Prince Should Pay For Breaking Borrowed Guitar, Says Vernon Reid
Vernon Reid, Living Colour founder and guitarist, believes Prince needs to pay for breaking a guitar on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” last Friday.
After performing his song “Bambi,” the rock and soul legend tossed the rare 1961 Epiphone Crestwood guitar about 10 feet into the air, breaking it.
There’s one major problem. The guitar was reportedly a loaner from Captain Kirk Douglas from The Roots, Fallon’s house band.
“Prince needs to write a CHECK,” Reid commented on Twitter Wednesday. “Smash SOMEONE ELSE’S 60’S ERA GUITAR & WALK AWAY?! NOPE.”
WTF?! His PurpleMajesty needs a reality check. What in the Fuckerosity of Fuckedness? What kind of Fuckery is this, for fuck’s sake?
