Why Trump’s Inauguration Was So Sleazy, Even For Washington

Presidential inaugurations can seem like a parody of D.C. influence-peddling. Corporate lobbyists, foreign dignitaries and political mega-donors converge on the capitol for days of glitzy events, waltzing alongside incoming administration officials at inaugural balls and networking with members of the U.S. Congress over plates of lobster. As reports proliferate about New York prosecutors’ investigation into President Trump’s 2017 inaugural committee, it can be difficult to tease out the stand...

NAMM 2019: Four who worked with Prince talk about what made him a legend

Morris Hayes was Prince’s musical director and New Power Generation keyboardist for years, but it took a little time to figure out the mercurial musical genius at first, he said Saturday during a panel at the NAMM Show on Prince and what made who and what he was. “I’ll put it to you like this,” Hayes said in response to a question about how Prince ran his rehearsals. “What I figured out was that there were five of them, five Princes.
