Description - Prince: a Thief in the Temple by Brian Morton
It is almost thirty years since Prince Rogers Nelson released his first album. In that time he has been a superstar; a recluse; an inspiration; an enigma; a slave; and a symbol. But throughout all these changes he has remained a prodigiously talented singer, songwriter, performer and musician. From the highs of Purple Rain and Sign O' The Times to the bitter quarrels and commercial failures of the 1990s, Prince - whatever name or alias he uses - has remained a compulsively creative force and a unique voice in rock, pop, soul or whatever he turns his hand to.
