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….
