Neil Lupin/Redferns

Despite his passing, the impact Prince made in the music industry will live on forever. In fact, here are 11 quotes that perfectly depict the legacy Prince has left behind:

Prince, 1990

David Corio/Michael Ochs Archives


1. On His Changing Music Style, LA Times, 1982:
"All people care about nowadays is getting paid, so they try to do just what the audience wants them to do. I'd rather give people what they need rather than just what they want."

2. On Not Being Afraid to Try New Things,LA Times, 1982: "The most important thing is to be true to yourself, but I also like danger. That's what's missing from pop music today. There's no excitement or mystery."

3. On Moving on From the Past, Rolling Stone, 1985: "I used to tease a lot of journalists early on, because I wanted them to concentrate on the music and not so much on me coming from a broken home...I don't live in the past. I don't play my old records for that reason. I make a statement, then move on to the next."
