I knew a guy that worked for PP as a dancer... we took a crazy road trip from Las Cruces NM to Phonix to see him in 97 (Love 4 tour) and again when he was in Las Cruses... lost touch...but he said it was all good... lots of work but a good exp

Hi... I can assure you there are no ill intentions. (That's why there are certain stories I'll keep to myself)... I'm a 40 year old man, working a 40-hour per week phone job. The one thing that separates me from the other corporate worker drones is my past with Prince.

For years I tried to block those memories from my mind (long story). Now, as a middle-aged man, I am realizing how valuable those experiences are.

I love to write but have never had a good excuse. I thought it would be nice to share some of the fun stories that I recall. Trust me, there won't be anything that rocks the boat too much... just recollecting valuable times.

So many questions spring to mind!!!

1). Was he always joking/doing practical jokes?
2). Did he pay well?
3). The Women...was it really that constant?
4). How did he work?
5). Who did he admire musically at the time?
6). How many hours did he sleep? When did he sleep??

Your stories just make me kind of sad. It seems like the man didn't have any friends..especially when employees pop up every once in a while to say that most good stories about Prince's 'friendships' are false.

Now, I understand why Prince was so adamant about having everyone he hired sign nondisclosure agreements. Why would you want to share something like the "two flusher" story? Who does that? Do you have any uplifting, fun stories? Lastly, your screen name is a real cause for pause.

Well, sadly the lack of uplifting stories may only prove how distant Prince could be back in the day. It may reflect more about Prince's isolation than we would like to admit.

I submit that it is more than we need to know.

Exactly. This was demeaning and I can not see any good reason for it having been posted.

Well if it's true, I found it funny. It was a reminder that the man was human. Thanks for sharing your stories. smile

The problem is that the 'uplifting' stories are discredited by people like this dude or Tommy B. What to believe? I don't know maybe 90's folks are a bit jealous of the folks before and after that period who have more personal stories to tell about Prince.

The uplifing stores are discredited by those people because that was not the expereince they had with him. Those people were not around for 20 years so they can only speak on what they know about. Also different people are going to have difference experience depending on what his relationship with them was like

. I also do not know if it is ever a good idea for bosses to hang out socially with their employees and from reading these interviews with some of the people entertainment industry I think some of them have no idea what should go on in a professional environment. Prince was smart in some cases to keep his distance and I understand why he had people sign non-disclosure agreements.

Some of these people sound like they think Prince owed them friendship which as a boss you do no owe your employees friendship.

They only thing I think is real is that he was a hard task master both on himself and the people around him. That constanly driving people all the time is going to make people resentful.

I didn't realize that some people would hate on this so much... to those people, I apologize if you're offended.

There are a ton of things I will not share in public... I just thought its fun to take small, trivial interactions and turn them into quick stories. The fun part is that these stories would be completely pointless if they were about your uncle Ray or any of your friends. It's fun to remember Prince doing regular-guy things.

--The poop story was not needed but other than that I have no issues. Plenty of storie about Prince doing regular things. He was human and he had his bad times and good times.

Yup. ^^^^^^^ALL of THIS^^^^^^^

As nosey as I am, I could've guessed in over 57 years that any human with a healthy body has or will eventually go to the bathroom. I didn't need to hear about it from a "first hand account".

As a non-celebrity, I can only imagine how it must feel to wonder if, in an embarrasing moment/situation, someone in my employ can be trusted not to divluge details such as that particular story, especially after my death...but I guess the entertainment value was far too tempting.

I suppose that says more about the story sharer than it does about P.

Reminds me of the employee (working at a gynecologist) who shared the tools used during Marilyn Monroe's pap smear. Ew

Ah, well...there's nothing to be done about it now and P, thankfully, isn't present to feel vulnerable anymore.

Cheers
