8:37 am
>> i have known him for years. we met in new york city when he played the academy of music on 14th street. i can't even remember what year that was. that was in the 80s. that was amazing. it was mind boggling. and ever since that night he and i became very, very good friends. we onlt saw each other in the recording studios when i was in l.a. doing the film scores. but what was really amazing when i started to work on the resort down in turks and he moved there too. >> you performed together too?
8:38 am
concert in new orleans the year before last, july 4th of 2014, and as part of my repertoire, you know, when doing the live shows, i played songs that i have written and produced with other artists and let's dance was one of the big ones and prince loved that song and he came out on stage with us. greg: we are hearing conflicting things, we heard from a good friend and he was a health nut, so meticulous about caring for himself. tmz is reporting that the death is probably drug related, there may have been an opiate addiction and did he struggled with substance abuse?
8:39 am
that at all. he seemed, you know, i never saw prince have an alcoholic drink. that is something i would have noticed because at the time when we would hang out in clubs, i drank quite a bit. i haven't had a drink in 22 years. we used to go out and see each other all the time back in the day. so you know, our recent relationship has been really wonderful and pure and it's been cool. i am the only artist that prince has ever interviewed. he interviewed me a couple of years ago, before doing the concert together on july 4th, and he would have brought up drugs, because he knew i was a
8:40 am
of stuff, we never went down that road. rosanna: so when you think back on prince and your relationship with prince, what's your favorite memory, like, what came to mind before you went to sleep last night? >> that is very easy. years ago i was in england and produszing duran and i was in london a number of times doing records and prince famously is known for doing after parties and performing, and i walked into a club and i have no idea how he could have spotted me, those were the days there was smoke in the night clubs and i walked into the club and he was on the stage and some other people were up on the stage and jamming and when i walked into the club he spied me and said,
8:41 am
rogers and stopped the band and stopped playing and he was playing the guitar at the time and invited me up to the stage and gave me a guitar and now this man has the funk and he sat down on the key boards and started to sing and play and i gave me his guitar and he started play james brown songs or something. rosanna: wow, what a giant moment. that is amazing. wow, nile, you have so much going on, you are coming to "good day new york" in may and honoring bono and president jimmy carter. are there tickets available? >> not many. you hosted that for us last year. it is packed. if people want to come and find

(vo) if you have type 2 diabetes, you may know what it's like to deal with high... and low blood sugar. januvia (sitagliptin) is a once-daily pill that, along with diet and exercise, helps lower blood sugar. januvia works when your blood sugar is high and works less when your blood sugar is low, because it works by enhancing your body's own ability to lower blood sugar. plus januvia, by itself, is not likely to cause weight gain or low blood sugar
8:50 am
patients with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. tell your doctor if you have a history of pancreatitis. serious side effects can happen, including pancreatitis which may be severe and lead to death. stop taking januvia and call your doctor right away if you have severe pain in your stomach area which may be pancreatitis. tell your doctor right away and stop taking januvia if you have an allergic reaction that causes swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat, or affects your breathing or causes rash or hives. kidney problems sometimes requiring dialysis have been reported. some people may develop severe joint pain. call your doctor if this happens. r using januvia with a sulfonylurea or insulin p may cause low blood sugar. to reduce the risk, your doctor may p prescribe a lower dose of the sulfonylurea or insulin. your doctor may do blood tests before and during treatment to check your kidneys. if you have kidney problems a lower dose may be prescribed. side effects may include upper respiratory tract infection, stuffy or runny nose, sore throat, and headache. for help lowering your blood sugar talk to your doctor about

rosanna: we are remembering prince this morning and trying to figure what happened to him. 57 years old. years ago that was old, these
8:52 am
57 is young. greg: we are hearing from tmz, they have got pretty good sources and when his plane landed a couple of days ago in illinois, it wasn't for the flu as the prince team said, he was suffering from a sort of overdose, a drug overdose. rosanna: of opiates. we are not saying that is the cause, we are trying to figure out about more about opiate addictions. dr. raj is with us this morning. if you are an opiate user, it is hard to know they are taking it. >> yes, that is something like heroin or a prescription painkiller. there is a range of opiates and there is a rise in heroin abuse
8:53 am
abuse and there are serious consequences, sometimes death and slowing down the breathing, there is a drug antidote to it. it can be used to reverse the affects and according to tmz that is what happened. it is not confirmed. rosanna: they are saying when he got off the plane it was an overdose type of situation and gave him the shot. >> the reps are saying it is flu, it is unusual to have the flu and give a concert and dance party. that is not making a lot of sense. rosanna: opiate addictions, opiates, i have heard they play a number on your heart, they can stop your heart. >> absolutely. they are very strong medications that affect your breathing and heart rate and brain activity
8:54 am
body, dp you have too much, you can die from it, it is so dangerous and why even if given a prescription, you have to use it sparingly. >> no one knows for sure what happened. we have two close friends of prince in the past hour tell us he was a health nut, and my tick louse on what he put in his body. rosanna: well, i didn't realize he had hip issues. >> yes, sere issues with both of the hips and he was a candidate for the surgeries and he didn't want the surgery. if you have severe hip pain there could be pain prescription medications involved with that. we don't know that yet. greg: thank you, dr. raj.
