Zakk Wylde Robbed
Wylde was performing in Chicago on Friday (March 15th) as part of the all-star lineup of this year's Experience Hendrix Tour and he had his vest and his $10,000 Pelham Blue Bullseye Gibson Les Paul Custom guitar stolen from his tour bus at around 10 PM.
Wylde spoke with The Chicago Tribute about the theft, "I thought somebody might have picked it up and put it in the back lounge (inside the venue) … Nothing gets stolen off tour buses unless you don't lock them. Rule number one: when you get off this (expletive deleted) bus, you lock the (expletive deleted) door and you check the handle." He adds, "Hopefully, these morons are going to go down to the flea market, or the pawn shop."
Wylde has asked fans that may have information about the guitar and vest to send a message to his Twitter account at @ZakkWyldeBLS. See a photo of the guitar and read a description of the suspects that stole the guitar here.
