Glad this is getting out there. He was freaking amazing.

My book PRINCE and The Purple Rain Era Studio Sessions 1983-1984 comes out in November 2017. For more info go to https://www.facebook.com/...104195943/ and join the conversation.

Thanks for posting this, otherwise I never would have seen it.

He was such a great drummer, and more than that, a genuinely nice and humble person.

OMG i never knew he had died until today! 43 is so damn unfair sad He may have been the best drummer Prince ever had and he seemed the most kindest person. Truly sorry to hear this sad

I saw Cameo live in 1995 or 1996, the same tour I believe that was immortalized on the Nasty live album. It was a killer show, only too short.

I guess it was John Blackwell on drums on both the show I attended and the album?

Little did I know then than this drummer, whom I probably hardly noticed at the time, would becaome such an important player in the purple world...
