2016 has been a crazy awful year when it comes to musicians so far. Legendary Prince has passed away at the age of 57 after collapsing in his home studio in Minnesota. I was never really a fan of Prince but I can’t deny he was an amazing guitarist and performer who was like no other.
Prince, a dizzylingly prolific multi-instrumentalist and virtuosic performer, was found dead at his home and recording studio in Minnesota early on Thursday, his publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, told The Hollywood Reporter. He was 57.
Deputies are on scene at Paisley Park in Chanhassen conducting a death investigation currently, authorities said. No further details were immediately available and the cause of death is not being released at this time.
