Remembering Prince

I can’t say I was ever a huge Prince fan. I was never music literate enough, I didn’t experience his evolution/revolution the way people in Minnesota did, and I’m not of the right generation, even though somewhere in the boxes of old vinyl albums, there’s a Purple Rain album I listened to once or twice.

But when I watched the Super Bowl halftime show in 2007, I “got it.” For one fleeting moment, I got it.

Nobody ever looked so cool in the rain. And I kept waiting for him to be electrocuted.


It was a crying shame that a football game had to interrupt things.
