Two rhythm guitars on Diamonds and Pearls tour?

Was Prince having one or two rhythm guitars on D&P tour? I ask this question because i thought Levi was the only rhythm guitar but i've seen a live video with Toney M playing guitar on tour.So was Toney really playing or what?

Toney M? Can he play anything?

Tony occasionally picked up a guitar on the Act 1 tour as well. Can't say his contributions were particularly notable/audible though.

Tony did play, but it wasn't even near every song. The only song I can remember him playing on was 7. I can't remember if there were others.

I have read some biographies of Prince and remember seing Tony M credits for rapping and guitar,i thought the guitar part was a mistake until i've seen footage of Toney playing.so was he audiable?

He 'played' on Live4Love too I recall.

No, I'm sure he was playing, I just don't think it was anything very flashy.

For me it don't have to be flashy,it's enough if he played a decent rhythm guitar,miss Hallo cant even do that and it gives some credibility to Toney

Didn't he play on Willing And Able as well? I have this visual of him playing guitar in that video. Long time ago I've seen it though. Could be mistaken.

Yes, Tony played guitar on the live version of Willing and Able on the D&P video collection.

I'm sure he also played guitar in The Morning Papers video
