I think the combination of signs from working on his memoir, to the afro, to the solo piano shows, to appearing rail thin had me subconsciously worried he was close to the end. confused

Agreed.

RIP Prince. We will NEVER forget you. Thank you so much.

When I heard about the emergency landing, I was worried. Then I laughed my ass off and said to my wife, "Leave it to Prince to force an airplane to make an emergency landing because he has the friggin sniffles!" My wife said to me, "Something aint right. The flu...I aint buyin it." She got me thinking and I thought about it for a couple of days...kind of totally forgot about it until the morning of April 21, when my manager at work walked up to me and said, "Prince is dead." I looked at her as if she were crazy, went online and the roller coaster ride began. So not really a "premonition", but I had a funny feeling.

Make it so, Number One...

I had a gut feeling for a few months prior, and thus I was trying really hard to make it out to Paisley Park THIS summer when I was done with the semester. I'd already gotten a friend to make arrangements for a road trip there. When he said he had "influenza", I knew he didn't and so I kicked my plans into gear. But, when he had the event at Paisley Park and was riding his bike, I was put at ease a bit. Then, the whole thing happened during the last week of classes and I was too late. I still feel terrible and it made me hate my life and everything about being born at seemingly the worst time in history to ever be born. I really got the short end of the deal in birth - I never got to see him live.

I know I sound selfish and I made it about me, but everything (politically, socially, economically, culturally) in the world is mediocre and worthless and Prince and Game of Thrones were literally the only thing I had to look forward to. All of my career goals were inspired by Prince and I DESPERATELY wanted to meet him or at least see him in the flesh. Now, I never will and it makes everything pointless.

I believe in the existence of spirits. I read my horoscope religiously. I am subbed to a bunch of psychics on youtube. Even though i am spiritual to the point of extremes, i did not see this passing coming at all. There were no gut feelings. There were no premonitions. One psychic that i usually watch on youtube had predicted that a famous musician would die but she said it would be Bob Dylan. I had heard about the emergency landing but did not think much about it cause Prince was barely on my radar these last few years. That man and his attitude toward youtube rubbed me raw for a while but i digress. The only strange thing that happened to me in the weeks before Prince's passing which inadverently was that i found a video. I was doing my morning routine and something just told me to go find the mustang mix of TMBGITW. I ended up finding the actual music video for it and I was like"wtf! No way would Prince let this be seen!" So I guess that was my way of knowing something was wrong cause the rare videos almost never see the light of day.

I believe as well. The other night I was on Utube looking for videos of possible communications with Prince and I came across a woman who, on 4/22, did a Taro reading off of his energy from 3 separate decks. My mouth was hanging open by the end of it.

I've had so many weird things happen over the years that I guess were "premonitions" - things that came true about someone or something after I'd been thinking or talking about them. It's happened too often to just be coincidence so a few years ago I had my aura read and was told that I'm clairvoyant. I've joked and teased about it since then but generally I try not to think about whether there's anything to it or not. That being said on the night/morning that he died I had gone to bed late and I almost always read a bit or listen to music as I fall asleep and for some reason a link or blurb about Prince's super bowl performance popped up on my phone in the notifications or something I just can't remember exactly how it came about but there it was so I watched it again after not having seen it in a few years. I remember the wonderful, warm, exhilarating feeling wash over me that I always get watching one of his performances. Followed by the familiar frustration of wanting much more and searching in vain as I drifted off to sleep. When I heard the news a few hours later I wondered if I'd jinxed him or something, or if perhaps it was during those moments in the middle of the night as i was thinking about him that he took his last breaths.

I've also tried, over the past few years, to be open to and aware of my intuition and have had things happen that I can't explain. On the 19th I had a dream/visitation from my father which was amazing, and I hadn't had one in about ten years. Two days later I had a dream in the early morning hours of the 21st that I didn't remember until later. It was a sunny day and I was alone in a cemetary. Up ahead - all by itself, with no other graves around - there was a silver casket covered with white flowers, sitting on metal runners next to an open grave. As I approached it, I wondered if I was early or late for the burial because no one was there. I wasn't struck with dread like it was someone very close to me, but it was someone I knew. Like portent. When I remembered the dream I knew exactly who.

Yes, I was worried after I saw him in Sydney. He wasn't acting his usual self, felt like he was saying good bye and was so appreciative to our clapping/cheering. Once I heard that he was releasing a bio I started to get really worried, felt like he was doing many things that were out of character. I told my brother who is also a fan and he said he thought the same thing after seeing him. Of course I didn't want it to come true, like some others have stated. I felt like he knew.

