Prince’s Last Bassist… MonoNeon…

In his own words...."I remember Prince saying to me, “I saw you before I heard you.”

"I first got to Paisley Park early 2015 – got an email asking, “Are you available to come to Paisley to jam?” And of course I said YEP!! When I got there Judith Hill was there and we started jamming (Prince was there too but listening to us via phone… haha!), not knowing I was going to be her bass player for live shows opening for Prince in Detroit and etc. After many rehearsals and a few shows with Judith I went back home and wasn’t sure if I would ever get back to Paisley. But I got another one of those emails a few months later asking to come back… this time it was to work with Prince – this was late 2015.
mono neon 3I became his bassist for a new band he was forming with Kirk Johnson on drums, Adrian Crutchfield on saxophone and Donna Grantis on guitar. We played various shows at Paisley with Prince. During that time (late 2015/early 2016) I started recording with him. We recorded an album before he kicked off his Piano and a Microphone tour – it was me on bass, Prince on guitar/keyboards/producer, Kirk Johnson on drums and Adrian Crutchfield on sax/EWI. Prince said he was going to release the album and name it, “Black Is The New Black”. During the sessions Prince would bring in an idea, we would build on it, JAM… and record it! If I remember correctly, we recorded about 7 tunes – or maybe more. The only song that was put out from the project was “Ruff Enuff”, which was released January 2016 on TIDAL under the moniker “MONO NEON” (Prince asked to use my name only for the TIDAL release). I’m not sure if the album was finished, but hopefully the material will get heard in the near future."
