somebody broke into my friend Brian's Lexus last month and stole his gig bag with all his pedals in it. It was a green Jansport bag. Also, someone stole my guitar player's Martin with a small hole at the top which had been painted over. This all happened in Memphis. If you guys can help[ that would be great. thanks

Scumbags on crack do this shit. They should be whomped on the head with an ash-bodied Telecaster.

I had my first guitar stolen from me in college. Crack heads is right. Damn thief saw the guitar in its case through a window, broke it and took the guitar. That sucks, I feel for you guys. I hope you catch that s.o.b!

This here is some bullshit. Sadly, here in Philly this shit is regular. Last year the band Film School played here and parked their tourvan in a secure fenced in motel parking lot and someone actually got into the lot, cracked the Club from their steering wheel and drive the van through the fence. I think that only Portland comes close to Philly with bands getting their gear ripped off. No matter how you cut it, it's a safe bet around my neck of the woods that the stolen equipment will be shot up someones arms within an hour. Portland too with all those runaways.....

Flat 5, i'll be sure to smack around anyone with a green Jansport backback that I see below the Mason dixon line.

Wow that really sucks. Toronto is one of the last places I would have expected this happen.

that sucks =( never had really heard these guys before i saw them a few weeks ago and i was blown away. they jammed for about 2.5 hours straight, really barely any singing, lots of trancey drums/guitar and they threw down a very tribal, VERY mean version of the dead's lovelight. great show, go out and support these guys!

Someone stole my Washburn Acoustic guitar (D-12S) from the back of my 4Runner back in 2003 or 2004. This happened in the Northpark neighborhood of San Diego. The guitar is a dreadnought with a crack on the front. Can you guys keep an eye out for it? Thanks.

That sucks, man. I remember when this shit happened to Buddy Cage in NYC. I read in Guitar Player that according to police reports: "70% of guitars that are reported stolen are taken out of locked cars". Some people suck. Those axes are their livelyhood and some no playin' crackhead probably fenced them for one night of junkie fun.
