Prince and I became lifelong friends nearly 40 years ago and through the years, I have been given a unique insight into what the legendary musician wasn’t really like. Like so many of his worldwide fans, I will never forget seeing something on the internet about the death of this multi-talented Prince formerly known as Artist.
A quick look at Wikipedia confirmed my worst fears that the flamboyant icon had finally gone. Nothing compared to the unbelievable wave of grief at the loss of such a unique singer-songwriter whose genre-defying reputation included an intoxicating mix of musical styles, including R&B, funk, soul, gospel, rock, jazz-fusion, rap, psychedelia, hip-hop (We get the picture – Ed).
But the music lives on and nothing can destroy Prince’s unforgettable album tracks – particularly the classic hits ‘Purple Haze’ and ‘When Doves Sweat’. (That’s enough Prince – Ed.)
