Epic fashion and music moments on his 1985 Purple Rain tour. Adored his studded Byronesque style, that was somehow classical yet extravagant. Man alive, could that guy rock a pirate shirt like nobody's business. In so many ways he spoke to the freak-outsider in all of us and made it cool and beautiful.
Other artists have benefitted from his stand against music available for free on YouTube, but now sadly we don't have enough videos of him.
Wheeled out the velvet jacket and frilly shirt (ten years old but still a favorite) last night in his honor.
Other purplenesses around the house this morning...
This is what is sounds like
When doves cry.
Isn't that one of the most perfect lines ever?
Goodnight sweet Prince, see you again underneath the Purple Rain.
