Today, music has suffered another great loss. Prince has been found dead, very unexpectedly, at his house and studio complex, “Paisley Park”. He was 57.
He was rushed into hospital on Tuesday, after his plane was forced to make an emergency landing. At first, it was reported he suffered light injuries, but later, it was explained he was just suffering from flu symptoms. A day later, he performed and seemed to be doing ok, which is why this news is something, no one saw coming.
Prince has been known to be eccentric. He tried to avoid doing interviews throughout his career, which wrapped him in a veil of mystery.
