Grant Gelt published a note.
Back in January of 2010 we reported that there was a break in at one of BRMC’s storage lockers and all of Michel Been’s vintage guitars and keep-sakes were stolen. We are thrilled to report that over a year later, almost all the stolen items have been recovered!
A fan of BRMC and The Call noticed one of the guitars for sale on eBay that turned out to be Michael’s signature Ampeg Fretless Bass and through that information and with the aid of the LAPD and some other helpful sources, all the stolen instruments have been returned and the prime suspect apprehended.
The band would like to thank everyone out there that helped scour the internet and spread the word of this theft and are so appreciative that these items have made it home.
If it hadn’t been for all of you, these instruments would’ve probably been lost forever.
