    Prince and all his people, were heavy influence in my young straight days. When I turned 21, mid 80's and those nights at the local titty bar strip clubs. The last movie I ever saw at a drive in was Purple Rain (84) icon_lol.gif

    For straight guys, Vanity and Apollonia were the 80's goddesses. Interesting story about both of these ladies, after there sexy, sexual songs of the 80's, they are both are devout Christians, they turned to religion once out of the music scene.

    More accurately they swapped the crutch of drugs for the crutch of religion. Not saying that's necessarily a bad thing. Just is what it is.

    That was a fun time in music. Look that they do not have headsets and most likely where not lipsinking. They actually sang, like that matters anymore. I met her once in Oakland and she was extremely nice. We talked for 30 minutes and she was just nice. Smart. Great background in music. Not a huge voice but a great talent. So sad.

    Music legend Prince found dead at 57 at Paisley Park
    http://www.startribune.com/authorities-investigating-death-at-prince-s-paisley-park/376578441/#1


    Authorities were called to Prince's Paisley Park in Chanhassen shortly after 9:30 a.m. Thursday on a report of a "a male down not breathing."


    Legendary Minnesota pop musician Prince, widely hailed as a versatile musical genius, was found dead Thursday morning at his Paisley Park recording studio complex in Chanhassen. He was 57.

    Immediately upon hearing the news, mourners began lining up with flowers and stuffed animals outside the studio on Audubon Road, some sobbing and embracing. Shocked condolences flooded social media. Lawmakers paused for a moment of silence at a state legislative hearing.

    Fans touched a star bearing his name painted on the First Avenue music club in downtown Minneapolis, the “Purple Rain” site where he played often early in his career.

    “Our hearts are broken,” First Avenue said on Facebook. “Prince was the Patron Saint of First Avenue. He grew up on this stage, and then commanded it, and he united our city. It is difficult to put into words the impact his death will have on the entire music community, and the world. As the tragic news sinks in, our thoughts are with Prince’s family, friends, and fans.”

    At the club, where Prince not only filmed “Purple Rain” but recorded the song of the same name and several more in concert, the singer’s influence on other musicians was still apparent on a daily basis. He was so closely tied to the club, many fans believed (erroneously) that he owned it.

    'We used to love each other deeply': Prince dedicates songs to ex-girlfriend Denise Matthews, aka Vanity, after learning of her death shortly before Melbourne concert 16 February 2016
    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-3449282/Prince-dedicates-songs-ex-girlfriend-Denise-Matthews-aka-Vanity-learning-death-shortly-Melbourne-concertconcert.html


    During the first leg of his Australian tour, Prince dedicated a medley of Little Red Corvette and Dirty Mind to the late-singer, whom he dated for several years in the '80s.
    The Herald Sun reported him saying: 'Someone dear to us has passed away, I’m gonna dedicate this song to her.'
    He also changed the lyrics to The Ladder to describe his relationship with Vanity and, for an encore, replaced the final words of The Beautiful Ones, 'my knees', with 'Denise'.

    Later, the Purple Rain star was remarkably candid about his memories of Denise, saying: 'Her and I used to love each other deeply.'
    He continued: 'She loved me for the artist I was, I loved her for the artist she was trying to be.'
    In her 1997 book, Blame It On Vanity, Denise claimed that Prince was the only man she ever truly loved, Jet Magazine reported.
    They first met at the 1980 American Music Awards and Prince later asked her to be the lead singer of Vanity 6, a band known for their sexually explicit lyrics.
    The pop power couple later famously posed for the cover of Rolling Stone magazine together in April 1983.
