Book excerpt: Prince's memoir, "The Beautiful Ones"

Three years after his death, the singer-songwriter Prince is telling his story, by way of an unfinished memoir he was working on at the time of his passing. "The Beautiful Ones" (Spiegel & Grau), to be published Tuesday, was the artist's first autobiography.

Edited by Dan Piepenbring, the book spans Prince Rogers Nelson's life and musical evolution, and features photographs from Prince's collections, including the original handwritten lyrics for "Purple Rain."

In his introduction, Piepenbring writes of how he became involved in a collaboration with the musical legend.
