3 Reviews
In 1977 a shy teenager with an Afro and an attitude signed a record deal. Twenty years later, the man is still making music and still hitting the headlines. Purple Reign takes a long, hard look at the artist formerly known as Prince. It goes behind the scenes for an exclusive interview in which the artist talks openly of his battle with the music industry, his new wife, his new life, and how he makes music. Interviews with family, friends, fellow musicians, producers, dancers, and managers shed light on perhaps the most misunderstood, and certainly most elusive, artist of our time.
