Prince died today. He was 57.

He was found unresponsive in the elevator in his estate, and, well, there you go. He’d been feeling ill on and off the past couple of weeks, and he’d even had to go to a hospital mid-flight on his jet. But they let him go after three hours there.

I guess his time had simply come. But too soon, man, too soon. He was, to put it mildly, a living legend.

Now he was gone.

He was most in vogue during my budding career as an FM DJ in the late 80s, and continued to peak towards the end of the century and the beginning of this one.

I remember playing I Would Die 4 U and getting caught up in the wonder and magic of the song, and wondering, who is this guy?

In honor of the man, I’m playing him non-stop today on iTunes Airplayed on my Apple TV and home theater.

So long, man.

Prince Rogers Nelson, 1958-2016.
