Just heard that Prince has died at the age of 57, damn!! Another of my favourite musicians has passed away far too soon. I vividly remember buying his album 1999 on cassette no less and being blown away at the sheer brilliance of the music. In fact I've still got that tape! Christ that was back in 1982.
From then on I was a fan and remember seeing him live during the diamonds & pearls tour at Earls court. It was an amazing gig with the purple one really rocking the house. Best get the prince cd fired up I think.
