    The Coupe De Villes have been together for just about 30 years now. Everything but their guitars and basses were locked up in it. Here's the story...

    http://www.whec.com/news/stories/S2861984.shtml?cat=566

    Tommy bought the 2nd guitar I ever built and is one of the genuinely nicest guys you will ever meet... Breaks my heart... Of course, I offered the use of my PA gear, guitar amp, mics, etc... Look on the bottom of the story to view the band's website to see if anything is listed there... A couple of custom Nau Engineering amps would be the obvious standouts in case the amps show up on Craig's List or eBAY or pawn shops... The D.A. is investigating the case and the band is very well loved for all of their charity work in the region, so the perps ought to be quaking in their shoes at this point although it appeared to be a targeted theft since 3 other trailers with motorcycles in them (one right next to the band's was even unlocked) were untouched. Bastards!!

    I hope they catch the scum bags, preferably with a bullet.

    Man, I hate to hear that. I hate thieves. I hope they had insurance to soften the blow.

    That is absolutely disgusting to steal a mans work tools. I just hope the knuckle dragging neanderthals get caught and punished severly.. Just a suggestion, how about asking the local bikie gang for a little help. Many people run these guys down, but they're basically good guys who like to help in situations like these. I lost a guitar one night at a gig just as I was packing up and there were around a dozen bikies in there and they all took of on their bikes and were back with my guitar 20 minutes later. I thanked them and offered them all a beer but when I asked who was the culprit they just said "You really wouldn't want to know mate, but he wont be stealing anything for a long while, least wise till his bones get repaired".. They've had my admiration ever since....:mrgreen:

    Woh, I like that band. Heard them play at Dinosaur BBQ. They were tight and had the place rockin'! Sad day, that's personal right there. Hope for the best and the return of their stuff.

    living in the Rochester area, I've certainly heard of these guys, though I've never seen them. Stories like this are very disheartening.

    Very sorry to hear. This is terrible. Positive vibes to get your equipment back. May the perps receive only the best in accommodations for their new orange suits with butt flap access. Shooting them is too good for 'em.
    Long, slow fear and torture, that's where its at.
