Written by David James Young on March 6, 2018

In a year of some major losses in the entertainment industry, none quite hit the same way that the passing of Prince did in 2016. The Purple One lost a then-private battle with opioid addiction in late April at only 57 years of age. What followed was a long period of mourning across the worlds of pop, rock, soul, funk… all the galaxies that Prince’s music traversed. Tributes flowed in for the year to come – including, of course, from those that played alongside him live.

Thanks, Laura.
You’re finding some really good articles lately!



“The biggest one is what I call “Prince No. 5.” Prince was an extraordinarily giving type of person. A lot of people don’t realise how much he gave for people. They knew about the money, they knew about the girls, they knew about the music… all that stuff. One side they didn’t see, though, was how giving he was. He had his reasons, of course – he wanted to go about that side of things pretty quietly. He was so gracious about it, though – he was so supportive of his family, and all his band members. If we ever toured some place where one of us had grown up, he’d donate $100,000 to the school they went to. He’d never go public about it; never wanted to make a big deal about it. He cared so much about people – and for the longest time, it was off the record.”
