Top of Mind Thursday April 28 2016: The Artist Formerly Known as Prince

Top of Mind Thursday

It’s turning out to be a bad year for aging recording artists.  Last Thursday, Prince was found dead at his home in Minnesota at the age of 57.

I have to confess that I have never been a die-hard Prince fan. I liked Purple Rain and some of his other hits, but that was about it.

However, what’s come out in the last week has been an overwhelming number of tributes not just from fans, but from other musicians, who considered Prince to be one of the best musicians of their generation. He also had the courage to fight back against what he considered an unfair agreement with a record label, by giving up the use of his own name until the contract expired.

Unfortunately, all that talent, fame and money was not enough to allow Prince to live a long life. But while he was alive his unique branding certainly helped him stand out above the noise in the music world.
