Prince: 1958 – 2016 April 21, 2016

Very sorry to hear the passing of a genuinely unique talent. Even in death his idiosyncratic approach holds sway – you’ll search in vain for online audio on YouTube of his tracks (I’d always wanted to do a This Weekend on him but in the absence of the music it seemed pointless). Always loved Raspberry Beret, indeed all of Around the World in A Day. And that was just the start – so many great albums, and if more recent ones felt a bit minor, well they had their moments. He’ll be missed.
