Remembering Prince II

“It's 1979 and I'm filling up my tank at a gas station in then zero-diversity Chanhassen, wearing my Dinner Theatre waitress uniform—the infamous 'blue serge'—and up pulls a tiny luxury sportscar driven by a little black man with a drop-dead gorgeous woman in the passenger seat. A Spanish Galleon could have dropped from the sky, it was that striking of a sight in that town at that time. They sped away and I was left wondering 'Who was that!?' Only later did I realize it was Prince whose 'I Wanna Be Your Lover' was getting a lot of airplay at the time. It wasn't long before he bought his first house out there which led to Paisley Park.”
