The 57 years old artist was found dead at his home in Paisley Park in Minnesota, the multifunctional center wanted and created by the same King of pop in the years ‘ 80, after the success of the song Purple Rain.
Just a few days ago, on April 15th the star had an illness that forced him to an emergency shelter with emergency landing in Illinois of his private jet.
His health had been declared “a medical emergency” but he was discharged within a few hours.
So the music world mourns the loss of another great artist, whose eccentricities prompted him to change many names including the famous: “The Artist Formerly Known as…””.
