Forget the 360----find that Broadcaster!! :shock:


Always a bummer to see gear stolen from artists, it seems pretty common too.

Almost feels like this should be April 1st. Hopefully they find their correct home again very soon.

Of all things, theft is such a lazy and stupid crime.

Why in the world are we here?
Surely not to live in pain and fear?

On a positive note Ben - at least he has that new FG 1993 to get him through the tour!!

But it sucks to lose such an iconic and treasured guitar... :( :(
