Wendy and Prince...Is She Getting On Your Nerves Too?

Wendy M is getting on my nerves. Every interview I read she goes out of her way to claim credit for Prince's creativity. She has a specific agenda in which she feels the need to grab a part of his legacy.

The latest garbage in the Chicago Tribune:

"What Lisa and I were able to do, we gave him permission not to feel insecure about what he wanted in his life. He had "A Star is Born" on his wall? OK, let's be it. He could be exactly what he wanted to be with a group of people who wanted him to be himself. That's when he started to own everything he was."

Cmon! Cash out without all the delusions of grandeur.

Your thoughts?

W&L definitely have their secure place in the purple legacy, but ain't nobody paying too much attention to the "we made him what he is" claims.

Don't sweat it.

Oh she isn't saying that. Seriously, I mean Prince always felt comfortable with women and many people in the camp from Eric Leeds Alan Leeds Bobby Z and other said they tapped into a place with Prince. Even Prince dedicated a song to them 10yrs later that says the same.

Life is too short and you are not going to change anything. Prince is gone.

My thoughts? You are being intensely cynical. Wendy is cool, and there's nothing nefarious about The Revolution going on tour.

Finally, a note of logic, rather than quasi-angst.

"Despite everything, no 1 can dictate who u r 2 other people." - Prince

My thoughts are that when Prince was first interviewed - I think it might have been John Bream actually, but I can't remember...at the end of the interview he told him it was the longest he had ever talked to someone in his life. Now, that might be Princely exaggeration, wouldn't be out of character, but the point remains, we have reason to believe that P didn't have a great deal of experience of real closeness and intimacy with other people when he was growing up...and yes, he was close to Andre, but I do get the impression that that was much more typically dudely closeness. So, his relationship with Wendy, Lisa and Susannah, as a three, and also individually, was actually possibly the first time in his life he experienced that kind of really tight intimacy you sometimes get in small intense groups like that, and the impression Wendy gives of it, and I have no reason to think she's lying, is that he opened up a lot with them, and let his guard down, and stopped feeling the need to be quite so much Mr Rockstar around them all the time...which is what the whole thing about calling him 'Steve' was about. It's not a huge stretch to suggest that that might have helped P feel more accepted and secure in himself, and that might have had a positive effect on his work...also allowing him to be more creatively open to other people. The fact is that he did produce 3 of his greatest albums (possibly his 3 greatest albums) while he was with them, and after they left / he disbanded the group, arguably, things started to go south a little. P was a stone cold genius, that's never going to be in doubt, really don't worry about the legacy, it's completely solid, but he did often benefit from letting people in a bit, and three of the most important people he ever let in personally and creatively were Wendy, Lisa, and also Susannah, and there's no reason they shouldn't speak about that. They all loved that man to his bones, and still do (and that is despite the fact he was a spectacular asshole to them at times). Really, it's all good.

Not like I love my guitar....

My thoughts? People who have a preference for The Revolution and that era of Prince's career aren't going to have an issue with what Wendy said. Me? I agree with the OP.

I think Prince was being himself from jump. He was Prince who many loved and followed before Wendy was an idea. She and her sister have woven tales to make themselves more important and I will add Susan Rodgers to it as Susan Rodgers stans for the Melvoins.

Prince would have been Prince no matter if Wendy or Susannah ever stepped foot in his world.

I am sick of both of them.

far from true far

To these walls I talk
Tellin' 'em what I wasn't strong enough 2 say
To these walls I talk
Tellin' 'em how I cried the day you went away

How did we ever lose communication?
How did we ever lose each other's sound?
Baby, if you wanna, we can fix the situation
Maybe we can stop the rain from coming down

Yeah

In this bed I scream
Lonely nights I lay awake thinking of you
And if I'm cursed with a dream
A thousand times I feel whatever I've put you through

Tell me, how're we gonna put this back together?
How're we gonna think with the same mind?
Knowing all along that life is so much better
Living and loving together all the time

Living and loving

In this bed I, in this bed I, in this bed I scream

In this car I drive
I'm looking for the road that leads back to the soul we shared
With my very life
I'd gladly be the body upon the cross we bear (Cross we bear)

How did we ever lose communication? (How did we?)
How did we ever lose each other's sound? (I don't know)
Baby, if you wanna, we can fix the situation
Maybe we can stop the rain from coming down

Maybe we can't, maybe we can
Stop the rain, stop the rain

In this bed I, in this bed I, in this bed I scream
I scream

In this bed I scream

Yes, yes, yes.

I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

Yes, yes, yes.

Are you equating the greatness of the alblums with commercial success?

There's just something about it that rubs me the wrong way. Same with when she was talking about other musicians he played with and how The Rev was different. I'm sure she doesn't mean any disrespect to anyone else but to me it does come across as if she's placing The Rev as a more important part of his career. I'm sure I'm reading too much into her comments but that's how I feel.

It was so beautiful; he sounded like Bill Evans or Lisa [Coleman], who also had this way of playing chords that were so perfect. -Prince 1999

Lisa was never an explosive keyboard player, but she was a master of color in her harmonies; I could sing off of what she had with straight soul. -Prince 1999

She plays acoustic guitar with me better than almost anyone. The opportunity came up and her name was the first to come to mind. Iā€™m looking for things to juice me, too.ā€ -Prince 2004

I think they definitely helped shape his creative sound at the time. If he hadn't met Wendy or Lisa he would have been successful yes but I doubt he could've made something like "All My Dreams".
.
When she talks about other bands she talks about how they are far better musicians giving them all the credit they deserve
She was only saying that it was the last band he was a member of. Which I whole heartedly agree with.

There's just something about it that rubs me the wrong way. Same with when she was talking about other musicians he played with and how The Rev was different. I'm sure she doesn't mean any disrespect to anyone else but to me it does come across as if she's placing The Rev as a more important part of his career. I'm sure I'm reading too much into her comments but that's how I feel.




I agree. There is a general tendency of The Revolution and their stans to exaggerate their influence but Wendy in particular can't seem to stop herself from being excessively mouthy. She doesn't mean any harm but does not know when to shut up.

And yes, she has directed snark toward some of the other supremely talented people that Prince has worked with. For the most part I can deal with the other Rev members, but I cannot stand her and her sister.

Prince, in you I found a kindred spirit
and for that, I am eternally grateful....IDF
