Prince... please continue using the phrase "real music by real musicians" just to piss off people like Myles matisse??? whatever your name is... you probably make cheating music using other people's music, eh?? Can't wait for the new video... LIVE!!!

Listen up everybody...that lame, egotistical and disrespectful slogan Price came up with, 'Real Music by Real Musicians' needs to stop. Every time I heard Prince say it at The Forum, I rolled my eyes and thought he was preaching to the choir on that one. Plus, being creative and making songs and music in all manners has its purpose and worth .

please don't play any of this latest material at the grammys.. It would be embarrassing for us life long supporters to have to explain to everyone that you are actually brilliant.

@Myles Mattise - Hey I'm not alone! I only concentrate on WB Records era Prince but have a fun time making fun of overly-obsessive and loyal like puppies fams and Prince here! I'll tell you why you wont see any remasters, special editions, or any of the things you've noted - two reasons - Jehovah Witnessism and Warner Bros Records! You should know, if Prince would re-release Parade as an expanded remastered edition today, he'd have to remove the word "ass" from Girls & Boys, and Photoshop that CROSS he's wearing on the cover. And this only but one example. Warner BRos... oh yeah! IF prince were to promote ANY work from his WB era, he'd get paid BUT so would Warner Bros. Records... big time. Thus, he doesn't promote or discuss in interviews any WB era work because the slave drivers (what a hypocrite) would get PAID as well. With all that said, re-think and answer yourself on all those wishful releases that are simply NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN.

This is so low budget. Whats with that shaved head girl. REminds me of how goober geek white rockers would shave their heads in th 90's to look "kewl". No charisma. And I look at all those large photos of Prince, the before-he-was-a-jehovah-Prince... and I think, now them are professional big label money backed projects. But this?

Crikey Prince, everyone wants a different piece of you! I'm so happy with where he is now and what he's got to give - this is all exciting stuff for me. Looking forward to the clip and whatever else is coming our way! Love always from Australia xx PS Love Donna's look, she is so pretty (not to mention unreal guitar skills)!

i can't wait. i'm beside myself. but patience i've learned. prince just showed why he is 1 of the best if not the best gutiarist in the world. even eric clapton thought he was the best. his best gutiar playing is live not in the studio as its a shame the gutiar magazines review his playing on record & not live. a mag just came out for the top 100 gutiarist & his name wasn't there. i'm sorry i don't see the comparasion to undertaker. i enjoyed myles reading your opinion. it was straight from the heart. i have at least 8 or 9 of those films. what's sad by prince not releasing them is that prince is 1 of the most bootlegged artists & with that he is loosing so much money. friends & employees have ripped him off. i don't know why prince is stubborn. i know he wants to control his destiny but he has made to many mistakes. myles what did your friend think of working for prince. i met a guy whom is a friend of bobby z & worked for prince & the guy wasn't to flattering. thank you.

I have 2 theories as to what the live screwdriver video will be. 1) A live performance from the Dekota. 2) A live stream from the the Grammy rehearsal.

You forgot the 'Parade' movie, maybe with some extra added live footage, played after the video shoots for the released singles... Or a making of Purple Rain... why not.

