Devastated. That's how I feel. I've been a fan of Prince's since I was a little kid and first heard Little Red Corvette and all those other great songs he put out in the 80s. Then I became an even bigger fan in my twenties and on when I bought The Gold Experience. I was lucky to see him perform live in concert twice - 1998 and 2004. That second concert was the best concert I ever attended. Wish I saw him one more time. I can't believe he's gone. Never be another like him.

I was pretty surprised to hear about his death, too.  I was always more into classic Prince, than I was with the NPG stuff, and after.  I was surprised to hear he put out like 15 albums since 2000.  Dude worked right up until the end. 

 

I liked how he could play guitar, and sing well, too.  I never realized until today he could play so many more instruments.  I think almost every genre today can be said to have some influence from Prince.

It's just surreal. I didn't feel remotely surprised when I heard the news... the way musicians have been passing away recently, I just felt like... "of course."

Yeah, well. There'll never be another Bowie, there'll never be another Prince. It hurts losing truly unique voices.

I liked his musice.  I, also, really respected the hell out of him for all the instruments that he can play.  He can play anything, right?  Guitar, drums, piano, you name it.  He was incredibly talented.  Boy, can he get a hot woman, too.  ;)

The guy definitely was a musical genius...not in the complementary sense, but based on singing, how many instruments he could play, the fact he wrote his songs, gave a great performance, and all the music he helped other artists produce and wrote for.  I didn't pay attention to his later stuff, but his classic music, the music he is mostly known for, is phenomenal.
