The NPG Funk Soldiers (Kat Dyson, Xavier Taplin, Michael Herring, Ida Nielsien and Kip Blackshire) panel in the NPG Music Club. They played “Dreamin’About U” at the beginning of the panel. Talked about the making of “Look At Me, LookAt U” for Hit N Run Phase Two (2013) and The Funky Bald Heads (90’s).
My favourite quotes from the NPG Funk Soldiers panel -
“Everything he does was intended”
“He was pushing himself and anyone around him”
“If it wasn’t good enough he would leave”
Meeting Tyka and giving her a hug gave me a sign of relief. Despite all the negative comments said about her online meeting her made her more human to me. I had a sense of understanding that she is hurting having to deal with this massive task to preserve her brothers legacy the right way.
The opening statement for the first day of Celebration -
“Paisley Park is about Family. The family will soon take control on the estate. Give help, positivity, be kind towards the family. Keep the legacy alive. Enjoy!”
Meeting my Podcast Juice and Muse 2 The Pharaoh family, if they didn’t convince to come this year I wouldn’t have went. I had a moment in Electric Fetus buying Prince’s favourite essence sticks Garden of Eden, I felt his presence heavily.
I wish Bob Cavallo talked more about the making of Under The Cherry Moon as Parade is my era. His stories on the early years of Prince’s career was quite refreshing for a young fan as myself as I could see myself in similar struggles. The Graffiti Bridge panel was interesting when they mention it was more of an visual album which helped me look at the film in a different perspective.
The doves cooing after my pink jumpsuit as I was the last person to leave the Atrium in my tourwas a fun moment because they got real loud. My bad!
