Dead Rock Stars 19: Prince

In this episode, esteemed rock writers Mick Wall and Joel McIver look at the purple reign of Prince. From teenage wunderkind, signed at 17 to a major label and given complete creative control to his stunning Super Bowl performances, Prince's life was not like other musicians'. Singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, auteur, movie star, talent scout, provocateur, music factory... Prince was many, many things. Most surprising, and known to only a small coterie of people, he was also addicted to Fentanyl, the drug on which he overdosed in 2017. But Prince's known legacy is not only huge, his vast vaults are said to contain hours and hours of unheard music. Even for the most ardent Prince fan, there's still much we can learn from the man.
