In Late 1983, Prince fired Keyboardist Jimmy Jam & Bassist Terry Lewis from the The Time after finding out that they were producing other acts without his knowledge....Prince told Jesse Johnson & Morris Day that "You'll See....They won't make it without me...You'll never hear from those guys again" In 1986....Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis won Grammy For Producer Of The Year For Janet Jackson's "Control" Album & went on to change the sound of Contemporary R&B The Moral Of The Story: NEVER EVER STOP BELIEVING IN YOURSELF !! SOME DOORS WILL CLOSE, PEOPLE WILL HATE & DON'T WANT TO SEE YOU MAKE IT....BUT IT'S UP TO YOU TO PROVE THEM RIGHT OR WRONG !
