This article belongs to the story Prince creates psychedelic funk on Around The World In A Day.
As can be read in the article mentioned above, Prince recorded his first ever video interview on October 27th, 1985, which was broadcast later that same year (on November 13th, 1985, to be exact) on MTV. Prior to the interview Prince And The Revolution had staged a mini concert in order to record the America video.
Before the interview a number of people from the audience were selected to accompany Prince during the interview. The place of action was the stage on which Prince And The Revolution had just given their spectacular performance. The questions, which were asked by Prince’s manager Steve Fargnoli, had been provided by the MTV News Desk.
The question remains whether or not Prince made the right decision in releasing this interview. What do you think? Leave a comment beneath the video!
