Prince is freak awesome I thank him for help me changing into my alter ego Dark Star I thank him he know what I mean
Hey Daniel, Don't you know what Prince is really about? Come on, did you really think he was going to give you his precious guitar? HA HA!!! If he hands you his guitar, and you are a true fan you, you better lick it, kiss it, hug it, honor that few seconds cause you had the privilege to hold that sh**!!! Handing the guitar to the audience has been somewhat of a routine for him as of late. He don't owe you a damn thing.
NO MORE CANDY 4 U!!
Here is what 'Daniel', at TMZ.com reported on last night's show:
I was lucky enough to sit front row during a taping of "The Tonight Show." I was there for one reason, and one reason only -- to see Prince. After suffering through Paul Giamatti and Emma Roberts, Prince came on and performed "Dreamer."
As the song was winding down, Prince took off his guitar and walked out into the crowd -- I had no idea what he was doing. He walked right up to me and just simply handed me his guitar and walked away. I stood there stunned for about 20 seconds while my friend Trent went nuts. We both kinda strummed the guitar before I turned around and held it up to the crowd triumphantly.
After another 30 seconds or so, someone came around and retrieved the guitar. Now, I was all excited about this whole thing -- calling and texting everyone I can think of. But when I came to work today, everyone said the same thing -- PRINCE OWES YOU A GUITAR. I believe Harvey's quote was, "You're a schmuck for giving it back."
Peersonally, I would've took the guitar and ran!! There is NO WAY I would be givin that guitar back without a fight unless Prince himself asked for it back. Love the new CD(s)! "4Ever", "Crimson and Clover" and "Wall of Berlin" are favs!
Oh Dr. FB, this cleared up so many thoughts running wild in my head. I'm happy Daniel didn't get the guitar, I'd have to track him down.
Haha Rebecca ...yeah u aren't the only ....But Prince was looking better than ever and I was wanting to lick the TV... As far as the guitar is concerned...I would have reacted the same way Daniel did ( which the look on his face was priceless) but wouldn't think for a minute that I was keeping the damn thing...
Prince DOES give! He gives us GOOD MUSIC!!! and on top of that, we're graced with his presence! that's ALL!!!
If I knew beforehand that I was to be chosen to hold someone's guitar for a minute, but then had to give it back, then I would be totally cool with that...but, as someone that was watching the show, I was so impressed with Prince's generosity to just give some random dude a guitar! I even told my boyfriend, who is a guitarist, all about it, and about how giving that was. Then I watched TMZ, and heard Daniel's story. Now Prince looks kind of like a jerk, but I am also not in tune with his tradition. For a famous guitarist to let someone hold their guitar, is a giving act in itself. So, Prince isn't really a jerk...
"..Princey needs 2 learn 2 GIVE, that’s all I’m saying.." ------------------------------------------------------------------------- WOW..!! oke...
P owes Daniel guitar BIG TIME, dude is loaded..sorry Mr P but I'm with Daniel ;) Princey needs 2 learn 2 GIVE, that's all I'm saying.. All thanx 2 Tao Peace and <3
Forgot to mention, tickets are for the Nokia theatre show at 7. Loge seats section 201, row L. I know they aren't the greatest, but they are tickets to the show.
Attention P fans, I played my hand at both ticketmaster and Lotusflo w3r and have 2 extra tickets to sell. Face value plus service charge, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org by NOON 3.28.09 if interested.
Prince is cool! But when he handed that dude his guitar I was seriously thinking RUN! that's what I would have did.... they'd have to chase me a couple miles, catch me, in order for me to release it.
Another wonderful Dr. Fruitcake post... Daniel said himself he gave the guitar back, but his co-workers said he should have kept it. He should have kept it... if Prince handed me his guitar, I wouldn't give it back, so yes, I'd call Prince an "indian giver." And no, that's not racist, you politically correct wackjobs.
This dude who had the nerve to be painted as a HARDCORE. Should know the drill by now, Unless he's attended under 3 shows in his life. besides the Hardcores know each other lol
Obviously, Daniel needs to get out more. I mean, did he really think that Prince was giving him such a beautiful instrument which he obviously had no idea what to do with it! In the famous words of Prince to Liz Taylor during the "Dirty Mind" tour at the Great Western Forum in LA, "If I gave it to you, you wouldn't know what to do with it!" Just can't get that image out of my head! ( :
Look at my sweetie. Strong enough to do all that. Oy..(little love sigh) (loved the eye shadow the other day btw)
I will "hold" anything he gives me.....~smile~....Anyway, YAY...going to Leno!!! BTW....loooooove new song "4ever".....anyone else?? damn, can't get it out of my mind...
I would only accept a guitar from him if he promised to teach me how to play it!!!Come on Prince whatcha waiting for! lmao :) Dude had what I call "Milemarker" those moments in life when you meet someone that you admire,a celebrity etc.Those exciting memorable moments in life that you will never forget!Bask in the afterglow!
