Let's Discuss Morris Day

I know there has been a lot of discussion about the O7 or The Time and their new effort, but I have never seen a thread solely about Morris Day since I became an orger in 2003. I have been a fan of Mr. Day since the 80's but I don't know a lot about him. His cool persona as front man for The Time made him a lot of fans cool His vocals helped to create such hits as Cool, The Walk, 777-9311, etc. So just what is the story of Morris Day? Feel free to contribute any info, pics or whatever you may have about Morris cool

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

I still dig Morris and his sense of humor. I enjoyed his show last year when I saw him perform for the first time--despite naysayers he still puts on a good show. hmph!

I met Morris briefly in 2006 when they did the show in Vegas the night before the Tamar shows. It was right before the show so he was a little preoccupied but he was friendly albeit low key. I got the impression that he's nothing like his public persona.

I think you are right cuz he has kept a low profile over the years. I think he may be a genuinely nice guy, not anything like his onstage persona. Although he still can wear a cool ass suit lol

Even on the O7 dvd I notice he's pretty laid back and IIRC, being the front man for The Time wasn't something that he'd ever planned to do even though it worked out that way.

I agree he can rock the suits though...we always talk about how good P still looks but Morris ain't no slouch either, lol

Haven't seen the dvd yet, but he's always been laid back to me. When he was the band leader on michael baisden's talk show he seemed kinda quiet and kinda introverted. It must take a lot of effort for him to turn the time persona on and off.

Oh wow, you were at that show at the Rio the night before the Empire show in Vegas too? So was I. That was a good show and that's the night Prince got on stage wifh the Time and played some guitar.

I met you the next day at the Empire, the night Prince surprised fans at Empire club, and came out the side of the stage on the floor side, and talked to fans, before the show, and you and some other orgers talked to him. I was standing right behind you and threw in a few words also, and told him the Rio show the night before was nice, but he barely heard me clearly bcuz a few fans were also talking to him at the time. It was nice that he took the time to come out and talk to fans before the show started. Getting back to Morris Day, I will say they performed a good show that night at the Rio.

Yep, the Empire show was unforgettable because that's the night I met Prince, biggrin I met you, Ivy Nathan and Ian the same day. Remember when P was playing around with Tamar at the stage door and he disappeared after some lady yelled something fammy at him? lol

I tell ya, I really hit the jackpot that weekend because the first two people I met when I got off the plane in Vegas were Jerome and Jellybean right in front of me on the escalator at the airport...now those two guys love to chat and were very friendly. We yapped all the way to the baggage claim area.

Then Morris Day was literally the first person we ran into at the Rio before the show. During the show we also ran into Mr. Hayes who likes to mingle a lot. He gave me a big hug because he remembered meeting me in Boston and he is always fun to talk to.

And to top it all off I met Jerome Bettis at the airport when I was leaving! Being a die-hard Steeler fan for over 30 years, that was the icing on the cake.... cool

Good times and great shows the whole weekend.

Babynoz, It was a grerreeaattt wknd! Yes I remember when Prince and Tamar came out.That was on a Sunday, before the second show started. P came out with a camera playing like he was taking pics of fans in front of the line, and he said a few words to us surprised fans lol, Then lo and behold Ms fammy chica USA ran up to the fence and said to Prince "Preeenccce u so fiiiinnne" lol. She looked like she was breathing heavy too. That's when P turned and walked back to the bldg and the fans on line wanted to throw eggs at fammy chica, for blowing their opportunity to speak with Prince. She was very embarassed abd walked away like a shy puppy. lol

Anyway, yes that was a fun wknd because on both days of the show that wknd, Prince surprised fans twice and came out to mingle and chat for a minute, plus the shows were fun. I still make a mistake sometimes and throw up the 3121 hand sign in the air (< ~~lol.. just kidding).

Getting back to M. Day and the Time members, that's great that you had the opportunity to meet some of them in your travels.Their Rio show was a good warm up before the Empire shows that weekend. That Rio show was the second time I saw The Time perform live. Good and fun memories and met a 'few' nice people that wknd.

