Rest in purple

Prince died yesterday. He was 57. This is believed to be one of the last photos of him. He liked to ride his bike. 
I know this is a stupid, little, ranty, bicycle page, but his passing affects me, and probably a lot of you.
The TV news people keep saying that he 'crossed genres'.
I respectfully disagree.
Prince's music is a purple thread, woven into the very fabric of who we are. It did not cross genre. It is it's OWN genre.

When asked what it was like to be the best guitar player alive, Eric Clapton responded, "I don't know...ask Prince..."

Rest In Purple, Prince Nelson Rogers.
And thank you...
