THE DOVES ARE CRYING…..(PRINCE UPDATE)

How many of us remember this classic from Prince originally released in 1984 on the “Purple Rain” album?   This is one of those songs that has easily stuck in my mind from this legendary artist.  I’ve seen many news reports that show many people riding by his Minneapolis studio.  Fans have also began dropping flowers by the studio as well.  He is certainly music royalty that is now gone………. He was found dead today in an elevator.  Now….HE HAS BEEN ELEVATED TO ANOTHER LEVEL!!!  RIP PRINCE!
TMZ is reporting the following:

“Prince hit up a local pharmacy hours before he died — the 4th time he visited this week — indicating his health was far worse than the simple flu.

TMZ obtained this photo of Prince leaving a Walgreens near his home in Minnesota Wednesday night at around 7 PM.
Prince hit up a local pharmacy hours before he died — the 4th time he visited this week — indicating his health was far worse than the simple flu.

TMZ obtained a photo of Prince leaving a Walgreens near his home in Minnesota Wednesday night at around 7 PM.

Our sources tell us Prince had frequented the Walgreens for years — but last night, people at the store were concerned because he looked much more frail and nervous than usual.

As we previously reported, Prince’s team told the media he was suffering from the flu. It seemed odd, because his private jet had to make an emergency landing in Moline, Illinois last Friday, just 48 minutes from his home.

Prince was hospitalized … but was discharged after only a few hours. Our sources in Moline told us at the time they felt Prince left the hospital way too soon because he was “not doing well” and needed further medical care.

On Saturday, the day after he was released from the hospital, Prince took the stage at a dance party near his home and curiously said, “Wait a few days before you waste any prayers.”

Prince died Thursday morning. Officials are investigating the cause of death.

PRINCE DEAD @57

I was absolutely shocked moments ago when I looked on my computer and saw that the legendary singer PRINCE had died.  I really can recall early in his career, I did not particularly care for his music.  UNTIL…. as a police officer I worked his PURPLE RAIN concert for three nights in a row. This man was nothing less than electric.  I had never seen a performer all over the stage like this man was.  Some of the hits that he is responsible for includes:  “1999”, “Little Red Corvette”, “I Wanna Be Your Lover”,”Do Me Baby”  and many more…. The details of his untimely death are sketchy at this time but as soon as I know more I will give you an update.
