Someone stole [lastfm]Justin Moore[/lastfm]’s guitar right off the stage during Friday night’s concert in Royal Oak. But now it’s on its way back to Justin!Here’s what Justin tweeted after Friday night’s show:
“Great show in Mi tonight. But somebody stole my guitar off stage. Please own up. It means more to me than you know. Dont be a [jerk]. Do right”
Well, the guy who took it heard about this post on WYCD.com and arranged to return it to me. Man, it felt like a scene out of a movie as I met one of the guy’s friends in a pre-arranged location Sunday to get the guitar back. Texted photos of it to Justin who called to thank the guy. And I want to thank the guy who took it for owning up and doing the right thing. Here’s an excerpt from the apology letter stuck in the case:
“Look, man, I (messed) up major, man. It was a drunken mistake. I love your music so much!! God will get me for what I have done. Well, hope to see you in MI soon. But I would like to deeply and sincerely apologize for what I’ve done. Like your wonderful song, “How I Got To Be This Way,” we all make mistakes. … I’m going out and buying 50 of yo9ur CDs today. I hope and pray you have a wonderful long career. … I’m sure you got some yelling and punching of me to do.”
I love a story with a happy ending. But I told Justin, “Next concert, leave the good guitar at home and play a rental.” Which it appears he’s doing in this photo.
