E Street Band guitarist Nils Lofgren was the victim of a robbery in Texas last week, losing four guitars and an electric harp in West Oak Cliff. The instruments were taken from a van parked outside a Holiday Inn Express. “I’m am devastated by this robbery,” he tweeted after the robbery. “These are my first shows out after a very difficult year. Please consider a retweet. Alas, the show must go on. @KesslerTheater it won’t be the show I was planning on. However I do plan on taking the roof off.” Lofgren said that he noticed that the instruments missing on Friday morning, when he approached the van to find his three Takamine acoustic guitars, electric Fender Stratocaster, and electric harp all missing from the van. Lofgren’s pleas for assistance did not fall on deaf ears. The musician’s wife later revealed that the instruments had been recovered and provided some details on how that was accomplished. “A Good Samaritan, a police sting, handcuffs, guns drawn,” she posted. “People are under arrest. We never lost hope. Crime doesn’t pay.” Lofgren also thanked everyone for their assistance, writing: “Thank you all. This has been an unbelievable weekend. Looks like my guitars are coming back to me. Thank you to my crew who had to do double time, just so I could walk onstage. Fellow musicians who lovingly offered their own guitars.” Copyright(c) 2018 RTTNews.com. All Rights ReservedLess «
