What a great day to be a PRINCE fan, especially if you are in New York!

It all started as a tweet yesterday from a writer of Rolling Stone Magazine;

Just heard that Prince is holding a mysterious press conference in New York tomorrow..

Then Live Nation posted on Facebook: 

HUGE announcement tomorrow at 3 PM Pacific - stay tuned. (You won't want to miss this.)
Then Moquake.com, a Prince fan web site posted about the press conference and that it is at the legendary Apollo Theatre and that fans can attend the press conference.  Very cool news!!!
On top of that, the snippet of "Rich Friends" a track to be from 20Ten deluxe, is now out in full, as posted on Prince.org early this morning.
So, hopefully the fans in New York have enough time to get there and check it out! 
As for what the news is, our lips are sealed...although with Live Nation mentioning it, you kind of know what it is!
Thanks to the Prince fan sites for that info.   We are looking forward to what he has to say and having a new song.-Dr.FB

Prince Talks About Michael Jackson’s Death

In a french interview, Prince talked about Michael Jackson and was asked about his death and how he felt about it.

The  english translation was posted on Prince.org, a Prince fan web site and here is a few quotes;

"When I played in London in 2007, the O ² Arena, I asked the producers what had been the record number of shows played consecutively in their venue. They said six. I said that I wanted to do twenty-one. During two weeks they refused me, nobody had ever played for so long. All concerts were nevertheless sold out. Since then, Michael Jackson showed me that I should go farther."

When asked about performing the Jacksons "Shake Your Body Down To The Ground", Prince added;

"My singer Elisa has the same timbre as Michael when he was young. And a good song is a good song."

Lastly, the question that many people were wanting to know; How did Prince feel about the death of Michael Jackson?

(Prince, obviously reluctant, does not want to dwell on the subject.) "It is always sad to lose someone you loved."

Well, there you have it. What do you think of Prince's comment(s) regarding Michael Jackson?-Dr.FB
