(This item contains numerous spoilers for the book, including many previously unseen photos and handwritten pages. It also contains a small excerpt from an outtake from the "1999" era, but I didn't recognize it. Sounds like an alternate or live version of "Do Me, Baby", in fact.)

If you care so much, why don't you read the extensive legal documents linked in the estate thread?

Beaten, but came here to post the NPR interview

I read a lot into it but it could just be confirmation bias. Seems to me Prince knew he was on borrowed time and I honestly don't think it was from the drug addiction.

Because nobody here is as smart as you are, obviously.

God you insufferable. Are you like this on your day to day to life or do you save it all up for us?

Couldn’t wait and had to peak at some of the links. One thing is clear - Prince had a talent for drawing from the start, and a unique mind based on the full cover shot biggrin

I don't know about this. Prince didn't even come close to completing this. As of matter of fact he passed just as he was starting. I bet this is just another Bio, made up mostly of compiled past and already published interviews.

Why do you lot keep lying? The contents of the book have been known since April, and through numerous articles in the past week we now know exactly what the book contains. Try reading them instead of making shit up.

You should know better.

Though as someone who has the book already, I can certainly confirm its not what you said it is.

I Spend My Time Loving You

Long review contrasting The Beautiful Ones with Morris Day's On Time in Belgian newspaper De Morgen today (in Dutch). In the newspaper there is a big photo on the front page of the newspaper, and the review takes up the first 1.5 page of the second section of the newspaper. (I'll post photos later.)

Interesting to see what songs Purple Rain was gonna have before it was Purple Rain!

No wonder he went back to these sessions for a graffiti Bridge.
