7 Bands Robbed Blind of All Their Gear
One minute, a band is loading gear into their van after a kick-ass show, the next, they're waking up to the sobering realization that some a-holes have swiped the trailer holding every guitar, amp, keyboard and drumstick they'd depended on for sustenance. Thefts of band gear don't happen every day, but they're more common than many people realize, and over the last several years, dozens of indie and alt-rock bands have seen their equipment looted. Musicians rarely recover their stolen instruments, and for groups struggling to earn livelihoods on the road, such crimes can be real nightmares. Hence, it's with great sympathy that we compile this list of Seven Bands Robbed Blind of All Their Gear.
