TIMELINE

  • PrincePrince or or "The Artist" was born Prince Roger Nelson on June 7, 1958 in Minneapolis. Prince taught himself how to play many instruments and self-produced his first LP, For You, by 1978. As his success grew, he eventually founded his own label: Paisley Park. Prince's musical styles have been compared to James Brown, Jackie Wilson and other r&b heavy weights, but as Prince's career grew, Prince became a legend on his own merit with a knack for delivering funk, rock and soul with an occasional pop feel. Prince has amassed 11 #1 hits and 22 Top 10 hits on the pop charts. Prince released a string of LPs throughout the 1980s and into the 1990s in addition to touring, writing and producing for other artists and staring in a few movies. His first 4 LP releases were modest hits with R&B audiences and are considered to be some of his best work.
