You might not think you find Prince Rogers Nelson physically attractive. I mean, he’s 3 foot 4 and looks like a walking Soul-Glo advert that’s had a rummage in Edward Scissorhand’s wardrobe at times. But this is absolutely beside the point. The man is irrefutably one of THE most unbelievably brilliant and influential musicians of all time. Inescapably prolific, the mini-maestro has been recording music for nearly forty years and nearly all of his back catalogue is still undeniably relevant. To see him perform live, as I was lucky enough to do this year, is a four hour lesson in FUNK and yes, sex. He became the most seductively magnetic creature I’ve ever seen. He is magnificent in aura, if not in stature.
(Doron and Joe, you shared an actual dream of mine with me so this is dedicated to you with masses of love xx)
