Prince Rodgers Nelson......
The death of this consummate Artist was a jolt of reality. Prince's Minneapolis sound is to me the best of the1980's.
Prince paved the way for ARTIST to embrace their creativity and push the boundaries of music. He pioneered incorporating performance art thru the new medium of entertainment know as MTV!
His sudden death brings light of how we must live life to the fullest. Though his passing is sad he left an indelible mark on Music that will live on forever!
