        I just… I’ve been numb since I heard… He was such a prolific song writer and I cannot believe he, of all people, is not immortal!

        I know…I’ve read the same things. I hope it’s not true but some people live in very different worlds. Especially those whose creativity is beyond our understanding.

    A musical genius. He wasn’t everyone’s style, but his mastery of all things musical…just brilliant. The hardest thing to hear was that “he wasn’t done yet”. Lived in his studio, always creating, always original. So sad.

      You’re right, he wasn’t for everyone but almost everyone likes something he did. He created and recreated in a way only some understand. I heard someone say today that if you were speaking with him he would sometimes get up impulsively and walk away. When he was asked why he said that most people speak and hear words. He speaks and hears music. So if something triggers an inspiration, he reacts immediately. His mind was just wired very differently. Lucky for us.

    I used to live a few miles from Paisley Park and he sometimes put on free concerts there and in Minneapolis. He was gracious and generous in spirit. It seems like everyone is mourning his loss, especially here in Minnesota.

      I’m sure Minnesota has a special affection for him. He was a different soul, incredibly talented and very different. He enjoyed pushing the boundaries in every aspect of his life. I read, as you said, he was always very generous and appreciative of his home state and fans. He will be missed.

      Thank you, Kim. Good song choice. He always did everything with such passion. He will definitely be missed in the music world and for overall generosity, much of which he did anonymously.
