Band On the Run

Posted By on Wed, Aug 6, 2008 at 3:40 PM

This just in from our friendly neighbors to the north: Iggy and The Stooges were burglarized this week in Montreal. Unlike Gordon Stone's fiasco in CT last year in which the thieves broke in to his van and made off with a bunch of equipment, these dudes stole the entire fucking truck. Now that's ballsy. Kinda of reminds me of that Dane Cook bit — y'know, when he was actually sort of funny — that every guy's secret ultimate fantasy is being involved in a heist.

Anyway, the chances that the crooks would be silly enough to try and cross the border in a stolen rental truck filled with rock equipment — and possibly driven by a monkey — are pretty slim. Still, being the closest "metropolis" to Montreal, I suppose it's possible they could be holing up in the Queen City. Here's what to keep and eye out for:


all equipment was in a rented penske 15 foot yellow truck
with u.s. (michigan) license plate number AC46493
and the theft had to have happened in the morning,
between 6:30 and 7:30 am

there's a web page at: that will soon have pictures and updates to more stuff found missing
