From Princes superstardom to studio seclusion, this second book in the award-winning Prince Studio Sessions series spotlights how Prince, the biggest rock star on the planet at the time, risked everything to create some of the most introspective music of his four-decade career.
Duane Tudahl takes us on an emotional and intimate journey of love, loss, rivalry, and renewal revealed through unprecedented access to dozens of musicians, singers, studio engineers, and others who worked with him and knew him best—with never-before-published memories from the Revolution, the Time, the Family, and Apollonia 6. Also included is a heartfelt foreword by musical legend Elton John about his time and friendship with Prince.
Duane Tudahl has worked in entertainment for over twenty-five years and has produced and/or directed documentary programming for the History Channel, CBS, GTV, Fox, Discovery, Pax, the Gospel Music Channel, the Food Channel, Tru-TV, and HGTV, among others. He has also been an editor on multiple Emmy-nominated programs, including Intervention, Unsolved Mysteries, and Cops. He has been writing about Prince and the Minneapolis music scene for over two decades. His first book Prince and the Purple Rain Era Studio Sessions won the 2018 ARSC Book Award for Best History in Rock Music. He has written the extended liner notes for the 2020 re-release of Sign "O" the Times.
The book will be organized day by day in the same fashion as Tudahls first book.
Duane Tudahls in-depth research combined with the vast number of people interviewed for this stunning series makes this new book, about perhaps Princes artistically most interesting time of his career, another must-read.--jooZt Mattheij, Editor of PrinceVault.com
