I'm 56 (eek!) and am from Yorkshire, England. I'm a qualified social worker and now work for a mental health charity. Like so many others, I first got into Prince after hearing When Doves Cry. After that, I bought every album on release. My first time of seeing him live was on the Lovesexy Tour, truly a life-changing event. I've followed his astonishing life and career obsessively for 35 years, have seen him in concert and aftershows many times (but never enough!) and like everyone, felt utterly bereft when he passed. Visiting the Exhibition was part of an ongoing process of trying to both heal the pain of his loss and luxuriate in the endless gifts he bestowed on us.
