Prince was just pure awesomeness, loved him (major crush too). Best concert ever of his that I went to was during his Purple
Reign Rain tour ( ’86 maybe? -’85, I looked it up), we all held up illuminated purple roses, swaying them over our heads rhythmically, his entrance was him laying in a faux water-filled neon purple bathtub that slowly descended from the rafters high above, then, when he hit the stage he did so with all the energy of a hyper super nova and just didn’t stop, what a performer, what a guy. He was pure genius. This one hurts. a lot.
Huge loss, condolences to us all.
Until Prince passed, it never really occurred to me that none of my friends (past and present) were fans of Prince. I also never realized how deeply personal he was to me, to my life and worldview. His passion made us feel, he really brought it out, unabashed and unashamed, he was
my a musical therapist.
It’s been great reading (here on WordPress) so many other’s thoughts and experiences with and/or about Prince, what he meant to them and how he made them feel as well. It’s really helping with this huge feeling of loss inside, while other’s around me think/insist he was “just” a “celebrity”. Thank you all for that. Their loss, worse than ours. bigtime.
It’s wonderful that his music videos are working their way back onto the internet. Hopefully, there’s a change of heart where that’s been concerned and they won’t start disappearing again.
