The singer Prince has been found dead in his house in the USA (Minnesota, we believe), aged 57, after coming out of hospital after being treated for serious flu-like symptoms. What with Bowie having passed away earlier this year, 2016 is sadly lining up to be a signature year for the passing of musical greats.

Singer Prince dies aged 61.

Singer Prince dies aged 57.

Prince was regarded as the pioneer of Minneapolis sound. His music combined rock, R&B, soul, funk, hip hop, disco, psychedelia, jazz, and pop. Some of our particular favourites include Sign-O’-the-Times and Purple Rain … we weren’t the only ones, either; Prince Rogers Nelson sold over 100 million records during his great career. Now cut short far too early.

    Prince was 57, not 61. He’d been battling flu, and cancelled a couple of shows because of it.
