This week, we finally do our tribute to Prince. Born Prince Rogers Nelson, The Artist Mostly Known As Prince was one of the most prolific songwriters of our time. Blending funk, rock and R&B, Prince was a force to be reckoned with. One of the Top 50 Guitarists by Rolling Stone magazine, Prince lived a life that was envied by many. He got a recording contract at age 17. He replaced his name with a symbol, then changed it back again.
He was the purple one.
From his home in Paisley Park (just outside of Minneapolis, Minnesota), Prince built an empire, releasing 39 albums, recording dozens (maybe hundreds) more. A tiny guy with a big amount of style. This week, we give you an overview of the life and music of Prince.
