Actress Tilda Swinton has recalled the time she partied at Prince’s house and compared the late singer to Mozart.
Prince was found dead at his Paisley Park estate on April 21.
The 55-year-old actress says she will always be grateful that she didn’t give in to jet-lag one night in the mid-1980s and went with her friends to see perform for “three or four” hours as she was blown away by his “extraordinary” talent, reported People magazine.
“Years and years ago in the mid eighties when I first came to New York a friend of mine took me to Nell’s. Nell’s was the most fantastic club run by Nell Campbell. Little Nell. And I was super jet lagged and my friend said, ‘No Hang, hang on.’
“I wanted to go home to bed. At midnight or maybe even later Prince turned up having played Madison Square Garden for three hours or something like that. And he played for a further three or four hours for about 60 of us. He played about 15 instruments; he was like Mozart. Amazing musician. Really extraordinary,” Swinton said.
