Prince playing

By Andrew


Prince was an old pro by the time he set up to perform "Electric Chair" as part of Saturday Night Live's 15th anniversary special. The same couldn't be said for his young drummer.

Michael Bland made his performance debut on Sept. 24, 1989, joining a reconfigured live band that also included bassist Levi Seacer, guitarist Miko Weaver, keyboardists Dr. Fink and Patrice Rushen, saxophonist Candy Dulfer, and background vocalist Margie Cox. Dulfer, who would also play with Prince regularly over the ensuing years, was on stage with him for the first time, too.
