He didn't need to...

All his studio lp's from 1975 onwards bar one have charted in the top 5 in the U.S.and he's sold more than 150 million records worldwide.

I don't think it had anything to do with finding new sounds or anything like that.

I just think he needed the spotlight back on him.

Co-writes with Prince..



17 days


America


A million miles


Computer blue


Power fantastic


Mountains


Sometimes it snows in April


In a large room with no light


Our destiny/Roadhouse garden


Sometimes in snows in April


Under the cherry moon



Then went on to release(imho) some pretty great lp's of their own and are multi award winners-



"Wendy and Lisa technically share the honor of winners of a Grammy and Oscar for being part of The Revolution, as Purple Rain won two Grammys, and the Oscar for Best Original Score. In 2010, they received the Emmy Award for Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music for their work on Nurse Jackie.[1] They received the ASCAP award for Composers of the Year for their work on Dangerous Minds, the theme to HBO's Carnivàle, Crossing Jordan and Heroes. They were nominated for an Emmy in 2012 for the main title theme for the Fox show Touch.[7]"



"They have also done session work and/or written songs with Seal, k.d. lang, Joni Mitchell, Meshell Ndegeocello, Pearl Jam, Terence Trent D'arby, Lisa Germano, Lisa Marie Presley, Liz Phair, Michael Penn, Grace Jones, Tricky, The Three O'Clock, Uh Huh Her, Sheryl Crow, Victoria Williams, Rob Thomas, Gwen Stefani, Skye Edwards, Scritti Politti, Nerina Pallot, OK Go, Madonna, The Like, Nina Gordon, fDeluxe, The Family, Doyle Bramhall II, Nikka Costa, André Cymone, Kate Earl, Eric Clapton, Bettye LaVette, Ilse Delange, Mac Miller, Walk the Moon"



I mean seriously,who else in his list of 'sidekicks/band members' has achieved as much???



It's just crazy to write off their abilities.


I preferred Mayte . Better looking & Arabic dancer extrodanaire.And did an album that sold well in Spain. Revolution had a good run. Nowadays all computerized beats etc. I don't think he would've got chart success by going back to them. Springsteen.needed to do what Prince did change musicians etc as in longrun it helps u improve. Or u just stay doing same thing. Chart Success not important as improving.

As did Morris Day since the first Time album was essentially Prince and Morris together and those kind of sounds are more characteristic of Prince's entire career.

Wendy was only in the band because Prince was dating her sister and Lisa was dating her...Wendy a terrible guitar player..name ONE guitarist in his band before or after her that she's BETTER than?

its Wendy fault Prince stopped dancing so much and had to pick up the guitar to play all the real solos cuz no Dez or Mike Scott around.

Prince could have challenged Michael for best dancer in the 80's if it wasn't for Wendy no playin self makin him go play the real guitar parts live!

Very good point.Bruce probably considered the E.Street Band to be like “family”.He clearly felt comfortable with them and didn’t feel the need to have different band members coming and leaving every few years.

Ultimately is Wendy wasn't talented, in his works in that time she would not have been adding all the stuff she added, and if she wasn't the guitarist Prince wanted in that period of time, someone else would have been in instead of her.

I feel like not personally liking Wendy, and objectively talking about her talent, are becoming mixed up in this web of thoughts here. As a guitarist/music degree holder, I myself see her talent and why Prince had her in the Revolution

-

Yeah, but they were not in his band.

And he did not even let them do anything within i-his side band.

While Wendy and lisa were trusted for their uncomparable qualities.

Jam & Lewis sure were absolutely wrongly misunderstood and neglected by Prince.

Why ? Jealousy ? Prince's know egocentrical behaviourism ? Untrustfull musicianship ?

Recognising superb quality and not alowing it ?

Well, he sure did all that with Wendy & Lisa though.

Strange isn't it.

And fanatastic Jam & Lewis got to do theyr fantastic game.

Good thing they left.

Anyway, Wendy is a great guitar player, she's just not a shredder. It worked because Prince loved being the lead guitarist. You'll never understand if all you're doing is counting notes and time signatures, I don't know why i'm bothering, Yngwie Malmsteen is right over there, go listen.

I don't think it should be said that he found "better" musicians, but he found musicians that better fit the direction he wanted to head in. He also knew much more time with the revolution was going to stifle his creativity. I remember feeling sad when the revolution was fired in that august of 86, and then SOTT came out and I vowed to never question his musical decisions again. I never have and I regret nothing.

I don't agree about "stifling his creativity" except in the way I was talking about earlier where the band politics was probably becoming a distraction but agree about the rest. Even the Revolution themselves have said this.

The actual question posed by the thread, why not do both, is a valid question though. I suppose the answer lies within whether or not you actually think they had input into the music. I'd love to hear a song like Honeymoon Express with Prince singing and adding his own flavour to it; I personally prefer the 1986 version of Strange Relationship; a future in that direction isn't beyond comprehension or our imaginations, I could see a version of Honeymoon Express sounding like Roadhouse Garden for example, but it wasn't to be.

I don't think the revolution was going to stiffle his creativity

.

the 1982-1986 period shows who they help expand his creativity

remember this period included the proteges as well, which he was never able to express again

.

After 86 and reviewing the SOTT band, I loved them, but I knew they would not be a band for long and when 1989 hit they were gone.

I actually would have looked for an expansion. Even thought loosing Sheila E as a 'frontman/protege' sucked, especially for the 3rd album, I would have enjoyed Sheila Juan Eddie M being added, + Cat, maybe even David Coleman Suzi and Novi

The music was expanding and getting richer, to see Prince expressing the depth of the music of Dream Factory would have been wonderful. Take his time and just showcase. We never got a real rendition of Condition of the Heart or Adore

He had serious trust issues.

Simple as that imho.

When people came to close in his life, he started to push them away.

He had strange love isssues and acceptance issues i believe.

And yes, he was easily bored, so he used people for their (limited) conttributions.

Cause he sort was of limited too, but just knew exactly how to play with power, due to his fantastic talents, skills and stardom position.

All my humble opinion of course.

It’s like that scene in Purple Rain when Wendy tells The Kid: “You’re so paranoid…you think we’re out to hurt you” (or something like that,lol.)

the bottom line,folks: Prince simply gets bored with people after a few years biggrin he always had a hard time developing long term relationships.In an interview,he was asked if he misses Wendy and Lisa.His response? “No…attachment is stagnation”.This is why he kept changing band members,wives,and girlfriends throughout his entire life.

Ha! Did he really say that? Yeah I'd agree with this post, although your Kirk Johnson's and a few others were with him forever. I think it's quite clear that you either lived in Prince world on Prince terms or you were out.

Yes. They should be auto locked.
