A Sorta Happy Ending for Sonic Youth

Posted by - 09:36 AM on 09/27/12
In 1999, Sonic Youth's tour bus was stolen, and the band lost all of their gear, much of it highly modified and irreplaceable. This week, however, two of the guitars that were stolen have shown up and been returned to the band.

That's so strange that 13 years later. (there's still hope for some of Thrice's gear!)

if life were anything like a movie, the returning of these pieces will make Kim and Thurston remember the good times and get back together.

Yes please. I gotta see this band live at some point, I really hope this isn't going to turn into an eternal hiatus.

Wow, that's great. Good to see this kind of thing happen every now and then, even if it is 13 years later. Some of those pedals had to have been hard as shit to replace, though.

That's got to be the biggest list of stolen musical items I've ever seen. I wonder how much all of this comes to. I wouldn't be surprised if it cost more than $100,000.

Yeah, I definitely see nothing about two guitars being returned this year. I'm assuming nobody posted a piece of news which is seven years old, and that the link was just posted wrong.

This should've been the second link posted. Not sure if it's my bad or Jason's.
