Let's Go Crazy: Prince and the Making of Purple Rain (Alan Light)

Article by annalia

Alan Light’s profile of Prince and Purple Rain’s place in the strange tapestry of the 1980s is fascinating as it is multi-faceted. LET’S GO CRAZY is not a love letter to “the purple one” as much as an examination of eccentricity and exploration of celebrity. But for readers who do want to know more about Prince, the most rewarding thing about this book is that his words are in here, too. Sure, there are also thoughts from key players like fellow former bandmates Lisa and Wendy, but Light understands that no manifesto on Purple Rain would be complete without the man himself. If you want a VIP pass to what it was like to make the record and the movie, from their synthesis to their bombastic 30 year legacy, this is your ticket.
