Man, it's been a rough year for celebrity deaths! Prince has unfortunately been added to that list: http://www.cnn.com/2016/04/21/entert...-estate-death/
I was only a peripheral Prince fan. I never bought one of his albums and I haven't seen Purple Rain. Despite that, he was still a noteworthy oddball musical genius to me, and I'm sorry to see him go. There was continuing coverage on NPR today and I found it both fascinating and irritating to hear anecdotes of the people who had worked with him in different capacities. The world feels a little less weird today.
