That could have been an album cover easily.

Yeah, we'll, we'll try to imagine what silence looks like.

Yes, it really should have been a cover. It is a great picture. He had so many great pictures he could have used to make nice album artwork. Instead he let an amateur like Parke design awful artwork for such a long time. I think with better artwork he would have sold more records to people who were not hardcore fans.

Mike Ruiz and his boyfriend at the time Martin were both invited onstage during Prince's 2011 tour (according to Ruiz's facebook page) . Prince used him as a photographer relatively frequently. According to Ruiz, Prince played for him and his assistant at Paisley at one point.

wow. i'm wondering if this hat was used much in other photo shoots? i had this dream 4 days ago with prince wearing this exact hat, but in the dream his hair seemed bigger. he was in a hotel in a country whose currency is pesos. it was like a sepia movie. and it was important for him to avoid elevators.
