Maria Taylor checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@mariataylor) on Wednesday (July 16) with an update on the equipment that had been stolen from her van last week in San Francisco. The Saddle Creek artist writes:
I just want to say “thank you.. so very much” to everyone who has shown us support this past week. Yes, there might be a few shi**y people out there who could do something like… break into a van and take everything… but I was reminded by all of your sweet emails and efforts to help us retrieve our gear, that most people are amazing.
With the help of your leads mixed with the help of the coolest investigator from the San Fran police dept ever, we have found my TENNESSEE ROSE GRETSCH and Taylor’s 1976 LES PAUL!!!
My Martin acoustic was on Craigslist, but now they have taken it off. I think we can get it back too!!!
I truly can’t thank you enough. These stupid thieves had no idea they were dealing with an army of “us.” Despite the less than desirable ending, we had so much fun on this tour. Thanks to everyone who came out!! We have some video footage from the road that we will edit down and share soon….
