Stooges Gear Ripped Off


[Mike Watt's missing Gibson EB-3 bass]

Good news and bad news: The rental truck with Iggy and the Stooges' instruments and stage gear, which was stolen after their Monday night show in Montreal, has been found. The bad news: the contents were long gone. Despite this major setback, they'll be playing Wed night in Toronto with borrowed and donated (?) gear.
