Morris Day says the Prince estate told him he can’t use The Time anymore
March 3rd, 2022 under Music. [ Comments: 1 ]

Prince and Morris Day go back a long time. The two of them went to high school together. So when Prince was able to create his own bands under the Warner Bros. label, he created one for his chum.

So ever since 1981 (with a few hiatuses), Day and the band that Prince created has been going by Morris Day and the Time, and no one had a problem with it. The band was even one of the few selected musicians to play at Prince’s Tribute Show shortly after he died.

Thus, you would think everything would be good between Day and the Prince Estate. It is not. Day claimed on Facebook today the estate sent him a notice telling him he can no longer use The Time as the band’s name.

I’ve given 40 years of my life building up a name and legacy that Prince and I came up with. A name that while he was alive, he had no problem with me using. I Literally put my blood, sweat, and tears into bringing value to that name. In fact, he booked me on several tours, and many jam packed nights at paisley park, under the name Morris Day & The Time. Not once ever saying to me that I couldn’t use that name configuration.. However, now that Prince is no longer with us – suddenly, the people who control his multi million dollar estate, want to rewrite history by taking my name away from me, thus impacting how i feed my family. So as of now, per the Prince Estate, can no longer use Morris Day & The Time in any capacity.

Why now, almost six years after Prince died? I am just guessing here, but his estate was finally settled in January, and distribution was expected to begin last month, according to the Star Tribune. However, lawyers and taxes took a big chunk of it. I am assuming the family would like more money, so they could be looking to sell his catalog to a label for millions, which might include The Time’s tunes. And I am guessing that would mean their name would not be theirs anymore. But I am just spitballing here.

Personally, I think the band should be able to keep their name because, after all of this time, it is their name. How many Motown groups are touring without any of the original lineup and still using the same name as the band whose songs they are singing.

Styx have been Renegades for 50 years
February 23rd, 2022 under 70s, Music, Styx. [ Comments: none ]

Styx have been making beautiful music for 50 years, and they are hoping to do it for 50 more.

They are not the only ones who hope this happens. Ever since they asked us to Come Sail Away with them, we have been Ridin’ the Storm Out With them ever since. And we plan on doing so for as long as Mr. Roboto tells us to.

Because we Can’t Fight This Feeling for how much we love them!

Oh, and this Lady is still crushing on Tommy Shaw. Can you believe he is 68? He looks just like he did when he joined the band in 75.

Macklemore’s daughter is his worst critic
October 28th, 2021 under Music. [ Comments: none ]

Macklemore has a new song out, and he couldn’t wait for his daughter to hear it. So, what did Sloane think of it? Let’s just say she was not impressed.

“It’s not your best, but I still love ya,” the 6-year-old told her dad. “Is this really your best rapping?”

However, she finally concluded that Next Year is “really good.” And the sassy little girl better be really good if she wants to see next year.

Seriously, her dad should get her show where she critiques music because she does not hold back! And that makes her so awwwwdorable.

Imagine Dragons go hard and Cutthroat
May 7th, 2021 under Music. [ Comments: none ]

When you think of Imagine Dragons‘ songs, you think of them as Alternative Pop Rock. However, their new song Cutthroat sounds like something a person who wants to cut your throat would sing.

Dan Reynolds’ calming voice is anything but on the tune. Instead, he is screaming like someone in a Heavy Metal band.

Is it bad? No, I really got into it. I just never expected this type of sound to come from them.

I am used to listening to their albums to calm down. But this one makes me want to get up and Rock out. I like it, and I want more of it.

Da Baby made a Grammys red carpet for his baby
March 15th, 2021 under Music. [ Comments: none ]


The Grammys changed the rules this year because of COVID-19, and they said that no kids were allowed. Da Baby didn’t want his daughter to feel left out, so he created a red carpet just for her.

Since Princess Renny needs to be dressed up for the occasion, he made sure she was dressed to the nines. He flew Alani Taylor in from NYC to make the yellow gown for the toddler.

Da dad did good because she looks beautiful. She looks like the Belle of the ball.

It is a shame she did not get to walk the real red carpet with her dad, but this even better. This is what memories are all about, and she will remember how special her dad made her feel.

I don’t know much about Da Baby, but I love him because of this. There is nothing sexier than a loving dad!
