R.I.P. Music Icon Prince

The musical dynamo know as Prince was born Prince Rogers Nelson on June 7, 1958, the son of a pianist in a Minnesota jazz band. During a dispute over the use of his name, he was dubbed “The Artist Formerly Known as Prince,” although he later reached a deal with the label and resumed the use of his given name. He was playing piano by age seven, guitar at 13, and the drums one year later. Prince, the multi-talented musical genius who emerged from Minneapolis with a unparalleled funk-rock sound that made him a global megastar, died suddenly Thursday at his home. On this day, he passed away but his spirit will live forget. Rest for eternity with the ancestors!!! Thanks for the memories! And that’s my thought provoking perspective…
