Prince, a history
Prince Rogers Nelson was born to father John Nelson, stage-name Prince Rogers, and mother, jazz singer Mattie Shaw. He arrived in Minnesota, in the United States, on 7 June 1958. With musicians for parents, it's no surprise that he held an interest in playing from a young age. He taught himself how to play the drums, guitar and piano. He started his first band in high school and would later sign his first record deal in 1978, at the age of 20. It was his hit albums 1999 (1982) and Purple Rain (1984) that would catapult him to global fame in the 1980s.
Prince's music career
Prince won seven Grammys over the years, but his career wasn't without controversy. The imagery he used was often controversial. In fact, it was his music that resulted in parental guidance labels being placed on albums. Of course, he also hit the headlines for choosing to change his name to an unpronounceable symbol. This was due to tension with his record label at the time. He would later return to using Prince once he was freed from the label.
He passed away on 21 April 2016 at age 57.
