Swear to god for half a second thing. That's a remix the music you know like danny you know. But how did you guys feel about. I mean 'cause come valve and human rights singer melt. Yeah he was. I was always really encouraging. So don't let this folks get you down. You just got to keep pushing because trust me. I was because once we left. We'd they love me philly town. They loved us. They love me. They showed me a lot of. That's why luther was like. Oh but we went to baltimore necks. Well fuck was what statute was. Bobby's you know that was a whole mommy. Luther drew and what he was trying to get away from because we understand. Luther is so amazing as an artist is one of the few black artists that went platinum every time just on the black chart every time. So you're saying that you guys were there for the edge to bring a different audience in to younger audiences. But that's why it'd be murdered. 'cause he did some shit in philly. I never seen before my life. Affiliate that week was the most amazing i was in the dressing room sitting there Sending her getting dressed somehow sitting in my back to the door. And i'm sitting in front of the mirror and i hear you in my town hall fucking. Hey mister and i look up and his doctor jay. i'll you know. And that's less like fantasy shit for us. In our aaron silvers on and that was one thing the other thing is that luther was he was a prankster and so luther would do always play jokes and shit like you. You'd walk into like he. He'd be an addressing feet down. And i remember walking in one time and the lights were often turn lights on a mannequin. Would fucked up mask and shit. Your should drop drop and you hear luther crying. But i heard that when he's he was on tour other female yeah that he would but lemme go before you jump to that. This is what it was. I my belief That's a thing in las vegas when you're famous for being a singer and you ain't really zinger thing you d. Want him to you. Know how we snowed with that shit. You go come and jam. Oh what you all day. Who else is playing. Hang on because you you. I just can't play with anybody. I just can't can't do it by rehearsal Oh that's good to hear twelve okay and jammed rehearsal.

Because i never really go to mastering zaire's lum due to thing and and it was massive out here and i'm getting back to acetate. Tallish is like on fire when it comes on here. But i can never but no no. No you know what it was about. I think the big thing the biggest thing to turn me off his she didn't want it. She didn't want it so when you don't want it i'm like what am i supposed to do if you don't want it then i didn't either did records on you and i had And so the the was. I think blueberry gaza might have been a second round. I did a lot of those tracks. But i didn't do. Any of the stupidest lyrics didn't do none of that. I just did the tracks blueberry gossip and all that stuff that's all me and allow the tracks are all me but somebody else. Yeah her and southern cat David cochran finished all the record. I wasn't on any that. I was like on tour at the time and i wasn't even invested any of my time in the i said i'm sorry i made you sign that record. No i love gossip. I just don't know what the hell blueberry gossip. yeah. I'm still trying to jesse no a okay. Since the bottom of the barrel child figure out everything. But i gotta know you opened for luther vandross. I believe on the night. I fell in love tour. That's what i remember because all my aunts went to bed show. Luther is world famous for micromanaging. His opening acts. Let me explain something to you talking. I was talking about one of the most beautiful human beings. I walked planet. Let me let me tell you seriously. Let me tell you. Let me take their so luther. He brought me on an. I'm in the middle slot and He was so accommodating so absolutely just wonderful human being because my shit is louder and they their stuff is more stereo. His band was a mate. You know ridiculous bans times like shoddy sound like a giant stereo was just amazing but my stuff was marana but he upgraded the monitoring system. So that i would be. He really wanted me on a tour them but his audience from the most high once. We did a week spectrum right. There's no longer there. We did a week at the went to. We did a week. There was us. It was luther headline middle ready for the world and ready for the world already for the world stuff. People were kind of thrown back by them because they re a lot of people thought it was prince. Yeah for me And so when they would open they would just get like no love and in philly was taff on them when they were opened..

