Every huge rock stars have their gear stolen from time to time, but that doesn’t make it any more fun.
A guitar belonging to Slipknot‘s Jim Root was stolen from the band’s jam room near the Memorial Coliseum in Portland, Oregon while the band was performing. The guitar in question is a custom satin silver Fender that Root described as having “a patina copper pick guard.” Root posted the following on Instagram:
Root’s girlfriend, Cristina Scabbia of Lacuna Coil chimed in, adding:
“If you’re a real fan, I can understand you want to have something that belongs to your idol… But that’s the wrong way to do it and it is depriving another person of something that might means memories and something more than an ‘item!'”
She continued: “If whoever got this guitar is reading this, PLEASE take it back or send me a private message! We can all do something stupid and taking it back is what can bring a lot of honor back to you. From zero to hero! Think about it and be a man.”
