Reviews

Praise for Prince: The Man and His Music by Matt Thorne "Matt Thorne's Prince is the definitive work on the man; I am listening again to every piece of his music with renewed enthusiasm." --Alexis Taylor, Hot Chip "[Thorne] brings an enthusiasm, intelligence, and maverick spirit to the 562 pages covering the 35-year career of Prince Rogers Nelson. . . It's to Thorne's credit that through painstaking research and interviews he manages to paint a picture of what the man, rather than the myth, is actually like. A must for the legions of Prince fans out there." --Doug Johnstone, Big Issue "Thorne brings an exhaustive knowledge and attention to detail to the task. . . if you're as much of a fan as Thorne, you'll be in heaven." --Mick Brown, Daily Telegraph "The final word on the mad genius known as Prince Rogers Nelson. There is now quite literally nothing more to say about Prince or his music. It's all here--dance, sex, romance, and above all, the music. Downright orgasmic." --Current magazine "If you've ever craved the empurpled equivalent of Paul Williams' Bob Dylan: Performing Artist. . . you are well served." --Danny Eccleston, Mojo "Impishly encyclopaedic, brings alert senses to bear. . . in stripping back the purple finery." --Ben Thompson, Independent on Sunday Music Books of the Year "Thorne is a good stylist and a deep thinker but primarily he's a fan. . . . Thorne is a compelling, emotional narrator." --Kate Mossman, New Statesman "Highly engaging." --Mark Ellen, Observer "Everything I love in a book." --Nemone, BBC Radio 6 Music Praise for "Prince: The Man and His Music" by Matt Thorne "Matt Thorne's "Prince" is the definitive work on the man; I am listening again to every piece of his music with renewed enthusiasm."
