The Legend Maceo Parker Talks James Brown, Michael Jackson, & More In New Interview With Smiley & West!
Maceo Parker did an interview with Tavis Smiley & Dr. Cornel West and talked about James Brown, what James calling him out meant and other stories.
He shared stories on finding recording studios for James and how "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag" came to be.
Maceo also talks about the first and only time he met Michael Jackson.
They also talked about the future of funk and Maceo's answer is interesting. It is obvious that FUNK is going nowhere and it is where the party is.
Maceo's new project is called "98% Funky Stuff" and U should check it out!
Prince played the House of Blues Wednesday night and brought along enough star power to rival the American Idol Finale!
Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, Charlie Sheen, David Spade, Dan Akroyd, Dr. Cornel West, Tavis Smiley, Tony Kanal of No Doubt, Sanna Hamri, and later in the night, Bono.
The celebs went crazy with Prince as he did his classics such as "U Got The Look", "Mountains" and "Let's Work" along with a new song called "U Will Be With Me" that impressed the audience. Tom Cruise and others were on the move all night.
After the show, Tom reached over to Katie with a huge smile on his face. Charlie Sheen did not want to mingle with the Hollywood elite on the 2nd floor and chose to instead chill by the soundboard on the first floor. Very interesting. This was one of Charlie's first public appearances since Ashton Kutcher was named to replace him on "2 and Half Men." Only Prince can bring Charlie out.
Later in the night, Bono joined in the fun watching Prince play until 4 in the morning!
Prince has 3 more shows at the Forum this Weekend in L.A., Friday Saturday and Sunday. We can't think of a better way to spend Memorial Day Weekend then partying with Prince. Good seats are still available on Ticketmaster.com-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: Even Celebs Love The Purple Funk!

Prince pulled a trifecta at the House of Blues Wednesday night, providing over 8 hours of rock, funk, and soul that entertained, mesmerized, frustrated, and added to Prince's legend as the greatest living live musician of all time.
Prince took the stage after 9 P.M. and the upstairs area had more star power than American Idol that night with Tom Cruise, Katy Holmes, Tony Kanal of No Doubt, Dan Akroyd, Dr. Cornel West, Sanna Hamri,Tavis Smiley, Charlie Sheen, David Spade, Kelis, and later in the night, Bono.
