Re: Prince passed away at 57


Wow, that is very sad to hear. I remember his songs and everything when growing up. He was a very talented artist that is for sure.

For him to die from the flu, wow, that is something. RIP to Prince.

Really sad to learn of this... what a rough year. We've lost David Bowie and Glen Frey. :-( All of the musicians from my youth are passing away.

Don't forget Lou Reed...

(Also, for the Aussies, we lost John English as well)

They were all too young! What hope is there for us mere mortals?

They asked Eric Clapton once "What's it like to be the greatest guitarist in the world" His answer, "Why are you asking me? You should ask Prince."

Re: Prince passed away at 57

Of them all, David Bowie is the one I can say I was a real fan of. No arguing that Prince was one of the most talented, creative, innovative, prolific writers/producers/performers/recording artists of our time, and will be sorely missed.

I know he was more under the radar, but Chris Squire of Yes was one of the most innovative bass players to influence rock & roll, IMO. I felt a personal connection with his work.

Re: Prince passed away at 57

Ah, no. It's Jon sorry, not John.
He was a prolific singer songwriter and appeared in stage and musical shows like "Jesus Christ Superstar" as well as writing some himself.
