The music world is in shock at the death of Prince at 57.

The icon was found unresponsive Thursday morning inside an elevator at his Paisley Park Studios.  According to TMZ, Prince was treated for drug overdose six days before his death.

Paramedics tried to revive him but he was pronounced dead shortly after deputies responded at his Paisley Park Studios -- the place where he recorded decades of music blending rock and R&B and sex like no one ever before.

"To know that he won't be here anymore it almost like it seems like its the end of a musical legacy," said Madd Hatta host of a morning radio show on 97.9 the Box in Houston.

Fans wiped out music stores for any Prince vinyl they could get.

Even President Obama said nobody's spirit was stronger, bolder, or more creative calling him a creative icon.

Icon he was. The singer, producer, arranger and composer won seven Grammys and had seven multi-platinum albums.

1984`s Purple Rain soundtrack sold thirteen million copies.

If you're not a music enthusiast you may remember him for one of the greatest super bowl performances of all time.

While Prince' s death is under investigation, he canceled a concert in Atlanta this month because he wasn't feeling well.

A week later, he  performed in Atlanta but during the ride back home his plane made an emergency landing and he was reportedly was rushed to a hospital in Illinois.
