Metal Musician's Stolen Jacket Turns Up In Macy's Display

(TeamRock Radio) A Portland metalhead's long-lost jacket has mysteriously appeared in a Ralph Lauren display in Macy's flagship store in New York. The vest, given to Mangled Corpse and Maniak bassist Meshach Babcock by a childhood friend, was customised with band patches and his own handwriting.

But the one-of-a-kind jacket was stolen from the backstage area while his group played at a Battle Of The Bands show in Oregon City High School three years ago.

Babcock had given up hope of finding it, until last week, when his friend saw that Nasty Savage had shared a photo of a sleeveless denim jacket with their patch stitched on it in a glass case in Macy's.

He tells Katu News: "I got a message from my friend Sergio saying, 'Meshach, I think I've found your vest.' I looked at the picture and there's no question - it's my vest, all the patches are completely the same." Read more and see a photo of the vest here.
