Legendary musician, Prince has passed away. He was found dead today at his recording studio. The singer, real name Prince Rogers Nelson was hospitalised after his jet made an emergency landing on Friday morning.
A spokesperson later said he was suffering from the flu prior to the performance and that the plane landed at Moline so he could receive treatment there. Prince later flew on and returned home only to face this tragic day.
Born in Minneapolis, Prince became a pop icon in the late 1970s with the hits “Wanna Be Your Lover”, cementing his cult status with such albums as 1999 and Purple Rain. He is one of the most endearing talents of the past four decades and will be sorely missed.