I really enjoy more when it's a rocket rock thing but i know the stuff but just like sometimes it's like to dislike even being indeed nice to just the thing we did today with chrome meal Just nice to just play guitar not be. Give me a mike. I got it at island. Never wanna mike kinda have them put one on me. We're on tv. So you get paid more. But i want to jump back again. I'm sorry do you remember the nineteen eighty-four minnesota music awards for me with me. Yeah i think it was a time. It was time I think somebody told me that you were supposed to be singing. Lead on the On jungle love. I guess morris had already left the group or whatever no no but prince ran out on stage and did leads for the entire set. I don't remember that. I think that's a rumor okay. 'cause i never remember that. He he didn't do that. I know but jungle of no he. If you ever hear his version. I mean he was the same song. If you're here vocal he put his foot in it. And morris did a great job prince if you heard. Prince wrote that melody and lyrics. But it's just a whole twist. He do it saying when he wanted to and You ever heard. That was always hoping. Because i don i had that on a cassette and that froze up like you know lynn nine thousand longtime going you know. I don't have a copy of that. Oh rapid fire. We gotta stop eventually Was there ever to talk at the time going on tour on the purple rain tour. No no no no but this was really sad. We just recently talked to my manager about that. We we We never reaped the perp arraign thing and because we were supposed to go on tour. And when i signed my record deal very few if anybody only john maclean knows that no this imprint. By when i signed the records. I signed the deal. But i wasn't. I didn't have to do a record for year. Because i was like go. Yeah one going to be a first time out without prince was going to be on our own merit. Whose go you guys are gonna do your own thing. That was the whole thing. We were never ever ever planned principles. You kidding me. Prince was so sick of us putting our foot in his ass after nine thousand nine hundred and taken us in a backyard because the the the peru itself is like basically the movie..

"So there was an there was no before you left the wazir. Every talk you taking over for morris in the time never never never because time was his thing. It was his baby. It was his. I respect one thing i to this day. He'll tell you. I have major respect for hierarchy. I i don't like when i'm d- i'm when i'm a d- i'm ds player and dis my boss and so there's a lot of things that ah maybe five don't agree with something. But because he's my boss. When we're on tour i don't say anything but we're home i there's been plenty of time so i call. You can fire me. I'm at home now. You know he. But i respect him greatly. It's his thing. And i never step on anybody's toes during thing after jimmy -tarian monte left. Would it feel like for you have to take over the leads for rehearsals like i always. You're always yes. I was always kind of in. That would morris wasn't around. He was like the guy that he didn't have to come to rehearsals. He knew what ideas hall arrangements he wanted to add. Or whether or not. I was the guy that i hired all the other new people and blah blah blah. But i was like really kind of that that the and i was never officially the guided runs. This and i was never that never had that seidel. Okay so when you're rehearsing though and each six songs each Like four point or are you just doing stuff would still add nausea. You not it was. It was a it was something that worked it was. It was kind of a busy work plan but it worked against the boss. Yeah because it was a busy week planned to you. Know i didn't have busy. You guys got it at sixty dollars a week for the longest so but we ended up getting because you know when you go on stage like that. You're you're not only good but you're pissed you don't want to. It's just like when a fighter says a whole bunch of stuff about it. I don't know if you saw that last triple g. Fight is past week in. And i've got hit him good one time and then like dude you gotta really any came back and beat that guy like the old money or something and that's kind of like we would people see us now our mazing. Y'all attitude they don't know was mad for real and it was the one way in time where you could get it out. And it wasn't destructive but it was like you up their plan shit grit teeth and meaning. I feel when he publicly said that the time was the only band he was. Never afraid of e- you know. Honestly it didn't mean shit to me just like when people just like when all this stuff comes up now where he says all this great stuff about me you know. It's like it's like a child. Talking about a parent passed away. It's like y- y. Can you say that tummy win here..

