A friend of mine who worked as a 'roadie' during the 80's was working at the first Monsters of Rock festival at Castle Donington race track. Rainbow headlined the gig with a great line up. Judas Priest, The Scorpions, Saxon, Riot etc.

As per usual Ritchie trashed his guitar during the set which can be seen here from the 0:49 onwards. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wo7olL6Y3g

As the headliners ended the show my friend made his way towards the trashed guitar. Which was dumped on top of the rigged stack which had previously been on fire. He made his get away during the black out and he still has the guitar today.
