It seems that musicians getting ripped off on the road is sadly becoming more and more a reality. The latest in the growing trend is LA noise makers Gliss. The band’s van was broken into while they slept in a Jersey motel inbetween gigs.
Among the items stolen was a 1979 Fender Precision bass that frontman Martin Klingman received from his grandfather as a child. While the band is disheartened about the theft, they are hopeful that they will be reunited with their gear. “It’s always a cryin’ shame when you walk up to your van or car and find out that some lost, sad person has broken in and taken the sweetness from your life,” exclaimed Klingman. “My grandfather gave me a 1970’s Fender P-Bass years ago when I was a wee lad. I don’t care about the money… the sentimental value of the bass that was stolen last night will never be replaced.”
