I've been a Prince fan since he woke me up out of the coma that was my Reagan Era adolescence. I later spent a good part of my twenties going to every Prince concert, television taping and public appearance that I could. I have a lifetime of great memories (and a few cherished personal encounters) filled with music, humor and spirituality.
Here's a signature from my modest collection of Prince memorabilia. I have no doubt as to it's authenticity so maybe this is the wrong forum for this posting, but I just thought I'd share it as an example of his signature when he was at ease and in his element. On one occasion that I was fortunate enough to speak to him I inadvertently referred to myself as a fan. He replied that he preferred to think of me as a "friend". That pretty much says it all. Rest In Peace "Friend".

Correction- The joint I recommended earlier is BUNKER'S Bar & Grill- NOT Burke's. Burke's is a musical instruments shop in Melbourne that I like to recommend. Burke's is cool too but a long way to travel for a kazoo- and they don't have a happy hour (lol). The Valley Tap House is just south of Minneapolis in Apple Valley. Remember: BUNKER'S Bar & Grill for the best (in my opinion) live music in Minneapolis.
Hey it was the 80s!...what a way to start the decade.... embarrassing?!..it's awesome...lol...to a promo copy of Dirty Mind.... Prince would smile at this story...beats my first "memory"....I love it...wrap parties, premieres, the tonight show!.....i wanna be you... lol... tell us more!...you should write a book...seriously
Julie I think I just DID(lol). If I ever did write that book I'd be lucky to get invited to the opening of an envelope. There was a lot of debauchery goin' down in the 80's. I quote Rick James: "Cocaine is a HELLUVA drug!".
Lol..tru dat...fictional disclaimer here...I loved the 80s...still listening to it...
Are you speaking from experience Paul? If so, which end of the pen did you find yourself on (lol)?
My old girlfriends just used me for my body, I'm scarred for life!!
They just thought I was some kind of playground.
I don't know his exact age James. He seemed really old at the time but I'd guess he was in his mid or late thirties- young by "suits" standards anyway.
