Bangles facts: Where are the band members now, who is the lead singer and are they sisters?
Prince wrote 'Manic Monday' and recorded it as a duet for the band Apollonia 6's self-titled album. However, he eventually pulled the song and two years later, he offered it to The Bangles under the pseudonym 'Christopher', a character he played in the film 'Under the Cherry Moon'. Debbi Peterson later said: "Prince really liked our first album. He contacted us, and said, 'I've got a couple of songs for you. I'd like to know if you're interested', and of course we were."
