The Death Of Prince: One Year Later

The six people at the death scene included Andrew Kornfeld, who arrived in Minneapolis that day to assess Prince for a drug dependency programme at the outpatient clinic, Recovery Without Walls, run by his father Dr. Howard Kornfeld.

The legendary music icon died one year ago today on April 21 2016 from an accidental opioid overdose, and a batch of new images have emerged showing Prince in an intimate light.

Questlove shared a short video clip of the late singer during a recording session with the caption, "may we all learn, that ideal consistent practice ... makes satisfaction". Not surprisingly, the majority of these sales - we're talking $5.65 million worth - came right after his death, where fans mourned by flocking to his catalog.

At Paisley Park a number of shows are taking place from artists including his own bands The Revolution, and the New Power Generation, as well as Morris Day and the Time.

All of his greatest hits were streamed 17 million times in just one week on the various streaming sites - "Purple Rain" alone reached more than 1 million hits.

One year to the day after the music world lost iconic R&B pioneer Prince on April 21, 2017, the Young Fables have a special video to share: They're premiering a studio performance of their cover of "Purple Rain" exclusively for readers of The Boot. Prince asked the Amsterdam crowd to sing along and the Paisley Park audience followed suit.




When police later checked a database used to monitor who is getting prescriptions for controlled substances, they found no record of Prince.

A memorial street party outside the club is also scheduled for Saturday.

Prince's "Purple Rain" costume - purple jacket, white ruffled shirt and studded trousers - was put out for display at the Minnesota History Center in St. Paul through Sunday.

The estate's lawsuit said Boxill signed a 2004 confidentiality agreement that the recordings would remain Prince's sole property.

Several landmarks in Minneapolis will be lit up in Prince purple, including U.S. Bank Stadium, Target Field, the IDS Center, and the Interstate 35W and Lowry Avenue bridges over the Mississippi River.