Rock island is a very very very small town in at the end of the bridge as bridge that it takes you from your in rock honestly knowing when you go abrasion down part. I will read the foot of that bridge. There's a You can see it online because it's no longer there now but it was called. The yankee clipper a hardcore biker. Bar i mean if you win and air black you die. I'm not i'm saying. Is that the band the the you can look it up. The motorcycle was called the grim reapers. You any event even worse you had a chance. You had a better chance. Like i learned something about cats. That were hard core like that. Like i went in there and i survived because i went in there and cranked map and the guy who plays i took and his band. A band was called dealer and the guy who place i took he was like an actual dealer and he just got tired of plans so i took his gave the job to me and then obama bengals all dan. The club was like it was like it used to be at one point. Stripped on the stage was like this when we were and then it came out in a low. You like that because it was a strip joint And it was a long stays like that and then a bar rant and i and win the one of the guys in the band was gay and i never got any flack because i played my butt off. You know i went in and just pummel. Home of bob popped it harder than it ever hurt. Somebody kick guitar like that and When he would come to sing it held him with so much stuff and is like the blues brothers. Go to chicken. But what i discovered at that young age is like you can be white. But if you're gay they will hate to more than they hate me. Yeah they don't they never because they love me. Because i went in there and really so does this mean that you would have to go zero to one hundred and automatically so your shred skills to let let them know it. Something happens to you because you you in your mind know that it's a it's it's hard to explain it's like something in your mind knows that it's like sink or swim. Die right in swimming and you don't know how to. Which is you know i i you swim. And so at the end of that bridge. The town of small at the end of that bridge safety. The yankee clipper cross the street. Down across the street at the end of the sheraton. The only big hotel you know was like the taj mahal in this little town so across the bridge. You take a right now or are you ever heard of the arcueil orpheum that's it right there. Because you gotta you gotta remember. Iowa is the rock and roll belt of the united states. That's why the monsters of rock all of that stuff iowa iowa iowa iowa iowa. That's why my cousin is jealous. Because i've seen everybody on because that's where all the i the con- the line halen.

"A few certainties in life. Yeah one of them is. This ban must have been an absolute blast to see live. I mean i can't even imagine dare stace. Presence is obviously amazing cure. Here's something that we gotta talk about. Okay if you're a fan of kevin smith and any of the stuff that he does. And i think it's an understatement to say that you are a kevin smith fan. I the funny thing about that is that i'm more of a fan of the The people that his his buddies his buddies. Yeah yeah yeah anyway The time showed up in jay and silent. Bob strike back doing performance at an after party. Do they do this. Song is i. Don't know what song they do but That's cool. But i all i know is like i recognize. I was looking at trying to figure out. How like why recognized morris day and it's because he shows up in that bill cole with the time whereas i mean whether that's going crazy jane silent bob strike back came out in two thousand one like i don't know why that's here's the thing kevin smith like if he throws if he throws anybody into his film or any band or anything like that. That means that he's a fan of that group. Or right or i safe to say. The kevin smith was is a fan of of the time. Yeah that's that's kind of like with the john hughes if if you were gonna show up an drown hughes film. Chances are it's because he's a fan of your music which that's a great segue because jesse johnson has syria. Did and jesse johnson's revue has kind of a cameo. If you will in pretty in pink. We played that song in our premium pink episode. And we're going to play it as long again. Sorry if you're going to hear it again. Sorry 'cause i just love the song and it's a non single so it's fair game But yeah so. Jesse johnson splits. I want to say that the time kind of splitting apart was mutual. You know like no bad blood From what i read. But jesse johnson's started doing his own stuff. So this is just more of the same. That funky mini minneapolis sound. I wanna put another in their dude. Minneapolis minneapolis minneapolis But yeah so in the and there's a record store that's featured quite a lot in pretty in pink they all hang out at Molly ringwald character works there and one of the posters on the wall is the. It's a poster of the album art jesse johnson's revue and he just fall out of your chair. Now mccafe's reckon shit would have been funny dude a here ago. The song there's a jesse johnson song called get to know you. That is on the pretty in pink soundtrack. Not the biggest fan of that one Anyways needless to say john hughes was a big fan of jesse johnson and he was a fan of jesse johnson's revue So let's dive right into a track from that album so again. I don't have that much to say about his solo stuff other than he fucking killed it with his army the or more needed Yeah did everything about this record. Man the the cover. Oh dude i've got it right here. Man i've been i've been looking at it. Yeah like the the. The the aesthetic of the covers is perfect. Yeah and it just uses that that minneapolis cool. You.

