Prince's family should have reached out to his music more

Hear me out here. Prince, bless his heart, related to folks through music. He (in cryptic ways) opened up in his music. It may sound selfish but it was how he truely communicated. Their lack of knowledge or reverence for his work might be why he wasn't particularly close to them. I suspect that one of the reasons that he and his father (as off-and-on as their relationship was) were probably closer than he ever was with his siblings stems from this fact. I say that his siblings needs to get to know his music, should have let him produce their work (Tyka), should get to know their brother better through his work, through the stories from his associates. After all, they are reaping the benefits now. I think they kind of owe that to him. They would protect his legacy and be better in charge of his estate if they did. I understand if they felt he rejected them but I don't imagine that was his intent. Here is a man who worked his butt off to connect to others through his art and his half-sister can't name any song other than Purple Rain as her favorite. If he knew that, I imagine it didn't offer much hope in his heart to communion with his blood. Maybe, he wouldn't asked more about their lives if they had asked a bit more about his. Its time to bridge that gap.
