Take your picks.

Okay, since everyone seems to have certain favorites from each band, let's play make believe...

Prince just told you you're in charge of picking the musicians, backup singers and dancers (if that's your thing) for his next tour.. but it has to be musicians from his past bands. Who do you pick?

.

Everybody stop on the 1...GOOD GOD! Uhh!

A re-union tour, is that what you ask for?

Wendy & Lisa on guitar and piano, plus Sheila E. on drums (never mind the rest of The Revolution),

Ida on bass (never mind the rest of 3rd Eye Girl),

and Prince.


no back up singers, Shelby is fired. wink

Wendy & Lisa of course, Sheila E. on drums

André Cymone on bass, Dez Dickerson on guitar, Dr. Fink on keyboards

Rosie Gaines as backing vocalist... on about 3 songs of the setlist, though she's absolutely not allowed to sing songs by herself.

Eric Leeds on some songs, playing sax.

Morris Day as backing vocalist, on some songs...

I actually like Cat dancing around like crazy lol

Vanity or Apollonia 6 as backing vocalists for the rest of the show, and they are allowed to sing their songs if they want. Blue Limousine & He's So Dull wildsign

I'd put

Prince on keys for Most Beautiful Girl, The Beautiful Ones, Starfish & Coffee, Future Soul Song, Anotherloverholeinyohead, Sometimes it Snows in April and Adore

Wendy on guitar

Sheila on Drums

Lisa on piano

Brownmark on Bass

Dez on Guitar

Rosie backing but only on Cream and Diamonds & Pearls

Apollonia backing but only for Take Me With You

And the dancers would be Morris and JB lol

Mayte can come and do whatever she wants.

.

No horns this time around.

And I'm gonna need to them to play Laydown, Theives in the Temple, 7, Mountains, 17 Days and Lavaux first.

.

Yes. lol She has a good voice but I think it dates the songs shes on, especially Diamonds & Pearls, although it would sound weird without her. confused

This sounds great to me. Ida is a fantastic bass player - there are some videos of her on Youtube playing solo stuff, demoing gear and that, and I love her playing.

Percussion - Sheila E

Dancers - The Twinz and Mayte

Hornz - Atlanta Bliss and Eric Leeds

Back up Vocals - Rosie and Boni

Piano if needed - Lisa and maybe Prince at times
