    The artist known off and on as Prince was born Prince Rogers Nelson in 1958 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the child of musicians. He showed promise early, according to Biography, teaching himself to play guitar, piano and drums as a youngster and forming his first band in high school. He signed with Warner Bros. Records in 1978, and in 1984 created the landmark album Purple Rain, the soundtrack for the movie of the same name. He starred and picked up an Academy Award for Best Original Song Score. It was followed by other albums that cemented his place in rock history — he was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2010, and received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the BET Awards the same year.
