Los Angeles, April 26 (IANS) Late singer Prince’s Paisley Park estate will become a museum.
The home of the “Purple Rain” hitmaker, who died at the age of 57 at Minnesota compound on April 21, is set to be turned into a lasting memorial for his fans to remember the music legend, reports etonline.com.
“We will turn Paisley Park into a museum in Prince’s memory. It would be for the fans. He was all about the fans, this would remember his music, which is his legacy. Prince was always private but would have wanted his music remembered,” The Sun newspaper quoted Prince’s brother-in-law Maurice Phillips as saying.
The singer’s collaborator and former lover Sheila E. shared that he had already begun work on a preservation project before he died.
“We’re hoping to make Paisley what Prince wanted it to be. He was working on it being a museum. He’s been gathering memorabilia and stuff from all the tours, like my drums and his motorcycle. There’s a hallway of his awards and things, which he really didn’t care about too much, but he displayed it for the fans because he knows that they would want to see it,” Shiela said.
