I know his story inside out through various documentaries ("Listen Up!" from 1990 is really dope!) and having read his autobiography, but I'm still very anxious to finally see this! wink It's directed by Rashida as well.

Awesome.

Anyone else watch this yet, it's been on Netflix now since the 21st...? Like I said above, I know the ins and outs of his (granted, amazing) story, but was still delighted to watch this. Nothing really new - and they seem to recycle a lot of stuff like some interviews from the "Listen Up!" doc I mentioned - but lots of behind-the-scenes stuff, also some that I hadn't seen. Just reminded me how beautiful the production / arrangement on a song like "STOMP!" is, for example! By the way, in case someone is wondering why Chaka and Ronson are up there - there seems to be a new (?) song that's co-written with him which Chaka sings. Sounds almost like vintage Off The Wall era stuff. (Ronson also used to date Rashida...)

I watched it last night.....some of the scenes were tough to watch (eg. Quincy in the hospital ICU unit after suffered a stroke in 2015......too close to home for me sad ) but overall it was ok. Not the best doco I've seen.....However, it is a loving tribute by his talented daughter. I give it a 3.5 out of 5 popcorn because 2 hours is just not enough to cover Quincy's career.

Keep Calm & Listen To Prince

I got the email update from Netflix on this feature.

>

1) While attending Liv Warfield and the NPG Horns show the other night, she recommended that the audience watch this documentary (her act is smokin', BTW!). Like a good sheep, I went home afterward and did just that.

>

2) I hadn't realized that Rashida Jones was QJ's daughter. No duh, I guess, but for whatever reason I didn't put those 2 together. I love her work both in front of and behind the camera. To see this focus on her dad was very charming.

>

3) It was an extraordinary behind-the-scenes view, which I appreciated, and great to be reminded of the scope of his career. And my, what a woraholic he has been--his work has been a major driver of his life-force.

Much better than "Like Sugar". biggrin Although, "Like Sugar" has grown on me a little since I've been hearing it on the Target commercials.

I enjoyed it.

I have never been a fan pre 1979, but now I'd love 2 explore his pre 1979 work.

He is a very interesting character.
