that sounds like a suicide insinuation to me.

edited to say that i think it sounds like prince insinuated suicide was something he was thinking about. not that the poster here insinuated it. just wanted to clear that up.

This is really sad to hear. He was a really great talent, and not many people knew how good of a guitarist he really was. Here is a video of him with some of the greats, and he blew the place apart with his solo at the end. Crank up the speakers, it will blow you away.

TMZ has the dispatch recordings and they just say male, not breathing. They later add that CPR had been started, presumably by the people who found him. I think if it were a suicide, it would have probably been more violent ???? in which case that would have been mentioned by dispatch. Also, he was in an elevator, which would seem kind of weird for a suicide.

Prince will likely die the way he lived - mysteriously. Can any of his fans honestly say they knew him?

All our Mpls/Stpl news stations are all about Prince - showing Paisley Park, which is where he died in one of the elevators. The park is full of fans. Just can't believe he's gone. There will be an all night remeberance tonight at First Avenue.

I'm waiting to hear what the cause of death was. I'm wondering if it was a heart attack.

They just showed a rainbow over his Paisley Park studio - nice.

I can't believe it.

I'm 20 minutes into finding out.

OMG.

I know he had been ill, even making an emergency detour to Atlanta, iirc, last week. Said it was the flu, I never thought he'd be dead just a few days later.

well, i had no information at the time that i wrote that and i have not been watching tv or listening to the radio this afternoon. so i haven't heard any news updates, and i have not heard any dispatch recordings.

i wasn't saying that i think it was suicide. it just seems weird, "wait for a few days before wasting any prayers on me" well that sounds like an odd thing to say to me.
