Prince tosses guitar to fan, takes it back

Pop legend Prince seriously disappointed one devoted fan in the Bay area by taking back a guitar that he thought was given to him.

Perry Litchfield says Prince made eye contact with him at Wednesday's show and then tossed his custom guitar right at him.

He says the crowd mobbed him, but when security pulled him out, he still had the guitar - until a stagehand grabbed it and told him it was just part of the show.

"The stage hand then came back to me, the one that took the guitar away from me and gave me a guitar pick. I'm like, 'OK, is that it?'" Litchfield said with a laugh.

Litchfield can laugh about what happened now, but he still wants that guitar. He says when you throw something into the crowd, it's customary that the people who catch it, get it.

Litchfield paid $750 apiece for two front row tickets to the concert.
