Someone from work is a hardcore fan like me

Now, I know this because on the way to my car (huge parking lot), this guy was blasting Prince out of a huge black truck. Can’t tell the make/model/year. But I recognize it when i see it. Haven’t had a chance to talk to him about our shared Prince fandom, but if i ever catch him going to or from his car, i’ll let him know

And he was playing one of my favorite Prince dance tracks of the 90s: Billy Jack Bitch

A cool surprise. “Damn. He’s an authentic Prince fan!”

Anyone else love moments like this?

Summer '88 I was working as a vendor at Yankee Stadium. Before work there's a while where we wait around in our uniforms. I heard the faintest noise, sounded like horns.

After a while I recognized some high-pitched notes from the album Lovesexy. I found the guy with his Walkman. Later on, I said, "You're the Prince fan." He looked a little defensive. "Yeah. You like him?" "He's the best."

I wish I could say we became lifelong friends. I don't even remember his name. But it's always fun to find someone else who knows what's up.

Yes, someone from my office found out I was a Prince fan and approached me to talk about it. I never would have thought he was a casual Prince fan, let alone hardcore, if he hadn't told me. Doesn't seem the type at all. I made the mistake of judging a book by its cover. Anyway, he shared his extensive bootleg collection with me, helping me plug a lot of holes in my own collection.

I worked with a fellow hardcore fan once. Tried to bond with him over it but he seemed defensive and unfriendly, like he was the "Prince guy" in the office and didn't like someone else muscling in on that and making it less special.
