PEOPLE Celebrates the Life and Music of Prince in Special Edition

Three years after Prince's death, friends still remember the musician's legacy

(snippet)

The Purple One. His Royal Badness. The Artist. He was known by many names during his electrifying three-decades-long career, including at one point the unpronounceable Love Symbol that only a public personality as iconic as Prince could pull off. Born, raised and long-devoted to Minneapolis, Prince Rogers Nelson was among that city’s greatest gifts to the world, a musical prodigy whose virtuoso guitar licks, often raunchy lyrics and jamming beats provided the funky soundtrack to a global generation.

In a, intimate commemorative issue, Celebrating Prince, PEOPLE reflects on the life and music of the legendary musician. The 96-page book features rare photos and remembrances from his friends, including producer Jimmy Jam who worked closely with Prince and knew him since their childhood.

“I remember when [Prince] came up with wearing the purple trench coat in the ‘80s,” Jam said in his remembrance. “He just always looked like a rock star. He had this big Afro, and even if you didn’t know who he was, you’d just look at him and think, “The kid has to be a star.””

Interesting, thanks for posting, I´ll see if I can find this somewhere.

Have you bought it? Do you think it´s worth buying or is the content just the same ol´ same ol ?

I never buy these things. They're just money grabs and rarely have something new to offer. They're also often riddles with the simplest of errors that could be fact checked before making it a publication. I saw the link on Twitter and brought the 411 over here.

Would anybody who has the first print and this reissue be willing to elaborate on what was added/what's new?

Thanks.

Probably not nothing new that all Prince fans around the world have not seen and read.

I bought it. Went in for Cheerios and there he was, next to the magazines about the Douglas family and drug parties, Matt Lauer and rape stories and Elton John's tell all stories...Celebrating Prince, An Intimate Tribute...I thought good for him! No one accusing him of any negativity (no, I don't think P was perfect), no drama, just a celebration of him. So, I bought it...no regrets. 💜
