Help John 5 find his gear!!

With permission form Rita Lowery via Instagram I am reposting this on behalf of her and John 5.

John 5’s house was robbed and some of his possessions were taken. Being friends with musicians and having a husband who is a  musician I know the bond a person can form with their instruments. It does not matter how famous you are or if you can afford to buy a new instrument. Making music is a form of art and each thing you own to create that art is a piece of who you are.  Shit I wanted to cry the day my glue gun took a shit on me. On top of losing these precious items it must also feel aweful to feel your home and sense of security has been violated. As an artist myself I remember when someone stole my portfolio in art school and how it broke my heart. The person that took it just looked at it as a free leather portfolio, free art board, free drawing pencils and free t square. I am sure they didn’t think that maybe by Dad who was an artist bought the portfolio for me for my birthday (and it was special to me), that I worked my ass off for those little bit of supplies or that the pictures of my deceased mother inside were something I could never get back. Some people are just incredibly selfish.

This is what John 5 posted today about the incident
