Yet another fantastic review about Marylou's up-and-coming book from a member of the 'inner circle'. This time it's from Atlanta Bliss:

From Marylou: Atlanta Bliss, part of the amazing horn section in the Lovesexy era just got in touch with me .... he's read the book and said:

"Read it cover to cover and never left my chair!! I laughed, I cried.
You really brought the memories back crystal clear in a perspective only a close confidant of PRN could do. What fun we had!"

Hello Orgers I'm pleased to announce that my dear friend, Marylou Badeaux, will soon be releasing a new book 'Moments - Remembering Prince'. Some of you would have heard of Marylou, who has the unbelievable history of working directly with Prince for over 20 years... I have been a close friend of Marlyou's for years (we catch up regularly for coffee/chats) and the stories I have heard regarding her time with Prince are truly amazing. I have been one of the priveliged few who have read the final book (and gave feedback on), and I can assure everyone here that once you start reading it, you won't want to put it down! For those of you that don't know me, I was the 'Australian Connection' for Eileen Murton's wonderful 'Controversy' magazine, well before the internet. I have also been a 'lurker' on here for years, often on a daily basis 😀 In the meantime, below is a link to the newly set-up Facebook page, which will keep you informed about this amazing soon-to-be-released book: https://www.facebook.com/mlbadeaux Cheers - Michael

Sounds like a great read! Thanks for the heads-up.

God is my Sugar Daddy.

Hello Orgers - Here's an update from Marylou Badeaux on her book, 'Moments - Remembering Prince'.

Cheers -Michael S

"A quick update on the book ..... the book proof has been shipped to us for approval. Fingers crossed, all good! Once I okay it, the Distributor will start announcing to all of their online and brick and mortar stores around the world that it is available (that includes Amazon).

Still targeting December 14 as the release date.

Will continue to keep all you great Prince fans out there "in the loop".

Latest from Marylou:


Many thanks to Christopher Arnel of 'Uptown Master Class' for this ...

"I just finished reading your book! I loved every memory u shared!! U did what many are failing to do. U made Prince a human being."



Now that's why this book is so special, Orgers... As I mentioned in my original post, I've read the book and it really does show a different side to Prince that very few people saw.

Release date looking very likely for the 14th of December 2017 😀

I can't wait for this book! It sounds different from what we've already seen released. Sounds like it's going to be a bit extra special and Marylou sounds like a wonderful person.
It's a hurtful place, the world, in and of itself. We don't need to add to it. We all need one another. ~ PRN

Prince in leotard(ish) + jeans. Funny. The last time he wore jeans btw, 1982.

I'm not sure why but Prince certainly doesn't look as excited as she does.

That was for performance. In interview, he said the last time he wore jeans was in 1982. And yes I'm aware that pic was taken around '80. I can pinpoint every era just from his hairstyle.
