Electric guitar saved Prince from going bald

London: Pop superstar Prince believes playing the electric guitar his entire life has stopped him from going bald.

The 52-year-old pop legend, who can play 27 different
instruments, is convinced the electricity that flows through a
guitar when he strums it is the reason he still has luscious
locks, Daily Mirror online reported.

"Playing electric guitar your whole life does
something to you. I`m convinced all that electricity racing
through your body made me keep my hair," Prince said.

Prince, who has released over 30 albums during his
career, also admits he can`t "function" properly if he can`t
record songs.

The `Purple Rain` singer, who releases his new album
`20TEN` for free in the UK this Saturday, said, "Music is my
life. It`s my trade. If I can`t get it out of my head I can`t
function. Someone told me recently they saw me at my peak, but
how do they know when my peak is? I think I`m improving all
the time. When I listen to my old records I`m ashamed of how I
played them."
