RhoDeo 1616 Re-Ups 54

Hello, Mozart died today, again decades early, clearly an intensely creative life with lots of live performances whilst giving it all takes its toll on the body, even if the mind keeps firing on all cylinders. He was a brilliant multi instrumentalist as well as an obsessive perfectionist. You may find it odd that I considered Prince a reincarnation of Mozart but i've felt this way for a long time and the fact that he too died young is almost confirming my thoughts. It's currently unclear what has been the cause of his death, he was briefly hospitalized last week for a flu emergency  but gave a playing 'acte de presance' last Saturday at a party at his Paisley Park estate. Like Mozart he was a relatively small man with a body that showed nothing much in reserve. He's released 5 albums the last 2 years. In the end I'm afraid his fire burnt too bright.(4 hours sleep a night) and today his flame was extinguished. He leaves the world his wonderful music and apparently there's lots in his vault that hasn't been released, it will be interesting to see who gets to curate all that. Meanwhile his memoirs were planned to be released next year that will likely be sooner know. Feeling rather emotional now, tributes going on, this guy really meant something to me, and not just because he occupies the largest section for one artist in my collection. All of us have been blessed living when he was there for us.

As it happens there was a timely request for a re-up of Prince-go figure

Storage maybe dirt cheap these days -compared to 5 years ago, but the hosts are much more money orientated and look at turnover and notice that keeping data longer than 1 month isn't making them money. Thus the coming months i'm making an effort to re-up, it will satisfy a small number of people which means its likely the update will  expire relatively quickly again as its interest that keeps it live. Nevertheless here's your chance ... asks for re-up in the comments section at the page where the expired link resides....requests are satisfied on a first come first go basis. ...updates will be posted here and yes sign a name to your request and please do it from the page where the link died!

Looka here another batch of 17 re-ups, requests fullfilled up to April 17th ...N' Joy

many thanks rho,

i get the impression prince must have (as we say over here) run himself ragged :(
5 albums in 2 years? 4 hours sleep a night?
definitely a sign that he worked himself to death, maybe?
i know that sound rather 'morbid', but it sounds like the truth :(

rest in peace prince.

Hello Peter He was found slumped to the ground in a sparsely used elevator, he must have had a fatal heart attack whilst going down. If the liftdoors remained open he likely had been found earlier. It's a little unnerving that this great artist died alone in a stationairy elevator, potential help unavailable. Question remains what brought it on...he was seen crying at his last concert..premonition ?
