Rest in Purple Paradise - PRINCE

by SpaceKoolnaut


on June 7, 1958 in Minneapolis, MN

PRINCE - FOR YOU album debut April 7, 1978

under Warner Bros record label

1984 was an ICONIC YEAR in Pop Culture, Movies, & Music

Transformers debut - More Than Meets the Eye!

PURPLE RAIN soundtrack and movie debut

The soundtrack album and movie takes the world by storm!

PRINCE had the number one soundtrack and movie

at the same time with PURPLE RAIN!


as the top selling single for 1984

My 10-year old could not contain the excitement

and I begged and begged till my Mom n Dad took me to see PURPLE RAIN in the Theaters

from that point on I was ever drawn to PRINCE's guitar

wizadry, power ballads, and that signature Minneapolis Synth-Pop-Funk-Soul sound

"PRINCE is from the school of James Brown" - Miles Davis

"but Prince got some Marvin Gaye and Jimi Hendrix and Sly in him, also, even Little Richard. "

1990 BATMAN featured PRINCE's "BATDANCE"

"and where is the BATMAN?!!!!"

PRINCE would change his name to this symbol to selling

over 100 million records worldwide over his remarkable career

Dave Chappelle with his infamous PRINCE skit

"Game...Blouses" ...PRINCE influenced us all

gone April 21, 2016

but PRINCE's music will live FOREVER

I only want to see you laughing in the Purple Rain

Thank you and Rest in Purple Paradise our beloved PRINCE.
