Funny to think about that happening but it seems like I remember Apollonia posting that he showed her the vault when she visited Paisley in 2014 so if it happened it would have been after that I guess. lol

This explains why Prince said what he said to Arsenio.

So Prince, whom fought 4 his first record deal & got it, fought 4 a movie deal & got it, fought 4 freedom from his WB contract & got it, fought 4 his masters & got them.Gets a curable illness & says 2 himself ok, I'm done. "Life is a Box Of Chocolates"

I don't recall what he said about the vault. I remember him talking about "The Breakdown." I'll have to watch it again.

Highly doubtful because there were PP people saying they had to fetch him stuff from the vault even in 2014.

Maybe they could remember the code and he couldn't but didn't want to say so he sent them instead lol.

Michael Koppelmann (Paisley Park engineer in the early 90s) on his Prince podcast said that instances like this were his first interaction with Prince when he stared working at Paisley Park. He was locked out of the vault and Michael had to call his assistant to get the combination.

He must have changed the combination every so often. Didn't Mayte say at one time they were her measurements? I may have read that somewhere else.

I don't think so. She said in an interview last year with WGN News that he was talking about taking songs from the Vault and reworking them and that she thought he was starting to do that. She would sometimes post a clip of a song and joke about finding it in the vault and tell everyone not to tell.

It's doubtful that he would give anybody free reign in the Vault.

She told she accessed it and pulled out We Can Fuck and reworked it into Oui Can Luv with Prince. So the Vault was still accesible.

So Eric Leeds is lying when he said that Prince told him to go into the vault and compile a new Madhouse album in August 1989?

Yeah,I recently saw the tweet she or he made about it in November 2011. It said, "Check out what eye found in Prince's vault" It was posted in all caps and with the spelling of I,I think it may have been him that actually posted it..

He could be. It's not like former associates are always telling the truth.
The wooh is on the one!

i seem to remember when contents were intially being discussed that there was very recent stuff in the vault, so someone obviously had access to it. sounds to me like maybe at some point, sure, i could see him forgetting the code, or even just a failure of the lock. but i call BS on that he had no access to the vault for any long period of time. i could see him not personally going in there and sending others in there and then its just become this stupid story of he hadnt been in there/had no access to it. it just sounds like a stupid little incident story thats getting made larger than it really was.

Right. I recall that it was said that they found some of the more recent material as well.

I like her music and I do follow her,yes but I would probably be unaware of her if not for Prince. I found the tweet when I was looking up info about their collaborations and I realized that it was probably he that posted it because of the style of the typing. Meaning that Andy was posting every thing with his consent and at his direction and she wasn't given free reign of the Vault. I remember that some people thought she was posting things without his knowledge lol.
