  1. The Prince Podcast – Susan Rogers Interview –

    I have so enjoyed this interview.

    i love hearing the eyewitness accounts and Susan’s take on situations we’ve only heard about.

    i agree with you, michael, that his unreleased tapes should not be ‘finished.’ I don’t believe susan knows what prince prince’s final ailment was, which is fine, it should matter and it doesn’t.

    she was kind of talking about stuff that’s been in the media, which is straw grasping. prince had his operation in 2010 and the pain med addiction was a recent event due to terminal illness (according to his sister).

    that aside, i don’t agree that prince was not as funky as james or sly.

    sly was a funky pop artist who could have had a great career but drugs kept him from showing up to gigs…we never knew if he was going to be there…lol! luckily we saw his band on tv.

    much like tupac, his great words did not equal the ability to follow through.

    in any case larry drove the funk of sly and prince had larry.

    maceo and bobby byrd drove the jt’s and prince had maceo.

    prince was the funkiest brother on 2 legs.

    james was good, but you didn’t always understand what he was saying, but he was really something when he came on the scene in the 60’s.

    i saw him in the 80’s and he was so high he didn’t know where he was (Beverly theatre, l.a.). we were so disappointed, to say nothing of his personal life as a batterer.

    prince wasn’t perfect, but he was an artist…a real artist.

    sly started out as one, james was a businessman.

    lastly, susan may have not realized it but ‘adore’ became the ‘black national anthem of love’ and i’m surprised you didn’t tell her that.

    thanks for keeping the purple flame alive.

  3. Prince Engineer Susan Rogers Lecture (Montréal 2016) | Red Bull Music Academy

    Susan Rogers dropped out of high school in Southern California to teach herself how to be a sound engineer and technician. By 25, she was working for Crosby, Stills and Nash at their Rudy Records studio. Later, in 1983, Rogers heard that Prince was looking for an engineer and went on to spend five years working for him in Minneapolis and L.A on albums like Purple Rain. The result was a working relationship that would change her life forever.

    Rogers went on to record, mix and/or produce artists such as the Jacksons, Laurie Anderson, David Byrne and the Barenaked Ladies. But nowadays she focuses on the academic side of things. She holds a doctorate in psychology from McGill University and is now Associate Professor and director of the Berklee Music Perception and Cognition Laboratory. Her research focuses on auditory memory, psychoacoustics and the perception of musical signals. In her lecture at the 2016 Red Bull Music Academy, Rogers discussed the intricacies of listening, becoming a producer and her memories of working with Prince.
