As unreleased material trickles out of the Prince estate, some fantastic stories have emerged. I haven’t yet read The Beautiful Ones, but even the stories that aren’t part of his incomplete autobiography are top-notch Prince mythology.
Prince hired a DJ to play music for just him and his date:
“And then it hits me,” WallyWaves writes. “There’s only two people in there. Prince and a girl. I’m not there to DJ a private party. I’m there to DJ a date. Prince is on a date and I’m the entertainment.”
Prince shopping before Tower Records opened:
Mike: “How do you want to pay for this? Would you like us to ring it up now?”
Jerome: “Yeah, talk to THIS dude, here’s his number, he’ll handle it.” (hands us digits for the President of Warner Bros. Records)
