- Eric Leeds
His brother, Alan Leeds, was the tour manager for Prince in the early 1980s and introduced his brother to Prince not long after the "
Purple Rain" tour. Prince was impressed by Leeds' talents and featured him in the band The Family in 1985. The band was short-lived, but Prince invited Leeds into The Revolution for his "Parade" tour. Leeds brought along long-time friend Matt Blistan, who was renamed Atlanta Blissby Prince.
After the breakup of The Revolution, Prince retained Leeds and Bliss for his succeeding band and used their talents greatly over his next three albums. Bliss left the fold in 1989 but Leeds lent his talents to Madhouse and various Prince projects throughout the years.
In 1991, Leeds released the album "
Times Squared" on Prince's Paisley Park Records, which incorporated rock, pop and jazz sounds.
