New book about Prince by Marylou Badeaux. Simply amazing!

Hello Orgers

I'm pleased to announce that my dear friend, Marylou Badeaux, will soon be releasing a new book 'Moments - Remembering Prince'. Some of you would have heard of Marylou, who has the unbelievable history of working directly with Prince for over 20 years...

I have been a close friend of Marlyou's for years (we catch up regularly for coffee/chats) and the stories I have heard regarding her time with Prince are truly amazing. I have been one of the priveliged few who have read the final book (and gave feedback on), and I can assure everyone here that once you start reading it, you won't want to put it down!


For those of you that don't know me, I was the 'Australian Connection' for Eileen Murton's wonderful 'Controversy' magazine, well before the internet. I have also been a 'lurker' on here for years, often on a daily basis πŸ˜€

In the meantime, below is a link to the newly set-up Facebook page, which will keep you informed about this amazing soon-to-be-released book:

Hello, Michael. I'm just sending a note--though we don't know each other--because I had a subscription for a few years to Controversy. Edwena Brunell aka Blue was my United States rep, and I have so many wonderful memories of that magazine. Blue even helped after I purchased my copies of the Lovesexy Concert on VHS and I didn't know that I had to get them converted to play them in the US. I also loved Blue's tape lending library that jump-started my bootleg collection. Anyway, not much to add about the upcoming book, but I read your mention of Controversy, and all these great memories came flooding to me. I hope your friend has much success with the new book, and I'll keep an eye for it.

Yes, Controversy magazine was THE place to get our 'Prince fix' and was great while it lasted. Glad you enjoyed the magazine and if you have the issues still, look through and you will see some of my articles and interviews πŸ˜€

Marylou's book is SO full of amazing Prince stories, many which have never been told publicly. You will love the book!!

Sounds like good news to me.

With so many biographies on Prince these days, itΒ΄s hard to choose the right ones.

Duane TudahlΒ΄s book and MarylouΒ΄s book are two books I definitely want to buy.

What, in your opinion, are the strengths of this one ?

You know....some books are more personal, some focus more on particular albums and the recording process, some are a bit gossipy....what makes this one stand out to you, apart from the fact that she knew him ?

" IΒ΄d rather be a stank ass hoe because IΒ΄m not stupid. Oh my goodness! I got more drugs! IΒ΄m always funny dude...IΒ΄m hilarious! Are we gonna smoke?"

I have heard SO many amazing stories about Prince from Marylou and this book has some of them, with some great photos!


Really not trying to rain on anyone's parade (no pun intended), but you guys should really stop saying that one particular photo is from the day P signed with Warner Bros. when there's a poster promoting his first album behind them. No offense, but facts are important. The photo is from 1979. Good luck with the book!

Thanks droppingdishes πŸ˜€ Marylou was alerted to this mistake and had already rectified it.

Here is Marylou's response:

"Thanks to the eagle-eyed fans who realized, due to the poster in the background, this pix is actually from 1979. It means there's another picture somewhere in my boxes of the signing. I appreciate the Heads-up. I want the book to be as accurate as is possible!"

Here's what Dr Fink has to say about Marylou's new book:

"Marylou Badeaux has the word β€œbad” in her name, meaning she was the baddest Warner Brothers marketing agent on the planet. This memoir has the stories and photos that have never been heard or seen before from the perspective of someone involved around the inner workings of Prince's world. I definitely think he would've enjoyed all of the memories contained within."

Sounds good, as she worked with Prince for a long time and offered opinions about his music as he made it. She even had the guts to tell him something was not as great as he thought it may be (From Possessed).
