On 21 April 2016, the world lost its Prince; it was the day the music died. This audiobook will open a door to Prince's world like never before. From his traumatic childhood and demonic pursuit of music as a means of escape to his rise to superstardom, professional rivalries and marriages shrouded in tragedy, internationally best-selling music writer Mick Wall explores the historical, cultural and personal backdrop that gave rise to an artist the likes of which the world has never seen - and never will again.
Mick, a lifelong Prince fan, was one of the first UK journalists to ever write about this enigmatic star, and it was his story that put Prince on the cover of Kerrang magazine in 1984 and inspired the biggest mailbag of letters the magazine has ever had. As Prince sang in '7', 'no one in the whole universe will ever compare', and this audiobook is a shining tribute to the forever incomparable Prince.

Don't do accents!
Not the most comprehensive book on Prince! It did feel a little rushed together to get out as quick as possible after the great mans death, however I did enjoy it especially going through the album discography, BUT why oh why did the narrator feel it nessessary to try and mimic people's voices when relaying what they said!
He made Prince sound like Hannibal Lector & the Irish accent of Sinead O'Connor was abysmal, same when trying to do other accents of other people! There really was no need of it, just read it, it ruined the narration for me completely!

Couldn't get past the narrator.
I tried to persevere with the narration but all the rubbish accents and quite frankly silly impressions of people in the story were too much. Every time my interest was renewed by the story the narration would get on my nerves, looking for something else now.
