Prince fans mark anniversary of music superstar's death

23 April, 2017, 03:22 | Author: Sam Montgomery

Several landmarks, including the Interstate 35W Bridge in Minneapolis, will be bathed in purple lights. Even one year after his unexpected death due to an accidental opioid drug overdose in his Minnesota home, Prince's influence still reverberates.

Questlove shared a short video clip of the late singer during a recording session with the caption, "may we all learn, that ideal consistent practice ... makes satisfaction".

Like all great artists, Prince's music sales soared like a dove after his death.

Prince is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Rolling Stone magazine puts Prince at number 27 on its list of 100 Greatest Artists, "the most influential artists of the rock & roll era".

Quite honestly, "Party [ing] like it's 1999" is mandatory when thinking of his legacy and over the course of four days (festivities kicked off on the 20th), his life and contributions will be honored at Paisley Park, Prince's historic recording sanctuary, which now serves as a museum. He had bodyguards to keep the public away, but for the most part, I think Minnesotans just respected his privacy and left him alone.

Prince's death stunned the entertainment world in 2016, and within minutes of the sad news breaking, tributes poured in from around the world. "Sometimes, I believe Wes doesn't get the credit he deserves, and I'm thrilled that we get to feature him in this video". You don't die of the flu at age 57, especially when you're a celebrity with access to the best doctors money can buy. "But in retrospect, I thought maybe something wasn't right", Day said.

However, Comerica Bank & Trust and Paisley Park Enterprises, which manages Prince's estate, sued to stop the release, claiming it was "violating the terms of [Boxill's] agreement with Prince 'for his personal gain at the expense of the Prince Estate, '" reported The New York Times.

"I always knew Prince was popular, but I had no idea the global reach", he said.
