Prince, RIP


He was 57 years old, but really, he was ageless. His Purple Rain album was the soundtrack of my senior year in high school. I saw the Alphabet City tour when he came through DC, and remember it as one of the best concerts of my life. Only 57 years old. Prince fans will understand this reference:

And my fellow Eighties devotees will remember this well:
