The coverage of the beloved musician Prince’s death has run the gamut from laudatory to heartrending with just about everyone weighing to express some deep connection to the artist, who passed away at the age of 57 on Thursday.

Through the outpouring, one commentator’s feelings on the “Raspberry Beret” singer’s loss has echoed louder than just about anyone else’s. Wolf Blitzer, CNN pundit, expressed his grief by referencing a lesser known track from Prince’s extensive catalogue: the famed “Purple Haze.”

“He’s been so active over all of these years – writing music, performing, soundtracks for these motion pictures,”Blitzer said. “All of us of course remember Purple Haze, and what that did for the world of music.”

Of course, the song, which was the opening track on The Jimi Hendrix Experience’s album Are You Experienced, was in fact not written by Prince at all. Blitzer likely mistook the actual Prince song Purple Rain for the Hendrix work, leading to the gaff.

While Blitzer’s flub did lend a bit of levity to the coverage of Prince’s untimely death, tributes continue to be made the world over.

I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon. Cheers!?

    First of all I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that
    I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my
    thoughts out. I do take pleasure in writing but it
    just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?
