Gliss Wants Its Stuff Back

Rockers’ band vandalized; items
stolen

Come on;
give the musicians a break.

 

Everybody
knows that life is rough enough on the road without walking out and seeing your
ride was vandalized and gear stolen. Or worse. Remember we told you The Deers’
tour bus was stolen? Check
out the details here.

 

Now we
have Gliss that had finished a gig in Philly and settled in for some rest at a
Newark, N.J. hotel. Little did they know some creep was outside vandalizing the
van and helping themselves to goodies inside.

 

Among the
items stolen was a 1979 Fender Precision bass that frontman Martin Klingman
received from his grandfather as a child. The band, currently in the midst of
their “Stimulus Package Tour,” are keeping the show on the road and
not cancelling dates. Still, this hurts.

 

“It’s
always a cryin’ shame when you walk up to your van or car and find out that
some lost, sad person has broken in and taken the sweetness from your
life,” said Klingman. “My grandfather gave me a 1970’s Fender P-Bass
years ago when I was a wee lad. I don’t care about the money… the sentimental
value of the bass that was stolen last night will never be replaced.”

 

This
blows. Seriously.

 

Help
these guys out. If you have information contact the band at glissgear-gmail.com

The Bass
serial # is either S899012 or S899013.
