The legendary megastar Prince left us behind yesterday, as he so often did with his groundbreaking, extraordinarily prolific career in music. He was a true revolutionary, one of the musicians who defined Pop, while at the same time infusing our hyper-produced recording scene with a refreshing blend of authentic, innovative, artistic and beautiful music – almost all of it composed, performed and produced by the man himself.
57 is not enough years, but it was plenty for Prince to make a huge, forever-mark on the music world. From Purple Rain to 7 to Nothing Compares 2 U, he provided the pop soundtrack of my young adult life, and I have always counted him amongst my very favorites.
Thanks to Prince – a genius and a legend – for a life that created so much musical joy for so many.
Thanks for reading.
