Heartbreaker: Tom Petty's Guitars Stolen in Front of JazzFest Date
When Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers touch down at the Fair Grounds in a couple weeks, their sound may be lacking some its usual vintage. A Culver City, Calif., burglar jacked five of the famed band's 1960s guitars last week, including Petty's famous, jangling Rickenbacker (circa 1967).
The guitars (see them here) were stolen from the soundstage where the band was rehearsing for the tour that is about to start. With the tour not quite begun, Petty is hoping the thief will have a Change of Heart.
The band is offering a $7,500 reward for the return of the guitars. Meanwhile, JazzFest continues to stretch its bench, with the guitars added to a disabled list that includes Eddie Vedder's arm, John Mayer's throat and a mystery Jill Scott predicament. At least we still get Petty and the Heartbreakers in the flesh.
