Musician Prince Dead at 57

Hosted by

Prince Rogers Nelson, better known as Prince and the visionary behind the film Purple Rain, died today at the age of 57. One of the most iconic and talented artists in music history, Prince passed away at his studio, part of a large estate in a suburb of Minneapolis. He sold more than a 100 million records, won multiple Grammies and an Oscar, and he was a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He’d been hospitalized last week, after his plane was forced to land in Moline, Illinois, to treat what was described as a bad case of the flu. Tim Molloy, deputy managing editor of The Wrap, which covers the business of entertainment, has a remembrance.
