The Rolling Stone article about Opening of Paisley Park.

http://www.rollingstone.c...le-w440966 //// I understand how the family feels but what would make them think that Trevor Guy could handle the back catalogue. The copyright issues alone require a attorney. I also find it very telling that Prince detailed plans for turning into Paisley into a museum. He knew the end was coming.

Intersting that he apparently put more thought into the legacy of PP than the legacy of his music disbelief

Come on, he planned it that meticulously and he didn't think time was short? He was only 57. Nobody details things in that way in the normal course of life.

I agree with you totally but it's just so strange that if he knew time was short, why didn't he prepare a will. He was just concerned about Paisley Park and not all of the other affairs? I just don't understand it.

Why are we assuming he was only planning for opening PP because he knew he was dying or something? Why couldn't he open it while he was still alive?

Sounds like propaganda to justify or market the museum. His emails and notes probably refer to the many different tours that he has authorized in the past.

-- Appolonia alredy said in her Facebook post that he told her about his plans two years ago. Sheila E said the day after he died he had collected stuff to put in the museum. In addition, if sent e-mails out to people don't you think those people would have copies?

I think that he belived he would be alive to see it opened but I also believe he had serious illness going on just the fact that he would tell so many people about it and the whole conversation he had with Apples. I think he just ran out of time to get other affairs in order.

-// If he left a will and designated the music to go to someone you realize that whomever got the music could have turned around and sold it or that a will can be contested.

They found a secret room, and then a notebook with tens of songs. Whoever drew up a will - if still alive - would have to reveal it to the court. But what if Prince had multiple secret hiding places in the building, and they all haven't been found yet? Wouldn't that be something?

I'm in tears reading this - but he definitely was planning his legacy and for him it was about PP - and allowing people to be a part of it.

I think this proves he did care and did think about the future of how hed be remembered, and was just getting started with archiving and presenting his vision for the experience.

sad makes me weepy again.

Exactly.

None of this information even suggests that he was dealing with an illness or knowledge of impending death, let along offer anything remotely approaching hard evidence or proof.

After reading this article, I am more convinced than ever that he left behind a last will and testament. The only question in my mind is this: What happened to it?

It's good to know Paisley Park is going to continue operating along-side the tours.

I know it's Prince, but it's really odd that he'd map out plans for Paisley Park but not leave any instructions for his music... aka a will.

I think it's the phrase "Turned into" a museum. That phrasing gives a vision of a Graceland or a sad sombre place. Paisley Park is actually going to continue operating as a Studio/Venue, but they're adding a museum/tour for fans. Which seems cool.

Is it too soon to start bitching about which artists shouldn't be allowed to record there? If I was Madonna I'd have booked the studios for my next album already.

Sounds a bit like archeologists discovering a pyramid, doesn't it?
I liked the part that said Susan Rodgers had been contacted and she had recieved mails from fans saying they didn't want the unreleased music to be altered. The message is clear. Release that stuff like it is. That's the best way to keep his memory alive.

The other thing is they have what none of us have: emails and instructions from the man himself. I'm sure they will be making plenty of judgement calls too. As fans though we're probably not going to really know which was his instruction and which was someone else's. And people who are naturally skeptical and cynical of those running the estate (or his family) will assume anything they don't like is something he wouldn't have wanted.

The legendary dove cages in the lobby will also remain,


I like this but in a way I feel sorry for the doves, "who in the heck are all these people".

-- Having an illness has nothing to do with a conspiracy. Opiads cause organ failure. Even people with Rxs for pain meds run the risk of organ damage. After 5 months some of you still know nothing about this topic.
