I first saw him on American Bandstand when he was 19. Dick Clark interviewed him and he did not say a word. Only nodded and gestured. It was not arrogance; the kid was shy and nervous.

What kind of gestures?

Besides nodding, which is itself a gesture.

Did he mine?

Would have gestures have been considered profanity?

EDIT: They just showed a clip of that performance on American Bandstand on CNN.

They didn't show the interview with Dick Clark but Christine Roman commented on it, saying "Prince didn't give up much."

Were you the videographer?

Head nods for yes and no. Held up four fingers when asked how many years he had been producing records.

Video is here ... and my recollection was very foggy. He did talk, but only answered questions with short answers. Scroll and go to 3:48.
