MSNBC reporting coroner conducting autopsy tomorrow. If under treatment for AIDS, or known to be quite ill with AIDS after previously having undergone treatment, generally a treating doctor is available to sign a death certificate, and there would be no autopsy.

If that is the case it changes nothing. Drug addiction is as insidious a disease as anything. It only makes me sad that there are people out there who will undoubtedly use it to denigrate him. As if it somehow makes him lesser.

Yup, how he died is moot, don’t/won’t mean a thing (to most) to me. Won't change a thing, he was human. A brief encounter & his music bring back great memories for me. Always singing along when his music comes on Razz Watching him play the guitar, was sheer artistry. Truly a musical treasure that Minnesota shared with the world. Back in college in the 80’s, the bars final song of the night 80% of the time was Purple Reign Laughing His music will live on till the end of time.

So, I went to the all-night memorial at First Avenue last night and it was one of the most amazing events I have ever been to. I got there at about 8pm or so and it had already turned into a block party bathed in purple light cast off by Mayo Clinic Square. It stretched into the shadow of the Target Center. There were thousands upon thousands of people there. The music was top-notch, a veritable who's who of the vibrant local music scene, all covering Prince's works.

The wife and I were among the lucky few who were able to get into First Avenue for the party, and that was beyond crazy. We left at about 5am and it was still going strong. It was a night I will remember for the rest of my life.

I snapped a few pictures, but the ones that MPR took are much better than any of mine, so I will just post them here:

Favorite Prince songs:

1. Purple Rain.

2. Let's Go Crazy

3. I Would Die 4 U

4. Kiss

5. Savior

6. When Doves Cry

7. The Beautiful Ones

8. I Wanna Be Your Lover

9. Darling Nikki

10. Diamonds and Pearls

And a special mention of "Nothing Compares 2 U". He wrote it for Sinead O'Conner, but I he covered it a few times in concerts that I went to. Not sure if he ever released an official cover or not. But when he sang it, U knew it was his song.

I don't consider myself a Prince aficionado. I just know he basically put Minneapolis on the music and pop culture map. I like pop myself, so his material from about 1983-1987 hit the sweet spot for me. I consider Raspberry Beret to be one of his catchiest songs. I really like Kiss. I like the whole Purple Rain album. Trying to rank the songs is pretty meaningless to me. I could love one song in a certain moment or circumstance and then it could change to something else later.

Prince's piano cover of David Bowie's "Heroes" was quite good as well... too bad there isn't a full video of it. Now that 15 second clip is all that will ever exist. Confused I'm sure more people now wish they defied the no-video policy at his concerts over the years.. I just saw him in Oakland last month.

I put up video of his last concert in Target Center on YouTube, and that was taken down quickly. That was about 9 years ago. Maybe things will loosen up in that regard. I hope so.

TMZ is now reporting that Prince was treated for percocet OD in his ER visit, not dehydration as first reported.
