I guess I just do not get this guy. He did not want to be in the group. He reformed against Prince's wishes and now he is on his jock. eek

thumbs up!

The true depth of Prince’s work came to light around the time of his passing, with hundreds of demo’s and unpublished songs being found, not to mention the amount of songs he wrote for other artists.

“I’ve never seen anything like it. His work ethic was second to none. It sure taught me a lesson.

I actually do not think he is lying about patching things up with Prince over the Family but we know Prince was not happy about the Family reunion and did let them use the name. He even admits they were chummy.

I loved their playful back in forth when they did a song making fun of Purple & Gold and Prince played Mutiny. Like when Sheila E did her video of Prince with all the smoke

.

“That was 30 years ago… It’s understandable; he hand picked me, and I ended up splitting. I’d be pissed too.

“Years later, I was spending a lot of time at Paisley Park (Prince’s private estate) with my brother Ricky, who was a producer there. I’d end up on some records there. If Prince didn’t like me, I would have never have been let in.

“We didn’t speak much during that period of time, but when Ricky’s contract was up and we moved out, I ended up writing Prince a letter saying ‘Look, I know we haven’t seen eye to eye, but I gotta tell you, I appreciate everything you’ve done for me and my family. It certainly doesn’t go unnoticed.’

“Next day I get a phone call, Prince asked me back into his house and asked if I wanted to join his band. We met up, ended up having a great laugh, and it opened the door for healing. We weren’t best friends by any means, but we had a lot of great conversations. It was great to get closure.”

.

Great interview

Who decided that Paul should be called ST PAUL? Was it Prince's or Paul's idea? Is he religious? Maybe they thought it sounded better? In the photo posted he looks like Dustin Hoffman with facial hair only younger and more handsome.

I'm sure it was Prince. His name is a play on the twin cities. St. Paul, MN and Minneapolis.
