on drums, Brown Mark on bass, and Dez Dickerson on guitar.
Jill Jones, a backing singer, was also part of the lineup for the 1999 album and tour.
His final album, Hit n Run Phase Two, was first released on the Tidal streaming service on December 2015.
Five months later, at the age of 57, Prince died of an accidental fentanyl overdose at his Paisley Park recording studio and home in Chanhassen, Minnesota.
His 1979 album Prince went platinum, and his next three records—Dirty Mind (1980), Controversy (1981), and 1999 (1982)—continued his success, showcasing his prominently explicit lyrics and blending of funk, dance, and rock music.
In 1984, he began referring to his backup band as the Revolution and released Purple Rain, the soundtrack album to his film debut.
Prince's "Little Red Corvette" was one of the first two videos by black artists (along with Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean") played in heavy rotation on MTV, which had been perceived as against "black music" until CBS President Walter Yetnikoff threatened to pull all CBS videos.
