I figured I would jump on the Prince bandwagon here, as the nonstop media deluge is making it hard for me to focus on much else. As I write, it has been 3 days since Prince was found dead at his home at Paisly Park Chanhassen MN. Im sure we all know the story by now.
In only 3 short days, the media stories are starting to report what I feel are trivial details about Prince’s last days. Sure it’s a big story, and with somebody as famous as Prince, any little bit of information can and will be spun into something that is “news-worthy”.
One story that I found to be grasping at straws, is his shopping list for the Electric Fetus on Record Store Day 4/16/16 , link below.
Apparently Prince bought the following CDs:
1) Stevie Wonder, “Talking Book” 2) Chambers Brothers, “The Time Has Come” 3) Joni Mitchell, “Hejira” 4) Swan Silvertones, “Inspirational Gospel Classics” 5) Missing Persons, “The Best Of Missing Persons” 6) Santana, “Santana IV”
What a scoop! I feel like I know the guy after seeing what “one of his last purchases” was.
Im sure that as time goes by, there will be more details about the last days of Prince that will come to light. Maybe we will finally find out what the last sandwich he ate was, or when he last went to the bathroom?
Whatever happened to letting somebody rest in peace? A cause of death would be an appropriate news story, but these inane details are tiresome.
Just a rant, RIP Prince..
