      I wonder/fear what the official cause of death will be. 57 is too young. I was a teenager for the majority of the 80s, so obviously Prince's music (particularly 1999 and Purple Rain) was well-known, even to a metalhead like me.

      Eddie Trunk wondered out loud on Facebook why people rush out to buy records once the artist is dead. If you liked his music, why didn't you own it already? That's the thing about great artists, though, often they are more famous in death than in life.

      I also heard that he has a TON of unreleased songs. I have the feeling he may end up giving Jimi a run for posthumous releases.

      In the FWIW category: my favorite Prince cover is the Hindu Love Gods' (aka Warren Zevon and REM) version of "Raspberry Beret."

      That ain't Lake Minnetonka.
