Music Monday! Prince: 1999

I remember when this song came out and I thought 1999 was so far away. 1999 has come and gone and sadly, so has Prince. The final autopsy report isn’t out, but rumors are that Prince died of an opiate overdose. His overdose may not have been heroin either. Reportedly he was prescribed pain medications for pain in his hips. Using pain medications as prescribed usually isn’t dangerous, but no one knows if they carry the gene for addiction. At one time or another we all get prescribed a short acting opiate pain medication. Be careful and talk with your doctor about other pain control options when possible and appropriate.

Sorry I got a little preachy there. Have a great Monday! ~Phil
