Happy Birthday to one of our favorite performers of all time, Morris Day.  Our staff has had the pleasure of seeing The Time perform several times and are happy that Morris and the current crew, Original 7ven are still keeping that real 80s funk alive. Morris Day, along with Prince, Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis and Jesse Johnson and the rest of The Time, changed popular music forever and we want to send warm birthday thoughts his way today.

Random Side Note:  We wonder how Morris felt lip-synching over Prince-lead vocals.  In addition, in the interview with Don Cornelius, Morris tells a pretty big fib relating to their “self-contained” production. It is widely believed that Prince was largely responsible for these earlier albums and literally brought Morris in to complete the final vocals.
