Editorial Reviews

Review

INDEPENDENT PUBLISHER 2017 Bronze Medalist in Biography

"
By shining a light not just on Prince's surreal last days but also on his humble, troubled beginnings, The Rise of Prince only serves to make the man's career that much more mythic in its beauty and singularity."
-- Independent Publisher 


"Hahn and Tiebert are perhaps the first biographers to approach Prince's family history as journalists and historians rather than rock critics, and they have done much to winnow out the facts from decades' worth of myth created, in no small part, by Prince himself."
-- Zach Hoskins, Dance/Music/Sex/Romance


"Alex Hahn has delivered with a highly readable account of Prince in his 1980's heyday. This book contains a considerable amount of information, yet contains a strong narrative thread that kept me turning pages."
--Hamish Whitta, Prince Off the Record

From the Author

Praise for Alex Hahn's Possessed
 

"Prince's early days are recounted as a frenzy of musical education, with influences ranging from the funky dexterity of Sly Stone, to the tight perfectionism of James Brown, to the spiritual yearning of Stevie Wonder."
-- Publisher's Weekly

"Hahn presents an excellent portrait of a musician and a human being. His writing style is wonderful to read...."
--David Hodge, Guitar Noise
