Morris Day has something to say.
Nothing new there—Morris always has something to say. But this time it’s in print. This November, Da Capo is publishing On Time: A Princely Life in Funk, a memoir from the fabulously gabby bandleader of the Time “centering around his lifelong relationship and association with Prince.”
On Time is an as-told-to, and serving as Morris’ Jerome in this particular endeavor is the ridiculously productive amanuensis-to-the-stars David Ritz, who’s co-authored dozens of just this sort of book, many with African-American music titans like Ray Charles and Etta James. Ritz’s m.o. is to allow his subjects to tell their side of the story, a technique that in his hands yields results that are often more revealing than conventionally probing biographies.
Day tweeted out the news of his upcoming memoir yesterday.
Coming in November! https://t.co/t6Y2Rl7H2B— Morris Day (@TheMorrisDay) March 6, 2019
Oh, and by the way, whatever happened to that Prince memoir that was supposed to be out by the end of last year?
