Jack White’s only encounter with the late music legend Prince left a lasting impression.
During Wednesday’s broadcast of “The Late Show,” White recalled the “really solid advice” he received from the “Purple Rain” singer.
It was, “Don’t let anyone tell you how to play the guitar.”
Prince spoke the words of wisdom as the pair spoke at an after party, White told host Stephen Colbert.
Colbert asked White if he had indeed ever had anyone tell him how to play.
“No. One of your sound people told me to decline sooner, so maybe…” he joked in response.
