It sure wasn't no pickpocket...

The word on Facebook is that John Pope had his double bass stolen but that the instrument and its owner have been re-united. What's the lowdown on this dastardly deed John?

Whilst rehearsing with one of my (electric) bands at our room in the ouseburn on sunday night a very 'confused' (tired and emotional, I'll bet) gentleman used a lump of breeze-block to smash the rear windshield of my car. He then made off with the doghouse herself. Fortunately a young woman who was passing saw the break-in occur and phoned the police, whilst rushing into our room to alert us (mid rock-tastic riff). The culprit was caught, but not before 'stashing' my bass. 'Stashed' it right over some bushes, into a deep ditch. It was recovered by the police on monday morning and returned to me, post-forensic, on tuesday. The prognosis is not good...

Cheers,
JP