The shows were just him and a piano. The sets were meant to be intimate, and he has used that format before (him and a giutar, ) during the musicoolgy tour. I have heard this good bye theory on many threads on prince.org it is really starting to make me think that some people are looking fior something to blame his death on. Trying to reason about such a thing is like beating your head on a brick wall.

During the Lovesexy Tour Prince talked about Loving God and no one thought he was dying or ill. Most of us saw a man who believed in God and he openly said it during shows.

I think he was doing the Piano and Mircophone for himself, they were not about him saying goodbye, they were simply him sitting at a piano, practising his craft, trying something a little different. I woiuld think that Prince was reacting to the crowd because of the intimate nature of the shows. Nothing more. He clearly did not know he was doing to die.

If you watch this:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_5MpLvK9R8

Prince was very appreciative torwards the crowd. Watch the video to the end, clearly he was emotional because of the crowds reaction. That was during the Musicology tour. Now after watching the video, was he saying good bye then too? did the video give you the feeling that there was something wrong? It was nolt out of his character - Prince being being emotional and appreciative is nothing new.

I didn't have those feelings, even with the airplane incident. Even if I did, they wouldn't do me or the world any good. That said, when David Bowie passed away, my first thought was that I still had Prince for another 20 years. Wrong! Last weekend, my cat - Camille (guess how she got her name?) also passed away. I've had her since 1999. This year is just a shit year for transition. But even that, is only because I want to call it that, and pull something sweet from the sour smile.

I had no clue.

Even so, looking at things...some weird signs are there.

Prince was born in 58. He would have been 58 in June. He was 57. There's a 57 in my License plate number. He died on the 21st. I was born on the 21st. I was born in June like he was.

I did a thread about a month and a half ago on the song "Into the Light". I didn't think anything of it but when he passed it sort of hit me that maybe God was trying to tell me something.

At the beginning of March I had a really vivid dream where I was attending a David Bowie memorial service, in my head there was playing this really stringy remix of some song they'd handed out to mourners.

We were gathered outside an Olympic stadium and the dawn-orange sky had been painted with giant purple indo-paisley, from the horizon up to the top of your field of vision.

Emailed an old friend about it, didn't really consider it more than a quite vivid dream after I woke up.

I think I deleted my org account a couple of days later as was getting fed up of posting garbled non-vibey rubbish whilst drunk. Nobody needs that.

I thought that it was strange that he would write a biography and be so talkative in all piano shows. He talked about his father a lot. But I put this down to old age.
I mentioned after Montreux that we could be happy to still have him. I sure noticed that he got easily tired and even sat down during concert!
I noticed he had changed.
But in Holland he suddenly was like a shiny new dollar and danced like a young man.l asked myself for the first time whether he was doped. He was so young.
I put it down to him being a star and having the means to pay for good medicine.
But when I heard of that plane Landing I sat down and new that was a bad sign. If they had to say it was the flu, it must have been really bad. He always Lied about his health. He was a strong star. I sat down and cried.
When the news came on that he was dead I hated myself for knowing him so well.There are times when you don't want to be right!

Me personally, I had a spiritual feeling. A couple of days before he passed I was in bed watching Purple Rain just enjoying his beautifulness in a whole lol. But a random thought popped in my head about how the world would practically end when he moved on heaven... how my heart would drop into my stomach... how their would be a dark purple cloud of sadness over the planet, and days later it happened. I felt terrible for even imagining such things but I felt 10x worse once it happened. sad

the "full circle" thing is another that i've mentioned, his sporting the afro and keeping it for longer than he did any other single look and also his piano tour, his first instrument was the piano, and the way he spoke, going back to his childhood and how his dad would make him marvel with how he played. Lamar Fike, Elvis' bodyguard, said he got an eerie feeling when he saw elvis all the sudden start to eat the simple country foods he had when he was a child. Here he was, could have had anything and all he wanted was the stuff of his boyhood he had "gone full circle" too.

I cant help feeling that the afro has something to do with all this. But I cant for the life of me think what it could be. Maybe it was a wig at some point during those years? Maybe he had hair loss from chemo? Ah! I dunno.....

