Undoubtedly True: Prince Had Balz of Steel!!

He was truly fearless.

Exhibit A: Releasing Dirty Mind as essentially
a set of hyper-sexual home demos.

Exhibit B: Making a feature-length movie with no experience.

Dude. Telling his mgt team that he was going to sign elsewhere if they didnt get him a movie deal. And turning down other labels and deciding on WB after telling them he produces himself and thats it.

c'mon baby, where's ya guts?

Not just insisting on producing himself, but turning down WB getting him Earth Wind and Fire's Maurice White to produce him.

Yikes!

As a neophyte 18 year old Black musician with no leverage, he told the powerful WB that he would not sign with them unless he could produce himself and he would not allow the record company to pigeonhole him as an "urban" artist...and they caved!

^^^ This!!!

.

As much as I liked Prince in his 1999/Purple Rain era, I needed Around the World in a Day.

It really made me like and respect Prince even more.

Fired his own cousin (Chazz Smith) from one of his early bands, to replace him with drummer Morris Day.

when I read the title I felt a tinge of mental pain at what having balls of steel would be like...

Is that a real saying 'Balls of Steel'? That would be so painful

Releasing 2 crappy albums the same day (AOA / PLEC ELEC) that nobody bought, without even promoting one, instead of releasing the long-awaited PURPLE RAIN deluxe, and dying without even giving to WB what they contractually agreed.

5'3', 120 pounds and more intimidating than a wwe wrestler.

If i had a dime for everytime Prince probably stared at someone, didn't blink, only to be proceeded by whoever he was looking at caving to his will, I would be a rich man.

Reviews for AOA were pretty good and I guess it was to bad he kicked off so he could inconvenience WB. I guess slaves never leave the plantation.

"I need someone with steel in his balls, Tony. You Tony."

Of course, why do you think Prince referenced "Scarface" several times; "The Flow," "I Wish U Heaven," more?

It's on the extended version of IWUH; on The Flow it's pretty straightforward quote; give 'em a listen.

I asked Prince what he was planning to do. He told me , I'm going to look for the ladder. I asked him what that meant. All he said was, sometimes it snows in April. - book D.M.S.R.
