Backstage at the Spectrum in Philadelphia way back in June of 1978. It's a shot off of the only roll of film and prints I ever developed myself. I would kill for the negatives today, as I love this study of Prince in a pensive mood.

Awesome photo! It takes me back.
at the reunion, we started rattling off infamous quotes from Prince Paul. I wish I could remember them all....
Perhaps we could start a list that can be added to over time... here's a couple.....
"Wherever you go.... there you are."
"She sits amongst the cabbage and peas."
any more out there?

Jeff, I was in the Blue Unit Alley in 1976 with Prince Paul. Ohhh, yes, he had some infamous quotes... I remember those two for sure! Never did understand "cabbage and peas", LOL.
One of his infamous quotes that sticks out most in my mind I can't repeat here, but I'd be interested in hearing more about him, too.
He was one of a kind, indeed, a most memorable character.
