Another star has left to the house this year.
Prince Rogers Nelson was born in 1958. He was only 57 when he died.
I have such happy memories of his music, especially driving around in my little red Honda listening to "Little Red Corvette" and dancing to "Party Like It's 1999" at a house party. It was 1982, so this sounded very cutting edge at the time.
With his pompadoured hair and flair on-stage, he seemed inspired by Little Richard.
Prince apparently died of flu-like symptoms in his Paisley Park home and music studio.. I suspect more details will be forthcoming.
