New Ban for Morris Day & the Time From the Prince Estate

I remember that Prince wouldn't allow the Time to use that name when they got back together to record "Condensate," but he allowed them to use it for live performances. Now comes this news from Mr. Day that the estate has banned him from using it even then!

Per the estate docs, looks like there's something going on with Apollonia 6 too.

I remember that too and same for the Family, but I wonder if Prince could control if they used that name just for touring? He must have been able to, or I wouldn't think the Estate would be able to.

So,when Morris and the guys play shows,they must now come up with a different name? disbelief I guess the estate feels like they haven't gotten enough millions.What a damn shame.

all these years,Morris has been faithfully keeping "The Time" and their music alive.Prince never had a problem with them doing shows billed as "Morris Day and The Time"...but suddenly,the greedy estate has an issue with this?! mad

Morris,if you're reading this.....please know that many of us have your back.We support you 100%.

Reported in this Variety article.

The Estate should be collaborating with Morris and the others, rather than fighting. Who else is going to promote a The Time super deluxe release (if there’s ever a chance of that)? Ridiculous decision.

Morris Day Slams Prince’s Estate, Says He’s Forbidden From Performing as the Time; Estate Says Claim Is ‘Not Entirely Accurate’

  • fbef296fc846d5e39450d3a643262c75

Morris Day, frontman of Prince-spawned funk group the Time for more than 40 years, has laid into his late benefactor’s estate, which he claims have told him he can no longer work under the name Morris Day & the Time.



“I’ve given 40 years of my life building up a name and legacy that Prince and I came up with,” he wrote in a social media post. “A name that while he was alive, he had no problem with me using. I literally put my blood, sweat, and tears into bringing value to that name. In fact, he booked me on several tours, and many jam packed nights at Paisley Park, under the name Morris Day & The Time. Not once ever saying to me that I couldn’t use that name configuration.

McMillan, a New York entertainment lawyer who once worked with Prince, represents Prince's sisters Sharon Nelson and Norrine Nelson and the estate of brother John "Johnny" Nelson, who died Sept. 3. In a tweet Thursday, McMillan called the decision "horrible. I support Morris Day," adding the hashtag #LetMorrisDayUseName.

even the lawyer knows that this is wrong.

There's no one alive that even could groom a person into a new Morris Day or a new Time, so why do they hang on to the name...?

Pills and thrills and daffodils will kill... If you don't believe me or don't get it, I don't have time to try to convince you, sorry.

Exactly.There are so many great things that the Estate could be doing,with Morris Day's participation and assistance.

That name was derived from Flyte Tyme in the first place.

I feel like there's more to this. It just can't be this simplistic. No doubt more info will come out soon.

Didn't prince ban morris day from using the Time now when he was alive? Hence why they had to change the name to the original seven?

Prince didn't let the reunited Time use their name for the Condensate album.He did,however,allow Morris Day to do shows billed as 'Morris Day and The Time'.

so I don't really see what the issue is.For many,many years,when Prince was alive,Morris and his bandmates went on the road,billing themselves as "Morris Day and The Time".Prince had no problem with this arrangement.Not sure why the estate suddently has an issue with this. CONCERT | Bruces

it's just sad that everything has to be monetized confused imagine going on the road,doing shows,but not being able to use the actual name that audiences know.

Bank gotta take their cut from Morris and the guys being on the road while the estate can sit back and collect their percentage simply for 'licensing' the name to them.. so petty

All because Morris didn't tow the company line. This is the current 'estate' so many heap praise upon LOL

I am not sure what the point is - if it is about money, what do they have to lose by having them make money billed as the band they have always been? It isn't like the ticket sales or new material would take away from any sort of thing from the Estate's pockets on The Time material Prince wrote, right?
