A LOUSY WAY TO END 2009

Just wanted to share this message from Hash Brown, who had equipment stolen from his van IN HIS OWN BACK YARD on 12/30.

He's taking the zen approach about it - "...happy to be in a new year and a new decade and looking forward to it." , but this kind of stuff really pisses me off. It's not like any of us are getting rich playing the blues. Hell, thanks to the lousy economy and cutbacks in gigs, it's damn near becoming a labor of love - for the love only. Some gutless moron stealing the tools of your trade is high on the scale of evil for me.

Anyway, in case you're out looking for gear and happen across any of his stuff, here's his message:

I say we find the perpetrators and beat them senseless with the warped necks from cheap Strat rip-offs. But hey, that's just me.
