All doves cry.

All the world cries purple rain.

Nothing compares to him, he was such an authentic genius.

May he rest in peace.

May we and many generations after us remember him by listening and singing to the many unique songs he left us.

Thank you - he was very important to me in my college years.

And he had epilepsy, at least as a child!

I had no idea he had epilepsy!
He told about it in an interview:

http://www.nydailynews.com/entertai...ld-rare-interview-angel-told-article-1.365280
Pop icon Prince revealed a childhood struggle with epilepsy during a rare, soul-bearing interview.

"I've never spoken about this before, but I was born epileptic," the Grammy winning singer said on the PBS show Tavis Smiley. "I used to have seizures when I was young. And my mother and father didn't know what to do or how to handle it but they did the best they could with what little they had."
I wasn't into his style of music, a little "far out" for me. But he was a great one-of-a kind!

Here is my tribute Poem for Prince:

Gonna Rain

With cheerful tulips and sunny skies
April could shower us with surprise,
a new season, full of raindrops,
colorful, plentiful, at the top,
Prince filled his restless soul
with more than plain ole rock-n-roll,
April will shower "Purple Rain"
until we all meet again.

Saw the great Sign O' The Times concert movie (1987) tonight on tv, followed by the Purple Rain movie which is on now. Never been a real fan but I sure can appreciate His Royal Purpleness' authenticity and many of his great songs. Saw him perform live on the North Sea Jazz festival in The Hague in 2011, I was impressed.
