Prince

Wow, we've all heard the news by now.  Prince, dead at 57, on Thursday, April 21, 2016.  Just one week after I apparently saw his last concert (April 14, 2016, Fox Theatre, Atlanta).  Should have known something was up when his private plane had to land in Illinois on the way back home to Minneapolis.  I mean, if he had the flu (reason given why he rescheduled the original April 7th Atlanta date) you would think he would just push on ahead to Minneapolis which would only be another half hour away, hour at the most.

I'd post a few songs, but they'd probably just get taken down.  Having said that, here are two great links.  Listen if you have time, they're pretty long ... but worth it.

From Creative Loafing (local Atlanta paper):

From Consequence of Sound:
"Prince’s legendary Coachella 2008 performance posted online in honor of late musician — listen"
"During which he covered Radiohead, The Beatles, Sarah McLachlan, and The B-52s"

Finally, I was proud to see that Google updated their home page very quickly.
