If U Had Known That Prince Was Possibly Going To Die 4-21-16

What would you've have like to do/done way before this date(4-21-16)?

Go to as many concerts as possible? Try to visit Paisley Park? Show more appreciation towards him inspite of albums/songs that may or may not be his best material?

Unite in Prayer for divine intervention into his health crisis?

Try to somehow get those closer to him to help him even if he resist?

Get Prince to create a will, get more rest, take a vacation and a sabactical from live concerts performances. Seek professional help via Psychology?

Persuade Prince or get others to persuade him to stop wearing high hill shoes much, much more sooner, maybe like back in the mid 80s?

What would you have done if you had a pretty good hunch that Prince would be gone sometime in the spring of 2016?

Impossible for any of us to have known that, but my wish wouldve been for the Org members who constantly posted hateful stuff towards him to stop at least for a day. The man had feelings sad

I can't speculate about that and I hope the org doesn't get inundated with too many threads of this sort...

I would have flown to MPLS, kidnapped him, taken him to a hospital and made sure he was handcuffed to the bed with 24 hour nurse care.

I have to giggle at this. He definitely would have been dragged out of PP that day, kicking and screaming if need be.

We'd have chipped in on any expenses for all 4 of you.

I really had to think about it. As squeaky clean as we'd like his reputation to be, complications from the flu would be intolerable for me right now.

I would have moved heaven and earth to get to his Piano and a Microphone show at Paisley Park. I will regret missing that for the rest of my life.

I know the Org would have sent us too razz The flu can kill, but I just think he was dealing with so much that his lil body couldnt fight it alone sad As fans we couldve took care of him and he damn sure wouldnt have died in an elevator...damn.

I usually get a terrible feeling when something bad is going to happen, disaster, people close to me passing away. The females in my family see a blue light flash before a death. I'd seen the blue light & I was so down the 10 days or so prior to 21st April. The Tues morning at the gym class I go to I kept staring out at the trees & fighting back tears as I knew somebody was leaving. I thought it was my sick uncle in Oz, never in a million years did I guess it would be Him. Told my mum the weekend before it that I could just lay down & die, that's how I was feeling. Put it down to being too tired. Woke up that Tues before thinking of ancestors, how when they died they became only a memory, then through the years they became a mere story, finally to be only a name written on a birth/death certificate. Can't imagine Prince every being anything other than the most beautiful memory of music, that will echo throughout eternity...

Hmmmm...interesting.

I definitely wouldnt have wanted Prince to do another concert. I would have let the man take a vacation. A vacation where he could have fun and time to think and time to finish his memoirs. A place to write goodbye notes to people who really loved him and in doing that, he would have made peace with the past. A place where Prince could write his will without the interference of others to delay his train of thought. A place where prince could finally be free without the demands of others being placed on him. A place where Prince could spend the last few days of his life with the woman who captured his heart and truly made him happy, whoever that lady was. If Prince wanted to write songs while on vacation, i would have let him do it but i would not have pressured him to do it. I am thinking the vacation spot would have been hawaii or croatia...someplace really beautiful.

I wouldn't have gone home for winter break. I'd've gone to Minnesota - to Paisley Park. I'd've waited at the gates every day until they let me speak to him. I would've done anything just to have a hour or two to just talk with him. He seems like he knew everything. I wanted to know everything he knows. I wanted to experience his presence. I wanted to be as close to godliness as you ever could and that's Prince.

Kicking and screaming I tell you. Anything short of the National Guard, 'cause they have automatic weapons you know, I'd have to think twice about bumrushing something like that. But yeah, a rant on his part be damned. Alone my...uh...ear.

Yeah, I'm in tantrum mode.

Same here. I just didn't stay on top of the ticket situation and didn't think they would be sold in advance...really dumb assumption. But I have regretted that since January and like you, I will always regret it. I saw the two atlanta shows, but it is small consolation.

I would bring him to a tropic island for a long vacation so he could relax,with doctors and nurses to check him if needed. And do whatever he wants to do, like maybe fishing or swimming in the sea.

I was rehearsing my last play and was also sicker than a dog when that show happened. I could have called in sick to the rehearsal and driven to Paisley Park, but I had such a terrible cough that I was afraid I'd ruin the show for everyone else. Another case of "no good deed goes unpunished." confused
