PRINCE Announces New Upcoming Live CD; More At Paisley Park Party

PRINCE at Paisley Park last night made an appearance at his dance party DJ'd by Purple Pam, saying when you hear things like you have recently, give it a few days. Save your prayers up. He was referring to the media reports saying he was still in the hospital when he wasn't.

In better news, Prince re-unveiled his new purple piano and a gold and black guitar with quite the cool carrying case. Prince played briefly on the piano and people were wanting him to play his guitar but he wouldn't saying right now he is fully playing the piano only.

Prince also played 30 minutes of the Atlanta shows from Thursday which he called the best of the tour so far. The artist said there will be upcoming live album from the Piano & A Microphone shows. I believe what was played last night was a rough cut of what to expect. My opinion. The audience seemed to be more up in the mix even for a soundboard recording. I expect that to be changed. One of the songs played was "I Would Die 4 U" culled from the "Purple Rain" soundtrack and was a lengthy jazzy version.

The image above was seen around Paisley Park while the live record was playing.

I have more to tell from last night and you can listen to it now on the Dr. Funk Podcast now on iTunes.

Lastly, Prince was seen around town biking and even stopped in to The Electric Fetus to pick up a few items for Record Store Day. No photos seem to have been taken although several people spotted him on social media. I even posted a photo from when he was seeing biking before on my private Facebook account. It was basically to let people know, even though the photo was not recent, he is good, and is out and about and I'm sure taking care of those things in the daytime to make sure he has time at night to watch the NBA playoffs.-DocFB

Diagnosis: More to come. Talk soon. Much Love. Thank you to Prince and his staff for their hospitality. It was appreciated. Going back to Cali, Cali, Cali....

  1. Such a cool shot of Prince. You were a friend to him. That’s what’s important.
    Now back to listening to “I Can’t Love U Anymore”.
    Prince forever.

  2. I think Prince became despondent after the AIDS blind items broke on 4/18. By 4/20 staff was in panic trying to get him help and early am 4/21 he OD’d not able to take the onslaught of what he imagined to come: ailing health and public humiliation. I think whoever leaked his AIDS to the press was guilty of his death.

  3. Well and by now he went up the STAIRS TO HEAVEN to become the newest member in a the HEAVENLY CHOIR. The World is in shock……….. Your Body may be gone but your Legend & Music will never be forgotten R.I.P PRINCE

  4. Listened to your podcast, great relief to know Unc. P is okay..

    Thanx Doc., realtalk man, been humongous Prince fan since 1982(33 years for me)..

    Please report Media Take Out, they have a nasty rumor, (without mentioning Prince’s name of course), that has alot of us horrified, I’m serious..

    If they aren’t sure about the facts, they shouldn’t play that type of game..the heck with what they heard..

    Millions of us love Prince, for MTO to play with our emotions like that, aint cool, especially after losing Denise Matthews, that’s still fresh on our hearts..

    Thanx again Doc., for reassuring us that Prince is indeed okay, accept for a lil cold, cause he’s just COOL…lol

    much love & peace

  5. shes presenting what is I guess a very good idea through Kirkys email, she says it a winner. Idk such things but I trust her.

  6. So it looks me and my girl only really have u in common any more. there’s no consciousness of a spiritual need present at this time, and she speaks of u as if it were 1986 or something. I just don’t get that or says last time in around 2000 u were insane.

    I said an artist like him of which there is only ONE, gets an idea/inspiration and goes OFF the rails I really don’t think it was “RoCkY soil” I think u were just flyin high, puttin a Stauros on the stage (which I personally relished and so bummed missed) but then maybe crashed and now is working on balancing it all out? cause I’m all for long hair, but like in the movie DWP your growing echo system brotha.

    You’ll always be the moon of my life no matter how ya look. Anyway gotta come out for this summer series I hope we can all talk and be friends.

  7. Please, please, please let this be true & actually happen!!!!

  8. I am so happy the Prince is feeling better. I just got nervous that he was doing too much and hadn’t rested! Thank God he is better!

  9. When I saw his Tweet about having flu and then saw the first Atlanta date was cancelled, I had hoped he would wait 2 or 3 weeks before re-scheduling and not just one week. Flu can knock the stuffin’ out of you!! I am glad that Prince is doing better after having to make the stop in Moline. I’m glad you were able to make it to the party, Doc.

  10. Sounds FAB! IMHO, That Silhouette Of The MoonFro Would Be A Cool Replacement Of The Moon On The PPAD Posters :D. BLESS, He’s Well Enuff 2 Njoy The Fresh Air & Beautiful Weather God Has Been Gracing Them With (Wooo Saaahhhh). I Wonder If There Is A (Purple?) Zen Garden On Those Grounds 2 Njoy More Continued Peace & Well Being & Btw, Those Prayers Were Well Spent ;). Looking 4ward 2 Hearing The Live Recordings From The ATL & Other Shows (Insert Happy Dance!) & Whatever Magic That Will Be Materialized Thru His New Toys. Glad Every1 Had Such A Beautiful Nite & As Always, THANX 4 Keeping Us Informed, “D-FUNK”~<3

  11. PRINCE is so REGULAR a Dude. WHY DO YOU SWEAT HIM HAVING FUN LIKE EVERYONE ELSE? THESE ARE NOT THE DUANE DAYS. HE IS DIFFERENT AND BETTER NOW.

  12. Good to know he is feeling better..

  13. Beauty in Motion

  14. Thanks for the update! I look forward to more of them in regards to Prince.
    I’m a huge long time fan from the late 70’s.
