Another heartbreak today…Singer, songwriter, multiple instrumentalist, actor, record producer, film director, ….Musical genius and icon, Prince Rogers Nelson… has died at 57. He sold over 100 million records world-wide making him one of the greatest musical artist of all time…He won seven Grammy’s, A Golden Globe, and Academy Award and inducted in Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame!
Growing up I was the anything from Minnesota fan. It started with PRINCE… People wont share this part but I will because I was a genuine fan! My love for Prince was personal. I’m 5’3 he was all of 5’2. Anything I wanted because my “uncle” knew him well…I got some favored treats!
As “strange ” as he wanted to be… I adored him! His music growing up was my era of edginess. As cutty and racy his lyrics were our parents then, fought against such sexuality!
Our secret about Prince he was also a very good “drummer”…although there was nothing he couldn’t play including the guitar!
I had his first poster which my mother called him “wolf” because of his hairiness! And to be honest, most of the songs I liked from him was somewhat sexually explicit…so I can’t post my true favorites…God No! (LOL)
I know there will be more outpour this week about his history in this music industry, seen as one of the greatest musical geniuses of all time!. His life and legacy was absolutely phenomenal!
To his personal family, the Paisley Park , New Power Generation, and Revolution family, friends and loved ones… our prayers and condolences… are with you… He will be sorely missed!
