    Jeff Loomis Band stolen gear

    From Facebook:

    Jeff Loomis
    Last night after our show in St. Louis, our tour van was broken into as we were grabbing a bite to eat before our drive to Dallas. We were parked in a well-lit area in front of the restaurant. In the ten to fifteen minutes that it took for us to order our food and eat, all of our personal items such as laptops, cameras, musical equipment, cell phones, passports and money were stolen. We came outside to find the lock on the driver side door popped out of the van, and promptly called the police. A report has been filed and the van was fingerprinted, but the leads don’t seem promising. The police stated that this is apparently a common occurrence in the area. We are all in disbelief, but are very fortunate for everyone to be okay.

    After discussing the situation as a group, we would like to try to continue on with this tour, but to be able to do this, we will need your help. We have all taken a huge hit financially, and we cannot continue on without some sort of support. We have set up a paypal account for any amount of donations to assist us for the duration of the tour.

    Below is the PayPal e-mail to make donations to.

    Any and all support will be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you,
    Jeff Loomis Band and crew

    This is a shame. What is wrong with people It looked like Jeff was playing a Schecter with custom graphics on it when he was here, so I hope the dude is dumb enough to try to pawn it off and he gets busted, and all the gear is returned.

    Wonder why more guys don't get GPS trackers for at least some of their gear. I remember seeing some builder that offered installing a tracker during the build as an up charge. Probably expensive, but I'd imagine less so than losing everything. Or not, who knows.

    For fucks sake....this has happened so many times now....don't leave the gear unattended! I hope they catch these thieves. God damn any good news today?

    What a bunch of cock suckers. That's a drag, as well as a shared concern among touring musicians.
