Discuss The Sharon Nelson Q&A Thread Here - And Only Here

I'm all for discussion and there's plenty to discuss about the Q&A!

But, I'm also for respect and civility - so, I made sure to lock that thread and make sure she didn't have to deal with any of that directly.

I'm creating this thread to allow discussion but, I insist that it remain civil and respectful. Of course, legitimate conversation should take place, not everyone is going to agree with everything said, and I am aware of that - JUST BE RESPECTFUL IN YOUR DISCUSSION. That's all I ask - no demand.

Violators will be dealt with very harshly.

Thanks,

Tomás/June7

Thank you.
It's interesting but because everything is bolded, it's hard to tell the questions from the answers. It all runs together.
Maybe edit to put Q: before the questions and then put'A: before the answers but do not bold them?
Like this:
.
Q: from (member name): insert question
A: Ms Nelson's reply.
.
Etc
.

The first question should have been "what is your role within the estate and do you have any power over what and when material will be released" the vault questions could have been streamlined. Best thing about it is that they're interested in a digital online prince site. That's what I'd like to see more than anything.

That was an interesting read and I'm looking forward to the others. I am dying to know what she found out the reason for the aluminum foil.

I thought she gave the reason but agree it wasn't clear.

Which makes me wonder just how many of Prince's songs were consciously or unconsciously inspired by his dad's music.

I must have read it wrong. I assumed (there you go) that Dad had heard it and played it for Sharon before the album was released. Maybe I'm gullible...

So, as far as the song Scandalous, according to P's sister, Sharon, Prince and his Dad saw a fine girl at a club where they were. Then, P and Francis, I mean, John L. start writing lyrics on a napkin, trading the napkin back and forth as they check the chick out.

I don't know why...but that's cool as hell!

John did an interview in 89 (it's on here somewhere) saying that purple rain is actually his song.

I have often wondered if his father was a silent collaborator.
And that any riffs as adults were them quibbling over music. And choosing
This direction or that sound. Musical mad men in their workshop. Father and son.

"What was your favorite song of Prince's and why was it your favorite?
Purple Rain is my favorite, I heard the melody of that first from our dad."

.
That's an open answer. We don't know when she first heard it. P and his dad we re close at that time.
John did claim to have written it in that interview with Mike Watkiss, which seemed to touch off a break between the two of them.

The weird thing for me is that I'd always thought his Dad had input on Purple Rain. The weirder thing is that I've just had a search and can't find any evidence of this, so I've no idea why I had this thought in the first place.

RIP sad

Sharon is asking the fans to get together and tell the Estate which 2 projects they want to be released first.

I was wondering if we could open a poll here where fans could pick the 2 first ones they want to be released first.

Then June7 would sent the result to Sharon.

Would this be possible ?

now that's exactly how rumors begin ... she didn't say:"dad composed purple rain" ... she just said: "... I heard the melody of that first from our dad" ... so maybe dad just heard it before her and played it ...

but next thing y'all know (just 3 lil org days later) would be a thread over 253 pages with ppl claiming "prince's dad composed all his music" ... rolleyes

the only love there is is the love we make heart

You are not alone. And I got that impression from the actual movie, Purple Rain. It kind of alludes to that.

Thanks to you all for the interview,interesting read!

It seems they can consider fans for what will be released in the future and this is really good.

Is that picture of Prince and Sharon really from Lovesexy tour,?

It seems to me more like Purple Rain era but I could be wrong.

Agree. Hair seems too short and make up is not the same for Lovesexy, imo. Perhaps she got it mixed up.

Glad the estate are considering a service similar to the NPG Music Club to deliver material directly to hardcore fans.

In terms of selecting what we want released, we would really need to select from a poll or be given a limited number of projects to choose from.

It would be great to have a poll on the Org and i'm glad the Estate cares for what we want but it won't be easy to select the projects which would be submitted on this poll.

There are so many of them. Besides, I guess many fans would also be in favour of a Vault compilation which would include only unheard/ totally unknown songs.

Let's hope June7 can work this out though.

To June 7 and Ms. Sharon Nelson, thank you very much.

June 7, you did an outstanding job. I was surpised to get the answers (not in a negative way).

After reading the answers, like many, I wanted more. Is that not a true Prince fan though? Just trying to be silly.

I am looking forward to Parts II and III.

Thanks again for the hard work!!!!

Wait! Did she say they hope the fans can come to a consensus together on what future projects we'd like released from the vault? Prince fans? Come to a consensus on something???

Lemoncrush your point needs to be in bold at the top of this thread, because yes we
Are inferring into her statement. And doing that doesn't not serve the truth at all.
