Taking you back to the sights, sounds, and the people of the 20th Century
Born June 7, 1958; died April 21, 2016
Prince Rogers Nelson was an American singer, songwriter, musician, record producer and filmmaker.
Prince developed an interest in music as a young child and wrote his first song at the age of seven. He signed a recording contract with Warner Bros. Records at the age of 17. In 1993, while in a contractual dispute with Warner Bros., he changed his stage name to an unpronounceable symbol (left), also known as the “Love Symbol”, and began releasing new albums at a faster rate to remove himself from contractual obligations.
Prince had become addicted to pain medication and was ruled to have died from an accidental overdose of fentanyl.
