All Eyes photo gallery: A look back at music superstar Prince through the decades
Pop superstar Prince, widely acclaimed as one of the most inventive and influential musicians of his era with hits including Little Red Corvette, Let's Go Crazy and When Doves Cry, was found dead at his home on Thursday in suburban Minneapolis, the Associated Press reports. He was 57.
The singer, songwriter, arranger and instrumentalist broke through in the late 1970s with the hits Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad? and I Wanna Be Your Lover, and soared over the following decade with such albums as 1999 and Purple Rain. The title song from 1999 includes one of the most widely quoted refrains of popular culture: “Tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999."
