BIOGRAPHY:

Prince Rogers Nelson, known by the mononym Prince, was an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and actor.


TRIVIA:
  • One of very few artists who has denied ''Weird Al' Yankovic' (qv) permission to parody any of his songs. After years of asking, ''Weird Al' Yankovic' obtained video parody permission, and the video for _UHF (1989)_ (qv) includes a sequence that spoofs the bathtub intro for Prince's video of "When Doves Cry".
  • In the late 1990s, he requested to be referred to as simply The Artist, since his initial intention when he changed his name to O(+> was to not be referred to as Prince. Unfortunately that was not going too well, considering everyone was calling him the Artist Formerly Known as Prince because the symbol has no pronunciation.
  • Performed a composition written by his father, 'John L. Nelson' (qv), in the music of _Purple Rain (1984)_ (qv); this music was also part a song from the _Purple Rain (1984)_ (qv) soundtrack, "Computer Blue".
  • Is a Vegetarian.
  • Winner of the British Phonographic Industry Awards for International Act and Soundtrack for "Purple Rain" in 1985.
  • In November 2005 he was told by his doctors that he would need a hip replacement following years of energetic dancing on stage.
  • Ranked #18 on VH1's 100 Greatest Artists of Rock & Roll.
  • Held a press conference to announce his intention to perform 21 shows in London. (8 May 2007).
