23 years - I remember the act of droppin' the needle of my 45" portable record player onto the B-side of "Let's Go Crazy" which became, IMHO, the greatest song of all time ---- EROTIC CITY. I was 12...




Been funkin' ever since... bananadance

Only 16 years, I knew of him since 1984 with Purple Rain, but that is still more than half my life. I first went gaga over the video to cream in late 1991 as I was at the age where I still saw sex as something to be laughed at in secret, and here's Mr Prince dancing a mock orgy on stage with 50 scantily clad woman to a song that could be easily interpreted as the act itself. Within hours I was drawing pictures of him holding a guitar over his privates going "Cream" and it was my new favourite statement and actually REALLY started digging his music too. By Christmas I had the Cream, Gett Off, Thieves in Temple and Insatiable on Cassingles and a cherished CD copy of Diamonds and Pearls. By 1992 I had read several books and had most of his output to then and bought SYMBOL on its release date (October 16 1992 in New Zealand I think) and remember Sexy MF being on the news because of the lyrics.
17 Years ago I made a commitment to Prince

I liked the Purple Rain album when my dad bought it. It was probably 1985 before I started listening to it all the way through, and I loved it.

Couldn't really say I was a fan (buying all his back catalogue and current material with my own money) until 1993 because that's when I left school and got my first job.

So, 14 years if I'm being strict about the word fan. 22 years if you class a fan as someone who loves 1 album.

7 years if you count being obsessive about collecting rare and bootleg stuff.

I love Soft and Wet, Sexy Dancer, and Still Waiting...but it wasn't until Dirty Mind that I totally knew I was hooked...My mom was not having it (8th grade), so I was a closet fan. By my sophomore year it grew into a guilty pleasure and after my first concert in 1983 with the bed on stage, Prince took on a whole new level....It's all a blur after that and I know I'll be a Prince fan 4ever...

Thanks P cool

I stopped keeping track when I passed the 12 yr. mark.

Coming from a simple, backwoods,southern-based hillfolk background, my education concluded somewhere near the end of the first grade.
So as of now,
that as far as I can count up to.
And that's using my all my severly inbred fingers and toes.

i got my mam to buy me SEXY M.F in 92 . but werent really a fan then . was just a kid who thought it was cool cos it had swearing in it lol .. it was when i heard PEACH on the radio in 93 . that i thought i love that song i wanna get it . didnt know it was prince . but soon found out .. then CONTROVERSY was re-released as a single over here in the UK . i saw it on tv an got it . an then THE HITS 1 an THE HITS 2 for xmas 93 .. then the rest is history . i knew pretty soon after hearing them albums that i had to get every album/video/film b-side bootleg that this guy had ever put out an thats what i did . an thats what i done since . Princes music does that too alot people . he is addictive an grabbed me as a 13year old an had a hold on me since .. i loved the whole madness of the era aswell.i went to see him 1st time in concert in 95 .an just remember thinking about the gig 4 like a week after . an set off to school .but didnt bother going .just walked the streets on a high .. i remember GOLD was the last song played an it stuck in my head all the way home . i think everyone there realised that was a special song .. i didnt hear it on record til THE GOLD EXPERIENCE came out .. but it lived up to my expections an my memory of it .. lee
whenever i want to hear some new music ...i make some - prince '99'

I've heard Prince's songs back in the early '80s with songs like Controversy, 1999, Little Red Corvette (when I was in grade school). By the time I heard When Doves Cry before the Purple Rain movie came out, I've become a Prince fan...for life!!
