Jon Bream talks to Morris Day about his memoir “On Time: A Princely Life in Funk” for the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

The paper has also published an excerpt: http://www.startribune.co...562430982/


Wow, he’s quite candid. The story about him showing up at Prince’s house barefoot in the snow to get money from him for drugs, and lying about needing bail money for his brother - seems it will be an honest telling of his time with Prince.

Just finished reading this book on kindle while simultaneously listening to it on audible. Very interesting take and perspective from Morris Day. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. However, the audible experience would have been a 1000 times better if Morris Day would have done the narration himself! I would have had this audible book on constant repeat if Morris was reading - not taking anything away from Ron Butler but he ain't no Morris Day!

I wish it were Morris too. That would be the cherry. I'll have to see later if my hardcopy came today. But I'm enjoying the hell out of this.



Yep, seems to be exactly what's going on. How utterly boring. All i got to say.

Morris worked at the rental car counter of a Montgomery Ward department store.

He mentioned this on the DVD that came with the Condensate album, although I don't think he said the name of the rental place. It's been awhile since I've watched it.

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 have to go grab my copy. i read two bombshells; one i believe, one i do not. Now i wonder if you're pointing to one of them.

EDIT: Yes, that is the thing i do not believe. Those songs were Soft and Wet, Baby and another. Both Chris Moon and Owen Husney were involved in the writing and recording.

You're not understanding. I'm LISTENING to the book, I DO NOT HAVE PRINTED WORDS IN FRONT OF ME RIGHT NOW. That's Audible. It tells me chapters, not page numbers or paragraphs or lines.

Then you need to solve your own deficiency by buying a proper book.

I downloaded the audiobook from Audible and listened all day yesterday and most of the day today. It is a very interesting book. I learned a few new tidbits about their relationship that I never knew. I also learned that they recorded music at different points in their career. Some I knew about, some I didn't.

I really liked how Morris opened up about his personal life. I knew he was married a couple of times, but he was never one to broadcast his business in the street. He also never really mentioned his wives, kids or family too much. He went kind of deep in parts about his life and I applaud that.

I also loved how he shed more light as to why Jesse was in and out of the group. He didn't go into deep detail, but he did mention the root of the issue.

In the audiobook, it did get confusing hearing Morris, Prince and "MD" (his ego from Purple Rain) all have conversations. The actor that was reading didn't do a good job distinguishing the 3 voices to me.

I highly recommend it. It was funny at times, yet sad at times.

Just finished the Kindle version and loved it. I don't mind Morris using Prince in the narrative. Afterall, he is part of the narrative when it comes to Morris and the Time.
