AFP

Pop icon Prince -- whose pioneering brand of danceable funk made him one of music's most influential figures -- died yesterday at his compound in Minnesota, reports AFP.  He was 57. The announcement came just a week after the Grammy and Oscar winner was taken to hospital with a bad bout of influenza. "It is with profound sadness that I am confirming that the legendary, iconic performer, Prince Rogers Nelson, has died at his Paisley Park residence this morning," said his spokeswoman, Yvette Noel-Schure. She did not offer further details. Local authorities outside Minneapolis said that they were investigating a death at Paisley Park.Prince became an international sensation in the 1980s, when he popularized the Minneapolis sound of danceable funk, incorporating rock elements. His 1984 album "Purple Rain" is often described as one of the greatest of all time.
