“Prince has passed away at his Paisley Park recording studio.”

We’ll party like it’s 1999 tonight. I remember when I was a boy, hearing Darling Nikki, and the whole masturbate with a magazine line…that was perhaps the first inkling of sexuality I ever remember.

Good Night Sweet Prince.

This is what it sounds like when doves cry.

When asked what it feels like to be the best guitarist alive, Eric Clapton said,

“I don’t know. Ask Prince.”

Rest in Peace, Prince.

Life is like a party and parties weren’t meant to last.

“I never meant to cause you any sorrow

I never meant to cause you any pain

I only wanted to one time to see you laughing

I only wanted to see you

Laughing in the purple rain.”

Prince playing the Super Bowl.” “I saw Prince at the 06-07 Superbowl. The man put on one of the best performances ever in the middle of a downpour.”

“If I didn’t make music, I’d die.”

So many great artists have passed away in the first few months of 2016.

For more: Prince has passed away at his Paisley Park recording studio Thursday morning

“He truly was a musical genius. I love this guitar solo by him.”
