Fans still mourn­ing the sud­den death of mu­sic leg­end Prince can cel­e­brate the pur­ple one on­line with the launch of a new website. Princeon­line mu­seum.com is an ar­chive of his web­sites from over the last 20 years. Not just a mu­si­cal pi­o­neer, the Al­pha­bet Street sen­sa­tion also paved the way in on­line mu­sic as one of the first artists to make his mu­sic avail­able to down­load di­rect from his own plat­form. Sam Jen­nings, di­rec­tor of the Prince On­line Mu­seum, said: “Over 20 years on­line, Prince launched nearly 20 dif­fer­ent web­sites, main­tained a dozen dif­fer­ent so­cial me­dia pres­ences, par­tic­i­pated in count­less on­line chats and di­rectly con­nected with fans around the world. This Mu­seum is an ar­chive of that and a re­minder of ev­ery­thing he ac­com­plished as an in­de­pen­dent artist.” princeon­line­mu­seum.com
