The ultimate pictorial tribute to Prince—with personal, firsthand anecdotes from those who grew up with, knew, and worked alongside him. Prince was a legend of artistry and individuality, a man who lived for his music and positioned himself outside the confines of the recording industry. News of his untimely passing shocked and shattered his millions of fans. Filled with rare and carefully curated photos of Prince from all stages of his career, this visually stunning unofficial music biography tells Prince’s story through conversations that journalist (and Prince fanatic) Mobeen Azhar had with the people who knew him best—friends, musicians, artists, and members of his inner circle—many speaking out about the great artist for the first time. These firsthand accounts paint a more personal picture of Prince than any seen before, and, along with the images, pay homage to the originality, musical genius, glamour, and sex appeal that Prince embodied.
