Thanks for the update, Alex. You mentioned there would be a couple of volumes - I can imagine that you can't pack the life he lived into one book. Well, you could....but it would take a forklift to read it wink

Thanks very much! We are writing this book at a much greater level of granularity than Possessed (as well as with a different approach overall). The granularity brings with it length. So indeed, this will be a volume that covers a discrete part of Prince's life -- in effect the "origins story." Depending on how this goes, other volumes are a strong possibility. My interest is in finding new things to explore. Inevitably, there will be some crossover with Possessed (and other books, for that matter), but if there isn't something new to say, that's of less interest to me. But with that said, people are approaching us with a fair amount of new information on any number of topics.

Thanks Alex! Anxiously awaiting the final product. Just wondering if there will be an advanced purchase or advanced order for the book offered?

...why did you just leave me standing, alone in a world thats so cold..... cry

I'm so upset I can't get a copy if Possessed. I want to read it so badly but cannot afford the prices out there. Even checjed with libraries and zero luck.

You can join the FB page and download or read it from there. It's a public group.

U can't JOIN a FB group, even public page... without a FB account.


Yeah, interested but not signing up for facebook. If I won't do it for friends and family I certainly won't do it for this. Guess I'll just read it later...

I enjoyed the Jimi references. cool

[Edited 9/13/16 21:04pm]

thanks very much. It felt appropriate and natural to me given the parallels between Prince and Hendrix, not to mention the recurrence of the words "rain" and "dream" throughout Prince's canon.

Thanks for the ongoing encouragement, and it was nice of Bart to help people get it who aren't on FB. This excerpt can be freely circulated, posted, etc., whereever, so please feel free.

Same here, you seriously need to put out a kindle version of Possessed or a republication. Please, please, pretty please. reading

StopIt

regarding the draft of the Foreward, (or whatever the draft Preface was termed,) I think its a significant misstep to state that certain folks were playing his songs publicly on the initial news of his death to "say goodbye."

That's not what was happening in those moments.
