RIP Clare Fischer

The DaBang team are sad to learn of the death of Clare Fischer yesterday, a truly great musician whose orchestral work featured heavily in some of Prince's best songs.

His contributions to many purple classics were priceless, and his longtime collaboration with Prince has been deeply appreciated by fans. Besides working with Prince, he also worked with the likes of Paul McCartney, Robert Palmer and Michael Jackson.

A fully accomplished musician with a long series of albums released by himself since the early 60s to the present day, Fischer will be remembered fondly by Prince fans for his exquisite string arrangements, and creativity.

RIP Clare Fischer.
