I remember a long time ago hearing that Steve would love to record with Prince. (Anyone else heard this?) I was recently watching Prince Live at the Alladin and thought their styles would be very interesting together on a song or two.

So, who here thinks Steve and Prince should record together? Whatever they recorded, I'm sure STRONG and SMOOTH would sum up the song.

I believe if you do a search you will find the answer. I remember Mikey talking about Steve going to Prince's place and working or jamming. I believe Prince gave Steve a guitar too. Sorry my memory is poor on this but I do know it has been discussed.

Steve and Prince have met on a number of occasions. As for what they talked about is for Steve to reveal. ;) Steve also visited Paisley Park and jammed with the New Power Generation.

A collaboration would be great - but I don't think anything is planned. But you never know!

This topic was my first question for Steve on our EVO Experience... (the first q of the whole occasion...sorry for the other two participants if I was too high driven by passion for the topic)...but I hope you too think it was thrilling to listen his opinions, stories, gestures etc. about other topics too, I wouldn't miss any second of it (stared at him with drilling eyes :shock: or that I felt inside - sorry for that Steve... lol :oops: )





....what was the topic again?... :) :wink:

Steve told me he had sent Prince ten of his "Bad Horsie" wah wah pedals and that Prince had flipped out over it and his guitarist is now using one.

Steve also told me he gave Prince one of his very favotite Jems as a gift

We also talked about a all acoustic CD Prince released called "The Truth" that is just amazing, I am a huge prince fan by the way, that's why we starting talking about Prince

Prince would be very cool. I have also spoke to Steve about that. Also another person I would love for him to work with would be Trent Reznor. Could you imagine all 3 of them in a room together??.. :)

Me and my brother are also huge Prince fams. I know here on this board are many topics where he is mentioned.
Use the search service - it takes a while to read them through but it's worth it.
