The story at the end about Prince being excited about taking a walk down the street in NYC without security or in a limo...I thought that was quite moving.

Latin thank you for this beautiful article. It was nice to see that Prince in his later years was enjoying something as simple as a walk in New York City. I was moved when I read the part about him smiling and being himself on that walk. Fame hit so early for Prince and I can only image the crazyness through the years whenever he went to do something and people would not leave him alone.

Nice read. Prince was definitely into taking photos. Love it that Shahidi gave him a camera. It must have been hard to find a good present for Prince. cool

Kick the old-school joints. For the true funk soldiers.

I was thinking the same thing the other day

BookTrib: How did Beyonce come to write the foreword?

"Lastly, and probably most importantly, I wanted someone who had reach with the younger generations, not to sell more books, but to bring attention to Prince so they will, hopefully, be turned on by his brilliance and to continue his legacy."

He gets it.

I received an email this morning from amazon saying delivery is delayed until November 15th, anyone else got this? Are there problems with the book?

I just checked. No such email and my order still says it will arrive Oct 24.
.
Did you order recently? Are you in the US.
I'm wondering if they have to do a second printing to fulfill demand. If so, that's good news for Afshin.

.
When I ordered Steve Parke's boik, I was one of the first BUT mine was one of the last to be shipped.
.
I'm concerned about a delay on this one because we move to our winter location in two weeks.
.

I ordered it back in March when it was announced and buying it from the UK, just checked my orders on Amazon and it confirms a delivery date of 15th Nov 17.

The pre-order price is a little cheaper than the current order price, so possibly I've been put to the back of the queue whilst they fulfill the higher priced orders? Don't know if it works this way but that would suck if so.

Hoping it's a temporary glitch and it reverts back to a delivery date of 24th Oct, as I'm looking forward to this one.

Afshin Was interviewed on Good Morning America this morning. Towards the end of the interview when he talked about finding out Prince had passed he broke down and got tears-eyed. sad
