On Time : A Princely Life In Funk

On Time : A Princely Life In Funk

By Morris Day

 

A memoir by Morris Day of The Time centering around his lifelong relationship and association with Prince.

"A vital, illuminating, and wildly entertaining autobiography." -Billboard

 

"Great book! Great storytelling!" -LENNY KRAVITZ

 

"Lean, slick, cooler than Santa Claus, and surprisingly tender, this book not only traces Day's history in Minneapolis funk, but doubles as an intimate recollection of his time with Prince."

BEN GREENMAN, author of Dig If You Will The Picture

 

Brilliant composer, smooth soul singer, killer drummer, and charismatic band leader, Morris Day has been a force in American music for the past four decades. In On Time : A Princely Life In Funk, the renowned funkster looks back on a life of turbulence and triumph, chronicling his creative process with an explosive prose that mirrors his intoxicating music.

 

A major theme throughout the book is Morris's enduring friendship and musical partnership with Prince, from their early days on the Minneapolis scene to selling out stadiums and duking it out as rivals in Purple Rain. Eventually, Morris went on to release four albums with a new band of his very own, The Time; however, before long, increasing tensions between the two performers set them down separate paths. Through the years, the fierce brotherly love between Morris and Prince kept bringing them back together-until pride, ego, and circumstance interfered. Two months before Prince's untimely death, the two finally started to make amends. But Morris never could have imagined it would be the last time he'd ever see his friend again.
