Prince : Inside the Music and the Masks, Paperback

Prince : Inside the Music and the Masks Paperback



In over thirty years as one of the most original and charismatic figures in modern music, Prince Rogers Nelson has enjoyed huge success - and courted considerable controversy.

Now, acclaimed rock journalist Ronin Ro chronicles both the man and his music.

During the course of his journey from teenage obscurity to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Prince has provoked moral outrage, starred in a hit movie, adopted an unpronounceable symbol for a stage name, confronted record labels and fostered young talent, making a profound mark on the entertainment industry and pop culture at large.

Moreover, his restless creativity has produced a string of international hits including 'Little Red Corvette', 'Let's Go Crazy', 'Kiss' and 'Cream', and at the height of his fame the album Purple Rain was selling at a rate of a million copies a week in the US alone.

Through access to an unrivalled array of witnesses to Prince's remarkable rise, including former producers, bandmates and managers, Ronin Ro gets closer to him than any previous biographer, peeling away the masks to lay bare the story of a true modern icon.
