He was the soundtrack of my teenage years. Prince, Morris Day, Vanity 6, The Time…that was my 80s.
I remember I learned what a real artist was when I bought “Around the World in a Day” which was the follow-up to his huge mainstream hit Purple Rain and, on first listen, thinking “what the fuck is that?” But it intrigued me that he took such a big turn musically and artistically and that it was music like I had never heard before and to this day it’s one of my favorite albums.
I gained a lot of respect for him that day and learned what it was to be a real artist.
