Prince thorwing up that 666 hand sign...not to mention he always threw up the Baphomet hand sign as well... and he was also quite fond of checkerboard (Masonic) floors....interesting that his sister Sharon, would say she used to call him "The Prince Of Darkness"... and also interesting that miss Lavonne Daugherty would say Prince was 'evil'.

eek hmmmmm

I thought the checkerboard floors came from First Avenue. Parade era(including the Romance 1600) shows included those floor first and since but interesting nonetheless

Maybe this belongs in an audiovisual appreciation thread biggrin, but I loved hearing Prince talk to Chris Rock in 1997. A favorite interview for sure!

Thanks, and glad for the visual reminder that Prince was willing to take off his sunglasses while rocking that outfit. For me personally, the Chris Rock interview is a 10 out of 10. LOVE that conversation. The only thing that keeps it from being 11 out of 10 lol are those sunglasses. It's not the style of the glasses. Hardly ever like sunglasses...on anybody. I like to see people's eyes. Sunglasses that obscure Prince's beautiful eyes get all the wrath. mad

There are a few exceptions to the rule. Occasionally sunglasses are cool. Like with ZZ Top. Or the Org's resident yellow dude. cool

He did more interviews in the 90s and most of the time had sunglasses on I think.

These photos made my morning. Thank you, most especially for the top one. Those eyes. love

Still mad at the sunglasses, but have to give props to all of Prince's shades (meant both ways) of reds and blues. So cool the way the glasses in the bottom picture work with his shirt. No doubt there's some matching blue heels to be found.

It's been a while, so I may also be mistaken, but by my memory she did indeed say Prince cut them like that, and that they thought it succeeded in bringing out an "older" womanly side of her (vs. "girlish" side). Not sure those bangs are my favorite, either. I know it's weird, but they feel a little distractingly "Sci Fi look" to me. Not that Sci Fi is a bad thing.

Anyway, regardless of hairstyle preference, she is and was beautiful. Revisited "Sweet Baby" video yesterday after seeing discussion here. : )

That time Prince crashed an Alabama cover band's gig



2f3_prince1.jpeg

Jan. 18, 1997

The Cheesebrokers had just launched into a cover of U2's "Angel of Harlem" when the guy they'd hired to take up door-money called singer/guitarist Paul Milazzo to the side of the stage and said, "He's here."

"What are you talking about?" Milazzo replied.

"Prince," the door-money dude said.

Milazzo looked over to the side of stage right and there was Prince - the superstar musician and singer of "Purple Rain," "When Doves Cry" and countless other super-sexy hits, bobbing head and tapping foot to the faux-R&B U2 tune Cheesebrokers were playing.

Prince was wearing sunglasses, a long camel-colored coat, animal print scarf, black pants and tall heels. He wore futuristic-looking gold clips on his ears. He looked like he could've been at the Grammys.

The five members of the Cheesebrokers were all wearing matching, power-blue industrial cleaning suits. They looked like the cheesy '80s cover band they proudly were.

Realizing Prince was standing just feet away watching, "you feel like a shock," says Cheesebrokers guitarist Matt Mathis. "Like you're caught doing something you're not supposed to, playing guitar in front of that guy, to the degree that he can play."

This all was happening around 1:15 a.m. or so the night of Saturday, Jan. 19, 1997, inside Birmingham's Five Points Music Hall. Prince had played a concert at Boutwell Auditorium earlier that evening.

Right before the first verse of "Angel of Harlem," Milazzo walked over to Cheesebrokers keyboardist Tim Tucker, who was about to start his lead vocals on the song, learned into Tucker's ear and said, "Sing this one good, man. Look who just showed up."

f2f_prince3.jpeg

From behind his Korg 1 synthesizer, Tucker turned to the right and saw Prince nonchalantly grooving, with Prince's entire band standing behind him. "Pure adrenaline took over," Tucker recalls now. "But I ended up singing that song really, really well. I was hitting those Bono high notes like there was no tomorrow. And I would glance over occasionally, Prince had his hands in his pockets, head bobbing and I was like, 'This is pretty cool.'"

Some revelers in the Five Points Music Hall crowd had noticed Prince on the side of the stage and began to get excited. Very excited.

The Cheesebrokers, which also featured guitarist Matt Mathis, bassist Michael Green and drummer John Harford, finished their U2 cover. Milazzo asked a friend offstage to ask Prince to come out and play a song with the band. Prince declined.

Then Milazzo called out for The Cheesebrokers to play Prince's flirty 1985 smash "Raspberry Beret" next, even though they'd already played the song earlier that night. "The plan was to butcher his songs until he came out to join us," Milazzo says.

Milazzo, who was playing a Gibson Les Paul guitar, kept waving to Prince to join them onstage. Prince kept shaking his head no, even though musicians in Prince's band were by now nudging him on the shoulder to go out there.

Then, in exaggerated pleading, Milazzo got on his knees...

Adore all these colors and the pattern/texture of the paint and P's outfit.

Some photos here I've never seen, and an impressive number with those elusive unencumbered-by-shades eyes. cool biggrin

Very cool to see the black and white photo with the band, etc. checking out the set and equipment.

Much love to all these photos. Grateful to get to see them!


Edited to ask:

What is the colorful material behind Prince? It's kinda like a stained-glass look.
Have so litttle Prince knowledge. Was this picture for a particular poster/video/song?
