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

Small break in usual service, but I felt the need to mark the (sad) day... 2016 has not been a good year for celebrity deaths...

For a time, late 80's I guess, he was very rarely off my various music machines...  whatever the reasons he died, he was the same age as me...  good grief!

Enjoy -- the first track is monumental...


  1. And now again he is "the artist formerly known as Prince".

  2. I recall listening to party like its 1999 when it first came out and 1999 seemed soooo far in the future...

  3. I saw him once back in the late 80's. A class act and top musician.

  4. Not a big fan but certainly have more of his tracks on my iTunes than the overrated David Bowie. And he liked Sheena Easton!
