I may have posted this in another thread already but it's worth a listen. I think his take will add to the picture of P's development and direction as an artist.

Jesse and Andre also had complaints about Owen back in the day. If you think Andre or Jesse had a long successul carreer in the music industry you are smoking crack.



I do not think Owen will spill anything because he did not manage Prince long enough to know much but I am pretty sure he will not be telling the story that Pepe Willie told about how he did not believe in his artist which a manager is suppose to do as the first order of business. In fact Owen has said over the years he was let go because he did not get Prince a fan which Willie is telling you is not true at all. It is called telling tall tales to make yourself look like a victim.



If you tell on someone else you need to tell on yourself as well. I am sure that is not going to happen.

Jesse Johnson had several hit singles and a gold debut album.Andre Cymone became a "hot" producer in the late 80s,producing Jody Watley's albums.So stop acting like their careers didn't amount to anything rolleyes Your problem is that you're afraid that Owen is gonna spill the "dirt".That's why you trashed Mayte for writing a book,too.Let the man speak and tell his story.










Andre obviously has no problem with Owen.

Andre Cymone and Owen Husney Return To Loring Park



NRA8192.jpg


“The last time I was in this building was 1984.”


Owen Husney is standing in the doorway of 430 Oak Grove, a high-end apartment complex on the south edge of Loring Park in Minneapolis. As soon as the doors swing open and he steps into the marble atrium, you can see the memories pulling him backwards through time, back to when he was a young ad executive renting out an office on the first floor, and toying with the idea of switching back to working on music full-time.


“I moved here in about 1976, and we had just one little office. I think the rent was $120 a month, and I was screaming. How can anyone charge $120 a month? Let me go talk to the manager of the building!” he recalled, chuckling.


Soon after Husney enters the lobby, the door swings open again and he is joined by André Cymone, a musician who Husney would meet shortly after settling into his 430 Oak Grove space. Cymone was best friends and bandmates with a young undiscovered artist named Prince Rogers Nelson, and almost exactly 40 years ago they recorded an unreleased album known as the Loring Park Sessions in Husney’s office and studio.


The Loring Park Sessions have taken on a certain mystical quality for Prince fans in the last few years, ever since Husney found the tapes in his storage space and had them digitized and uploaded online. The sessions were recorded just a year before Prince would release his debut album, For You, and were captured in that hazy and heart-pounding space between when Prince had signed to Warner Bros. and when he would make his first step onto the national stage.


With Prince on keys and guitar, André on bass, and Bobby Z on drums, the trio pummel through a genre-bending set of eight instrumental songs that swirl together funk, disco, R&B and jazz. The songs sound more like a group of Los Angeles session players laying down tracks for a major studio than a group of teenagers just feeling out their vibe as a live band.









--Because he got over it and moved on with his life. Does not change the fact that Owen had a poor track record and I doubt P had much love for his since he was auctioning off stuff of Prince's a month before he died.

That's right and maybe U should move on with it too. U don't know Prince's relation with Own.

I know he did not bother to recall his name on the Larry King interview and I know what Pepe Willie said about how they parted and I know he tried to auction off of some of Prince's stuff about a month before Prince died. Try to think about this for a moment and stop being a Stan for every person Prince spoke to or in some cases had no contact with😳

Get the real definition of STAN hun

I don't STAN for anyone

the point is Andre obviously has no problem with Owen.
And Prince always acts like that, but if he had a grudge that is on him.

Owen still got him in the door

I for one would enjoy reading what Owen Husney has to say about his time with Prince, other Minneapolis musicians, or the other people that he's worked with.

As I've said plenty of times before. The people who actually knew Prince, deserve to have their say about their interactions with him. Us fams, fans, or whatever you choose to call yourself, think we deserve to speak on our love for Prince, and (or) his music. So why can't they ?


At the very least, those people had business relationships with Prince. And some of them had personal, intimate relationships with him. And even though some(or maybe even most) of us have been into Prince for a long, long time(from the beginning), the fact is that the vast majority of us were just spectators.


The point to my little rant is to say give the AA & P's a break. Most of them were just as confused, hurt, saddened, devastated etc, about Prince's death, as we were. And some of them had the added burdens of having unresolved issues, feelings, resentments etc(justified or not), towards Prince. Put yourself in their situation. How would you feel? None of us can sit here and say that we loved Prince more than any of them did. Regardless of if they wrote a book or not.
