CNN : Prince’s sound was as unique and transfixing as he was. He created what became known as the Minneapolis sound, which was a funky blend of pop, synth and new wave.

I am so saddened to hear of Prince's passing. Prince was a revolutionary artist, a wonderful musician and composer. Prince was an original lyricist and a startling guitar player. His talent was limitless. Prince was one of the most unique and exciting artists of the last 30 years. — Mick Jagger (@MickJagger) April 21, 2016

Minnesota Public Radio (US)
Fans, famous mourn Prince’s death
“Today, the world lost a creative icon,” President Barack Obama said in a statement. “Few artists have influenced the sound and trajectory of popular music more distinctly, or touched quite so many people with their talent. He was a virtuoso instrumentalist, a brilliant bandleader, and an electrifying performer.”

    Maybe my age, but I could not in all honesty recall a single song that this guy sang.

      His guitar and instrumental work are legendary, a great technician and improviser.
      Songs, provocations and get-ups well known through 80s architecture (at Auckland and elsewhere globally), she said.

    Prince Saturday Night Live Full Performance 2014 (SNL Host: Chris Rock)
    Farewell to a great musician and artist who has left us too soon. Just one of his many great performances over the years. Instead of doing the usual two songs on SNL, Prince did a single 8 minute set. This is a TRIBUTE post.
