    The Doctor Said You Were Dead and I Say It’s Senseless

    Prince’s death was traumatic for all of us who loved him. But for the people in his inner circle, who saw it coming, it hit really hard. They knew there was a drug problem and they tried to help but all they could do was watch him spiral down. We talk about Prince’s drug problem and what it was like to watch him near the end and how the people who loved him responded to his death.

    Blame It On The Train But The Boss Is Already There

    Blame It On The Train But The Boss Is Already There

    What was it like to work for Prince? It could be Heaven, it could be Hell. He gave people opportunities to succeed and to do jobs that they would not have gotten from anyone else. He changed people’s careers by elevating them to roles they didn’t know they could fulfill. But he could also be a very tough, demanding boss. He could make people cry.

Enjoyed

Really appreciate all the research and stories of how much he changed the music industry and those who worked with him and got to know him as a regular person.
But the last interview with Jermaine Dupri was painful to get through.. he seemed so clueless about Prince ‘s earlier music and came across as a smug immature overly impressed with himself idiot .
