Was Prince left-handed?

...and played the guitar right-handed, like many do?

When he was interviewed by Chris Rock in 1997, when he was talking about not taking the role in MJ's Bad, he was gesturing with left hand. I think he was ambidexterous with great eye-hand coordination which made him a great ping-pong player, guitarist and basketball player. He was primarily right-handed

I think he was mostly right handed. His hand writing is too slanted to the right. I don't know many lefties who can write that way very well. And Prince had really pretty hand writing.

He was clearly right-handed. Gesturing with a certain hand doesn't make you solely that sided. I'm left-handed, and use both hands to talk (despite not being Italian).

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

I think Prince was left hand. A couple of times I saw that he wrote, handed someone something with his left. When I first this was on Purple Rain. You would have the see the movie a couple of times to notcie Prince's hand movements.

I think her was primarily right-handed but seemed somewhat more ambidextrous than most folks.

Ridiculous. All the autograph sessions he did in the 80s an 90s - right-handed. This is not even a debate.

I have no idea what you mean, no do I care enough to indulge the rhetoric.

What I want to know is: Can this thread make it to 2 pages before it's getting locked?

Oh yes, such lovely handwrtiting. Much prettier than most people's. I remember looking at one of the pages of his handwritten lyrics they have behind glass when we visited PP in 2017. I just stood there for the longest time, trying to imagine the day he penned it.

Didn't he tell Tyka one time when they were kids doing homework that he was practicing his signature so much because he was going to be very famous someday?

Good morning children...take a look out your window.
