The ghosts of Pete Townshends Guitars

Pete Townsend nearly always smashed his guitar at the end of The Who gigs. To me this akin to smashing your glass after a toast the glass cannot then be debased by another inferior toast so with his guitars they have fulfilled their potential and cannot be then corrupted by an inferior preformance.

Do objects absorb some of the spirit of the emotion of what surrounds them during their lifetime and if they do then what happens to them on their demise? Does the object take on the ''vibe' like a house does? just like when you walk into one and you know that it has been a happy or sad house. A guitar has been played with enthusiam passion and feeling will the spirit of the guitar absorb this?
First version is the short one 3.40 minutes and the second is the long more complete version at 6.20 minutes
