We are losing legends left and right sad to say that legendary, grammy award winning Prince Rogers Nelson known to all music fans as Prince has died. TMZ, the bearer/confirmer of death news, broke the story and Prince’s publicist confirmed it; he was found in an elevator at his Paisley Park compound Thursday morning and they were unable to revive him. He was 57. It was just last week, his plane had to make an emergency landing in Moline, Illinois to be treated for what they called a bad case of the flu at the time.
The last time Prince played in Chicago was at City Winery and it was right after performing at Mellody Hobson and George Lucas’ Promontory Park wedding reception in 2013 which Barry Brecheisen was shooting for Vogue magazine that night.
