You just write like him and have very much the same concerns/issues with bandmates not showing the correct levels of respect in the correct ways that you have divined are necessary in order to prove that they're not making money off his death.

And just as annoying.

c'mon baby, where's ya guts?

Well, the first page ain't so bad. ALthough, I have come to the realization that lines like "he was human" are often just the first line in a list of complaints about his flaws..LOL. I hope we get both good and bad. We'll see. Humans aren't by definition just 'assholes'.

Have you tried CLICKING THE LINK in the first post and I dunno, look for clues there on how to obtain it? Oh wait, I forgot, publishers make it impossible for people to buy their magazines, that's how they make money.

Ah yes, posting imaginary dispariging comments based on an article you haven't read isn't rude. So I assume we're now all free to post fictional bullshit about you, right?

That's sweet coming from you. A person who used to post the most disparaging shit imaginable about the man whose name is on the top of this webpage, a person who has insulted 80% (I am guessing ) of the people on this site. This is the first and only time I will be speaking to you. So, you take the last word--I DON"T GIVE A SHIT.

This is what sux about the net. The "I dont give a shit' attitude. Theres certain forum etiquette, not just here but in general. Some of what youve done is basically 'trolling' in actuality, disguised as discussion. Just because ppl point it out and express their displeasure about it, doesnt make ppl rude etc for doing so.

Read the article. It's OK, basically a hisotry of the Revolution era as told by themselves. Nothing revelatory, the usual stuff.

.

One of the sidebars is about the upcoming Piano album: again nothing you haven't read before, except perhaps the promise of "remastered versions of the classic albums" (though basically that is promised by the Sony deal).

.

Another sidebar is a "top ten" of outtakes, in part chosen by The Revolution (e.g. Brown Mark's favorite is the "White Girls" jam).

.

Couple of nice pictures, but again nothing you haven't seen before.

.

It's all very superficial. Let's hope we'll get more in-depth articles in the future about specific albums (released or unreleased).

Thanks, that's what I expected. And since British magazines cost around € 10 on our side of the North Sea and I'm not very interested in the other articles, I'll pass...

I think perhaps the "usual suspects" have said what they have to say. They have been important sources, but it is time to bring in someone who really knows how to make sense of historical material. Someone who knows how to handle huge archives and multiple, often contradictory, statements.
The wooh is on the one!

thanks Bart, nice thread..

HOWEVER I still can't believe they are releasing this old piano rehearsal... sad


I am afraid they lost it, this rehearsal... is.... awful.... very bad..... (imho).


Actually I thought this rehearsal was a fake..

Until I heard this on the SAB bootleg "Purple Rush (Vol. 2)" Cd 1 (edit, not on cd 2).



Bad choice to release it, not even sure I will buy it (in case the cd is released..)

I am waiting for something better...... pretty please..


Rant over... sad

So part of the feature refers to ten unreleased Prince recordings. You'd think the writer would have enough Prince related knowledge though (or even do a basic bit of research) to not refer to Eric Leeds as being a saxophonist and tour manager...

Wendy and Lisa stated somewhere that they weren't making no profit out of their tribute tour (and that in fact they had to pay themselves for some of the dates). And they certainly did not wait for Prince to earn a living, I think their Emmy proves it.

Keep in mind most of his past collaborators are cursed with the "Mark Hamill" syndrome. They're so strongly associated with Prince that it's nearly impossible for them, talents aside, to be considered outside of Prince's sphere and influence.
Damned if they do, damned if they don't.

Exactly. If you watch any of the W&L interviews (found on YT now) done back in the late 80's and early 90's to promote their "Wendy & Lisa" albums, they were constantly asked to discuss their time with Prince - one cringe-worthy TV host even stating that one of their songs "sounds like Prince" confused Must have been extremely frustrating for them; however, they went on to collaborate with a long list of great musicians, and also do fantastic scoring work - as you mentioned they won the Emmy for scoring Nurse Jackie.

*

When I see these negative comments I always shake my head with an eye roll, as it is clear how much time this group spent with Prince, and how well they knew him during those years. The audio of the many rehearsals in circulation demonstrates this, and these only scratch the surface with regard to the amount of time they spent playing together.
