This concert from Sheila E's drumset on is on Youtube. Greg and Wally are most certainly still in the band, dancing and providing percussion!

Check me on it!

Agreed. I would love to have that on DVD. I believe the whole show does exist. There is footage in the infamous BBC documentary of him doing Sign O' The Times.

Instead we got the Originals and such and no real plan, no vision nor mission.

Pills and thrills and daffodils will kill... If you don't believe me or don't get it, I don't have time to try to convince you, sorry.

TLM: On New Year’s Eve 1987, you finally got to play on the same stage as Miles, during a Prince benefit event at Paisley Park studios.

Eric Leeds: I always regret one moment. There was just one moment when I wanted to nudge the trumpet player Matt [Blistan, aka Atlanta Bliss] to go into a melody line in "Agharta" and the moment came and went by so quickly that I wasn’t able to grab it. I always regretted that because I really wanted to see the look on Miles’s face! The whole affair lasted for all of five minutes but it was cool.

TLM: Wasn’t Prince perplexed because the band was forgetting all the cues?

Eric Leeds: He gave us one of his hand cues to hit a riff and as I remember it, no one hit the cue, because they were all grooving on what Miles was doing and Prince was kinda taken aback! He yelled “Hey, I’m still the boss up here!”

I agree with U both

It was circulating on Youtube the year before Prince went after Youtube Housequake and other sites

.

TLM: I was saying to Alan that it was strange that the concert was never released, although there is a bootleg audio and Video CD, Miles From The Park.

Eric Leeds: The anticipation was a lot stronger than the actual event. It was a very fast funk groove that we were doing and it wasn’t anything that Miles was going to do anything other than just basically do his stick.
