Summary: "Prince is a music legend. Rolling Stone declares him one of the top-five most important artists of the last twenty-five years, and USA Today has hailed him as one of the most daring and brilliant artists ever. Prince: A Thief In the Temple is a look behind the scenes and in the studio with the innovative, fearless, and iconic Prince." "Brian Morton's insights are explosive and controversial - alleging that all along Prince has been aiming for a biracial music, one that fuses the white boy rock he loved as a kid with the R&B and blues his family relished. Investigating his many feuds with old friends over songwriting credits and royalties owed, Morton reveals the shrewd and sometimes cunning businessman within the man who once changed his name to a whimsical and unpronounceable symbol. Over the years, he's inspired protest and devotion, and provoked as many questions as he has commendations. In this major critical biography, Brian Morton dissects the man behind the artist and shows emphatically why the creator of "Purple Rain," "Sign of the Times," and "If I Was Your Girlfriend" still matters in the twenty-first century."--BOOK JACKET.
