Which band DID Billy Sparks boot out after Purple Rain ended?

That was the basis for the whole story, and we never found out the answer. Morris, Jerome and Apples were dancing away during I Would Die 4 U and Baby I'm A Star, so I'm guessing Dez's band got kicked off.

In the midst of the celebrations, no-one ever thinks about the victims of Prince's success...

I think it would've been funny if even after everything, he still booted the Revolution.

After Apollonia and The Kid made up, she left the group so he wouldn't fight with Morris.

I think it was "The Modernaires."

Women in lingerie who sing NEVER get fired. There is always time for more rehearsal!

In the Directors Cut which contains the deleted scenes a young guy named Don Trump who worked for Billy Sparks came in and told Dez and the fellas, "You're Fired!"

The truth:

Prince sang "Purple Rain", and everyone loved him. He came back and did "Baby I'm A Star" and "I Would Die 4 U" and the crowd goes wild.

Afterwards, he cleaned up his dad's basement and noticed all the written music... Apples was there to help.

He quickly said "fuck you" to Billy and signed with Warner Bros.... leaving Billy with no Prince, no Apples and no Morris... cuz he went on to clip hair on a lousy sit-com. confused

Dez is still playing there on slow nights. sad


Now, aren't you sorry you asked? disbelief
Respect is never promised
Love ain't free
Trust is earned
And it hurts to be alone
This is what I've learned
