"Purple Pain." A simple play on words, yet it carries so much weight for the Roots' guitarist Captain Kirk Douglas.
After performing "Bambi" on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon," the artist forever known as Prince-- who had borrowed Kirk's 1961 Epiphone Crestwood for the performance -- topped off his rockin' appearance by tossing the guitar up into the air and letting it drop. Normally, this would be considered pretty standard bad-ass rock legend behavior, but damaging a instrument guitar is just plain uncool. And when the word "uncool" becomes even remotely applicable to Prince, something ain't right.
After posting a picture of the smashed guitar -- which he planned to u Douglas tweeted, "Maybe it's because I'm a dad but I think framing the guitar is a little like rewarding bad behavior." According to Death and Taxes, Prince also refused to autograph Douglas' wrecked axe, rubbing salt in the musician's fresh wound.
It's not all bad, though. Tweeting at Living Colour's Vernon Reid, who was angry about the incident, Kirk wrote, "For the record, Prince did apologize. His people reached out and made arrangements to take care of damages. Guitar's in the shop."