"Man. I mean that's not even a so you faded out. Yeah so i mean that's what's great about About the minneapolis sound right. Yeah exactly prince's a sound here that he the he cultivated. It's like else. Are you going to hear a guitar. Solo like that in a funk song you know or or a new wave song right. Yeah did. And i'm glad you say that because i'm going to read off a list here of distinguishing characteristics. So yeah it's a form of funk but here's what makes the minneapolis sound so. The synthesizers replaced the horns And their use more as accent than as phil or background. The rhythm is often faster and less syncopated than traditional funk. Owed much to the new wave sound guitars while usually played clean for rhythm. Parts were frequently much louder and more aggressively processed during solos than in traditional funk. The bottom of the sound was less bass heavy than traditional funk. Drums and keyboards filled more of the bottom and the drums were more highly processed than in traditional funk. It's just cool man. it's just a cool sound. Like they were saying they had a whole song about it. They called it cool. Is anybody hot. Didn't think so because are cool. Yeah they didn't have to explain it to us but in case anybody was confused. Like hey we're gonna spill it out for you. So the time really skyrocketed after prince starred in the movie purple rain. now i'm gonna Admit my ignorance here dude. Now moments afraid to admit this. I've never watched pro-russian. Well i haven't either. But i so i knew. The purple rain was an album of princes. But it didn't realize that it was a soundtrack to a movie called purple rain This is a shahriari ignorance about prince. But yeah did they make an album around the movie or did they make the movie or on. Their album was a music written. I purple Per purple rain was supported with its soundtrack album of the same name. So prince wrote the songs for the movie he plays a character called the kid loosely based off himself. You know acute. Let's just let's just tell it like it is. The purpose of the film was to sell records. That's why they sure they just through all of these bands on they're all under the same label rare. Weren't these all thirty warner bros. Yeah says here dude. Purple rain was developed to showcase prince's talents and the film contains several concert sequence and distributed by warner brothers. Hello yeah so so so. There isn't that i brought. That up is because the you know once that this movie came out and it did really well actually The time they fucking skyrocketed and one of the songs featured in the film by the time was co written by jesse johnson. So that's the reason. I bring it up because this is a little bit of what jesse johnson was able to bring to the table as far as like song writing skills go. We're gonna play a little bit of that and then we're gonna get to jesse johnson's revue the songs great dude. I don't know if you've heard it before you may have but so. This is the time the song that was featured in purple rain. It shows up in their album. Ice cream castle from nineteen eighty-four. The song is called jungle. Love.

"Unique. You know it's awesome did so. This is all around the same time late seventies early eighties so in detroit they were mixing funk with synth pop but like with a more. Disco bend yeah. Minneapolis sound with prince and bands. Like the time Morris day who's the lead singer of the time but they were all kind of throwing that funky stank on new wave. Do what a fucking awesome. So like i know man you know. I feel like the word. Fusion doesn't get used or does get used but for a very specific fusion to me. I was think of jazz rock fusion. But it's safe to say that that the fusion of all of these genres right for sure. Yeah it is. It is a sub genre of funk. Yeah and i'm going to read this straight. Pull the straight from kapadia but this is a pretty great summary of it and they're just going to jump right into our first song so actually not no. let's play let's play a song i Okay so i'm going to play a couple of songs from the time so jesse. Johnston played lead guitar for the time again. They were all brought together by prince. Prince was longtime childhood friends with morris day who's lead singer in the time so jesse johnson didn't really he. He wrote a few songs. Co wrote a few songs for the time but really just want to show off the minneapolis. Sound if you're not familiar with it yet. So i'm gonna play a song from their second studio album. Called what time is it. Do all of their song names have the word time in it. Not know but he he pretty much like at least once in a lot of songs. Ask what time it is like. What time is it all right. So i've got a couple of clips to play here. So this is a song again off of their second studio album. What time is it from. Nineteen eighty to the song is called seven.
