An Oakland, CA man was having the time of his life at Prince‘s concert in Oakland this week when the superstar threw his guitar in the crowd and it landed in his hands.  Almost immediately, a crowd of fans mobbed him and beat him.

The man escaped the mob with bruises, a few cuts, and the guitar, but was told by one of Prince’s stagehands to return the guitar immediately.  He was given a guitar pick branded with Prince’s trademark symbol.

Apparently the man wanted to keep the guitar, and wants the guitar back…
