“The news hit especially hard here in Minnesota yesterday. I doubt there’s a Minnesotan who hasn’t at one time or another driven past the Paisley Park Studio as it isn’t hidden behind walls or trees but sits right next to a busy highway. A familiar edifice seen by scores of commuters daily.
Most of us know someone who has been graced by an impromptu performance by his purple highness, and wished that just once, it would be us. I know I did, and how many wished they could be “Purified in the waters of Lake Minnetonka” after watching Purple Rain. He put Minneapolis on the map in a big way and he is very special to those of us who also call this place home.”
