Dr Funkenberry Podcast Interview with Jerome Benton

Dr Funkenberry Podcast Interview with Jerome Benton. Has an interesting tidbit about Troy Carter who apparently Prince did actually know. Some info about Andre Cymone's concert and the guess stars.

Hopefully Mike Dean or P&B will get to interview him.

Can't bring myself to listen to Funkenberry.

Thanks. Like someone said earlier, i'm sure that an interview with Michael Dean and his Podcast Juice crew will be much more worthwhile, funny and informative, should it happen... wink

Go to Goggle and just put in Dr Funkenberry. I believe you can get to the podcast from various sites.

It was good, it revealed some stuff, it really gave me a good picture of Jerome during the periods

He was not shady or 'telling his truth' or being gossipy

He was definately team 1981-1986

He made a mistake in saying Prince was preparing for Under the Cherry Moon on the 1999 tour,

He lived the good life in France lol he sure did talk about that.
He knew some 'fan known' stuff that Dr Funk should have known like the name of the man who photographed the Family pictures(not Prince)

He is definately in awe of Prince and respect

--He actually knew Prince. I do not think they were best buds but he did have the inside scoop when Prince was alive.

This is true and Prince did use him for things but I don't like when conversations become all about him. Like his recent 3121 episode.

Well he can only tell you about what he saw doing that time. I mean Prince cannot tell us and many other associates have totally clamed up or make fools out of themselves like Kirk.

I always wanted to know what happened to 3121 and now I know he was unhappy with the promotion of the CD so he walked away from the project.

I didn't like who he tried to push an idea that MTV wanted Under the Cherry Moon to fail.
It was suprising to me, that he wouldn't study up on the whole 'Contest' for the Under the Cherry Moon premiere.

And whether it was in Paris, Minneapolis or NYC, Under the Cherry Moon failed because of Prince, not the premiere being in Sheridan. But they way he tried to push it, and I love Jeromes educated reply.

Actually there is a article about the whole debacle. I will try to find it and post it. WB went ahead and put this promotion together without speaking to him about it and he tried to back out. WB told him he was going to do and MTV threaten to go on the air and say he was backing it out.

Total fuck up by WB and black mail by MTV. I believe DR. Funk heard all this from Prince or assoicates. Other associates have spoken about some elements of sabotage at WB.

George Clinton talked about it in his book at lenght.

I thought it was actually the 'date' that he was going to back out on'

Wasn't it Prince's idea to actually have a contest?

http://prince.org/msg/7/4...?&pg=2

But at 2 a.m. the night before the premiere, Prince’s co-manager Steve Fargnoli called up with a flip of the script that would effectively nullify her efforts. “‘Little change of plans for tomorrow,’” Riggs recalled Fargnoli saying (he died in 2001). “‘Prince is going to send the girl with the band in the van and he’s going to drive the Buick by himself.’ I said, ‘No Steven, he can’t do that!’ Then he hung up on me.”

The publicist was no stranger to Prince’s capricious nature as well as dealing with his crisis PR (such as when the singer’s bodyguard punched a photographer around the recording of the charity single “We Are the World”). She knew the star was publicity shy. Prince hadn’t yet met Barber so neither ill will or bad vibes could have factored into his decision. So Riggs surmised that Prince was simply following his bliss—and hadn’t thought through backing out of his prescribed part in a marketing campaign that had already sunk a reported $750,000 into Sheridan’s troubled local economy.

At the same time, Riggs knew cancelling the fantasy date would almost certainly sour public opinion against His Royal Badness at a moment when Cherry Moon needed all the help it could get. “The media would have destroyed him for that,” she says.

After a moment of stunned silence, she picked up one of the three phone lines she’d had installed in her hotel room and called Rob Friedman, the vice president of Warner Bros. movie marketing, who was also staying in the hotel. Roused from a deep slumber, he came up to her room “with bed head, scratching his chest hair going, ‘What the fuck!’” then, informed of the situation, picked up the phone to Prince’s manager.

“‘Steven, here’s what’s going to happen. You’re going to get with your client, you’re going to tell him that he’s going to take this girl AS HIS DATE. If he does not do that, then I’m going to haul Warner Bros. out of here. And all of our promotional dollars are going home. Fuck you. Tell the kid he’s got to take her as his date or I’m leaving in the morning,’” Riggs remembers Friedman saying. (Friedman, who stepped down as co-chair of Lionsgate Motion Picture Group in September, declined an interview request for this story). “Robbie sat there for a minute. Then he goes, ‘That’s what I thought. I’m going back to bed now.’ Hangs up. ‘Prince is gonna take her to the movie. G’night Robyn!’”
