Thank you for letting us read your new foreward, Alex and Laura. It's great that you two are making the writing and research of the book a shared experience with us...

Foreword surprisingly upbeat. Will the rest of the book continue in same vein? boxed

Looking forward to it! I just finished Possessed, that was a good read and I learned so much about his life, music and dealings in the music business.

Thanks for the update, Alex. You mentioned there would be a couple of volumes - I can imagine that you can't pack the life he lived into one book. Well, you could....but it would take a forklift to read it wink

It will be interesting to know how this will be any different to any other Prince book, past, present and future.

.

At the moment, we are being swamped with notice of so many people creating books, so why would we choose yours over another?

.

Thank you!

No matter how many are thrown out there, we are never going to get a definitive book until someone spills the beans on Prince's final years and the truth behind the death, as well as the dust settling regarding the estate and the final outcome of everything. So surely, nothing can be written yet, that has not already been said?

Thanks very much! We are writing this book at a much greater level of granularity than Possessed (as well as with a different approach overall). The granularity brings with it length. So indeed, this will be a volume that covers a discrete part of Prince's life -- in effect the "origins story." Depending on how this goes, other volumes are a strong possibility. My interest is in finding new things to explore. Inevitably, there will be some crossover with Possessed (and other books, for that matter), but if there isn't something new to say, that's of less interest to me. But with that said, people are approaching us with a fair amount of new information on any number of topics.

Very humbling, thank you. I found it fairly emotional to write, especially the last passage.

thanks very much. It felt appropriate and natural to me given the parallels between Prince and Hendrix, not to mention the recurrence of the words "rain" and "dream" throughout Prince's canon.