Exactly, when he started to wear that fro, and covering up his chest he stopped using a great deal of his hand mannerisms, that were so sexy, he turned off the outwardly sexappeal, it was all business so to speak. only the music,no sexappeal-AND I WASN"T USED TO THAT-Not after 37 years, and 341/2 of those dripped sexappeal-

The Monday before Prince past, I was reading about the plane stop and all the speculations about it. I said Prince better sit down some where and rest or he's gonna kill his self. I had a feeling, but I had no clue what was going to happen a few days later.
Beautiful, Loved and Blessed

Thank You Prince

I've been reading posts on this site for years but never post. I did want to share though that two days before he died I said to my wife 'I think Prince is going to die'.
The many high profile deaths this year had got me worried but not as much as the aeroplane incident. I told my wife that it can't be flu. Nothing comes out of the Prince camp, he's so private, if it's flu, who's going to send that pretty dull information to the press? I guessed there might be something else wrong. I couldn't guess what but I didn't think anything else about it but when my wife shouted down that Prince had died I was shocked but not surprised.

My wife is entitled to a prescription of tramadol, yeah an opiate for medium strength pain. She doesn't use them as she's no longer in pain. But was still getting them for my use occasionally. I ran out about a week before he passed. I'd say my usage was fairly habitual, I work from home for a large company and I'm tied to my desk on the phone and PC, I originally thought it might be fun to work in my own mancave, but no, it no longer is.

.

They honestly made the day go quicker at work and helped me sleep.

.

Not a premonition as such, but when possible pain meds were brought up after Prince died, it made me think. Will i get some more in June (when she's entititled to them again) maybe. Will i start on a low dose, You bet.

.

The pain i feel is kind of real now. As Stevie once sang, this is no 'Ordinary Pain'.

Yeah, we'll, we'll try to imagine what silence looks like.

At the beginning of the year, I don't know what triggered it, but I started feeling upset as if grieving before anything happened. When Vanity passed, my feelings got worse, but I can't explain it. I was already mad at Prince before knowing anything about illness or pain medication. I was never crazy about the afro, but me understanding hair products, you can only go so many years with chemicals before needing to do the "natural" style for a while so your hair can get healthy again. So, that look didn't alarm me. What did alarm me was how quickly his face and lips starting aging. Anyway, my parents were the ones who told me about the Moline emergency. My heart dropped....I shrugged it off. A few days later, he was gone.

I truly believe something or some spiritual power was trying to prepare me, because I know me, and I know how I feel about Prince. I would have been a basket case if I was blind-sided with his death.

Welcome home class. We've come a long way. - RIP Prince

This is a trip. I even found this forum post by fluke. I haven't read through any of the posts YET, but I can't wait. I just want to see, in hindsight, if anyone's story is similar to mine.

I wrote in another post that I haven't been anywhere near the dedicated Prince fan as many on this forum. I've always loved his music and his music is my favorite, but he's never been at the forefront of my mind. I never went to a concert (regrettably). Other than his greatest hits, I didn't know the names of his albums. In terms of being a "fan," I sucked. But I have music I like, and then I have music I call my "soul" music--music that's a part of my soul. Prince's music falls into that category.

About 3 weeks before he passed. I don't know why. I hadn't heard anything on the radio or watched an interview to prompt it. But, out of nowhere, I became obsessed with all things Prince which really sucked, cause hardly anything on the net existed on the man (I didn't even know about his copyright battles with fans on the net.) Day and night, I scoured for anything I could find. I must've watched those two Tavis Smiley interviews and his superbowl performance a hundred times in one week (about the only thing on YT at that time.) I think his "Cream" video was on Vimeo, and I watched that a few times... which is strange for me, because "Cream" was never one of my favorite songs.

I honestly think if I'd lived in Minnesota, I'd have stalked Paisley Park. I was becoming THAT obsessed.... scared myself, actually.

I even started to create Prince related art to start a fan blog. I'm 39. I don't do fan blogs. But overnight I was like a crazed teenager drooling over Harry Styles. The ONLY reason the blog doesn't exist is because I thought Prince might sue me for using his likeness in anyway. But I was truly obsessed, and it all came from no where. That's not my personality. Nothing prompted it. I was normal one day, and the next day my whole existence centered around finding my next Prince fix.

It's almost like I knew he wouldn't be with us for much longer... like I was obsessed with finding some way to absorb as much Prince as I could, and hoped to let him know how much I appreciate his work while he was still with us. It's so strange.

I could not believe it when he passed--mostly in relation to my lunatic spaz-out over the man. I honestly feel like I knew it would happen. I feel like it was a premonition, because the behavior was so contrary to who I am as a person. I'm still tripped out about it.

