Jimmy Fallon Recalls the Time Prince Accidentally Broke a Guitar on 'The Tonight Show'

Jimmy recalled the time Prince stopped by to perform, but forgot his guitar, according to Variety.

So he borrowed one from The Roots guitarist Kirk Douglas and at the end of the performance he threw “the guitar up to the crowd but there’s no one to catch it…It broke in half,” Jimmy said.

But don’t worry, Prince did pay for it.
