It’s with great sadness that we say goodbye to yet another musical icon, Prince
in 2016. With a career that began in the mid-70’s and burgeoning success in the early 80’s, Prince burst into the mainstream in the mid-80’s with his album and film, Purple Rain
. Purple Rain, a milestone album, is by many journalistic opinion one the greatest albums of all time; garnering many awards and frequent radio play even today.
One sign of true genius is the ability to deconstruct and re-invent yourself, which Prince did many times. Much has been written about his career and much more will be written about his legacy. In our humble opinion, a true cultural force crosses generations, crosses musical genres, establishes iconography, and touches people’s lives. Prince did all that and more.
