If you ignore the flu, it can be deadly. However we still don't have confirmation of the cause of death.

Well, he was pretty well known to be pretty odd - a bit like Michael Jackson. He may have gotten pneumonia and felt that crystals and candles would cure him - no need for doctors.

Anyway, he was one of the most understated talents of his generation. I think he was far, far more talented than Michael Jackson, for example, but for some reason he did not want to put it all out there. He was a prodigious guitar player, but very rarely did you ever see him show it. He just seemed to hold back a lot, and I never understood why.

Are we sure this isn't just a plan to rename himself yet again... "The formerly living artist known as Prince"?

joking aside, this is a sad day for music... besides the performer he was, he has written far more top hits than anyone.

I know 3 people that were at his concert here in Toronto very recently... one is in shock and had to leave work early over this.

Flu can be deadly to otherwise healthy people. It's a NASTY virus and it can put people into multiorgan failure. When I was in medical school I watched a 17yo girl wind up on ECMO (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation...basically heart/lung replacement, the most invasive form of life support possible) because of influenza. This sort of thing is rare, but it certainly can happen.

In the 2013/2014 flu season, 95% of people who died from influenza and complications thereof were not vaccinated.

Hmmmmm... There may be a silver lining to this [Prince's death], then. I'm not anti-vaccine (had my MMR shots, etc.) but re: the flu vaccine each year I always say, "I'm just not feeling it. I take a lot of Vitamin C."

If it killed Prince at 57, I might be singing a different tune next season.

Maybe others will, too.

Vitamin C is of zero benefit in influenza. Flu vaccine is of some benefit. You will still get sick with something, whether it's norovirus or the common cold. You may even get influenza, but it will be a shorter, milder disease.

Alber, probably some kind of concierge Doctor. Prince did not keep a large entourage. He was big but he wasn't Elvis or Michael. In time it will come out.

Seb146, you are right. if it moves you, play his music. Turning on most stations in the country would do the trick tonight.

Especially with someone so young. Chyna from WWE and Patty Duke and Prince were all young, IMO. So, I have to check multiple sources just to be sure. But, Doris Roberts, who was 90, is not that out of the question. Even if a story about someone like Matt Damon or one of the Jonas brothers dying, I would have to check a few sources just because they are so young.

Is he now known as the former artist formerly known as formerly known as Prince?

I actually had to remind myself what his songs were. It was not my kind of music, but he was undoubtedly a proper musician, which should be appreciated in this age where most can't even play an instrument.

Just been listening to one fan on the radio who said he has enough unreleased material to last for years. What was holding him back? He was one of those artists who I had just thought had faded away, which is a shame as he really stood head and shoulders above his contemporaries. He recorded some class tracks, all of his stuff is very easy to listen to, without being easy listening.

He was known to be a very reserved and private person, this obviously translated into his music. As mentioned above, he was a absolute beast of a guitarist... IMHO on of the greatest guitarists there was... but he just didn't put it out there, his songs were so wonderfully written that they didn't need amazing guitar pieces to make them great.

Funny story about him. When he was playing in Dublin a few years ago he decided to go to a gig in a famous Dublin club (if memory serves correct it was Whelans). A very close friend of mine was the sound engineer at the gig that he went to see that night. Myself and my friend used to work for a guy to ran gigs around Dublin and despite being a qualified sound engineer I didn't do much sound work and mainly performed instead with a number of different acts. I work in a very different industry now, as my profile will note.

Anyway, turns out that Prince was looking for a guitar tech to finish out the tour and got talking to my friend after the gig, who ended up being asked if he wanted the gig. Needless to say he said hell yeah and off he went with Prince around the world as his guitar tech. He has some amazing photos of the experience, including some from his house in Paisley Park.

Funny, I don't actually remember him playing in Dublin, but one guy on the radio this morning talked about him doing a a gig in the Pod. He said he managed to get into a sound check, and where other artists would do a sound check in an hour, it could take Prince four hours, he was that much of a perfectionist. Between that and two gigs, he managed to see Prince three times in the one night, so maybe Whelans was the other one.

It could have been the Pod where my friend met him (he's an engineer and you mention soundchecks so it adds up), It was several years ago and wasn't there myself, hence the sketchy details.

The Pics on my friends Facebook page are dated 2011, he played Malahide that summer. The POD could well have been the gig and not Whelans.

Prince seemed like Lenny Kravitz or Elvis mixed with Michael Jackson. Some of his outfits seemed to follow MJ.

But Prince for most part kept out of negative headline and lawsuits that dogged MJ.

For a brief time he was known as a symbol

Usually means the artist didn't think the material was good enough for release, but the people that could profit from it think otherwise.

Variety is reporting that overdose may be the cause. Indicated the medical emergency in flight diversion to Moline was not for the flu.
http://variety.com/2016/biz/news/pri...ainkiller-before-death-1201758980/

I guess I would wonder about the authenticity of the report. I would not claim to be a doctor but would think it would be pretty hard to get back out of the hospital and back in flight in 3 hours according to previous reports.
