Prince Almost Died April 21, 1996

From Possessed: The Rise And Fall Of Prince by Alex Hahn

"On the morning of April 21, the palpitations grew worse and Prince drank wine to numb the pain. He consumed a full bottle and owing to his small body and fast metabolism, became intoxicated quickly. He also popped several aspirin. Whether he ate anything is unknown but in addition to being an incredibly light eater, Prince had recently embarked on a radical vegan diet that cut all animal products from his diet. The combination of alcohol, aspirin, stress and lack of sleep wreaked havoc on his slight five foot three inch, 125 pound frame. He was buffetted by waves of nausea and then began vomiting." - PAGE TWO

April 21st is a day that is eerie.

Prince recorded "Sometimes It Snows In April" on April 21, 1985.

At Paisley Park, Prince drank a whole bottle of wine and took several pills of aspirin to remedy chest palpitations and was sent to the hospital to have his stomach pumped after being found by Mayte on April 21, 1996

Prince found unresponsive in an elevator at Paisley Park, last seen alive at 8 pm the previous night.

April 21st is a day that I will dread for as long as I live.

What is it with April 21? What a strange coincidence.

Lack of sleep can definitely cause heart palpitations. I beginning to think Prince had some serious sleep issues and people mistook it for being a workaholic.

I wonder what happened on April 21, 2006. If he didn't require hospitalization on that day, I wish he had replicated it. I don't believe in superstitions but the day of April 21st is too freaky to not at least look at superstitions differently. Whenever they shoot Prince's biopic, a writer and director will have a lot of ways to tie the events of this day to the day he died. This is tragic like you wouldn't believe.

Hahn's story, something of a selling point for his book if I recall, was old news even for Prince biographies. It had already appeared in Liz Jones's Slave To The Rythym biog. Not sure if she included a precise date.

But his one known 'overdose' and rush to hospital happening 20 years to the day before his death is pretty weird. Weirder than adding up date digits and coming up with 7 at least. Especially when they add up to 25.

I'm sure we can't look into numbers.

4 +

2 + 1 +

2 + 0 + 1 + 6 = 16

1 + 6 = 7

I apologise, it's not funny but maybe that's my grief cycle .

2006? It said 1996, or did I miss another event?

Palpitations hurt? Wine to numb the pain? Huh? Seems all a bit odd.

Hey loudmouth, shut the fuck up, right?
