Prince dead at age 57

Prince, one of America’s most influential and enigmatic rock musicians, has died, his publicist told NBC News.

The Wednesday afternoon announcement came a few hours after authorities in Carver County, Minnesota, responded to Prince’s Paisley Park estate in the town of Chanhassen.

The 57-year-old “Purple Rain” artist’s death came a week after his tour plane made an emergency landing in Illinois, where he was hospitalized with what was described as the flu. That illness followed his cancelling a pair of concerts in Atlanta.
