So when I came home from work yesterday I asked my 13 year old daughter if she knew Prince had died.
Her answer? “Who’s Prince?”
I billowed, “1999!”
“Oh the little purple guy!” She replied.
I remember seeing Prince in Toronto in the late 80’s at Maple Leaf Gardens.
A few things stood out.
#2 Great guitar player.
#3 It was liking watching a modern day James Brown.
Complete with a cape dude who mysteriously removed it and draped it over the star when he entered and left the stage.
He had a huge posse that surrounded him, some played, some danced, and some just stood there.
You knew it was magic but also an artist who was inspired by the greats that came before him.
Much like Bruno Mars, Drake and The Weeknd admired Prince.
What is sad about this transition in pop music and culture is, it happened way too soon.
I’m Scott Thompson.
Friday on The Scott Thompson Show!
How will Mike Duffy ruling affect other cases?
