New Book - Prince - The Day I Was There

New Prince book being published on 14th Feb 2020. The cover looks fantastic and its a limited edition hardback of 500 copies and you can pre order now.

This is from the publsihers site: https://thisdayinmusicboo...-hardback/

This special limited edition hardback edition is numbered from 1-500 and signed by the authors.


We can also offer a personal dedication hand written in this book.


Prince was that rare thing – a star not manufactured by a music svengali or massaged in the studio by the industry but a shining talent who burst onto the scene and played the game by his own rules.

Interesting that they don't say who the authors are. No thanks.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

The OP is the "author." However, here they're asking for stories: https://prince.org/msg/7/457790

This is the book. I wonder if the person who compiled it has offered contributors part of the profits. I hope they do. Or did they offer up a one-time payment for the stories? Or was it just a free grab?

I'm saving my own Lovesexy story for my own book or essay. And I'm gonna pass on this one.

Just when U think U've got more than enough, that's when it all up and flies away.

No.

Actually, show us all 300 of the fans that contributed.

I don't believe this all that much.

Is there one fan here that contributed ?

Stand up if so. smile

Sounds like apeshit.

-

First sentence is begging :

"This special limited edition hardback edition is numbered from 1-500 and signed by the authors."

Next sentence even more :

"We can also offer a personal dedication hand written in this book."

-

So all they offer us is this :

"...a fan’s eye view through the live career of..."

Well that's what .ORG is for.

And unpublished photographs and an assortment of memorabilia (...), well i've seen that cover picture before.

"this is the story of Prince as it’s never been told before."

-

Next !

Is it really going to be published now? Because this was first announced for October 2018.

Mine aren't in there and these are better than what is in the book. (not trying to brag...)

I did not read the book.

I am not in contact wit the authors.

But my perspective is quite different.

Watch for the photographer who owns that cover image to sue, like many other amateurs have been.

Sorry, was trying to do this while a car passenger with a drunken spellcheck. I'd rather have been stoned.

Edited above. Just remembering how some amateur authors have been sued by the photographers whose photo they "borrowed". Like Ms Kim who angered two.

This whole project seems sleazy. The publisher seems to have built a line of books based on getting free content from fans and using an unauthorized pic for the cover.
