Who Was Prince? is the ultimate look at the greatest and most mysterious musician of the modern era. Prince was a genius singer, songwriter, guitarist, and performer but how did he create so much music, what was he like as a person, what was his childhood like? This eight episode series is built on interviews with people who were close to him—people who played in his bands, managed his career, engineered his music, or dated him. We explore his multiple personalities, his love of basketball, his insane work ethic, his ability to play almost every instrument, his love of clothes, his turbulent childhood where he left his parents, his romantic life, his baby who died after a few days, and his tragic end. We hear stories about Prince and Liz Taylor, the Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Michael Jackson, and many more. This is a deep look inside the life of an unforgettable man.

Enjoyed

Really appreciate all the research and stories of how much he changed the music industry and those who worked with him and got to know him as a regular person.
But the last interview with Jermaine Dupri was painful to get through.. he seemed so clueless about Prince ‘s earlier music and came across as a smug immature overly impressed with himself idiot .

Shallow Part 2

I have to agree with the Shallow reviewer. There were some good segments but for the most part it comes across as a bad episode of VH1’s Behind the Music. Especially the last episode which was more conspiracy / conjecture than fact.

I was really looking forward to this after having exhausted all other Prince related podcasts (which there are far too few of) but if you love Prince, this is not the place for you. Even if you’re a casual fan I’d steer clear as you might come away with a less than true image of his work.
