A Boy Named Prince


Death. Right? It's the subtext to everything we do, everything we know, everything we dream, everything we think. It's the subtext to every moment. Whether we choose to read the subtext or not. Death is always there - behind, underneath and beside us - always. It's the great leveler. No matter how young or old. How rich or poor. Happy or sad. How ready or not.

A boy named Prince. Prince Rogers Nelson (June 7, 1958 - April 21, 2016). 57 years old. Seems too young to be gone. A shy man. A genre all his own. Combined an audacious sexuality, and a strange religiosity. A consummate musician. A prodigious work ethic. Could do it all. And always, always, did it with a grandly beautiful style.

Prince was always cool. Even when he wasn't cool. He was cool!

BTW - Here's Greg Kot on Prince's "Towering Legacy."
