Summary
Nothing Compares 2 U is an oral history built from years of interviews with dozens of people who were in Prince's inner circle--from childhood friends to band members to girlfriends to managers to engineers to photographers, and more--all providing unique insights into the man and the musician. This revelatory book is a deeply personal and candid discussion of who Prince really was emotionally, professionally, and romantically. It tackles subjects never-before-discussed, including Prince's multiple personalities, his romantic relationships, his traumatic childhood and how it propelled him into his music career, and how he found the inspiration for some of his most important songs, including "Purple Rain," "Starfish and Coffee," and the unheard "Wally." Nothing Compares 2 U paints the most complete picture yet written of the most important and most mysterious artist of his time
