Robbery Traumatic For Machine Head Star's Family

(Rock News Desk) Machine Head mainman Robb Flynn says his young sons had a hard time dealing with the aftermath of a break-in where over $30,000 worth of items were stolen and never recovered from his family home.

He lost five guitars in the crime, including one given to him by late Pantera icon Dimebag Darrel Abbott and a prototype for his custom instrument line. But he's angriest about a small Epiphone Flying V which he'd bought for his three-year-old boy.

"There's been focus on the guitars but they actually got away with videos, laptops, computers, cash, my wife's jewellery and her grandma's jewellery," Flynn tells Ultimate Guitar. "It was pretty f**ked. The hardest part was when me and my two sons discovered it they were six and three and a half at the time. It was really traumatic for them. Every night before they went to bed they were like, 'Dad, are the robbers going to come in and kill me?' I was like, 'No, I'm not going to let that happen.' more on this story
