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 
(experience talking).
