Nothing says “bummer” quite like a mucisian getting his gear stolen. In this instance, the victim is John 5, whose LA residence was robbed yesterday, March 26th. Judging by the picture posted onto John 5’s Facebook, the items that were stolen include several guitars and apparently a painting of the Creature From the Black Lagoon. That last one seems like an odd thing to steal next to a few guitars, but it sucks nonetheless.
John 5’s also posted the following account on his Facebook:
Unfortunately our house was robbed today, we accidentally didn’t put the alarm on, so some assholes got lucky! We will post more pictures of more guitars, these are all the pictures we have now. I just want to put it out there, just in case anyone comes across these items.. Whoever did this will get caught hopefully one day!
Unfortunately, lost or stolen gear has a habit of not turning up again, but if you’re in the LA area then we recommend you dress up as the Gill-man in hopes of running into the theives and attempting to scare the shit out them in hopes of at least getting the painting back. Then work your way from there.
