A study in purple…

Never got to see him live (came close once, but the record company said ‘No”), yet Prince was always an intriguing character.

Good music, plenty of energy and the willingness to take on the record company when things didn’t go his way.

And the nous to let other artists take on his songs too – Sinead O’Connor and The Bangles are just two names that spring to mind.
