The “book of the week” should have been “Mama Never Taught Me How to Sing,” by Tyka Nelson. Last week, I just knew I was going to have that book in my possession, but I was outbid on eBay. I was not willing to pay $100, which I predicted to be the other bidder’s “ceiling,” because the information in the book, while interesting, is not crucial to my book. Maybe I’ll get it another way in the future…
What is your favorite Prince interview?
My favorite interview from Prince is the July 2004 edition of Guitar Player magazine. He spoke about his guitar playing, ideas that guitarists can use to spice up their music. For example, as a bassist, he said that in order to effectively solo you gotta have rhythm, pitch and timing. He talked about music education for young people and gave props to Brian May, Joni Mitchell and the Funk Brothers. His most musical interview ever.ReplyDelete
