'Prince In The 1980's'; 'The First Time I Heard Prince' (Okayplayer)

Prince Rogers Nelson aka 'Prince' (June 7, 1958 – April 21, 2016): The Music World Mourns the Passing of a True Genius

Prince In The 1980's



No amount of words from myself will do Prince's legacy and contributions to music and popular culture anywhere near the justice it deserves.

Therefore, I will not even try to.

I do, however, recommend the wonderful documentary above - featuring members of Prince's legendary The Revolution and esteemed writers including Paul Gambaccini - which looks back at Prince's - parden the pun - most purple patch.

 Equally essential viewing below thanks to Okayplayer.

 

As is to be expected at such a terrible time as this, many in the beatmaking community are creating musical tributes to one of the most - if not the most - influential musical artists of our time.

A special 'Soundcloud Sessions' featuring the best of these tributes shall be forthcoming.

Prince Rogers Nelson, thank you.

Prince Rogers Nelson (June 7, 1958 – April 21, 2016).
