Unfortunately, the legal turmoil surrounding the rights to Prince's music, as well as the ongoing investigation into his death from the painkiller fentanyl, may impact his legacy as one of the greatest artists of all time. Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars' number one hit "Uptown Funk" was reminiscent of a song by The Time, and Hozier and Este Haim covered The Time's "Jungle Love" at Coachella. "We knew each other for so long, it was like a family".
The latest comes from a former art director that has pulled together shots of the music legend from over a decade and is publishing them along with anecdotes that give glimpses of working life in Prince's studio complex, Paisley Park.

The search warrants show that they searched Paisley Park within hours of Prince's death and found dozens of prescription medications stored in various containers other than standard prescription bottles.
Prince's music also returned in February to major streaming services. Prince meant so much to so many - near and far.
"Just to be around the feeling and the energy of Prince, and we've bumped into quite a lot of fans and everyone seems positive and happy", said Emma Peirson of Iceland.
Picturing Prince has been compiled by Steve Parke, an American artist and photographer that worked with the enigmatic artist for 13 years from 1988.
In public, Prince was vehemently anti-drug, but it's now emerged that he was apparently struggling with an opioid addiction.
Fans are also holding a street party Saturday outside First Avenue, the club Prince made famous in Purple Rain, the title track of his breakthrough 1984 album and movie.
"The case remains open and is being actively investigated by our detectives and the DEA under the guidance of the U.S. Attorney", says Jason Kamerud, chief sheriff's deputy in Carver County. But the valuation of Prince's musical catalog, both released and unreleased, remains pending. "I definitely don't think it's line [with his philosophy]", Day says.
A federal judge blocked a sound engineer from releasing unpublished music by Prince after the late superstar's estate objected. I had just never heard anybody play like that at that age, and I was really impressed with the band as well. "Sometimes, I believe Wes doesn't get the credit he deserves, and I'm thrilled that we get to feature him in this video".
Steve told the Press Association: "My son was first introduced to Prince when he was a baby, just before I left Paisley Park". He was accompanied by his then-new, all-female band, 3rd Eye Girl, whose members happily discussed him and the group in a Union-Tribune interview.
