--Andre and his stories 😳 According to interviews he gave already Prince left their high school band to pursue a solo carreer so what band demo is talking about. The only thing he said Morris's mother ever did for them was get Andre and Prince a chance with Issac Hayes and that even feel through.

Poor Andre is kidding himself if he thinks he could have had Prince's career.
The wooh is on the one!

I know he already got called out by Prince's cousin for saying he was the one who got Prince his first guitar despite even Prince saying he got his first guitar from his dad.

Thanks for sharing, Latin. I love Andre, but I don't think he'll ever get over Prince's ascent to musical/sex god status. That said, I think that Andre really loves Prince like a brother...but sibling rivalry can be very thorny. BTW: Andre is aging like a fine vintage wine. He is looking as handsome as ever.

I agree there.
I saw the performance of his with the NPG doing Pop Life, and watching Andre dancing... it didn't connect with the spirit of the song, but so seemed like he was watching a video of Prince doing one of his skippy dances and duplicated it.

I like Andre, but...

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

I find him irritating to say the least...

Every time he opens his mouth,

he tries to make it seem like He and Prince were on equal Ground...

The only thing that bugs me about him is that he doesn't seem to respect his own legacy, his 80's albums are a real thing of their own but he just seems to want to do meat'n'potatoes dadrock these days.

Anyone making money from the legacy of prince while we fans mourn should realise they will get no sympathy when their time comes.A tribute show at a place like MSG wouldve been great,but all these so called stars coming out of the wood work and doing tours is too much for me to stomach.

His new album "1969" is really cool...I actually listened to it for the 1st time on the morning of 4/21.
