Listening to Prince's funniest moments on youtube and any new books about Prince?

I haven't heard Princes' voice in a long time and something made me want to go on youtube and hear him. I recently ordered Matyes' book and waiting for it to arrive. I can't wait to read it. Has anyone read any really good Prince books lately that you would recommend?

This chronicles the time before the after Purple Rain fans( rolleyes ) came along. It's EXCELLENT!

The Mayte book is a page turner. U will enjoy it.

DEFINITELY the pictures. It was so shocking to me to find out that Prince took SO MANY back then. I was under the impression he didn't like taking pictures back then. This book is my ABSOLUTE favorite out of all so far. Allen could have charged a lot more if he wanted to. It was so beautifully well done. I would have easilly paid $100.

Have you read Alan Light's book on the making of Purple Rain? - not brand new, as it was published in 2014 for the 30 yr anniversary of the film/tour. He's a good writer and has been a Prince fan since Dirty Mind. He attended the PR show as well. Great read.

Two YT video suggestions if you haven't already watched them - Prince on Larry King Live in 1999, and Prince interviewed by Kurt Loder on MTV in 1999.

*

And for something really funny...his CBS This Morning interview in 1998 where he pulls out a thin white cracker and starts eating it while the reporter is reciting his lyrics back to him lol Really friggin' hilarious!!
