Since Soft & Wet. The 70's was the best time for music. Listening to 94 East reminds me alot of that time...funky jazzy big band sounds (ie Rose Royce, Dazz Bank, Earth Wind & Fire) Prince could hang with the best of them. All those other bands have however, fallen by the wayside, but he's still kickin it, and that's why I'm still a fan.

I'd be his Future Baby Mama too! lol (considering my age tho, he'd better cum quick with the lickin stick) biggrin

i've been a Prince fan since I heard the first Prince song 'Girls and Boys' around 1988, I was about 12 years old.

since then I have become a bigger fan and now I am 31 years old. the early 90's was a time for me when I discovered more of Prince's back catalogue and performances through MTV.
Feel free to send me a message and add me as a friend on 'My Space' http://www.myspace.com/murtazaarif

When Purple Rain came out, I was 15 and I just loved it. At my local record store, in their window, they had a lifesize cardboard cutout of Prince on his motorbike. I badgered them for it, they promised it to me and I went in every Saturday for weeks to make sure nobody else was going to get it... weeks later, one rainy Saturday morning, it was all mine!
I took it home on the bus ... boy did I get some funny looks from people!!
That was the start of it - a long time ago!

Walking around in 79 singing "I wanna b ur lover" and my mom asking what I know about being a lover! Not knowing who sang it but loving the song. Then my coz getting Dirty Mind cassette 4 his bday and singin "Jack U off" and not knowing what that was but singing it @ the top of my lungs every where I went.

Heard "LRC" but still not a big fam or know that I had been jamming 2 this dude 4 years. Then saw "Purple Rain" and that day I went and got my first cassette. The next day I went back 2 the store and got Prince and 4 U (cause that's all I had the money 4) getting home and relizing I LOVED this guys stuff and a week later I had them all.
So when should I count myself as joining the fam? Is it 29y or 22y?
