No. The apologists are using that as an excuse for disrespecting Prince's home.

Even if they were it's no excuse.

That's what I thought, and some of the people here are falling in line, trying to get everyone to think that they are replica's, and spreading that rumor. neutral

Fools carrying on like this... they planned their photo to get attention. And they're only inspiring someone else to try and top them. For those that think these fools should have "the right" to do this, what comes next? Some other fool standing on the piano because Prince did that and they paid for a VIP experience?! Give me a break.

If anything the fault lies with Paisley Park staff who not only allowed it but took pictures then put the pictures on a USB drive and gave it to the people in question.

You're chasing your tail, going round in circles with the same point about the employee. Only now you've added the replica angle to your repetitive self serving arguement. You know very well these are not excuses but you keep on regurgitating the same tripe.Do you have anything else to add? I doubt it because you know you can't justify this blatant disregard for Prince with any validity. Prince wanted a museum and he opened up his home to us..and this is the thanks he gets.

PP did not say they are replicas.. but I will wait for them to confirm that they are in fact Shecter made cloud guitars. It's definitely a Schecter copy he commissioned for selling at concerts and through his online club. I think he even gave a few away to some of his staff back in the day. Maybe he used them for rhearsal.. or maybe he had boxes of them laying around in the garage.. who knows.. but i'm confident what we are looking at here is a copy, same goes for the one in the Purple Rain room.

That still doesn't make it ok to disrespect any of the equipment there. It still belongs to Paisley Park / Prince. No excuse.

Given I haven't been to Paisley Park, how exactly is my argument self serving? I just don't like bullys, and I think this thread comes close. Especially given they're fans.

Are you saying that there is no difference between a guitar Prince played and one that he never actually touched but was made to look like one he did?

1) We're told he wanted a museum, he never said it publically or took any steps towards turning it into a museum.

2) I don't see how sitting on a piano is "disregard" for Prince. Given these people took the time to visit and pay for the VIP tour... they clearly have regard for Prince.

3) It's a guided tour - why wouldn't the operators have replica instruments for fans on the VIP tour to play about with? Seems like a no brainer?

The point of it being a Museum is to display the authentic items, not replicas, that's what being a museum means.


Plenty of museums use replicas in instances when the original can't be displayed for whatever reason.

Do you think the Liberace museum was letting fools like this take photos at his mirrored Baldwin, his costumes were encased in glass and the pianos were on risers that spun around, The same with Graceland it's all authentic not replicated. And they had fans who loved them and honored the opportunity to finally see it in person. Without acting like they were at Disneyland ,


The Graceland website has a "fan photos" section... because it's literally free marketing.
https://www.graceland.com/fanphotos/ - Check out these disgusting & disrespectful fans dishonoring their heros legacy.

so even if they threw a replica in ,these idiots who dishonored what sacred opportunity they just experienced just blew it, as well as the guides there , they are just as much at fault! But I highly doubt that the cloud is a replica. Which makes me want to puke even more.

What's so sacred about a replica guitar?

While I completely think that the photos' are disresepectfult etc.., I do think we just need to in the spirit of Prince not hate on these people who made a mistake.

I think calling out the management via twitter by Londell is not the way to manage a business and I would prefer if they stayed of social media and get their business hat on. Sort it out behind closed doors, fix the processes so it won't happen again and move on to something more interesting. This is the problem with social media. People forget how to have a real life conversation to reolve issues.

It was wrong, it was stupid, don't kill the people and fix it so that the rules are better enforced. It's not rocket science or is it?

Posing in a provocative way is disrespectful, but pimping Prince 'The brand' with a tent ful of tat isn't? Hmmm.

Music News: Paisley Park responds to concerns about fans touching Prince’s instruments

The Current's Jay Gabler exercises restraint when in the presence of Prince's piano at Paisley Park.

Prince fans have been expressing concerns about the fact that some VIP tour attendees at Paisley Park have been taking liberties while posing for photos with a purple piano and guitar played by Prince. In some photos, fans are seen lying on the piano, putting their feet up a la Jerry Lee Lewis, fingering the frets on the guitar, and even seeming to lick the guitar. “This shouldn’t have happened,” tweeted the venue, promising to “ensure policies in place around controlled photos in Studio B are always respected and enforced.”

1/ Purple family and fans – thank you for highlighting this matter. We hear you and are in full agreement.

2/ We are all guests in His home and will ensure policies in place around controlled photos in Studio B are always respected and enforced.

3/ This shouldn’t have happened and was a breach of those policies.

4/ We will take necessary steps to ensure all on-site guides are aware of the rules and enforce them diligently to protect and honor Prince

5/ We are listening and we always will. #Prince #PurpleArmy@PaisleyPark

I think people forget that he was their brother. I don't have siblings but I have people I've grown up with almost as siblings and I know no matter what issues transpire between us I know my reaction when to others disrespecting them. I think people forget their own humanity sometimes.

Most of that 'tat' was previous merchandise that was available for sale when he was alive.
