This meeting occurred after the opening concert of Prince’s first tour at the Roxy Theater in Los Angeles on November 28, 1979.

Prince met Bob Marley backstage at the Roxy Theater after the concert. The meeting was arranged by Don Taylor, who was toying with the idea of having Prince and Marley record a track together. “What the result of this might have been, however, I will never know”, Taylor later said. “When we called on Prince he met us in this skimpy leopard g-string undergarment, which immediately aroused Bob’s Jamaican macho feelings and so our stay was brief as Prince’s g-string and Bob’s discomfort was shown all over his face.”

Amazing Story!
