Who am I?

First question I usually get is "Did you really meet Prince? Are you one of his friends?"

Well, no, I never really met Prince personally. I've been listening to Prince since I was a kid, and just never stopped - always picked up the new album, stayed up to check out late night interviews, and tried to attend shows when he was in town. But the name of my channel is derived from Prince not liking to call followers of his music "fans," since that's short for fanatic. Instead, he called us "friends." So, in essence, we are all Prince's Friends (be sure to watch the Intro Video for more)! 

The Project

I started my YouTube Channel, Prince's Friend, around two years ago. There I bring up discussion topics, review albums from Prince, his associates, and other artists who both inspired his greatness and were inspired by his genius. I attempt to break down these albums and offer a unique perspective for discussions from being a long time listener of Prince's music. 

We have been going through the entirety of Prince's discography, from beginning to end... in order. Just counting his studio releases and not maxi-singles or side projects, there are years worth of reviews and even more material to dive deep into his legendary vault. In addition to that, we bring the latest in Prince and music news, as well exclusive interviews and footage from events not everyone can get to, such as Celebration 2019 (coming soon!).

As a sample, here are a few videos we've done already, including Reviews, Interviews, Discussion, and Top 10 Lists for fun:






What I Get Out of This

Contributing money to the channel is the surest way that we'll be able to continue what we've started and keep it going for a long, long time. Our videos are informative, introspective, and awesome, which has earned us the most subscribers of any Prince-themed Youtube channel (besides the actually Prince channel, of course)!

In the end, whether you give money or not won't impact my passion for making these videos. BUT the extra support makes it possible to:
  • Frequently Upgrade our Equipment (such as a new Microphone, Camera, or setup)
  • Help with expenses for travel, food, and hotel for events such as Celebration at Paisley Park
  • Devote more time to devote to the channel (as Time is Money is a lot of cases)
  • Aid in upgrading the channel in general, such as researching

What You Get Out of It
