"The thing about Prince

Is that he was an incredible Force of Nature,

He was like

this unstoppable comet flying through the Universe.

And for those four or five years we were together ,

we felt like we were holding on -

just clinging on for dear life-

and finally

inevitably

we just couldnt keep hold any longer.

We felt incredibly privledged

-that for a short time-

he allowed

his magnificent light to shine on us"

"Lord have mercy,

that man is a genius of unparalleled vitality,",

"and going into the studio to record something for him was an extraordinary blessing.

But I just love hanging out with the man.

We were together in Montreux last summer. He did two shows one night, two hours of jazz -

[John] Coltrane, Charlie Parker - and then came back with two hours of funk.

Unbelievable.

Afterward he said 'Brother West, do you sleep?' I said, 'Well, I try not to.'

He doesn't sleep at all.

He said, 'Let's spend some time talking.'

First thing we did, we went on top of the hotel and watched some of Obama's speeches.

Then we had a dialogue for about an hour,

then we started talking about music for another hour,

and then we talked politics for another hour.

We stayed up until 7:30, eight.

He packed and jumped on his plane.

Stayed up all night."

Prince has various faces …

innovator, visionary, hit maker, hard-worker, fighter, self-producer,

risk-taker, top-seller, messenger, savior and much more.

Through his music, movies, art, and legacy,

I would love for the readers to find their own personal Prince.

“WOP” is just a small guide book.

“He’s got that church thing up in what he does,”.

“He plays guitar and piano and plays them very well.

But it’s the church thing that I hear in his music that makes him special, and that organ thing.

It’s a black thing and not a white thing.

Prince is like the church to gay guys.

He’s the music of the people who go out after ten or eleven at night.

He comes in on the beat and plays on top of the beat.

I think when Prince makes love he hears drums instead of Ravel.

So he’s not a white guy.

His music is new,

is rooted, reflects and comes out of 1988 and ‘89 and ‘90.

For me, he can be the new Duke Ellington of our time if he just keeps at it.”

“Most of us in the band don’t like the way he was portrayed in the media.

The cause of death?

The typical rock star death?

None of that really clicks.

He wasn’t an avid drug user,”

“I’m making sure people know that wasn’t who he was, and that wasn’t his style.”

Prince gave me so much love and freedom while I was with him.

I didn’t have to change anything –

he just let me play.

I miss him dearly!

“The Time is Prince.

Prince wrote all those songs and performed all the instruments on the record.

(He’d have Jesse [Johnson] do a guitar solo.)

Prince would sing a guide vocal and then Morris [Day] would come in and just copy Prince’s lead.

The Time is just another one of Prince’s musical personalities.

Music is an expression of life, but it’s not 100% of an artist’s output.

Music is only a part of Prince’s life, and Prince music was only a part of the music of Prince’s life.

There was the Time music, there was Sheila E. and there was Vanity 6.

They were his musical alter egos.

The Time was just another version of Prince.

The public didn’t know at the time, because Prince didn’t want it know.

He didn’t want it know that it was him."

~Susan Rogers~

” He was so funny!

He had the best Minnesota accent.

He used to call Byerlys and use that accent to ask if they had fresh donuts, and I’d be screaming with laughter.

He loved to prank people and he loved comedians.

He would create little characters.

Like Morris Day from the Time – he was Prince.

But Prince couldn’t act that way, so he had Morris do it.

Prince’s brand during that era was that he was this mysterious, exotic rock star.

The funny stuff came out in the after-shows.

The funny stuff he assigned to other people.”

"People had told me that he was terrible to interview and

that he would be withdrawn and I wouldn’t like him or he was too shy.

And I found that while he was shy,

and I’ve interviewed a lot of shy people,

I found the opposite.

I was delighted.

I met him a few times after that. I never interviewed him again.

He was always very nice.

I found him to be extraordinarily nice, funny, a little ironic and very, very, very bright."

Tressie McMillan Cottom, Ph.D. is an assistant professor of sociology at

Virginia Commonwealth University and faculty associate with Harvard University’s Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society.

I spent a lot of years wanting to feel the holy spirit.
I tried all the religions in North Carolina and never happened upon it until a Prince concert in Greensboro, NC.
Genius was as close as I ever came to god.
_______
There is the kind of genius that works hard.
You see Michael Jackson’s sweat and tears.

Beyonce wears her hard work like a badge.

They tell you that with hard work you could be great, too.
You put them on your playlist to suit for the game.

"Then there’s genius that makes the impossible seem inevitable.

It is effortless.
You can never attain it.
You can’t earn it or deserve it.
You can only float in it for a time.
That was Prince Rogers Nelson.
Even when he was sweating he wasn’t working;

he was channeling.

Spirit, magic, wonder, awe, grace, the holy spirit —
he was both a master and a vessel.
You could work hard all of your life and never be his kind of genius."

~Tressie McMillan Cottom, Ph.D~

“Think about it:

He grows up this poor black kid on a march to nowhere in a nowhere white town,

and when the news announces "Prince has died"

—there have been princes for 10,000 years,

there must be princes in Saudi Arabia and Europe and Africa right now—

nobody said "Prince who?"

The color purple has been part of the universe since the Big Bang.

Prince dies, they bathe global monuments in purple, nobody says,

"Why?"

I think from a racial point of view,

from a class point of view,

it's such a profound achievement.

You know,

this guy is the one genius

that every other genius says is a genius.

And he was able to pull that off.”

Just had to slip this in smile

"Paisley Park is in everybody's heart.

It's not just something that I have the keys to."

"I was trying to say something about looking inside oneself to find perfection.

Perfection is in everyone.

Nobody's perfect, but they can be.

We may never reach that,

but it's better to strive than not."

“He would drink a little champagne, but no drugs, no partying,”

“He was so energetic.

He didn’t sleep.

I never saw him eat.

He was very small, very thin.

And super stylish in his own way.

He changed his clothes five times a day.

The minute he broke a sweat he had to change. "

"This was one of a series of striped jackets I designed for Prince.

I love this photo.

This is how I remember him.

Weightless,

leaping,

gliding.

He would suddenly appear in the doorframe of the wardrobe department,

and hover

like a hummingbird

suspended in mid-air.

He would utter a few soft words,

lift his toes,

spin on his heels,

and skip off to the next stop."

This one made me laugh- it reminded me of an interview of him in which he was asked “what is the one thing you are ALL the time?”- he thought for a moment and answered “CLEAN!” LOL!

Great thread, Lovejunky- this should be a sticky ;)
