LAST CHANCE FOR QUESTIONS. THREAD CLOSES TONIGHT AT MIDNIGHT!!

THIS JUST IN!

We are pleased to announce that Prince's sister, Sharon Nelson, has agreed to answer questions submitted by members of prince.org! She stated that she appreciates the longevity of our site and our loyalty to her brother.

I will leave this thread open for one week (starting today) to post your respectful questions (and on topic comments) to her and she will do her best to answer what she can.

AS SHE WILL BE VIEWING THIS THREAD, ANY MEMBER WHO POSTS A QUESTION DEEMED DISRESPECTFUL OR 'OUT OF LINE' WILL BE DEALT WITH SEVERELY AND THEIR QUESTION DELETED! PLEASE HONOR HER (AND THE ORG) WITH RESPECTFUL DIALOGUE.

This is the first time a family member will be interviewed with a fansite community and we are so honored to be the site she is entrusting to do so. Again, please be on your best behavior.

Thank you, June7
[PRINCE 4EVER!]

[June7, "ModGod"]

the "follow up" album remasters, to the newly Purple Rain Expanded 3Cd/1Dvd..?

please on behalf of the Prince community, will you make sure it will be these albums, in case you can have some kind of influence on future releases from Warner :

1. 1999 remaster with outtakes maybe

2. Around The World In A Day with the brilliant extended versions (Rapberry Beret, Paisley Park (song), America, Pop Life, She's Always In My Hair, & Hello)

3. Parade and bonus disc

4. Sign O' The Times, bonus, outtakes, incl. the movie?

5. Lovesexy and bonus


I really hope these will have a remaster treatment, these brillaint "works of art" truly deserves it.

Thanks, Sharon, in case my "?'s" are relevant. heart

Prince 4Ever. heart

Hello Ms. Nelson!

I have two questions:

This is one you probably get asked constantly, but do you know what the next Vault release will be? And can you give us any more information about the rumors of the 1983 First Avenue Benefit Concert DVD being shopped around?

And secondly, what do you wish the world knew about Prince that they don't know already?

Judicial obstacles notwithstanding, is there a clear vision with the Estate of what should happen with Prince's released material?

What do you think should or could happen with it?

Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
Lots of love.

Will the estate consider a premium subscriber service for hardcore fans (similar to Prince's own NPG Music Club) to facilitate the release of Prince's later work and other projects (Welcome 2 America, Black is the New Black, Phase 3, etc.) that would predominantly appeal to those who know and have followed Prince's work most closely?

Hello Sharon. My condolences to you and your family. Missing your brother so much. It's thoughtful and kind of you to take the time to speak with us. Thank you for this.

1-Are there really only 50 pages of Prince's memoirs, and will it ever be published?

2-What's next on the list of Vault materials to be released?

3-Please tell me there really is another Vanity Six album, and if so, are there plans to release it?

Will the estate release NPG material such as Black as The New Black independently of as Prince was doing with NPG. Records

Hey Sharon,
.
Thanks for taking our questions. I'm so sorry for the loss of your brother. I feel like you have all our deepest condolences.
.
I was wondering what the current state of the music left in the vault is? Has it been catalogued, or digitized? There are rumors that much of the music from the 80s has been degraded or damaged by time. Do you have any knowledge of how it's held up?
.
Again, thanks for taking the time to read these questions.

Hi, condolences to you and your family. When did your family first realize Prince's talents? Did your family have any idea when he was younger how enormously talented he was, and how his talent would influence the world? When did you all first notice his talent?

Hi Sharon.

Thanks for taking the time to do this and my heartfelt condolences for the loss of your brother whom we all miss immeasurably.

Until recently, Paisley Park were having viewings of some unreleased live shows. Seeing material like that is a dream for many of us. Will such shows ever be made available to purchase in one form or another? Most of us can't get to Paisley Park to see them.

There's money burning a hole in my pocket for
Whatever the Estate puts out.

Do you have anything to do with his YouTube channel? If so, when can we expect to see more content?? It would be wonderful if all his "official" music videos would finally be available for fans to enjoy. For starters.

Hi Sharon,

I'm so looking forward to the arrival of The John L. Nelson Project in October. Will it be available for purchase on digital platforms like iTunes and in the official Paisley Park store? What about physical formats (CDs, vinyls)?


Thank you so much.

Hey Sharon - deepest sympathies to you for the loss of your sweet brother.

During his career, Prince made many private donations and charitable acts to help out others - can you share any examples of these that we might not know about already?

Peace. Xx

Hi Sharon,

I just wanted to say my deepest condolences to yourself and your family.

As much as Prince's passing has hurt us, I can't imagine how you're all feeling but rest assured we're always here with you.

Much LOVE.

I'm very curious about how you and your siblings got along growing up. Many siblings don't get along with each other. How close were you all?

Hello Sharon,

Could you please please please elaborate on the state of Prince's vaults, is there any work being done to preserve the contents and are their any plans of releasing archival projects like the Bob Dylan sets or The Beatles sets? With singles, promo's, testpressing versions of songs and of course outtakes and video releases (Blu-ray or DVD) all remastered by professionals who understand and steer clear of the horrors of the "loudness wars"?

Greets and thank you for taking the time to answers our questions.

Hi Sharon Nelson! hug

Thanks for considering our questions!

We know Prince was often writing poetry along with lyrics of course. He also displayed an interest in photography. WOuld there ever be a chance we'd see a book with his photography and poetry together. Tha would be quite a special item. I, for one, would love to see the world through his camera lens. Just a thought smile

Dear Sharon,

tons of Prince-bootlegs are circulating on the internet.

Currently it seems that some stuff is quite easily available.

Sharing bootlegs is imho a way of showing respect to the work of your brother (as long as no one makes money with it).

Are there discussions among the community of heirs how to deal with that in the future?

What should be tolerated and accepted- in your opinion - when it comes to sharing Prince-bootlegs?

Hi Sharon, this is more of a request than a question. It would be so nice if we had an official Prince website. A website where people could purchase past and future music, videos, official merchandise, tickets to Paisley Park. Do you know if any work is being done on that front?

Ms. Nelson,

Thank you very much for being willing to share your time with us and for doing everything within your power to honor and protect your brother’s musical legacy. I pray for you and your family’s strength and peace along this challenging journey.

If at all possible, would you be able to share a bit of information on what your brother was like as a child; a family story/experience that somewhat typifies or speaks to what he was like? Once again, thank you so much for doing this.

if i were to ever write down my life story,
i could truly say with all the fame and glory,
i was just a piece of clay in need of the potter’s hand,
’cause when you whispered in my ear
the words i so now understand

This would be wonderful. A book with the pages Prince had already written (both submited and the ones written but yet to be submitted), poetry, written down thoughts, letters, photos of favourite items (like stuff sent out by fans that he kept, fan letters, mementos from tours and places and friends that he personally kept) and especially photographs taken by him. <3

Dear Sharon,

We mourn the end of life journey of one of the greatest Souls of 20th century.

Thank you for this opportunity to get a light of sun and to know him better.

I have a few questions:

- What Prince was like out of stardom life (i.e. your brother)?

- ewgarding his sence of humour: what it a sway to test people in a way of creative thinking and honesty?

- what were his favourite movies (i.e. comedy, tragedy)?

- did he ever talk or believe reincarnaiton?

- did he think the Eart is flat? icon_smile.gif

- could you be sok ind to share any interesting story when he was NOT recognized by public and surprised by that?

Many thanks in advance.

Best regards from Ukraine,

Denys
