2016 has been a very unkind year to music fans: many legendary performers passed away, including Keith Emerson (Emerson, Lake and Palmer), Lemmy Kilmister (Motorhead), the great David Bowie and last but not least, iconic Minneapolis performer Prince.
Prince was a skilled multi-instrumentalist: a piano and guitar virtuoso and he could easily play the drums and many other instruments. He had a thirst for music and he would record and play constantly, at a rate few other artists would be able to sustain. Shortly after his death, representatives of Prince's estate managed to open his valued secret recording vaults, featuring a massive amount of unreleased material. So massive in fact, that it has been estimated that all this music could yield a full album every year…for the next century.
This means that there are thousands of previously unheard songs and hundreds of hours of "new" music from this influential genius which are yet to be heard by public hears.
