Morris was recruited by Prince in the early 1980's to lead a
Morris and his aide Jerome put on a high energy show and
large following with hits such as, "The Time", "Ice
Cream Castle", "Jungle Love",
and "The Bird".
Appearing in Prince's "Purple Rain" movie gave the band
boost. As happens with many successful groups, Morris went
his own way and
the Time dissolved. Jerome Benton and a couple of the
others from the
original band rejoined and are currently enjoying a fair
amount of success for
the last several years. If Morris Day and the Time are
in your area, do
yourself a favor and you'll see a hard working group and
hear some great music,
just like the good old days.
