More About This Title Prince
Prince Rogers Nelson released his first album in 1978. In the almost 40 years that followed he became a superstar, a recluse, an inspiration, an enigma, and a symbol. He was a master of reinvention, but the one constant in his astonishing career was his genius: as a singer, a songwriter, a performer and musician. He sold more than 100 million albums, won Grammys and an Oscar. His ability to fuse styles and genres made him one of the most unique, influential and beloved artists in music history. Here, music journalist Brian Morton reveals the highs and lows of an incredible musical life.
Brian Morton wrote for the Times for 10 years and has worked as an arts and music commentator on BBC Radio. He is the coauthor of The Penguin Guide to Jazz.
