Sometimes it snows in April.

This is going to be a short blog. There really isn’t that much I can say about the musical genius that was Prince.

The picture at the top is a ticket of Prince’s first performance with his band in January 1979. The title of the blog is from the ballad “Sometimes it Snows in April” from the 1986 album ‘Parade’

The song was written by Prince along with Wendy & Lisa, this introspective acoustic ballad finds the Purple musician recounting memories of Christopher Tracy, the gigolo character he portrayed in Under the Cherry Moon. During the third verse he sings of his hope of rejoining Tracy in heaven. The song was recorded on April 21, 1985, exactly 31 years before the date of Prince’s death.

    I’m a big Prince fan. Legend is a word overused, but he really was. I’m in the process of doing the knockout thing with his songs, but finding it so difficult. Very much missed.

      There is this story, I don’t know if there is any truth to it but if there is it is a pretty cool tale. Prince was a Jehovah Witness, and one of the things they have to do is to confess their faith by basically knocking on people’s doors. There was this couple in Minneapolis who opened the door once to one of these knocks, and there was Prince himself. Imagine that
