    As you can imagine, this has completely disabled our tour. When you take a musician's instruments you remove their livelihood.

    That sucks ass. I hope enough people hear about this to make it unsellable somewhere down the line.

    In 1993, we had just played a small club and after loading up and locking the trailer we decided to go back in the club and watch my friends band. When we came out the trailer had been busted into and most of my drummers huge kit was gone as well as my PRS Custom 24. Pretty much ended that band right there, we where all poor ass kids with no jobs and his kit was expensive (huge Neil Peart fan) so that was that. I hope they bust these fuckers.

    This is incredibly unfortunate. To me it is insane how many of these established artists have had gear stolen in the past years.

    Guthrie Govan and his band.
    Jeff Loomis.
    Animals as Leaders.
    Reb Beach.
    It's crazy to me.

    You spelled Assholes wrong. But that doesn't make this any less shitty.
