Well, Prince definetly was one of the greatest and this guitar solo sure did raise lots of eyebrows
That performance with Petty, Lynne, etc was definitely an eye-opener for me.
You gotta be pretty sure of your friends to just throw the guitar straight up and walk away.
To this day I'd like to know where it went? It just vanished!
My wife has been a fan of his forever. When we first started dating (1990) I had no clue who he was. Over the years, I'd buy her CD's of his, and I'd listen to them, but there's so much production that I found his guitar playing got lost in the mix. When I saw that video, I started paying much closer attention when ever we put on one of his records or CD's. Ya, phenomenal.
The answer is clear-Prince was magical.
RIP TAFKAP and TP
Great thread!!! I grew up liking Prince. I had a cousin that got me into him. We had a few times where we were together and just going through purple rain and singing the whole album when we were driving around.
I think sign of the times was my favorite album but I didn't have them all, so....
Great times. My daughter bought me a CD with 3 albums at goodwill for a few dollars a few months ago. Noice.
@blowtorch thanks for posting that 60 minute segment. Loved it!!
The story I’ve heard is that Prince had done this at other shows and so a roadie was ready and caught it.
Probably the same guy that caught him as he fell backwards.
Yep. Prince was an incredible showman. Saw him twice. Lifetime highlight shows!
In my head I know that his roadie caught the guitar, but in my heart he was throwing it up to George Harrison in the great hereafter.
Beat me to it. I saw one in a music store in the used section around Thanksgiving. Looks nice. Warning....literally the heaviest guitar I have ever held. Easily 10 lbs.
This is as near as I get. A Gig Monster- one of the best necks I've had- a fat V. No idea of it's 'provenance': it's a keeper.
So much about how beloved the guitar was by him yet he had such little respect for others' special guitars. Lost any respect i had for him after reading this. "Oh, I'll just write a check."
That kid is dahani Harrison, George’s son.
Captain Kirk forgave him.
He moved on.
The one person that it actually affected is completely over it.
I don't think I'd take it that way. On one hand had Prince just played the guitar Kirk would have a one minute story now he has a great story with commiseration from Elvis Costello, Jackson Browne, Wendy Melvoin and Chris Rock, he got his car fixed and his guitar was in the play it loud exhibition at MOMA.
And Prince didn't treat his own guitar any better:
A brief history of Prince throwing guitars
Agreed. Not to mention all of the artists that might not have had careers with out him.