Beautifully written. I find it fascinating how the mind and spirit work and all the little nuances, as is evident in your story.

Be glad that you found, researched, and loved him BEFORE he passed. As you can see now, it all has a different "spin" now that he has passed. Best wishes.

Eventually every cloud runs out of rain.

Yes.. after hearing "June" I knew he didn't have much time.

I told a few loved ones and dedicated a song to him in front of about 130 people on Wednesday night 4/20.. the night he died.

I still thought he had many more years left in him. Just when he seemed to be doing great things again.

When Bowie died, I told myself 'At least we still have Prince'.

One of the worst years ever for music.

Veli

First I'll say that in my lifetime, there have only been 2 real "celebrities" to me - Tupac Shakur and Prince. Everyone else was a mere mortal. I was 11 when 2Pac was killed so that was very hard. But since then, any time another celeb would die, I'd say "That sucks....but I'm glad it wasn't P!" And then I'd wonder to myself "I wonder if I'll get a 'feeling' before he passes away...if I'll know intuitively." Because of how hard I took 'Pac dying, I also wondered how well I'd do if I happened to outlive P. **I think I'm pretty clarivoyant and over the last 5 years I've spent a lot of time really working with how to trust my intuition.**

----------------

The past year or so, I thought each time I saw him "P looks sick" but I'd never dare utter that thought to another soul. I didn't want to put any of that negative energy on him.

----------------

So on Tuesday April 19, I was working, listening to my Prince playlist. It's got over 1800 songs on it, released and unreleased but when it came to Golden Parachute (which i've always loved because of the instrumentation) I kept it on repeat. As I was making my rounds, I had G.P blasting in my car...bass bumpin'. Theres a moment I still remember visually....I was backing into my space into my garge paying attention to the lyrics of the song and I became really sad by the time it got to this part:

They worship U, all up under U, applauding (Golden parachute)
One who in truth created nothing, nothing
In essence, a fraud

----------------

I sat in the car, listening to the final 2 minutes of the song just feeling really sad. Really sad. I began to think about P's legacy and thought "When he's gone...I hope they don't fuck it up. They're going to tarnish his name, everyone will have a story...I hope they don't bastardize his music like they did with 2Pac's when he died." I for some reason began to feel 'angry' towards Warner Brothers for their treatment of him. Then I brushed it out of my mind and said "Whatever. The song is old, he's patched things up with WB and as far as his legacy, P gon' live forever." That night I stayed up playing my guitar to unreleased stuff til 3 am, which is pretty common for me to do.

---------------

The next day, April 20, I was really grumpy all morning for some reason. But it was 420, I was off work so I got super high. By the time we reached Palm Springs, I was feeling melancholy and about an hour after arriving, we were riding around and I got this foreboding sense of death.

---------------

I KNEW death was coming. But my grandmother is sick...could it be her? Nah...it didn't feel like her. Was it my kid, my wife? Nah...didn't feel like them. So I became worried that it was my parents or myself that I was getting these feelings about. As they drove, I suddenly became aware of intersections as we crossed because my fear was that palpable. At first I thought "Man, maybe I'm just being paranoid, because I'm so high." But honestly, I've learned the subtle difference between high paranoia and a sense of foreboding, interrupting intuition. My thought was "No...you're not tripping. Death is going to strike somebody you love today...maybe even you." Everyone else in my fam was in an ecstatic mood, so I couldn't mention any of my thoughts or feelings to them because I didn't want to kill the mood.

---------------

So as we are riding around, I start thinking really hard about the last day of 2Pac's life...all the details I've learned about that day and his actions. I wondered 'did he know?' I'm trying to figure out why the hell I'm so focused on HIS last day, but by this point my feeling is so strong, I'm really thinking I might die so I'm trying to almost make peace with that fact.

---------------

We go to see the play and it's great. I have tickets to come back in 2 weeks and throughout the entire play all I could think was "this is one of those moments you will always look back on and wish you had 'known'. By the time you come back in 2 weeks, you'll wish you could have come back to this moment to know what you will know then." (It's hard to articulate how I felt intuitively) But the point is the longer the night went on, the quieter and more sullen I became and I'm usually ubeat, jovial and clowning. By the end of the night, we are at a restaraunt with the cast, producers etc. and I just didn't have it in me to talk. They found out what I do and were all trying to engage me, trying to network and I just couldn't. My family kept asking what was wrong with me. I just felt "off." They wanted to stay in Palm Springs that night, I opted to make the 2 hr drive back home at 2 am. Once I got home, I knew everyone was safe so I went outside, smoked and remembered looking up at the Sky/moon thinking "We're all safe. I was just trippin'. Everything is fine."

