Prince A to Z

Steve Wide (Author), Alice Oehr (Illustrator)

Icon. Pop God. Enigma.

Prince Rogers Nelson’s musical genius is unparalleled; a multi-faceted multi-instrumentalist funk pop superstar who was an electrifying performer and one of the most talented rock guitarists ever to walk the earth (in high-heeled boots). Prince pioneered his own sound, broke all the rules of fashion, defied the music industry establishment and somehow made the colour purple seem cool.

Celebrating the magnitude of Prince’s purple reign, from Alphabet Street to Jay Z, Prince A to Z is densely packed with everything you need to know about the man and the symbol – from the pop hits of trivia to the rare bootleg facts.

Steve Wide is a DJ and writer who has hosted a long-running British music radio show. He has run many legendary indie and retro club nights and DJ’d for acts including Primal Scream, Happy Mondays, Johnny Marr, Saint Etienne and The Stone Roses. In his radio career, Steve has interviewed countless artists, from Jarvis Cocker and Noel Gallagher to John Lydon and Björk.
