...speaking as an RN, there's not enough clear cut information yet released to make any kind of informed comment....the "flu-like" symptoms is so vague as to be ridiculous....it had to be something more serious, if it caused his plane to make an emergency landing recently.....only time will tell....forget what the rumor mill says....

Last week, his plane made an emergency landing so that he could be rushed to the hospital to get treated for what was called the "flu" even though he was only 48 minutes away from his destination.
5 days ago, he appeared at a dance party, looking healthy, saying "Reports of my death are premature."
Now this.

KRF is going to be so sad! OH NO! RIP. Kingricefan showed that clip that made me realize he was more of a guitar player than I had ever realized. I am so sorry.
I am devastated. There are no words, only tears. He's been in my life for such a long time. He was my God, he was everything to me.

Solo
By Prince
So low, the curb looks like a skyscraper
So high, the stars are under me
So quiet, I can hear the blood rushing through my veins
So low, I feel like I'm going insane
The angels, they watch in wonder
When you made love to me
Through the rain and the thunder
You cried in ecstasy

And you were so kind
I felt sorry for all creation
Because at the time, no one was lucky
No 1 was lucky, no he was lucky as me

And now you're gone and I just want to be still
So silent, I'll just let my senses sleep

It's gonna be so hard to hear my voice
If I ever learn once more to speak

I'm so lost, no one can find me
And I've been looking for so long
But now I'm done
I'm so low, solo, my name is No One

Songwriters: DAVID HENRY HWANG, PRINCE ROGERS NELSON

Haven't been here much lately. Earlier today while driving, I saw three license plates almost in a row - first one started with the letters RHIA and I immediately thought of Rhea of the Coos and thought about the SKMB and all of the people I care about here. Next two plates I noticed ended in AKE and I thought about Oy and then thought about this board yet again.

A few minutes later, I heard on the radio that Prince had passed away. My first thought was of kingricefan and how devastated he must be. I adore you, KRF and am so heartbroken for the loss you are experiencing. I know how much his music means to you and has meant to you for a very long time. I'm holding you close to my heart. I also pray for Prince's friends and family. Way too much loss - my heart is extremely heavy for all who are suffering.

And an underrated guitarist.
Not half! He was so good he make guitars disappear. Check out this solo from while my guitar gently weeps from the rock n roll Hall of Fame, featuring George Harrison's son and Tom petty amongst others, and if you can, tell me where his guitar went.

How many giants can we lose in such a short period of time? Very sad.

As to cause of death... he is gone from a pathology process. Jim Henson died of an acute pneumonia episode. None of us know how long we're here or what will lift us from this sod. What's left is for us to grieve and revel in the memories.

And speaking of memories: That clip of "Guitar Gently Weeps" was epic, The Nameless. Thank you.

Niagara Falls in Canada is lit purple for the Queen's birthday and now in memory of Prince, as well.

Staro, did they really say it was also in memory of Prince? Oh, that is so wonderful. I saw a short clip of the celebration and tears being shed outside of the First Avenue club in Minneapolis tonight. They cordoned off the streets and have big speakers outside blasting away with Prince songs. I am so touched by the love being shown for this small man with the huge talents.
