I’m way behind in my “Chasing” only due to being preoccupied with GMA’s launch. I’ve got a lot of catching up to do, so lets pick it right back up with Prince, born Prince, then to formerly known as and back to his birth name. The year was 1984 when he won his first Grammy, of which he now has several. I’m not sure how many artists were making movies and making an album the entire soundtrack before Prince, but he killed it with Purple Rain, and album and movie that undoubtedly bronzed him into the landscape of great music.