Morris, I hear, is privately shy anyway. If you check "Purple Rain" just after he and the Time confronted him about the "showdown" and Prince and his band leave, the other Time members scatter around while Morris stands at the door looking forlornly suddenly. That was a sudden 360 from the extrovert front man he displayed throughout the film. He did that again during "Graffiti Bridge" lol

"...In 1972, Prince’s cousin, Charles Smith, invited them both to play in his band, with Prince on guitar and Cymone on bass, and Smith noted how they had already developed a twin-like sixth sense when playing together. Cymone’s sister Linda Anderson soon joined on keyboards, and with Terry Jackson and William Doughty on percussion the band Grand Central was formed. By the time Prince started high school in 1973, Smith had left and Prince replaced him with drummer Morris Day.

Nice pics, thanks, so 1970s; the big 'fros, bell bottoms, leather jackets and polyester shirts, vests, studded and stitched suits, plaids, apple jack hats. The days of live bands, real musicians. Morris, Andre and Prince looked like they could have been cousins back in the day rocking those 'fros.

True, Timmy. In that scene it was like Morris was fronting a hard image in front of his band members, but when they weren't around he displayed his soft side.

I believe the director insisted that they (quote) "soften" that scene up. The "How's the family?" line and laughter didn't segue well into the PR performance that followed. So he asked that the scene be softened up. lol Not disagreeing with you about Morris' IRL personality, though.

Seriously, anyone who doesn't catch that moment in the movie--whether they were around in 1984 to see it on the big screen or decades afterwards on VHS or DVD, do not understand one of the key scenes that still makes this movie really great--and not cheesy. It is moments like this--the look on Morris' face after he makes the remark (combination insecurity and regret) that makes this movie timeless...not dated, as others on this board have suggested.

Then the Director made a good call on that, because it was kind of cold when the band made fun of what happened to 'the Kid's Dad', and watching that scene you felt how cold it was, so yes, Morris showing that he did care in that moment, did help to soften things up.

Somehow when I see Morris Day, in his younger years, he kind of puts me in the mind of the kid in school who was the comedian in the class, and picked on the girls, and played practical jokes on them in a fun and annoying way. lol

Morris has done a couple of sitcoms in the 1990's. He should do more of the acting because I think he is a natural. I could picture him with a role in Two and a half men or even a serious drama. Show us what u are capable of Morris.

Morris is more laid back off stage, but he can slide into that stage persona at any minute and have you laughing your ass off. He's always been very Cool to me. cool

Oh snap, I remember that show he was on with Sheryl Lee Ralph...damn can't remember the name of it, but wasn't he a hair dresser on that show? I don't think the show lasted a season and I don't remember the acting being spectacular, but he sure was funny. lol I wish BET or TVOne would re-air them.

But to comment on the main topic of the thread, I've always liked Morris. Like someone said, he made it cool to wear Stacy Adams shoes. And hell yes, he sure can clean up when he dresses, I love to see a confident man in a suit, dressed to the 9's, there's nothing sexier. I had a crush on him when I was little, those dimples he has are addictive. But most of all he has talent. The main reason why I would watch the Michael Baisden show was to see him. I'd love to see a clip of him playing the drums. Wonder if he and Prince had a "drum-off" at one point. evillol

I always wondered what kind of man he really is. All he ever showed us through both The Time and his solo records, as well as the 2 Prince movies and on stage, and even in interviews and friggin' authographs signings (at least the ones I watched and/or witnessed) was the character he originally created with Prince for The Time, all vanity/cool/seducer/superficial-attitude. There must be more to the guy than that!

Has anyone here ever seen another side of him, spoke to him privately or something? I'd really be curious!

Morris is a natural actor. I think he messed his chances in Hollywood after Purple Rain. I read he didnt want to audition roles I guess he feel casting directors should recognisze his acting chops on Purple Rain, lol.

And also I am listening to his 1992 solo album Guranteed. Very underrated album. It is damn shame it didnt got the success it fully deserved. I feel had he release this album around 1990 or 1991, it would had been more successful. He release album the year when gangsta rap start to take control industry and New Jack Swing start to lose its appeal. Big Daddy Kane made appear on one song or two.
