When a then-unknown Prince opened up for the Rolling Stones on the first of two nights in LA in 1981, the crowd threw beer cans at him and booed him off the stage within the first 20 minutes of his set. He came on the stage wearing nothing but bikini briefs and a trench coat.
Prince used the heartbeat of his unborn son as part of the percussion in one track on the ‘Emancipation’ album. By the time the album was released, his son had died of a congenital birth defect.
