Drive A Victims Of Strange Bus Break-In While In Chicago On Rock Allegiance Tour with Papa Roach and P.O.D.

Our sources have informed us that Los Angeles’ Drive A were the victims of a bizarre bus break-in earlier this week in downtown Chicago, while on a break from their run on the Rock Allegiance Tour with Buckcherry, Papa Roach, Puddle of Mud, P.O.D., Red and Crossfade.

 

This past Tuesday night, as band members and crew slept on their bus while parked in an underground garage located in an area frequented by transients, an unidentified person entered the vehicle and made off with money, food, booze, clothing and an iPod, while leaving their gear untouched.

 

The band is taking it in stride, as front Bruno Mascolo explains, “I guess to make it in music these days you have to fully commit yourself, even if it means your home away from home being raided by homeless people on occasion. That being said, the next homeless person that asks us for change, we will be checking his pocket for our ipod. I’m just glad everyone is okay.”

Thrice has gear stolen

Having something stolen is probably one of the worst feelings in the world due to the invasion of privacy. But for a band to loose gear, the feeling is worse. Not only do you feel violated, you don’t have the equipment that you pour many hours over that essentially becomes another part of you. Plus your gear is your lifeblood to your living, which is making music for people. But when those same people turn on you to snag a piece for themselves, it leaves the band in a bad spot.

Just last night, the band Thrice had this very thing happen to them when they were on tour. And now they are asking for your help for any leads on their missing gear. So below you will find a link  along with descriptions of the said items and pictures. If you know anything, please contact:  koleary05@gmail.com
