Editorial Reviews

Review

"Great book! Great storytelling!"―Lenny Kravitz

"[An] entertaining memoir... fans of Prince - and The Time - will be thrilled with this insider view."―Publishers Weekly

"An enticing read... [L]argely a memoir but also, in part, an entertaining commentary."―Soul Tracks

"What if Prince came back and he and Morris got down to settling old scores and giving away secrets? Morris makes it happen, and I devoured this great book!"―Paul Shaffer, author of We'll Be Here for the Rest of Our Lives

"What time is it? It's time for everyone to read Morris Day's memoir. Lean, slick, cooler than Santa Claus, and surprisingly tender, the book not only traces Day's history in Minneapolis funk, but doubles as an intimate recollections of his time with Prince."―Ben Greenman, author of Dig If You Will The Picture: Funk, Sex, God and Genius in the Music of Prince

"A breezy, hard-to-put-down book."―Minneapolis Star-Tribune

"[Day]'s quite a vivid storyteller and the Day/Prince interplay not only works, but it keeps things moving forward. At times, it's a challenge to put On Time down."―Twin Cities Pioneer Press

"A vital, illuminating and wildly entertaining autobiography."―Billboard

"Fortunately, Morris Day's memoir arrives in the same month as his old friend's. Day grew up a few blocks from Prince and played drums in his first band. The two remained close for decades...Day's book has him in conversation with Prince's ghost, arguing about how to tell the story, and gives us details about Prince that he never got to tell his memoirist...Day has a front-row seat for the life of one of the greatest musicians of all time and his book is a worshipful telling of what Prince's rise looked like from his vantage."New York Times Book Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Yeeeeesssssss!!!!!!!
By William E. on October 15, 2019
A Delight! I literally couldn't put this down. When i first heard about the Prince dialog, i thought it sounded gimmicky. I was wrong. It reads like a man who has the voice of his brother Deep in his Soul. I have been a fan of The Time since the summer of '81. This was a compelling and highly entertaining read. Morris has great insight and self awareness. Glad i didn't dismiss this one. A Joy to read! Got to meet him last fall at a Time concert, (see crappy photo). I think this is an essential read for Prince fans, despite some reviews to the contrary. I loved it!
