#Bookreview for June #DigIfYouWillThePicture by #BenGreenman

When I saw this book on my campus library shelf for "New Books", I quickly checked it out so I can learn more about this musical genius of Prince, who would have been 59 yrs old this June.   This man has not only impacted music and pop culture but social views on race, sexuality, and politics! Whether you approve or disapprove his lifestyle and ideas, he was true to himself and his music which no one has ever been able to replicate which has its own psychological, poetic, and colorful meanings! Except hearing the timeless song, "Purple Rain" and "1999", I am will be honest that I am not a devote Prince fan but I can instantly recognize him on the radio or television!

He is a caring soul but also a tragic one since his death, which has been ruled an overdose/suicide.  He was open about his passions but very private which may be his artistic source for his music and personal demons that he hid from the public! There are moments when reading this book that are mind blowing for me while other parts I have trouble accepting which conflicts with my personal values and social views! Nevertheless, if you want to know more about the life of Prince and are fan of his music and ideas, then you will enjoyed reading this book!
