Oh good grief,

Another song Prince didn't write... Why weren't these claims made when he was alive?

R U sure he didn't talk about this before?

Most of this stuff has been talked about prior to 4.21.2016

What's the matter with your life
Is poverty bringing U down?
Is the mailman jerking U 'round?
Did he put your million dollar check
In someone else's box?
Tell me, what's the matter with your world

IKR?! It's pissing me off now that he's gone all of these people coming out of the woodwork to claim this or that, but didn't dare make these claims while he was alive! What's worse is that many will believe them.😑

Notice that he backs off later about how they would trade riffs and he thinks he used a few things of

Prince's riffs turned up in his music eek

The truth is "Do Me Baby" sounds like Frantic Moment and without the copyright this was two guys jamming and trading riffs.

No he has talked about Do Me Baby but that was about 30 years ago. He stopped that crap for a long time and then he did a disappering act from the music scence.

The only I think is interesting about Andre is that he can fill in the holes about what was going on when Prince left home to the time that Andre left the group.

There is a gap with little or no info for some portion of that time frame.

I'm reading DMSR right now, and this was just discussed around page 100...don't recall when the book originally came out(yearse ago!), but it is out of print now.

Yeah all of these people who really did these songs. Prince lived 57 years and was around long enough for these people to have confronted him then. I am not buying any of it. NONE from none of them ,not even Andre an I love Andre but yeah - NO.
