    Interview: Paul Peterson and Jerry Hubbard (40 Years Of Ice Cream Castle)

    We sit down with St. Paul Peterson and Jerry Hubbard to discuss the 40th anniversary of The Time's Ice Cream Castle and share TONS of stories. We discuss how they were brought in to replace Monte Moir, and Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis who had just been fired from The Time by Prince. We reflect on the insanity of it all as Paul Peterson, Jerry Hubbard and Mark Cardenas were thrust into the spotlight to share the stage with Morris Day, Jesse Johnson, Jerome Benton, and Jellybean to complete the lineup. We'll discuss the shooting of Purple Rain, the album cover for Ice Cream Castle, and so many new purple stories as we look back at 40 years passed.
