Exploring the musical legacy of Prince and beyond
Join Pepé Willie, the "Godfather of the Minneapolis Sound" in conversation with co-author Tony Kiene as they talk about their new book, If You See Me: My Six-Decade Journey in Rock and Roll.
From the 1960s R&B scene in New York City to the Minneapolis Sound of the 1980s, Pepé Willie has been up close and personal with some of the most explosive American-grown music and musicians of the latter half of the twentieth century. In this autobiography he describes his journey through the music industry and chronicles his experiences working alongside Prince and becoming a mentor to other musicians in Prince's circle, such as André Cymone, Morris Day, and more. Pepé himself was inducted into the Minnesota Black Music Hall of Fame in 1988.
