Legendary Musician Prince Dead At 57

I don't even know what to say...

Just found out this morning that Prince died.  That story hit me like a sack of bricks.  And I'm still feeling the aftereffects.

Last week, there was a news story circulating the internet about him making an emergency landing due to flu-like symptoms after canceling a gig in Atlanta, at the Fox Theatre.  Supposedly, he was doing well.  Then today I hear the news about him passing...?!

Seriously...Prince is dead?!!

Right now, I have no words to describe this whole situation as I'm trying to process the fact that the music world has lost another talented icon.  Truth is, I want to weep buckets of tears but I can't bring myself to do it.  Hearing of his death feels like another part of my childhood died right along with him.  I was raised on his music, just like everyone else on this earth.

With that, I bid farewell to this great man.  I would like to thank him for such beautiful music.  Hopefully he and Vanity will throw a splendid concert within the Pearly Gates.

Rest In Peace...
