"Prince: I Was There" by Richard Houghton: what happened with this book?

Some months ago Michael "Princeologist" Robertson published a list of upcoming books, one of them was "Prince: I Was There" by Richard Houghton, which was supposed to have come out in October 2018.

.

However, searching online only gives dead ends. https://www.hive.co.uk/Pr...e/23093702 claims a release date of 22 August 2019 (so do many other onlien stores), yet when you go to the publisher's website the book isn't mentioned anywhere: https://redplanetmusicboo...ctions/all .

.

Does anybody know what happened? Did this merely get delayed, and the publisher's website isn't much cop (thus not mentioning it)?

OK, give Bart a break. Even I must admit that since his return, he's been very polite and not rude in any way. A joy to have around.

So Dump Time is over, please let Bart be.

Thanks.

I find it strange that there is not even a mention of a Prince book on his webpage.

Joking aside are any of this guy's other books worth a shit?

Richard Houghton would love to hear your stories about attending Prince concerts. He'd also like pictures of you there, if you have them. Send your stories/photos to:

iwasatthatgig@gmail.com

He'd also appreciate it if you could spread the word in any Prince communities. This book is very much a "go" if he can get enough stories.

Good luck!

Surely there’s no doubt now that this guy is just a TROLL.

I thought maybe he was just a repressed school teacher or creating a misguided portfolio to present to his interview as a cleaner at Google.

But no, he’s just a troll and a huge blight on these boards. Kick him off.
