    When are these bands going to wake up? Seriously, who the hell leaves $70K worth of gear in a van in a parking lot of a 3 star hotel?

    Not good.

    I guess the thief Ran (So Far Away). There's probably a bad pun about Score-ing Mikes (and other equipment) in there somewhere too.

    Was the stolen van parked in a handicap spot? Tsk, tsk.