What's up with this, man?? Prince did all this YEARS ago with the same kinda footage in his unreleased Paisley Park VHS production "The Undertaker" with Michael B. on drums and Sonny T. on bass and Prince on guitar/vocals where the actress Vanessa Marcil comes to Paisley Park studios and after sneaking through the hallways, stumbles upon a studio where Prince, Sonny and Michael rip through a rock and roll, Hendrix-y set of guitar laden covers. After ingesting a handful of pills, Vanessa goes on a psychedelic ride while the band plays away. This black and white video with Prince's newest female guitarist made me immediately think of The Undertaker. Prince has been there, done that. AND, with a BETTER drummer (Michael B.) and bassist (Sonny T.). And, while Hannah Ford (drums) and Ida Nielsen (bass) with Donna Grantis (guitar) are way cool in that it's Prince's first all female band AND they've got musical chops, I'm thinking Prince is just treading water as he's been here before with the unreleased "The Undertaker" recordings and "Lotusflow3r". Speaking to a long, long, long time friend who used to work for Prince for a number of years, he's not interested in the Prince that has an organic, acoustic drums sounding band and longs for the sound that had the Linn drum as well as all the wondrous instrumentation and arrangements that made his 80s music set him on the top of the musical map. While I agree with my friend to a degree, I also loved the "acoustic drum" sound of the Michael Bland era. In other words, I absolutely loved Prince's Warner Brothers era. Strange that since he left Warners for his musical freedom, his music hasn't sounded the same to me (or as good). The way Prince arranges, plays all the instruments and records the process all has a different, less polished, less organic approach for the most part. Although, there have been exceptions to the rule, like with the stellar "Rainbow Children" release (except for the lame deep voice narrator) and albums like "Planet Earth" where Michael Bland and Sonny T. with Sheila E. and Wendy and Lisa came back around and added their genius, Prince playing it all alone hasn't had the same sound as his Warner years. Strange. I think with Donna, Hannah and Ida in his band, it's gonna put a much needed boot up Prince's musical arse and while I'm happy with that, the music video teaser in both picture and sound remind me of "The Undertaker", something Prince did over a decade ago. What's up with that? Speaking of which, I don't know what Prince's problem is. I guess he wants his video collection in record stores to collect dust. There's been no new releases lately and ESPECIALLY, no complete music video collections as well as his older films that he spent $$ and talent on. Such a shame. Such a real shame. Here's my top 10 of what Prince SHOULD release on DVD and Blu-Ray, AS SOON AS POSSIBLE...NO EXCEPTIONS... 1/ Prince & The Revolution - Live (Iconic 1985 show, previously only available on VHS, Beta and Laserdisc. WTF?) 2/ Sign O' The Times - (Iconic 1987 film, previously only available overseas and on VHS stateside. WTF?). 3/ Lovesexy Live (Stellar 1988 concert film, inexplicably only available overseas on VHS and Laserdisc and NEVER in the States...WTF?). 4/ Prince & The Revolution - Parade Birthday Show (intended for release, professionally shot in fact, but ultimately shelved...WTF?) 5/ The Beautiful Experience (Wonderful Video album that had many songs interspersed with a story). 6/ Love 4 One Another (Another fantastic video album with songs interspersed with a storyline.) 7/ Gett Off & Sexy MF short films (Very cool short video films only previously available on VHS. Gett Off is a bunch of remix variations on the Gett Off theme while Sexy MF has a storyline attached. Hilarious and cool as a mofo.) 8/ 3 Chains O' Gold (wonderful video album previously only available on VHS and laserdisc). 9/ Sacrifice of Victor (cool, vibrant live aftershow concert, professionally filmed and with special guests (only previously available on VHS overseas. Never stateside...WTF?) 10/ The Undertaker (Badass rock and roll live show with interspersed storyline with Vanessa Marcil. Think "Screwdriver", only slightly better. Only available overseas on VHS...WTF?) 11/ Had to add this...a MULTI-DVD/BLU-RAY RELEASE OF ALL OF HIS MUSIC VIDEOS. And, I mean ALL, which would be over 100 fully produced, meaning lotsa coin spent on, music video productions...all wonderful, most unreleased and collecting dust in a vault, meaning out of sight, out of mind....meaning a few less souls are gonna be touched and inspired because they don't have the opportunity to watch them. Music video release wise, Michael Jackson beats Prince by a mile and that's a real shame because Prince has made MORE videos than Michael. In a music video release realm, Prince REALLY doesn't care. And, THAT is a travesty to his music/video legacy and to his worldwide fan base, old AND new. If Prince REALLY cared about his past musical AND video legacy, he'd RELEASE all the above 11. Since he doesn't, it all leads me to believe that at the end of the day, while Prince is preaching that it's all about moving forward, moving forward, moving forward...he doesn't care and ignores his music and video releases of past. For him to be uninterested in his past as well as disrespectful of it is inexcusable and just plain sad.

Eye think its no coincidence that the video is premiering the same day as the Grammy's. So he will definitely be per4ming "ScrewDriver" on the Grammy's.....Its the ultimate promotion. That will bring it to to the stratosphere....

I wish Prince would demonstrate his Guitar Brilliance more often to more people. "Prince Live Via Satellite" to the world(as Elvis Presley did from Hawaii 40 years ago) would be a good way to go.
