Description

"Prince was a gift and a genius. He showed us that we have no limits." Alicia Keys

"He was the most incredibly talented artist. A man in complete control of his work from writer and musician to producer and director." Kate Bush

"The most amazing performer I have ever witnessed." Joni Mitchell

"He Changed The World!!" Madonna

In a career that spanned five decades, Prince really did change the world. After making some of most inventive albums of the 80s - including 1999, Purple Rain, and Sign "O" The Times - he turned his attention to redefining his role in the music industry, changing his name to an unpronounceable symbol, declaring war on Warner Bros, and leading the internet revolution. When he died, on April 21 2016, the world lost one of the few artists who could truly claim to be called a genius. His legacy lives on, and will remain an inspiration for all time.

Prince: Life & Times is a large format, lavishly illustrated, authoritative chronicle of his career, covering every album, every movie, and every tour. It includes profiles of key collaborators, assesses his various business dealings, and details his many side-projects - on stage, on record, on screen, and beyond. This updated second edition includes detailed information on Prince's activity from 2008 to 2016.
