Oh Lord, so very, very many.

When I couldn't get into the first Fillmore show and paid a $2,500 "charitable contribution" to get into the second.

The last minute overnight trip to Vegas for the House of Blues show.

The thousands of dollars spent on flowers sent backstage.

But, really it's NOHB.

And if I had paid to see every single live show, I wouldn't regret it. In fact, I regret that I didn't.

Just wondering if you ever heard from him since it sounds like you sent him flowers several times.

$496 on the "51 Hours" 12" single. Wasn't married and didn't have a girlfriend when I got it. My wife now knows how much I spent on it. She also knows how much I spent on the "1999 Super Deluxe box set".

Making love and music are the only things worth fighting for.

£650 on a replica Cloud guitar, in purple and gold. It was my holy grail Prince item so I had to have it eventually ... my wife knew as I sold a few other collectibles to be able to afford it. It sits in a glass cabinet on a purple pellow, framed picture of the great man behind it.

Having read how much people have spent on concert tickets in the past, I've been damn lucky in seeing Prince for as cheap as I did ... a number of the 21 Nights shows and aftershows (including the last night) at face value, the Hop Farm show, Prince's last UK show in 2015 for Autism Rocks ... nothing cost me more than £50 I seem to recall. He was a generous dude ...

Too much. The signed guitar, signed microphone, original vinyls. We won't even talk about the Buick Wildcat I am restoring... I do what I do, I don't need permission to buy something.

Where did you purchase?

Around 100 (after)show tickets, some travelling there (car, plane, train, etc), some gear, some hotels or similar, etc.

Easily a few 10K's? (and that is for arounnd 21 years: starting in 1990 and ending in 2011 asfate did not allow me to see him live after that)

Pills and thrills and daffodils will kill... If you don't believe me or don't get it, I don't have time to try to convince you, sorry.

Without any doubt, a framed pic (Parade outtake) sold by Jeff Katz. Of course, I didn't tell its cost to my girlfriend or friends : they wouldn't understand & would B schoked. As long as bills R payed, I don't care. I'm a fan since 84'..

All sent anonymously.

What kind of flowers did you send?

I'm moving into my own place soon. Hoping to get replicas of the Madcat, Cloud, Symbol and Auschwild...one on each living room wall...Maybe buy one each year and spread the costs out

Generally something purple - violets, hydrangeas, roses, orchids, etc.

That's so awesome that you sent them anonymously. He could then conger up his favorite person at that time and wonder if that person sent them.

Besides concert tickets? Probably the new deluxe 1999 set. But, I don't hide anything.

99.9% of everything I say is strictly for my own entertainment
