The death of Prince has rocked me to my core. He was such an influential part of my life. The last 35 years of my life his music and his messages resonated with me and made me dance, laugh and cry. He always sought his truth through music. He challenged race, religion, sexuality, gender and love. His prolific nature and ability to play 27 instruments showed his talent and strong work ethic. He loved doing what he did, which is a lesson to us all! He also made women a huge part of his band! He did rock n roll, R & B, jazz, funk, new wave, punk, classical, and dance.He called his fans, friends. I got to see him in concert 4 times over the years. I have very one of his albums, yes even the latest ones. I was playing the Prince album form 1979 the night before he passed. The will NEVER be another!
