Very limited info on this in the news. Hints and vague rumors about the flu. It is so rare that healthy people die from the flu that I suspect there is some other health related issue that either caused his death or contributed to it. We will see what comes out in the news in the next few months.

G'day,

I noticed that Obama has already commented on Prince's death, but never said anything when American Music Icon Merle Haggard died. Hmm,

Prince was a jehovah witness and they don't believe in doctors or the meds they tell you to take. He was found in a elevator at paisley park

I'm about the same age and want to know what happened too. A lady wrestler just died the other day at the ripe old age of 45. Juicing maybe. These things come in three's so keep an eye out for the 3rd one.

Hey people die, Some die young and some die old..And you know what were all gonna die some day..
Sometimes your lifestyle on the way to getting old, Will dictate that you will die young......Talent doesn't always mean you have brains... So as long as when you read the obituaries and your name is not there...Ride on.. The other guys worries are over...Why make them yours...??

If you don't wave to them'
They won't wave back to you....
