Prince death,the last hours of a musical legend as Purple reign ends!

Prince dead at the age of 57.He died at his estate,Paisely Park studio in Minnesota, just days after he was rushed to hospital from his private plane with flu. I am just in a total state of shock that Prince has passed on.Only over the weekend was i reading how he had gone to a night club to show the fans he was still alive,he then told them to save their prayers for something else,if only he had known.This was in relation to him falling ill and his plane having to make an emergency stop so he could be attended to.
Paramedics were called out to his Paisley Park estate at 9.43am and Carver County
Sheriff's Department confirmed that 
there had been a fatality.
A forensics team and a medical examiner are at the scene.
Prince - full name Prince Rogers Nelson - was hospitalized six days ago with flu symptoms.

See man who predicted Prince will die one  year ago here.

Prince has died aged 57 at his estate in Minnesota

Prince was arguably the greatest musician of the last 40 years,he might have been pint sized,but he was a musical giant who broke all grounds and never compromised.I thought Prince was going to live for ever,and i just can't believe he is dead! 
A friend sent me a message on Whatsapp and said have you heard?I sad heard what? And he said that Prince is dead! I quickly rushed for the remote control and tuned on Sky News and there he was.Prince had in fact died.
Prince Rogers Nelson, was an amazing singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and actor, serving as a major figure in popular music for over three decades.

He was aboard his private flight when he fell ill, forcing it to make an unscheduled landing in Illinois on Friday morning.
TMZ reported that the seven-time Grammy award winning singer's plane diverted to Quad City International Airport in Moline, Illinois, to make the emergency landing. 
He had had been suffering from flu for a number of weeks and was believed to be recovering, but took a turn for the worse in the early hours of Friday.
He was treated for three hours before being released.

Prince death comes just 3 months after the death of another legend,David Bowie.
According to the Sheriff’s department investigating Prince’s death, he was found in an elevator at his Paisley Park home in Minnesota. They said they performed CPR, but were unable to revive him. He was pronounced dead on the scene. The Sheriff’s Office told TMZ that they are now investigating the circumstances of Prince’s death but do not suspect any foul play. The 57 year old singer was epileptic. He had a health scare on his private jet on Friday last week and the next day after leaving the hospital, he had a party and invited strangers to his party and everyone said he seemed fine

Prince hit up a local pharmacy hours before he died — the 4th time he visited this week — indicating his health was far worse than the simple flu. TMZ obtained this photo of Prince leaving a Walgreens near his home in Minnesota Wednesday night at around 7 PM. Our sources tell us Prince had frequented the Walgreens for years — but last night, people at the store were concerned because he looked much more frail and nervous than usual. As we previously reported, Prince’s team told the media he was suffering from the flu. It seemed odd, because his private jet had to make an emergency landing in Moline, Illinois last Friday, just 48 minutes from his home. Prince was hospitalized … but was discharged after only a few hours. Our sources in Moline told us at the time they felt Prince left the hospital way too soon because he was “not doing well” and needed further medical care. On Saturday, the day after he was released from the hospital, Prince took the stage at a dance party near his home and curiously said, “Wait a few days before you waste any prayers.”

Initial reports on his condition painted a much graver pictures, with one source claiming at the time he was 'not doing well'.
The Purple Rain hit maker had performed at The Fox Theatre in Atlanta on last Thursday night - the second of two back to back sold out shows - and had seemed fine during the concert. 
Prince made what is believed to have been his final public appearance on Saturday at a dance party in Minnesota.
He was keen for people to have 'living proof' that he is still alive, and he arrived at the bash to show off his new guitar and piano.

He didn't sing, but he did tell the crowd: 'Wait a few days before you waste any prayers.'

Prince was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 1958 and started making music at the age of seven. 
He went on to have four number 1 albums in the U.S. starting with Purple Rain in 1984 and continuing with Around The World In A Day, Batman and 3121.

There are so many sides to the enigma called Prince.Songs written by Prince for other singers included,Manic Monday for the Bangles,The Glamorous life for Sheila E,Sugar Walls for Sheena Easton,I feel for You for Chaka Khan,Do me Baby for Melissa Morgan and probably the most famous Nothing compares to you by Sinead Oconnor.

How did Prince die will be a question asked for many many years,for now we don't know much.All we know is he was found alone in his Paisely Park Studio near the elevator or inside the elevator.There are also suspicions he could have taken a drug overdose for his pain,its still all speculations at this stage.

There are some comforting parts to hold on to.Prince lived his life just the way he wanted to and packed 100 years into his 57 years.I guess he knew he had a short time,that's why he released so many songs and did so many shows.His after party concerts in the 80s and 90s were legendary.I am so glad that i managed to see my heroes Michael Jackson,Prince and James Brown live before they died.Prince died just the way he would have liked to.In his studio at Paisely park.
Rest in peace your Royal Badness and paint the Sky purple.Eye am gonna miss u.
