I love this book! I absolutely ate it up in 1 helping! Fascinating insights into the stupendous works of two outlandishly talented individuals. The comparisons were amazing and a little bit scary. Great work, well worth checking out 😎✌️❤️

According to one reviewer, there isn't much (if anything) in there that's new or revelatory about Prince. True or False??

No there isn't anything new concerning unreleased music... if that's what you mean.

It's not about that. Its far better than that even.

It might open your eyes in the way the writer looks at things.

And not only about the man and his music, but to pop/music in general.

You're going to have an extra interesting view on how Prince was from the begininng to the end.

Nice book.

If my local library gets a copy, I'll check it out... At 192 pages, it appears rather thin.

It's sitting in my e-reader even as we speak. Hoping to dive into it over Thanksgiving - I have five whole days off work.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.
