Question about numbers on shirt

There is a photo with him and playing an acoustic bass guitar with numbers all over his shirt: 11:58:57 and on his sleeve 9:50. What is the significance of these numbers? I am not looking for a conspiracy type of explanation, just a reasonable, educated guess.

Maybe the 11:58:57 is in reference to the doomsday clock?

Can you link to the photo? Determining when it was taken will help with the guessing.

Someone suggested on the twitter thread that it was the time Prince's VCR was stuck on for years... shrug As plausible as anything I guess... razz

At 00:00:00 the guarantee on the shirt runs out. Just kidding. He just knew what time it is.

.

The one of his sleeve is the last half of a similar set of numbers. Considering that his shirt is crumpled around his chest and possibly obscures part of the last number, and considering that they likely reused the same template for the chest and the sleeve(s), chances are they're the same sequence: 11:59:50. And I'm not even 100% sure about the "11", since the shirt has a fold where the second "1" is, but then again it seems unlikely to be another number.

Perhaps. But a countdown to what? I don't think it has anything to do with Prince's passing, if that is what you are suggesting.
I was thinking something more prosaic - like a new album cover or similar.

You do realize that Prince did die 'under the (cherry) Pink Moon'? Not a joke-look it up. 'April 21-22, 2016' . I know Lemoncrush wasn't insinuating that, but it is what it is. eek

That's what I thought Lemoncrush was referring to. Anyway it could signal a new beginning, the moon having gone full circle, the clock approaching twelve?

I think it is a reference to the photo on the inner sleeve of For You.

11:59:50 adds up to 21. Prince does not do anything just to do it. The numbers clearly have meaning.

And 21 divided by 3 (for the 3 sets of numbers) = 7. wink

The number 21 has always been important to Prince for many reasons. One of those reasons is to him it translates to “to one” or to god. There were 21 doves i. paisley with the 19 paonted and the 2 live ones.

That's cool. 7 was special to him also. Pretty cool that you figured out it all added up to 21.
