(CNN)Prince, who defined the sound of the '80s with songs such as "Kiss" and "Purple Rain" and defied the music industry in a fight for creative freedom, died Thursday.

The 57-year-old singer was found unresponsive in an elevator at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota, Carver County Sheriff Jim Olson said.
Paramedics tried to perform CPR but were unable to revive him, the sheriff said. He was pronounced dead at 10:07 a.m., less than 30 minutes after sheriff's deputies responded to a medical call at the scene.



Today we lost a talented singer and song writer.

I wasn't a fan of everything he did, but his genius was undeniable.


Man, these last few months been rough on musicians: Bowie, Glen Frey, Lemmy...now this.



Whatever it was...I didn't do it!

Yes, Prince was not my "cup of tea" either.  He was sort of strange...but he was probably one of the best guitarist around.
