Funny Prince anecdote from horn player Michael Nelson

Saw this on Facebook. Now I'm going to have visions of Prince randomly appearing everywhere. lol

WOW!!

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

What kills me is the 20 hours a day working? . When did this guy sleep? How did he do it and why can't people see how this so not fits the narrative that is being woven.

He did indeed. I saw him in a club at an after party and he was only a few feet away. It seemd he neither arrived nor left, yet was there and then wasn't. lol lol

RIP sad

THis runs in my mind all the time...

AGREE...There is no way he could achieve what he has DOPED up to the eyeballs as some People want us to believe !

He hardly ate..He hardly slept..

Worked himself to the bones...literally...He was running on Divine EnerG

c o n n e c t e d to that which we all want to be connected to

but can only dream of because we dont do the WORK !

Keep in mind that Michael was working with him up until January of 2016 and has said numeorus times that Prince was working at a very high level music wise and was not high. Mike has been very adament about it. Prince was a tough guy and he might have had a high tolerence level for these meds especially if he had been taking them for a long time but he would not have been able to beat the side effects. The more you take the worst the side effects are and I know about Percocet from my own experience. People would notice vomiting, stomach cramping, constipation, and being loopy if he was abusing pills and not taking a normal dosage. Things went south the last months of his life for some reason.

Adrian Crutchfield specifically asked to do a second Funkenberry podcast to address the drug thing. He's also someone who worked with Prince in 2016. Also he said he's had family members who were addicts and said he was a dealer earlier in his life. I suppose it could just be a young kid sticking up for his boss and mentor. But his message was pretty clear. Anyway as I've argued before people seem to be making assumptions based on few facts which is unfortunate.

Yes, a lot of wild assumptions based on tabloid nosense but we are living in a world were our President tweets instead of doing press conferences and makes up outright lies to get press time and people believe it.

It is if all independent thinking and facts are no longer needed. Just make up stuff and ignore logic.

Exactly my experience too when I met him. He really did seem to appear out of nowhere.

Imagine him as a dad doing that. I'd feel for the kid.
