Prince, 2004 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee

Prince arrived on the scene in the late 1970s, and it didn’t take long for him to upend the music world with his startling music and arresting demeanor. He rewrote the rule book, forging a synthesis of black funk and white rock that served as a blueprint for cutting-edge music in the 1980s. Prince made dance music that rocked and rock music that had a bristling, funky backbone. From the beginning, Prince and his music were androgynous, sly, sexy and provocative. His colorful image and revolutionary music made Prince a figure comparable in paradigm-shifting impact to Little Richard, James Brown, Jimi Hendrix and George Clinton. While 1999, Purple Rain and Sign ‘O’ the Times remain Prince’s best-known albums, the artist’s deep discography is full of funky treasure. - See more at: https://rockhall.com/inductees/prince/bio/#sthash.g32HetAG.dpuf
