As you probably know by now, Prince has left us.

Prince's rise to fame occurred during a chaotic period in my life that included service in two branches of the military (with an overseas posting in Turkey and a combat tour in the Gulf), a marriage and divorce, another marriage, and various other dramas. In short, I was out of circulation in one way or another for most of the period from 1984 to 1994, so my memories of pop music during that time generally are pretty scattered.

Still. I remember 'Delirious' and 'Little Red Corvette' from 1982 - '83, in the early, golden years of MTV. 'Purple Rain' was one of the few albums I owned and played constantly. If I look back on that time period, I don't think I can remember any other pop music artist - besides Madonna - that made an impression on me.

So I'm inviting you, dear readers, to share your memories and impressions of Prince in the comments. Some of you may have been coming of age when Prince appeared on the scene, while others may be from different generations. Let me hear from you ... tell me about Prince.
