‘He’s so much a part of us in Minnesota’: Fans gather at Paisley Park, crying, dressed in purple

CHANHASSEN, MINN. — As soon as Kevin Lucken heard the news, he cleared his afternoon and drove to Paisley Park to honor the life and death of his favorite musician. Hooked on Prince since the fifth grade, Lucken guessed he had been inside the famed recording studio more than 100 times to see Prince perform. Over the years, he discovered a community there that was unmatched anywhere else in his life.

“It’s the one place I’ve gone where everybody has a mutual love for being there,” said Lucken, 42, who paused occasionally to wipe away tears and catch his breath. “From a very young age, I respected this man so much who was willing to say what everyone else was too afraid to say.”
