The one and only Prince Rogers Nelson passed away on April 21, 2016, much to the shock and chagrin of the world. Prince had been battling health issues and played his last concert in Atlanta, GA just days prior to his untimely death. Prince was a trailblazer in many regards and faced-off against corporate record companies when many would not. A musical genius, Prince played at least 27 instruments that we know of. According to the For You album liner notes, Prince wrote, produced, arranged, composed, and played all 27 instruments on the recording, except for the song “Soft and Wet”, whose lyrics were co-written by Moon. Check out how fans are remembering him below:
