No, they are not related. Morris Day was his onetime bandmate in Grand Central.
The band Grand Central was formed by Prince ('Prince') Rogers Nelson and André Simon (‘Cymone’) Anderson in 1974, comprising Prince’s cousin Charles Smith (on drums), André (bass), Linda Anderson (André’s sister, keyboards) and Terry Jackson and William Daugherty (percussion).
The band was later joined by Daugherty’s cousin, Morris Day, to replace Charles as drummer. The band was renamed Champagne in 1976.
Prince may be gone, but his signature style and iconic status is living on in more ways than one. V Magazine is sharing never-before-seen photos of the Grammy winner from a previous photo shoot. Whether you're a life-long fan or just discovering the "Purple Rain" singer, the images capture a man who wasn't like the rest of music's biggest stars.
