There was a Prince panel discussion at the Grammy Museum entitled "Who Is Prince Really" that had Touré’ L.A. Reid, and Susannah Melvoin on the panel. The panel was to have Alan Leeds as well but he was sick.
Susannah was a little late to the panel but the panel was starting late anyway. Tour'e was talking about his book "I Would Die 4 U: How Prince Became An Icon" on Prince and telling us how he came to the conclusion of Prince being an icon in a very tough time period for him to do so.
In came Susannah and the storytelling started.....
In the latest PRINCE spreecast, we thought we had an episode of "Seinfeld" on our hands, a show about nothing. But in little to no time, that changed!
In a discussion I had with Prince earlier this month at Paisley Park studios, Prince talked about Touré's book on him and said that he took one conversation he had with him (Back in 1998) and turned it into a book. "Touré didn't like me the time we talked."
