Prince is rumored to have a large collection of unreleased music locked away inside a huge vault at Paisley Park. For years fans have speculated about whether the stories are true and just how much music there may be. The BBC has come to Minnesota in search of the truth.

I have always found this fascinating.

Fred Armisen on ‘Portlandia’ and Minneapolis


“I grew up on Hüsker Dü and the Replacements and Prince. [Minneapolis] is one of the earliest inspirations for “Portlandia,” actually. My band [Trenchmouth] was in Chicago but we would go up to Minneapolis because our label was up there. So we’d go play the Uptown [Bar], 7th Street Entry — all the time. We just loved the drive up there and always had really great shows. We’d eat at the Egg & I. It was my first exposure to that kind of self-made and curated lifestyle. You know, like the little coffee shops, and art galleries, people building record companies out of warehouses and their houses. All of that was sort of like, “Oh wow, you can actually make a nice life for yourself.” So Minneapolis was my first exposure to that.”
