Why is Nikki West considered an associated artist? I thought all she did was jam with P at Paisley. She isn’t featured on any of his recordings & I haven’t seen her photographed with him or perform with him. Just wondering out loud. I realise that she is funky & cool & badass on the bass but don’t u think ‘associated artist’ is elevating her status? I’m happy to be corrected if i’m mistaken.

She said in a statement on the site for the Nothing Compares 2 Prince Tribute that she recorded at least five songs with 3rd Eye Girl in 2015 and was planning to open with them and The Golden Hippie for Prince's tour she said was planned to coincide with the release of Purple Rain Deluxe.

A STRIKING purple-haired American bass player has been identified as the mystery woman who kept private company with Prince into the wee hours at a Double Bay hotspot at the weekend.

She also posted a beautiful clip of Prince playing "Love Thy Wiil Be Done" from one of the shows that Prince played for her on a stereo in his hotel room. She showed video of his knit cap and sceptor on a table as it played.

Ok. Shame for her really then that it never happened. Bit like Mono Neon. Is this clip still available? 💜

Yes,it was sad to learn what had been planned. Here is her post with the clip from Sydney www.instagram.com/p/BGXgaIyh1Tq/ In February 2015 she shared a 15 second clip recorded during a mixing session at Paisley and said Prince asked her to record the video. It seems the music may have been intended for the NPGQ album. www.instagram.com/p/zio3yLB1eo/

I assume she played bass but she can also play guitar. She said the songs she did with 3rd Eye Girl and The Golden Hippie (Marissa Jack) were recorded in 2015 at Paisley Park. Maybe it was for another 3rd Eye Girl album.

I don't believe they ever got to perform live together unfortunately. She said that she was planning to tour with them following Prince's Piano Mic shows and she mentioned in her IG post with the clip from the show in Sydney that they talked about their plans for the summer. Perhaps that was what she was referring to.

Yep! A lot from the last few years too. I recall it being mentioned somewhere that Prince recorded a few albums worth of material with 3rd Eye Girl but Hannah said they never officially recorded another album. I loved Nik's story as well.

I found that clip very comforting at the time, too.
