Sounds like fun!!! It's so exciting when you meet another all out Prince fan - they're so rare!

I'm waiting for the day that I'll actually meet another fan amongst my travels, I'm pretty sure we'll have an awesome conversation like the one you must have had with nurse aid.

Maybe he is an orger - how would you bring it up? if he was such a fan wouldn't he have sussed this website out by now? And if he is - would you want to know?

He'll probably be able to put claim to who you are, I mean it's pretty obvious, right? You're a nurse, fan of prince etc

biggrin

pray Peace in the House of Prince.

I have never met a real live Prince fan. Ever.

sad

I have met one too many people who have a visceral reaction that they "dislike" or "hate" him. Yet they have all been happy grooving to "Kiss' during kiss-cam and probably partied to "1999."

Cool little story, nursev.

Coming across TRUE prince fans in life, has been as rare as hens teeth for me!

I tend to encounter the frustration of a person hating Prince but commenting with either "Oh my brother's friend/a friend/girlfriend's sister/someone I knew in high school, was a HUGE Prince fan." wall

.......Yeah, well I'd love to meet them! wave

I had a random Prince event the other day. Not meeting someone that loves his music as I do but someone that once spoke to him.

I was walking out of work with headphones on when I saw our sales director. He asked what I was listening to and I said Prince of course! He asked if I was a big fan and I said yes, then he said that he spoke to him once...

He worked in the music industry for years, so this little fact didn't come as a complete shock but was still a surprise. He was working as an engineer in a studio where Mathilda May was working and she was a one time girlfriend of Prince. While there the phone rang and my guy answered it, to find someone asking for Mathilda. He said she was busy and he could take a message, but the caller said it was ok, he'd call back.


When he gave news of the call to Mathilda, she asked who it was and he said the caller didn't leave a name. She askled if it was an American guy and he said yes, so Mathilda says, "do you know who that was?", my man was oblivious and she told him it was Prince. Nothing too exciting but pretty cool. He then went on to tell how she told him a Prince story about, which actually was pretty cool.

She was at Prince's place and was sitting around all day while Prince was working out a new piece on the piano. She said he worked on it for the whole day, tinkering with it, developing it, really putting in the time.

The next day some record company peeps were round to see Prince and how things were coming. They're listening to stuff and Prince says, "This needs something... I have an idea, let's see if I can quickly work something out". And off he trots to the piano, sits down and plays out the part he'd spent most of the previous day developing! The record company peeps agreed it was perfect and were astounded by his genius.

It takes a lot of hard work to be as spontaneous as Prince!

Sadly he had no idea what the piece was or what album it was for, but I thought it was a pretty cool story smile.

RIP sad

My sister in law was on the same flight as him once and because she was being flown first class by the company she worked for she sat directly in front of him. She didn't speak to him (she was too shy) but she said he was incredibly nice to everyone who approached him.

I love these stories about Prince too (as long as they're credible, and these are very credible). I love fan stories too - people's experiences at concerts, meeting their spouse at a soundcheck, getting laid while listening to Prince, ... you get the idea. Just warms the cockles of my heart. cloud9

I know you're new to the org, so I offer this bit of advice - hold on to these first-hand accounts of him as a seemingly decent human being, because the longer your eyes pass over the gossip and opinions spouted here, you might start to muddle up fact & fiction yourself and sometimes begin to think that he is in fact an inhuman tyrant and fiend devoid of emotion. Enjoy the org and the information here (some accurate, especially regarding the music/recordings/tours), but read with a critical eye.

And thanks for sharing this account! cloud9

I love this account - as Thomas Edison said, Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.

Things don't just come to you simply because you're a genius. There's lots of geniuses who don't have the right attitude and work ethic, sitting around doing nothing with their lives - I know about this all too well. I admire that P works hard. It doesn't take away from the mystique of "genius" at all - I think it adds to it.

About 20 years ago when I was a college student in Lawrence, KS I signed up to be a part of a medical study in Kansasa City. There was something like a hundred other "patients" involved in this study. Among them was this kid who was rather effeminate, and I noticed was a Prince fanatic. He had a journal where he would reproduce Prince lyrics in his own artful script. The lyrics were accompanied by drawings, etc. I don't know if anyone else noticed, but being a fellow Prince fan I could spot him right away. I didn't acknowledge him though, I felt maybe he was a little more off the deep end than I was. I later noticed him in Lawrence at Penny Lane Reocrds, he was making oiff with one of the cardboard cutouts that accompanied the release of Graffiti Bridge. I have been a fan for many years, but try to moderate my enthusiasm and not be too unreasonable. It's funny though because many freinds think I am a little too fanatical regardless. Little do they know of the many others out there even more zealous than me. lol

Back in the 90's a co-worker pulled up to our work place jammin' to "Now" from The Gold Experience. I about flipped out! Later on in the day I hooked up with him and found out that he was a fellow purple hippy. Since then we have attended concerts, The Vibe Show, exchanged music and was even interviewed together about why we like Prince by our local news station when P was in town here in Fresno. Its cool to hook up with others who are just as knowledgeable.

george clinton was chuckling as he told an interviewer that in prince's live performances he rehearsed his spontaneity. he may seem crazy but he is crazy like a fox

i stayed in a dodgy hotel couple of weeks ago, 1980's refurb stylee, immaculate but so old fashioned lol at breakfast time, every morning pavrotti/the tennors/ kath jenkins over the speakers, fhhjjf&ing torture!!

but one morning we got purple rain. it felt surreal like the opera had finally sent us insane & having a mental moment..

the cool thing that happened was that as we twigged & realised that it was actually prince on the stereo, we heard another couple exclaim 'yes!! prince!!'

prince fans lurk all over the place, even in back of beyond

A couple of months back, some friends drunk dialed me from a bar to tell me that Prince music was playing non-stop. Don't know if they were just teasing me since the only song they know is Purple Rain, but I woke up in the morning to, like, 3 drunken voicemails and 5 texts. lol As for meeting another fan in the flesh, hasn't happened yet. confused

I'm heavily involved in the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, and it's a HUGE organization (27,000 volunteers). There's one group of high-society girls that are really, REALLY cool. They make a lot of money, they give a TON of money to charity, and they're always in the newspaper.

Their theme song is "P Control".

They are big-time Prince fans and collectors.

You could have knocked me over with a feather when I heard them request "P Control" at a party a couple years ago. Heck, several of them used it as their ringtone!

You just never know.

My daughter is 20 and is a waitress/ My kids have been raised on Prince their entire lives/ Anyway, one night two older gentleman came in and somehow, Prince was brought up (maybe a song came on, I'm not sure) and my daughter says, "Oh I love Prince!" and these men were like, "What the hell you know bout Prince?" thinking she had no idea anything about Prince, she proceeded to school them on every single album, started citing lyrics, showed them her Prince tattoo - they were a bit shocked. She knows more about Prince than I do. lol

I've told this story here before, but I always like to share it...

My first wife was called on stage to dance at the 2000 Celebration concert at Northrup. She was so excited that when she tried to step over the barrier to walk up to the stage, she slipped and almost fell. When she got to the steps that led up to the stage, Prince walked halfway down, grabbed her hand and then walked her the rest of the way back up. I saw him ask her something and she smiled really big, nodded her head, and I could tell she said, "Yes." Then he hugged her, turned, walked away and went about his business.

When I asked her what he said, she said, "He asked me if I was okay." I always thought that was really nice of him. Simple, but nice.


She died a few years ago, so it's nice to relate this memory now and again...I know it meant a lot to her.
