In Memoriam

Prince Rogers Nelson

7 June 1958 - 21 April 2016

'Sometimes I wish that life was never ending
But all good things, they say, never last.'

The PrinceVault Team is profoundly saddened by the death of Prince. Our thoughts go to his family and friends, but also to each and everyone of you, the anonymous fan, who loved his music and attended his concerts.
