When did this thread get moved to this part of the site? It's not where I posted it, it was in the non-Prince music section, where I post all of my threads.

mods probably moved it because Jesse is considered a Prince associate. Non-Prince related stuf would be like if you posted stuff about Taylor Swift's new music or something like that.

Prince fired Jimmy & Terry because they missed a gig while producing the S.O.S Band in

Atlanta. They were snowed in and missed a gig. Morris, Jesse, and other bandmates were pissed. Monte was so pissed he actually quit.

Jellybean quit too. Prince asked Monte & Jellybean to return. I think Terry was asked to come back too. Only Jellybean accepted, because he said he just started a family and needed the money from doing the movie. Morris only stayed because he was under contract already to do the Purple Rain movie. After that, he was free to leave. Prince asked Jesse to lead The Time, but Jesse wasn't interested in that. Jesse took a couple of the replacement members for his band The Revue and the leftovers became The Family.

I thought it was Jesse who wanted to lead the Time and Prince told him that he didn't think he was 'lead' material?

Did he put your million dollar check
In someone else's box?
Tell me, what's the matter with your world

The video with Jesse talking about him and Prince on Shockadelica is a bit scary.

Jesse seems to be a bit aloof. Some people may say he's always been a little aloof

but he really seems to be in this video. neutral
