Re: gear stolen in Las Vegas
Very sad. The Mermen are a fantastic band as well as being nice folks,
and this breaks my heart. There are folks that target touring
bands specifically and follow them around waiting for their chance (the
Pixies and Sonic Youth, for example, have had their ALL their
gear stolen in the past while on tour). When I go on the road, I'm always
the hardcase who demand hat ALL the gear be loaded into
where we are sleeping. Lot's of grumbling, but I've still got most of my
gear. I've also slept in the van/station wagon with the gear when
necessary. You simply can't chance it. Gear grows legs and walks away
