About Morris Day
His solo projects may not have been quite up to the quality of early gems with the Time, but how can you not love Morris Day, the smooth-talking secondary star of Purple Rain? Sure, his proposed dance craze "Oak Tree" didn't quite catch on, but it did deliver smooth electronic Funk that easily topped Day's tenor voice as he delivered bedroom-styled R&B. And he did have a No. 1 R&B hit with "Fishnet." Day has also spent much of his time developing an acting career -- who can forget Richard Pryor's Moving or the fabulous Andrew Dice Clay vehicle The Adventures of Ford Fairlane? Luckily, in recent years Day has gone back to what he does best: fronting and leading the Time, with his trademark assured delivery and the guarantee of a funky good time.
