Two days after it was stolen, Canadian police have found the van that was loaded with Iggy and the Stooges' equipment. The bad news? The instruments and most of the equipment were gone. Canada's CBC News reported that Montreal police recovered the abandoned truck Tuesday afternoon several blocks from where it had been stolen.
The good news is that most of the equipment had serial numbers on it, so it will be difficult to re-sell. And while bassist Mike Watt is still upset that his 40-plus-year-old signature Gibson bass was among the items missing from the truck, he said his four string went out in a blaze of glory. "Her last gig was smoking," he said of the instrument. "Ig was going off and the Montreal people were pumped up."
