Machine Head’s kind of kept a semi-low profile lately. Last year, they released a standalone single, “Is There Anybody Out There,” that seemed like a concerted effort to get active rock radio airplay, or at least a lot of satellite radio airplay on SiriusXM.

Six years later, Machine Head’s Robb Flynn gets stolen guitars back

Posted by on May 26, 2016

Whenever you hear about gear getting stolen from a band or artist, there’s usually a bad ending. Or actually no ending at all, as the majority of gear isn’t recovered. That’s probably what Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn assumed when his house in Martinez, CA was robbed back in 2010.  Four guitars were taken, including a […]
