PrincepurplerainI was never a big fan, but Prince was a part of my formative high school years. Purple Rain hit the movie theaters and the air waves in 1984 and I think every girl in school had a thing for the man. I wasn’t a fan, as I said, but I did enjoy the movie, and that soundtrack was the only prince album I ever bought. In fact, I think I bought it twice, once on cassette and once on CD.
He was a musical dynamo. A one man powerhouse. And its sad to hear that he passed away today at the age of 57. That’s too damn young.
