On Time

After moving to Minneapolis from Natchez, Mississippi, in his early 20s, Alexander O’Neal was a member of several bands before being recruited to sing lead for an up-and-coming ensemble named Flyte Tyme. With members that included Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis and Monte Moir, the band would eventually change its name to The Time.
