Yesterday, it was reported that DevilDriver guitarist Jeff Kendrick’s red ESP Horizon guitar had been stolen during the band’s show in Joliet, IL Monday night (March 26). Well it would appear that a CCTV photo of the robber and a lot of online support helped, as Kendrick’s guitar has been returned.
Kendrick offered the following update via his Facebook profile:
“My guitar has been returned to a police station several towns away from Joliet, Illinois. Thank you for all the help and wonderful thoughts! Never underestimate the power of influence! It was amazing to see how many people rallied behind me to help!”
DevilDriver frontman Dez Fafara added the following via Twitter:
“Rally round the family !!!! With a pocket full of Tweets! Twitter caught a crook! He wrote a I’m sorry note! #YourStillGonnaGetArrestedCUZ”
We’re very happy to hear that the robber was caught and that Kendrick’s guitar has been returned. Now that they found the guitar, maybe DevilDriver can shift their focus on finding a new label home.
