Worst part is that since he hated streaming and free video I can't even listen to him in remembrance today.
Minnesota Public Radio station The Current is broadcasting an all-Prince set right now and for the foreseeable future, interspersed with some DJ commentary and listeners' memories.

Go watch him playing that blistering solo at the end of "My Guitar Gently Weeps". He blows away everyone on stage, makes Dhani Harrison go from somber to happy, and then he throws his guitar into the frickin' Astral Plane. He turned a sad song written by George Harrison, during a concert to memorialize George Harrison, into a bombastic celebration of life. That's how I'll always remember him.
I'm very grateful that I got to see him play live at the Forum in Inglewood. He was spectacular.

I grew up to Prince, I liked his music. He is without question a talented artist, I was lucky to see one of his last performances last month at Avenue where I work.
Rest in Power Purple One.
Very sad news. I really liked his music, and consider him to be one of the better all-around musicians the industry has ever produced. He's also easily in the top 25 of guitar players, I think. When I got home yesterday, I found out MTV had suspended all regular programming to play Prince music videos. First time I willingly turned to that channel in well over a decade.
