable music experiences of my life.

I revived my cover of the title track this past weekend and couldn’t believe how it affected everyone. Everyone loves Prince! Sing it! “Purple rain…purple rain….”
