Neal Karlen’s story takes you on a journey of his professional interactions and personal relationship with Prince. Although he doesn’t get into much of Prince’s stellar music making and brilliant songs - 39+ exemplary albums plus live concert bootlegs, he does offer up a view from his perspective of a relationship with a musical genius of our times. Parts of this book are not easy to read. I laughed, I cried. What I found interesting here was to see so many facets of Prince’s personality and shades of emotion. Although Neal's story takes you on a deep dive some of it sounds like fiction. If you are looking for a story that’s warm and fuzzy or complimentary, this is not it. What you will find is the heart and mind of a complex genius and many of the obstacles he overcame as he took us all on his wild ride through “this thing called life”. Does Neal have respect for his subjects? That's for you to decide...
