OK, I could REALLY be friends with this man. For other reasons besides this interview, Alan seems like he would be just cool to hang out with or a great person to come over to play cards with on a Friday night.

This was a wonderful read, and I'm sooooo glad Alan didn't make Prince out to be some perfect savior who makes no mistakes or bad decisions, like unfortunately some of Prince's fans still make him out to be. This was what I call a REAL interview. No one is perfect, no not even Prince.

Alan, if you read this, thanks so much for the interview.
I am convinced Beyonce's career would not be where it is, if she had dark skin.

This is pretty cool to hear some one from the music b talk about his experiences but my god, almost every damn question had "did Prince" "Is Prince" "Was Prince" "What do you think if Prince" ect. Can you imagine if every day you were hounded with questions about some one else. I do understand what he did and what he does for music folks but gawd!


Oh give me a break - it's PRINCE.Org ya goof lol I'm sure he expected a lot of Prince questions. hammer
heart prince I never met you, but I LOVE you & I will forever!! Thank you for being YOU - my little Princey, the best to EVER do it prince heart

Nana, you rock!


And, Mr. Leeds is true class in an industry seemingly devoid of it.

This was an immense treat.

I also believe a "Prince Live" career retrospective could make for a phenomenal box set. He had so many significant gigs professionally recorded that one could easily document every phase of his career with terrific concert material. Packaged with dignity, such a set could go a long way towards, once and for all, cementing Prince's place alongside the musical giants of our lifetime.

THAT´s a GREAT IDEA!!!


THANKS FOR THE ARTICLE!!!!!

This was quite simply, amazing

Alan Leeds- thank you so much for taking the time to do this. And thank you from the bottom of my heart for my gift! You really didn't have to offer a gift- taking the time to answer these Q's was more than enough. You have made this an extra special Christmas for me and I will cherish the colour print. I know exactly where I'm going to put it and I think I'll post a photograph here at the org to show it in it's new home. Thank you, thank you, thank you! bow

'Nana- This was such a great read. I was excited when I first read about the interview and was looking forward to reading the answers (as you know! wink ) and it has surpassed all of my expectations. You have done an amazing job and you are an org LEGEND! bow

Thank you to all involved in this and fingers crossed for a book!

Thanks 'Nana and Alan.

I've read this article a few times now (it's THAT good!) and my favorite part is the story Alan tells about Prince playing the new track for him. His mention of Prince singing lyrics right into his ear at certain points reminds me of the video of Kiss, when Prince does exactly the same thing to Wendy.

I think the most amazing this about this article is the lack of negativity shown by Orgers. I'm used to the negativity now, and it's really refreshing that everyone genuinely enjoyed and could agree with the honest statements that Alan made.

Alan was very candid about Prince's legacy and his recent output, but he remains optimistic about Prince's potential to amaze us. I couldn't agree more.

I've never been one to wish for "the good old days" when it comes to Prince. I'm more interested to hear what he does next, and part of that appeal is not knowing that eveything he does will suit my taste.

Thanks again to Alan for the time.

...I would have asked him if he had any knowledge of Prince suit with Warner Brothers and if there was any truth to the amount of money P won. I heard it was somewhere around $500,000,000. nuts


Huh? I'm not aware he ever actually filed a civil suit against WB, let alone that he won or negotiated any huge settlement. On what basis would he sue them? He was the one who didn't want to comply with the contract, trashed them publicly, etc....how did they let him down?

If a jury had awarded a settlement of that amount, it would have been headline news; even if they'd negotiated a settlement, surely I would have heard something about it. Anyone else got any info on this?
