Prince was a huge inspiration in our music and our vision to succeed. Which reminds me of a story from the road…
While on tour, I think it was in Atlanta outside of a club we had just finished playing, a homeless man in a crudely fashioned gorilla costume (you can’t make this stuff up) approached our tour van. We were used to this sort of ridiculousness and didn’t pay much attention — until he grabbed our guitarist Gibson Les Paul and started wailing (air guitar) and singing Purple Rain. It made us all laugh, especially after he referred to himself as the white prince.
Weeks went by and we never forgot him… 2 months later: same club, same homeless guy. We talked to him like old war buddies and it was comforting in a strange way to see him still milling around the same area.
After Prince passed, we were asked to do a tribute to one of Prince’s songs Nothing Compares 2 U. Yes, Prince wrote it. Our version is a bit different, but it was a blast and an honor to get to record the track, especially for a film.
The song is not currently available for sale but as a THANK YOU for being one of our subscribers we want to give it
to you for free – no strings attached.
Download our version of Nothing Compares 2 U
If you like the track you might like our album MMXVI. It’s our latest album and it’s full of glam-rock tunes that we like to think would make Prince proud.
