“When the dirty work was over, I went to work on a show for a celebration of ’s first birthday on June 7, 1994. Nona Gaye hosted a simulcast at the LA Glam Slam while we performed live in Miami. He didn’t fall back on any of the old Prince music for this event; it was all about the new music he was creating as —fresh, fire-in-the-belly funk, for the most part.
The night of the birthday party, about a thousand people milled in the street outside the club. Advance ticket sales were big. Unfortunately, fake ticket sales were even bigger. The situation got real as people realized not everyone was going in. Fights broke out, and several people were arrested for disorderly conduct. At half past midnight, security just stepped back and waved everybody in. When my friend and I saw what was happening, we just looked at each other like here goes nuthin’ and stepped out on the stage.”