---------------

The next morning, I woke up...did a little work and a friend text'd me "Did Prince die?" After I cursed her out for such a cruel joke (lol. smh) I googled and they said police found someone dead at Paisley. My heart sank and I instantly knew 'this is why you felt wonky the past 2 days.' Because of how I felt all day on 4/20, it's my belief that he transcended on 4/20 and was simply found and officially pronounced dead on 4/21. it'll be interesting if reports confirm this once autopsy results are released. I've listend to all of his music daily, since then, but I still can't bring myself to listen to Golden Parachute. Here are the lyrics in full for those who are unfamiliar with it:

Golden Parachute

Hey! {x2}
(Hey)

Golden parachute

Do U wanna - golden parachute {x4}

Here's 50 million dollars - go'n leave us alone
(Do U wanna, do U wanna - golden parachute)
In appreciation 4 all the creations we now own - do U wanna'
(Do U wanna, do U wanna - golden parachute)
U brought us jazz, rhythm & blues, hip-hop
Even soul, ohh, golden parachute (Do U wanna - golden parachute)
2 own every piece of intellectual property - this is our goal
(Do U wanna, do U wanna)
Oh, yes it is (Golden, golden)
Golden, golden, golden gold
(Do U wanna - golden parachute)

Here's 50 million dollars, 2 go along with this boot!
(Do U wanna, do U wanna - golden parachute)
Just keep your mouth shut, and never tell of the plan
2 conquer and control the very soul of man
(Do U wanna, do U wanna)

Do U wanna - golden parachute
Oh oh oh oh oh! (Do U wanna, do U wanna - golden parachute)

This is a tribute 4 all your accomplishments (Golden parachute)
The design of a system that allows 4 tax breaks and benefits

Sugar, do U wanna' (Do U wanna - golden parachute - do U wanna)

17 years old, misled by so-called parachute
Down this cold road (Do U wanna)
Into this web of deception (Spiders and snakes and bears)
Money made but never spent, never mentioned (Golden parachute)
Ah let's make a toast, 2 the host, 2 the man with the most (Do U wanna)
They worship U, all up under U, applauding (Golden parachute)
One who in truth created nothing, nothing
In essence, a fraud

Golden parachute {repeats till end}

Wow. I'd say you def. had intuition. Perhaps you are an empath.

I have also wondered if they would ever change his date of death at this point, even if the autopsy results suggest it.

Eventually every cloud runs out of rain.

i had a nagging feeling about late april for a few months. i was actually worried about myself or someone in my family. now that i realize the depth of my grief, it was someone in my "family" after all.

I can't say I had any "premonitions" so-to-speak. Because Prince is so private I didn't expect him to publicly acknowledge Vanity's death back in February. The fact that he did actually surprised me. The fact that he cancelled the Atlanta shows due to illness wasn't alarming either. When I saw him back in April of 1997 at the Pantages Theater in Hollywood, everyone was inside the venue and a representative of Prince came out on stage almost an hour after the show was scheduled to start and said they might cancel because Prince had the flu (was there anyone there who remembers this)? Again, I bought tickets to see him at the Cox Arena (San Diego) in January of 1998 and that show was cancelled. Then I bought tickets for the show at the Forum in LA back on October 6, 1998 and that show was cancelled and rescheduled to October 15. Then the October 15 show was cancelled with maybe an hour or two notice because of illness. So to me, a cancellation was not unusual. The reports of the emergency landing back on April 14th were concerning but when I read the stories in the media none if it made sense ... an emergency landing for the flu? I chalked it up the media blowing it out of proportion. What I was starting to question was his hairstyle and his appearance. As many have said, he seemed to be recreating the look of his youth with his hair as if he had “come full circle.” What I had noticed was that he seemed to age over the last several years more so than he has at any other time previously. There was one interview I read where the author stated Prince would not sit for a photo shoot but instead gave him “heavily” photo shopped pictures. That bothered me. I kept questioning if perhaps his choice of hairstyle was maybe intended to cover up the possibility that his hair was falling out due to medical reasons and his current hairstyle helped hide it. After all, if it was falling out for just cosmetic reasons he could afford to do something about it?

no signs or premonitions to speak of here. it's weird because i thought the fro, the tour etc was like he was coming full circle but STARTING OVER AGAIN. his death has absolutely crushed me.
