And I think I see Prince's emotion and I don't know the attitude he had when he was young maybe when I see Andre. Maybe that's just because I know they came from the same place and were close at one time. But whatever it is.... I LIKE IT. razz I think if anyone should take Prince's spot with the Revolution it's him. And I know nobody can replace Prince... just if.

I love Andre, but one of the things that make me look a lil sideways at him championing Prince now, is that he said after he left the band he never listened to another Prince album.

So as a fan who got 99% into Purple culture, it is almost a lil disrespectful to me when he said that

What's the matter with your life
Is poverty bringing U down?
Is the mailman jerking U 'round?
Did he put your million dollar check
In someone else's box?
Tell me, what's the matter with your world

Prince threw shade Andre's way too (see BassPlayer article from 1999).

They eventually put their squabbles behind them when Andre's mother was in the hospital, and Prince went and stayed there with Andre until she passed.

Andre also said Prince invited him to come hear him play at the Sayers Club, and Prince had Andre play Dance Electric with him.

Prince then reached out to Andre when Prince played with 3EG in Anaheim, and gave him a seat on "the couch" and later introduced Andre to the band.

So I think they were all good in the end.

No, I wasn't questioning whether or not Prince & Andre are good, I already know about their reconnection. Andre sang on Dance Electric with Prince & the Revolution on th Parade tour too.

But I mean, when it comes down to past and upcoming tribute shows, I wonder about the material because as of Sept before the Revolution show at First Avenue, he said outside of hearing singles on the radio, he never listened to any of Prince albums after the time he left the band.

I agree, and for some reason, I always detect a tad bit of bitterness whenever I hear or read one of his interviews.
Sometimes I wish that life was never ending, but all good things they say never last. Love it isn't love until it's past. ~RIP my Prince~

yeah or regret?

I remember when he talked 'admirably' about the September First Avenue shows, who it was strange they the Revolution asked him to join them, because he was one of the firsts... But that would have been the logical and realistic thing to do. Andre never called anyone of them to do shows. It was Bobby Z in 2014 who also called Matt Dez and Andre to do a show @ First Avenue

seems they have hung out a bit before April 21st 2016
