He was first seen playing it in 94, during the Exodus/Gold Experience period, two years before the post suggests

Wouldn't usually be so pedantic, but it would be helpful if the official Paisley Park page could get the facts right.

Y'all can go on with the "if they could get their facts straight", but this is the first of anything being off since the books came out. It's a fucking typo for fuck's sake. It's not like they're writing "When Purple Parade was released in 1994, The Revolution saw new levels of fame as they started to film Graffiti Rain" or whatever.

And if you knew the date, it wouldn't have been helpful to you whether they were right or wrong. You already knew. Just sayin'.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

It's not merely a typo as the timeline presented in the entire article is predicated on it.

It may be carelessness but I still feel it is indicative of something else more endemic.

How retarded do you have to be to think Prince would scrawl 'slave' on his face after he had been emancipated? Please.
