The day when little purple funk relic Prince announced his plans to do a farewell tour with a staggering 21 dates at the Millennium Dome (and after gig parties as well, I'll hasten, the cheeky minx) and another old relic, king Herod (worse tunes, bit on the prog rock side) is exhumed. I love Prince, and will definitely be making it to at least one of the gigs, especially since he has refound the funk since he was last on these shores. This camera pic on the superb Word website suggests the little purple one is showing a little bit too much, ahem, purple, by not wearing trousers. Perhaps I've just got a dirty mind?
