This is the SOLE reason why Prince(r.i.p.) cut short the Purple Rain tour. Then eventually barely a year later broke up the mechanical Revolution. It was ALL stifling his musical growth and not challenging him as a musician. Even though most if not ALL here don't like Larry Graham. Prince's guitar playing actually improved(if that was even possible) when he brought his musical hero/childhood idol in his band.

You know, while I'm inclined to actually believe your ridiculous stories (who could be bothered to actually make up such tedious name dropping?) you're wrong about the Revolution - by virtue of having more personality than technical prowess the Revolution were probably the least mechanical of P's bands.

I feel The Revolution did shine on the screen and in his earlier videos. They helped craft his image as a vast array of race & personalities and was innovative. But they didn't challenge Prince(r.i.p.) musically.They just duplicated what he wanted live.

Btw: I did enjoy them live the few times I seen them since Prince(r.i.p.) transitioned. But I can tell the difference without his guidance in directions only he can take them.

So Prince, whom fought 4 his first record deal & got it, fought 4 a movie deal & got it, fought 4 freedom from his WB contract & got it, fought 4 his masters & got them.Gets a curable illness & says 2 himself ok, I'm done. "Life is a Box Of Chocolates"

Sure, we all can, they're not a full time band, they're a backup band, they spend half their frickin' show talking about how they're nothing without him. As for challenging prince musically, i wouldn't be so arrogant as to assume I'd know what did or didn't challenge him.

I enjoy fairly all his bands for different reasons, and as a fan of pop music i like a good strong image - not something I'd accuse some of Prince's (RIP 1958-2016 forever in my life, the beautiful one, the horny toad) latter bands of having. I still love me some NPG tho.
