That makes two bands this year that I have heard of this happening to. Derek Trucks Band also had all their gear stolen. I never did hear if they caught the pukes that done it. I hope they did and catch these shitheads too.

My band's gear was stolen earlier this summer.. drum set, bass/guitar amps, vocal gear, even old cymbals and crappy cords. Assholes that steal music gear are Not musicians, and if they play music, I hope they fall on a Qtip and explode their worthless eardrums.. or just plain die; a torturous musicless death at that. Sorry guys, I feel the pain!

Man, that blows. You always have to have a guy keeping an eye on the gear.

Mr. Mascis seems to have horrible luck with this kind of thing. I read a couple years back that his home studio burned down which took out quite a bit of his gear then. J Mascis is still one of my alltime favorite guitar players.

No one mentioned when Derek's trailor was stolen. Some worthless crackhead is running around with Duane's amp. Musicians need to be more careful. This shit happens.
