Reclusive pop superstar Prince played a surprise gig at a Golden Globe aftershow party on Sunday night (25JAN04) - but refused to sing.

The Purple Rain legend took to the stage at the glitzy IN STYLE magazine bash in Los Angeles, but only played the guitar on tracks BRICKHOUSE and Kiss, leaving other bandmembers to provide vocals.

His performance - which kicked off at midnight - drew gasps from assembled celebrities including Jessica Simpson, Nick Lachey, Alicia Silverstone, KEVIN COSTNER and Clint Eastwood.

Other notable attendees included party-loving sisters PARIS and NICKY HILTON, who were attending several parties at the venue - the BEVERLY HILTON Hotel, which was once owned by the grandfather Barron Hilton.
