I’ve been a very big fan of the band Machine Head for a very long time, and the band has always been awesome to me, so this really sucks to hear. If you are in the Bay Area in California, we need all the help we can get to try and get Robb back his gear. It’s never cool when this happens to anyone, but hearing that it happened to a guy like Robb who is such a hard worker and one of the best band members I have ever seen interact with fans just makes it worse. The details are below. I hope the police are able to find the people responsible and Robb gets his gear back.
MACHINE HEAD’S ROBB FLYNN OFFERS REWARD FOR HONEST RETURN OF ITEMS STOLEN
DURING HOME INVASION
Guitarist/vocalist Robb Flynn of San Francisco Bay Area group MACHINE HEAD
suffered a severe invasion of personal property yesterday, September 7th, as
thieves broke into his home between 1:15pm and 3:15pm PST. Flynn and his
family were not present during the invasion, and many priceless items were
stolen from his home. These items include the guitar that Flynn recorded
MACHINE HEAD’s first album, Burn My Eyes, with, a gifted guitar from late
PANTERA guitarist Dimebag Darrell (pictured above), and Flynn’s son Zander’s
mini Flying V; a gift he received from his family for Christmas. Other items
stolen include Flynn’s wife’s jewelry, laptops, wakeboards, and cash.
“I am offering a $1,000 reward for the return of the black Ibanez Strat
along with many stickers, a ‘Designated Drinker’ sticker,” announces Flynn.
“Additionally, I am offering a $2,000 reward for the safe return of the blue
Washburn Dimebolt prototype.
“An APB has been put out to every Guitar Center in Northern California and
the police were able to get several fingerprints off of the two acoustics
that the thieves handled, yet bizarrely left behind. Sightings of two
suspicious vehicles have been reported, one a green/teal U.S.-make pickup
truck, the other a white full-size work van.
