Alex pissed off too as his career never went beyond a few R and B hits in the mid 80s, few people outside of the music cognoscenti and African Americans have heard. The only song of his I have heard is Fake and I don't even think it is very good.

Yuppie Caucasians in my section sang every lyric to "Saturday Love" when Alex was Cherelle's surprise-guest a stadium when I was a boy.

They sang-it to each other.. They danced, and screamed the loudest when he appeared on the stage after her opening set back then.

The end part....I could hear nothing..it was too loud. the crowd.

He was huge in England.. Wasn't he?

I am not in England, I am in New Zealand, it is in the South Pacific, an independent nation and some 18,000km from England. I am at 37s, 174 e nowhere near America or Europe.

Got some kind of love for you, and I don't even know your name

Man, back in the day Alexander O'Neal's musical output was the bizness...Period. As far as getting fired by Prince? Well, to be honest, i think he probably should be glad that he was fired. Overall, i think he had a better solo career than most of the Prince associated artists. What mainly derailed Alexander's career was(is) drugs. [Edited 10/14/17 0:18am]

clapping EXACTLY!!! Nuff said.

I will forever love and miss you...my sweet Prince.
