HAPA took pictures with Sound Tech Craig Eichorn, who was the high school classmate and bandmate of "Prince".  HAPA quotes Eichorn as saying about Prince:  "From when we were 16 in high school together to last month, he was exactly the same. No one ever, even once, saw him out in public where he was not "dressed to the nines".  He always looked like he was ready to go on stage." 
    HAPA stopped by at the home of PRINCE at Paisley Park while in Minneapolis
    After they left ho'okupu, a girl named Malia came running up to the group; Her grandmother said she was named after President Obama's daughter.
