Hey, a friend of mine, of the Matt Truman Ego Trip and the Dumb Easies, an amazing Northwest Ohio musician, was robbed of all of his gear, instruments, and his life’s work last night. Pleas help me hunt these bastards down. This is his description of everything stolen. I have included photos for reference. If you see any of this stuff pop up for sale in pawn shops or on Craigslist, report it to the authorities immediately. More helpful if you live in Detroit, Cleveland, Columbus, Toledo, Ann Arbor, Monroe, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, etc. PLEASE REBLOG THIS TO ALL OF YOUR FOLLOWERS. The more people who see this, the more likely he is to see his stuff back again.
”So here’s a list & some pictures of everything that was stolen from my house last night.
I keep feeling like I’m going to throw up. I just spent the entire weekend mixing songs for my band that we planned to release at the end of October & now all the drives & the computer are gone. Not to mention thousands of dollars worth of other stuff. Most of these pics are just “stock pics” from the internet. And I didn’t post a pic of hard-drives, computer, computer monitors but yeah, they’re gone too
I’m not holding my breath that I’ll see anything again.
The hard drives had at least 7 years of recordings on them. I dont even know how much I’ve lost. I’m pretty much destroyed right now.
