Tastemakers At Work
I'm out the 2nd-7th in California... sorry. hello everyone.
The next Thursday in May perhaps? Politi, you are traveling a lot these day, what's a good week for you and we will go from there? I'm gearing up for the Prince show. Pat asked me last weekend what other artist I would pay $250 to see at The Show Box and there may be quite a few. The leaders for me would be Tom Waits, Radiohead and Bruce Springsteen. You guys?
Oooh....you're going to Prince. Is anyone else going?I was tempted, but then felt completely without money. Since I had seen him twice before I figured I would live if I didn't see him this time around. Now I'm having second thoughts.I don't know. $250 is steep. I'd like to think I am above petty money concerns, but that is just idiotic of me to think that. I am most certainly not.
How was Prince? Did he play The Beautiful Ones? Housequake? Anotherloverholenyohead?Are you still asleep? Even home yet?
Fantastic!! He opened with "Sign O' the TImes" - one of my favorites! Then he went into "Let's Go Crazy" which is the only song he sang from "Purple Rain." He played a couple more from Sign O' the Times - Hot Thing and "I could never take the place of your man". he was all swagger with his guitar and afro. The played a few covers "let's go" to honor Boston and Crimson and Clover. The hefty price tag meant a respectful audience. Everyone wanted their money's worth so there was no yapping. He's a captivating performer and a hell of a guitar player.
Are we doing May 8th?
Though my travel has eased up a bit the next few weeks, looking at Thurs nights, I can't color you Barbra until the 16th.
Pat & Deb can do the 10th. Not the 16th or 17th,
The 10th works for me - I like the idea of a Friday night MC!
Works for me. It may also be the end of an era. I'm putting my house on the market this month!
I can do the 10th, too. Do we have it at Marcy's? To say goodbye.*SPOILER ALERT*Prince's color choices for MC:YES: Purple RainYES: Little Red CorvetteMAYBE: Computer BlueNO: Raspberry BeretMAYBE: Scarlet PussyIs Prince invited? Will he even get out of the limo?
Marcy if you sell fast are you moving in with Deb and Pat?! I'm seeing a Three's Company TV Theme MC!!
Is that the theme where something completely innocent happens in the song, but from the outside or from the other side of the bathroom door it sounds like some super sexy is happening? Something that will get us all kicked out of the apartment.
Jim! You missed the one Prince color song I may just bring to the table.
I'm sure I missed a bunch. I need to get more Prince. I used to have PARADE and AROUND THE WORLD IN A DAY on cassette, and I miss them.
See everyone this Friday! I have the day off so come over anytime. Lets compare sunburns!
This interview is fantastic. Quincy is the man! https://www.gq.com/story/quincy-jones-has-a-story
