The Rise of Prince 1958-1988
The Rise of Prince: 1958-1988 will serve as the definitive account of the iconic artist's first 30 years. More so than any previous book, this 350-page volume provides a dramatic, page-turning narrative of Prince's rise to fame.
This book’s gripping, 50-page prologue provides a nearly day-to-day account of the events that unfolded between November 2015 and April 21, 2016, when Prince tragically died at Paisley Park. The great distance traveled by Prince during his final months – tours of Australia and New Zealand, a funeral in the Bay Area for former muse and lover Denise Matthews, a tour of Canada, and a final return home – in some ways mirrored on a grand scale Prince’s nomadic childhood, to which the book returns after detailing the events of 2016.
The Rise of Prince: 1958-1988 gives you a front-row seat to the dramatic events of iconic artist Prince Rogers Nelson’s dazzling rise to fame. The book opens with the gripping tale of Prince’s final months in 2016, and then transports you to the Minneapolis of his childhood to tell a story that is by turns tragic and triumphant.
Thanks to the many...
