Colts owner Jim Irsay buys Prince’s ‘Yellow Cloud’ guitar for $137,500
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay paid $137,500 at auction for Prince’s “Yellow Cloud” guitar, which the late musician played in concert, according to the Associated Press.
Irsay won the guitar, which Prince used in the late 1980s and mid-1990s, at an auction in Beverly Hills on Saturday.
An icon of pop music, Prince passed away on April 21 at the age of 57 from an accidental overdose of fentanyl.
Irsay is a collector of musical instruments, and owns items used by Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead, John Lennon and Ringo Starr of the Beatles and Bob Dylan.
Other items sold at the auction included a lock of late rock legend David Bowie’s hair, which sold for $18,750.
