When Prince died, just over a year ago, I first heard the news as I turned up for a Thursday quiz at the Argyle Bar.
To my surprise, Prince featured in the picture round that night. Obviously I hadn’t planned it. My quiz scheduling was nothing to do with the death of The Artist.
Anyway, next thing you know a year has sped by. Prince was never one of my favourites so I hardly ever thought of him or his demies.
But then, exactly one year later (one day out – but still a Thursday) – he turns up again on his death anniversary, again at the Argyle Bar, this time in the music round.
Again, not scheduled deliberately. I’d forgotten all about Prince being dead and I program the music and picture rounds a month ahead anyway.
Pure Purple Heebie Jeebies.
Cool down Prince, ya mad ghost.
