Purple Rain…

Last week, without reason, the world yet again lost an amazing artist. It has taken me some time to process this loss. Prince was not only a film and musician superstar he was also a wordsmith.  His first album dropped my freshman year in high school and other than Star Wars a movie I went to multiple times. I followed him through multiple albums and changes. During his 1999 tour, he pissed off the city of Phoenix for, shall we say, indecent behavior on stage. He was then banned from ever playing in Phoenix, I have never forgiven my hometown for doing that.

I got to see him live years later in San Diego and his was in the top five of live concerts I have ever been to. Prince was a perfectionist and both his music and lyrics showed it. While there have been many authors in my life who have been mentors Prince was the one that got me writing and being open with who I was in many things in my life.
