I woke this morning to the sad sad news. We have lost yet another of our musical inspirations. I grew up in the 80’s. My early years were influenced by Madonna, Aha, Wham, George Micheal, MC Hammer, and yes, Prince. My first memory of doing something against the wishes of my parents is of going to a sleep over where I knew the main form of entertainment was going to be a showing of Purple Rain. My parents still don’t know about that one. As a child he was illicit, and forbidden, and the draw to his music was irresistible. As an Adult, I came to see his range, his musical genius. Prince wrote his first song when he was 7. Can we say the same about many of the musicians today? The world is a better place for him being in it and a sadder place tonight for the loss of his music.
