PRINCE

AMERICAN MUSICIAN PRINCE ACHIEVED WIDE FAME IN THE 1980S WITH '1999' AND 'PURPLE RAIN,' THE LATTER ALBUM ALSO SERVING AS THE SOUNDTRACK FOR THE POPULAR FILM OF THE SAME NAME. LATER PRINCE ALBUMS INCLUDED 'SIGN 'O' THE TIMES,' 'DIAMONDS AND PEARLS' AND 'MUSICOLOGY.'

PRINCE WAS BORN PRINCE ROGERS NELSON ON JUNE 7, 1958, IN MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA. PRINCE'S EARLY MUSIC CAREER SAW THE RELEASE OF PRINCE, DIRTY MIND AND CONTROVERSY — ALL OF WHICH CREATED CONTROVERSY DUE TO THEIR FUSION OF RELIGIOUS AND SEXUAL THEMES.

 

HE THEN RELEASED THE ALBUMS 1999 AND PURPLE RAIN, CEMENTING HIS SUPERSTAR STATUS WITH NO. 1 HITS LIKE "WHEN DOVES CRY" AND "LET'S GO CRAZY."

 

A SEVEN-TIME GRAMMY WINNER, PRINCE HAD A PRODIGIOUS OUTPUT THAT INCLUDED LATER ALBUMS LIKE DIAMONDS AND PEARLS, THE GOLD EXPERIENCE AND MUSICOLOGY. HE DIED ON APRIL 21, 2016 AT 57 YEARS OLD.

“I know those paths of excess, drugs, sex and alcohol - all those experiences can be funky, they can be very funky, but they’re just paths,

a diversion, not the answer…” —Prince

ALEX  as Prince

ALEX'S LOVE OF PRINCE CAME AT THE AGE OF 18, WHEN HIS FRIEND GEORGE HANDED HIM OVER A CASSETTE WHICH CONTAINED SELECTIONS OF PRINCE'S FIRST 4 ALBUMS.

ALEX BEGAN INCORPORATING SONGS LIKE PURPLE RAIN & KISS INTO HIS SETS AND MORE OFTEN THAN NOT, PEOPLE WERE COMING UP TO HIM AND SAYING HOW MUCH HE SOUNDED LIKE PRINCE.

IN SEPTEMBER 2016, A PRINCE TRIBUTE NIGHT WAS HELD AT "STARFISH LOVES COFFEE" IN PALMERS GREEN, LONDON, WHERE ALEX PERFORMED AN IMPROMPTU "PIANO & A MICROPHONE" SET.

THE SUCCESS OF THAT NIGHT HAD MORE OR LESS MADE HIS MIND UP. THE AUDIENCE WERE TELLING HIM HOW MUCH HE SOUNDED LIKE THE REAL THING BUT HEARING THESE COMMENTS FROM TRUE PRINCE FANS MEANT SO MUCH.

SINCE SEPTEMBER 2017, ALEX HAS TAKEN HIS TRIBUTE TO PRINCE ON THE ROAD AND HASN'T LOOKED BACK.
