On time : a princely life in funk

Day, Morris (author.). Ritz, David, (author.).

Summary

Summary: Composer, soul singer, drummer, and band leader, Day has been a force in American music for the past four decades. Here he chronicles his creative process with an explosive prose that mirrors his intoxicating music. A major theme is his lifelong friendship and years of 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. After releasing four albums with a new band of his very own, May battled his addictions and came out victorious. Throughout the narrative, Morris allows Prince's "voice" to protect his own legacy and to counter Morris's interpretations of events. -- adapted from jacket
