Suckiest news ever. Loss of an icon. Such a talented artist and a true original. Purple Rain has to be one of the best albums of all time. I heard that everyone downloaded a bunch of Prince songs right after the news broke. I didn't have to do that because they are all already on my iPod
I was not much of a fan of Prince for a long time. When I started learning the guitar and studying some of his performances I gained new respect. There's a story out there that some one asked Clapton how it felt to be the world's greatest guitarist. He said "I don't know, ask Prince".
