Interview Transcript

Thanks to Donna Kurylak for this transcript.
(Throughout the segment they had Prince's songs playing and clips of his videos shown, I put a break in the text when a video was shown)

"Hi there I'm Tori Amos and my style icon has to be Prince.

I remember seeing Purple rain at the theatre and uhh... I couldn't leave my seat. I was transfixed by that purple coat. I just remember that Prince was able to hold that Jimi Hendrix musicallity and yet was able to have the sexuality of Jim Morrison.

That was quite something at this time; especially in an African American guy who was able to hold the best of the Apollo looking Gods and the most sensual and rhythmic Marvin Gaye and Jimi Hendrix type of rock icon.

I thought he had soul and rock in one being and everything he wore; everything he put on was like a second skin and it was completely delicious."
