I am seeing conflicting information on this.

From CNN...

"(CNN)Police are investigating a death at the estate of superstar Prince in Carver County, Minnesota, according to Carver County Sheriff spokesman Jason Kamerud.

"We are not releasing any information regarding the identity of the person who died until next of kin is notified," Kamerud said."

AOL is reporting him dead without a cause other than noting he had an emergency medical procedure 6 days ago and he told fans he was suffering from "flu like symptoms"

My daughter just had an emergency appendectomy a few weeks ago. She's in the clear now, but it is sobering when you realize that such procedures can go terribly wrong.

Read a blind item after the plane emergency about '90's diagnosis of HIV and how religious leaders (Jehovah's Witness) encouraged Prince to believe that he had been miraculously healed, causing him to decide to stop taking meds.

Huffpost reports that someone close to him has confirmed. I'm sad. I like his stuff. Never saw him in concert but I heard he put on a fantastic show.

Well, FoxNews is reporting Prince is dead while CNN is saying there is a death at his estate.

We need more time to know what the hell is going on.

I first real learned of this guy in the spring of 1983. My youngest brother was graduating college and I was hanging out in his off-campus apartment in New Haven and he had a copy of I believe Rolling stones on his coffee table and MTV on the TV. Prince was on MTV and I asked him who is that and he picked up the magazine and said-here read about him. Purple rain came out the next year of course and that is what, IIRC really shot him to the top of the charts.

Too bad-while I wasn't a big fan, the guy just oozed talent. He could play just about any instrument well.

Ummmm....ok?

I'm just thinking that most younger people probably have no idea who this guy is. Hell, this guy was already effectively out of the spot light before I was all that old.

How's that rock you live under?

Check the spelling again - "whose" Prince - perhaps the poster thought it was someone of royalty, not the musician, and so reasonably asked "whose" as in which country.

Or, then again, maybe he was just being a jerk.

While it was the MTV golden years that were his peak years he certainly remained active until recently. He's clearly one of the more important artists of the last 40 years

I can understand that. I'm not necessarily a fan of Prince, I've listened to some of his music but it just isn't my thing, y'know? I'm just shocked that he's dead because it wasn't too long ago that I watched a video about Kevin Smith talking about how ****ing insane Prince was.

His plane had to make an emergency landing in Moline a few weeks ago and rush him to the hospital for a "cold" but something about that sounded fishy at the time.
