Richie Hawtin (Plastikman) reports that his gear got ripped off from Friday in France:
To all my French fans, friends and supporters. I need your help!
On Friday night someone broke into my hotel room at Hotel Costes in Paris and stole my iPod and 2 x Plastikman Live iPads (serial #GB01723UZ38 and #GB0129CAZ3A) and my Plastikman Live show Apple Macbook Pro 17″ laptop (serial #C02CK0GXDC7C).
I am asking everyone to keep their ears and eyes open for any information about these very important and personal items. I’m offering a 2500 € reward for any information that leads to the return of the equipment.
Please email me at [email protected]. If found/returned I will NOT prosecute any one involved as I would just like to have my equipment returned.
Thank you, Rich.
What do you think? Is corporal punishment too harsh for people that rip off musicians?
