Paisley Park is legendary in Minnesota because of the late-night surprise concerts, often free, that the Purple One held here. Liz’s friend Tim Alevizos, a 52-year-old partner at a creative agency, remembers nights in the early ’90s spent waiting by the loading dock after midnight in the frigid cold for the doors to open. Prince’s hospitality meant something to Minnesotans. “Here, we lived in flyover country, and now we could step up and say we’re right there on the cutting edge with this guy,” Alevizos says.
"Prince’s Former Studio and Residence in Minnesota Now Is Open as a Museum" is from the December 29, 2016 Lifestyle section of The Washington Post. It was written by Jennifer Jeanne Patterson and narrated by Jill Melancon.
