Jimmy Hamilton, who was Prince's teacher in his seventh and eighth grade business of music and music theory classes at Minneapolis' Bryant Junior High, said that Prince wasn't the best student in his class, but he was the hungriest. "He was at the band room door at 8 a.m. sharp every day waiting to get let in," recalls Hamilton. "After, I would go in and break up the session and make the kids go to biology class."
He wasn't the best student in his class, but he was the hungriest. Keep that in mind.
