two too-sooners, part two

prince joins amy winehouse in the state we call death. it is comforting to imagine that in their shared state they are making collaborative music together.


both pushed the innovation envelope. both had to ignore some realities, and both paid the final price for that.


we who are left are left with their music. if it inspires us–and it has, especially among supremely talented musicians–they do not utterly die.
