    Oh no! Dammit. What a great talent. Really had hoped to see him live at least one more time.

    Me neither. He just played here but I didn't want to spend the money and assured myself I'd catch him next time.

    This is just awful. I'm so glad I got to see him at Coachella. One of the best years ever.

    I was a little lukewarm on Prince until seeing him live...wow. Such an enormous talent. Last time I saw him we had bought cheap seats in the very back of the arena, but ended up in row one, lower bowl. Him doing Purple Rain (which was not a big fav of mine) on the piano, just feet away, was the highlight I will most treasure. So moving.

    Very sad this morning. What a shocker.

    Heidi just told me that apparently there's been rumors that he's had HIV/AIDS and the JW convinced him to stop taking medication? Please don't let it be that.

    That's quite a shock. Took my teenaged daughter and a bunch of squealing kids to see him in 1982/1983? It was fabulous!
    Then saw him in 2008 on my husband's birthday@ Coachella...it was a set that was one of my top 3, ever.

    He was magic.An iconoclast.

    Very very big loss.

    If the JW part is true, my anger will be sky high. This is why we can't have nice things (and healthy people).
