    Detroit Purple Party

    Last night in Detroit, I met Jerome, Greg, and the infamous Wally!

    Jerome was cool.  When the ladies were around he was the very picture of his 'Tricky'/Morris' valet persona.  But I talked to him for like 15 minutes and where he let his guard down.  We talked about his days as a roadie and how some of the Rolling Stones' roadies were trying to incite him to blows, that's when Prince pulled him aside and put him to use on stage to protect him a little bit.  Beyond that, we talked about football and mosquitoes.  It was a real conversation.  He introduced me to Wally, who was just asked about his song by someone else.  Wally told me in an aside "Prince gave that to me.  I got the tape and it is never coming out of the box!"  Greg was a bit more aloof, but we talked about his fur hats.  He didn't sweat through as many as you might guess.  Jill Jones was around, as was Fast Freddie and Nat Morris (host of the old Detroit dance show, The Scene).  The party was so-so, but I'm glad i stuck it out to have that moment with Jerome and Wally.
