My friend and frequent bandmate as of the past year was the victim of a MASSIVE theft of an EN-F*@#$!?-TIRE drumset. Anyone who has played with him knows how good of a drummer and, more importantly, how good of a guy he is. Nothing like this should happen to anyone but I wanted to make this happen for him because he makes his living like I do doing what he loves. This not only affects his livelihood, but any musician knows how soul crushing it is to lose their musical equipment, much less have it stolen. They are not mere worldly possessions. They are the things we use to create our meaning and give happiness to those who watch us play.
He gave a very detailed description of everything he lost and, after counting the costs, I came to this number which I feel is an accurate accounting minus wear and tear.
For those of you that have had the pleasure of knowing or playing with him, I'm sure you can agree that this crappy thing couldn't have happened to a better guy.
If 180 people can contribute just $25, we can make this tragedy disappear. With the network he has established and the nothing but postive remarks I've heard about him, I think we can make this happen.
Let's change this guy's life! Just look at that FACE <3 omg. ;-D
