Thanks for the link, Latin, and for the review itself, Bluefish--and, for that matter, for the book, madhouseman.

Finally pre-ordered today--I thought I'd done it months ago, but apparently I hadn't.

Cant wait to read it bluefish

THIS::

“Sex is always the most interesting thing to write about. It’s the one subject people can’t talk about without losing their cool. Have you ever noticed people can talk about Iran, they can talk about JFK being shot, but as soon as you bring up their sex life, they start stuttering? My family, my father and my mother, life and death, are far more personal to me than sex.” –Prince (p. 398)

Thank you for the interview. It was great talking to you and I'm really excited that you've enjoyed the book. It comes out on November 15th, and I'm working on some promotions that give away a signed book. I'll have more details about that soon.

Once again Chris, thank you for the talk. You were great.

My book PRINCE and The Purple Rain Era Studio Sessions 1983-1984 comes out in November 2017. For more info go to https://www.facebook.com/...104195943/ and join the conversation.

"The fact that the one and only Questlove, a self-professed Prince scholar, contributed the Foreword tells you how important and vital this book is.

I was wondering if the November 15th date is a worldwide date? Here in The Netherlands January 2018 is mentioned at all webshops. And I just cannot wait to get my hands on it!!! At least not until January.

Thanks in advance!

I know right! Like the foreword being written by Questlove is what pushes the anticipation of this book over the top.

I know many Prince fans dislike Questlove, but the fact is he is known to the general public as a Prince scholar. He is the band leader on the most popular U.S. late night talk show, and gets tremendous exposure from that. The fact that he has put his support behind Duane and his book is a big deal.

Before you write me off as Questlove's publicist, I can assure you I know very little about the man or his work. Above all, I wrote that line of the review out of respect to Duane, since I know for a fact he is very humbled and honored by the fact that Questlove cares about and supports his book.

Despite pre-ordering this book on Oct. 30th and today being the release date, Amazon still says that it has not yet shipped and that they need a little more time to provide me with a good estimate on delivery. They will notify me via e-mail as soon as they have an estimated delivery date. Also, they say this usually happens when an item doesn't have a release date, it's pre-ordered, or it's out of stock. WTF? This is beginning to annoy me. Has anybody else heard anything or received their copy today?
