Yeah, that's pretty young for a guy like him to die.

I don't want to be "that guy", but I never got into his music at all and didn't understand the love.  But still a shame since I know he was very influential in his quirky way.

While I was never a huge fan of his music, the guy was ridiculously talented...a fact I never really realized until long after his "prime" in the 80's.  He was an absolutely amazing guitar player.

People miss this because of the smoke and mirrors he put up around himself (often literally).

This is a very sad loss.

I was pretty much obsessed with Prince in the 80s and 90s, but kind of lost track of him later.  Went on Amazon last night and seeing each album/single brought back tons of great memories.  I had forgotten just how many amazing songs he had, and just how unique many of them were. 

Very sad.

I listened to Purple Rain, the album, today for the first time in years.

Wow, so many memories brought back and it's such a great album. The last track made me really sad in all its soaring, epic, guitar riff glory.

He had so many amazing songs that weren't even performed by him, time to track them all down since I lost track of that after about 2000 but assume he continued writing for other artists.

SNL is running their tribute this evening, hosted by Fallon. Those on the left coast should be on deck.

Just watched it. Man, the performances were unbelievable.

Also, I am speechless after reading this article and watching the CNN video embedded in it.
