Slipknot's Corey Taylor Tributes Prince With Purple Rain Performance

(TeamRock Radio) Prince has received tributes from all corners of the rock world after his death at the age of 57 Thursday night. Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor, who was performing in Minnesota last night, began his solo show with classic Prince track Purple Rain, then pointed to the sky at the end and stood in silence for some moments before continuing his show.

He was found unresponsive at his Paisley Park home and studio in Minnesota, and pronounced dead by emergency services. The cause of his passing has not been confirmed, although he'd recently been receiving medical attention.

While fans gathered outside Paisley Park, a rainbow was seen to appear above the premises. Prince's sister Tyka Nelson thanked supporters for turning out, saying: "He loved all of you - thank you for loving him back." Watch Taylor's tribute and read more tributes here.
