Prince’s Comments On Foo Fighters’ ‘Darling Nikki’ Cover Was Misquoted, Claims His Former Assistant

Prince’s former assistant claims the press misquoted his comments on the Foo Fighters’ “Darling Nikki” cover. Foo Fighters covered the 1984 Purple Rain track in 2003. Prince did not give his blessing. He told Entertainment Weekly that the 15-time Grammy-winning band needed to record his own music.

In 2003, Foo Fighters recorded a cover of Prince’s “Darling Nikki” and released it as the B-side to the Australian version of their single “Have It All”. According to MTV, the cover became so famous that the Foo Fighters started playing it at the end of their shows in 2004.
