If you were anywhere between, say, 12 and 40 in the 1980s, Prince probably had an impact on you. What a depressing reminder of our mortality— Pat Forde (@YahooForde) April 21, 2016
When you went to a Prince concert, he had you partying until you couldn't party any more.— Earvin Magic Johnson (@MagicJohnson) April 21, 2016
