From the basement studios of Minneapolis to the top of the Billboard charts and his bitter battle with Warner Bros., this honest and sometimes startling account of one of the world’s premier musicians examines his missteps and celebrates his recent reemergence. Since the explosive success of Purple Rain (the album, the single, and the film) more than twenty years ago, Prince has scored Top Ten hits, won Grammys and an Oscar, and finally been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of fame. He’s inspired protest and devotion, and provoked as many questions as he has commendations. BBC Radio’s Brian Morton mines Prince’s oeuvre, unmatched for breadth and excellence, to figure out just what Prince has created. Investigating his many feuds with old friends over songwriting credits and royalties owed, Morton also reveals the shrewd and sometimes cunning businessman within the man who has dared his listeners to think differently about sexuality, love, recording contracts, and assless chaps. Prince: A Thief in the Temple is a look behind the scenes and in the studio with the innovative, fearless, and iconic Prince.
