RIP Prince

Sad, sad news - and he did the best SuperBowl Show evah!

His name was Prince, and he was funky.

I feel like he had a lot left in the tank, too.

I only saw him live once, at Madison Square Garden in 2004. Prince and his band did two 90-minute sets and in the intermission, while his band took a break, Prince did a solo set with acoustic guitar - "Little Red Corvette" never sounded so powerful!

He recently performed in Montreal and Toronto but several summers ago in Mtl during the Jazz festival he did a show at an old theater converted for concerts. He only showed up at around 11:30 but rocked and performed well into 3 am. No one I can think of could do that. We think of three score years and ten, Bernstein firmly believed it but to leave at 57 years old is truly tragic.

Radio 3, Radio Nacional de Espana has done a fine job of providing memorable musical biographies of the big losses in the music world. Today, since 6 AM on Como Lo Oyes, the tribute to Prince has figured at the center of their programming:

Natalie Cole, Glenn Frey, David Bowie, Merle Haggard, and now Prince, they have all received a great posthumous review of their lives and music on Radio 3.
