Prince Rogers Nelson (June 7, 1958 – April 21, 2016)
2016 has delivered several blows already and this one is also mighty. Prince was renowned as an innovator and was widely known for his eclectic work, flamboyant stage presence, and wide vocal range. He was widely regarded as the pioneer of Minneapolis sound. His music combined rock, R&B, soul, funk, hip hop, disco, psychedelia, jazz, and pop. His catalogue of songs contains many anthems of their era, with a whole back catalogue that he never released. His skills as a song writer meant that there are many tracks he gave to other artists. Despite being commercially successful, Prince guarded his rights fastidiously, even suing fans for uploading his work on to Facebook. He never sold out to the corporate part of the mucisc industry. His influence on modern music will continue for many decades to come.
