Bruno Mars and Morris Day/ Los Angeles Times

Since the Time and Bruno Mars hit it off so well at the Grammys on Sunday, the inevitable question has to be asked: Would the original Time go on tour opening for Bruno, who starts an 85-city tour next month?

So I asked the question backstage. Morris Day didn’t have to contemplate his answer.

“If he calls us and presents the right dollar amount,” said Day.

Then Jerome Benton, Day’s mirror-toting valet, chimed in to the inquiring hometown reporter: “You’d be the road manager.”

Um, only if the dollar amount is right. 

Actually Anderson. Paak has been announced as opening act. But deals can be renegotiated.
