    BrownMark’s song Bang Bang is a great example of his percussive sound he’s describing. Unfortunately, he never really got to do it on Prince’s music, that I’ve noticed.

    Wait. He doesn’t touch alcohol, but he has a drink once in a blue moon? Once an alcoholic, always an alcoholic. If you have one drink, you’ll have many.

    Brownmark co-produced a fantastic album for songstress Stacy Lattisaw back in the late 80’s; Her best album in my opinion.
