Robb Flynn Robbed, Offering Reward for Stolen Guitars
There are very few feelings that can compare to the realization that your house has been robbed — it’s violating, and any sense of security becomes a ghost. Machine Head‘s Robb Flynn came home after picking up his son from school on Sept. 7 to find his home, located California’s Artinez/Virginia Hills area, had been broken into. Many priceless items were gone.
“Items include my wife’s jewelry, laptops, wakeboards, cash and most importantly four of my guitars, including the guitar that I recorded [Machine Head’s] first album, ‘Burn My Eyes,’ with,” the guitarist/vocalist detailed on the band’s website. “Also stolen was a guitar that is priceless to me that was a gift from [late Pantera guitarist] Dimebag Darrell. The c—suckers even stole my son Zander’s mini Flying V I got him for Christmas.”
Flynn continued, “I am offering a $1,000 reward for the return of the black Ibanez Strat along with many stickers, a ‘Designated Drinker’ sticker. Additionally I am also offering a $2,000 reward for the safe return of the blue Washburn Dimebolt prototype.”
APBs have been put out at every Guitar Center in the surrounding area, and according to Flynn the police were able to get fingerprints off of handled but not taken acoustic guitars. Reports have already been filed on two suspicious vehicles in the neighborhood at the time, one a green/teal U.S. make pickup truck, the other a white pull-side work van.
Flynn is asking for anyone who hears or sees anything (Craigslist and eBay will be places to keep watch on) to contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let’s hope some justice and guitar recovery is in Flynn’s near future.
