Arrests made in the stealing of Willie Adler's (Lamb of God) guitar and other instruments

Arrests made in the stealing of Willie Adlers’s (Lamb of God) guitar and others instruments

While scanning through the net came across the feed that Lamb of God’s guitarist Willie Adler posting to please watch out for his guitar that was stolen after a show in Phoenix from the bands trailer. “His Warbird.”  We instantly jumped on board to post and try to do our research if it was up for sale anywhere. We and a few others found a link and sent him over the description/link of the guitar that was stated to be Lamb of God’s guitar. It was being sold for a mere $300. (link)

“ATTENTION ALL…and particularly in the Phoenix area,” writes Adler. “My main beloved Warbird, along with @jayceerva one of kind hand painted bass; were stolen early Thursday morning (May 2) from @akchin.pavilion in Phoenix. The pieces of shit that did this are suspected to be employed by @akchin.pavilion, local hands that were working Wednesday, our tour production day. Apparently, they waited around for all to leave, and made their way into the back of our semi to commit this felony. AGAIN..under the watch of @akchin.pavilion and their security. Karma is a fuckin bitch..”.

“The venue is cooperating fully with local law enforcement. We cannot comment further as this is an ongoing investigation,” the company said.

The guitar is mostly black with the gold skeleton of a bird in homage to their 2004 album, “Ashes of the Wake.” There are also Roman numerals that add up to 1976. (see picture above)

Thousands came to the help to try and keep an eye out for this beloved instrument. As of today it was not recovered, but an arrest of three individuals where made. These characters posted online, tried to sell guitars at a pawn shop, only to eventually be busted.

William Widener, Michael Blakeslee and Justin Petersen were arrested.

Keep your eyes open for the instruments. As these are prized items for the band.

Contest time – Friends of the show talking with Michael and Lisa Sweet, “who’s bottle was Michael Strong sharing at toting around?”  (you would know this answer by listening to the interview that we had with them at the venue)

Established in southern California in 1983, multi-platinum crossover Christian metal band, Stryper, continues to share their positive message and energetic stage presence with a passionate following throughout the world. Since the band’s inception over 30 years ago, the founding members have stayed true to their deepest convictions, turning from “the ways of the world” and following their hearts instead.

“In the past 34 years, we’ve evolved into what we are now,” says vocalist and guitarist Michael Sweet. “This is what we always really wanted to be. I love the progression. The story of Stryper is that of an underdog. We seem to go against the grain with everything we do, and our fans tend to be the same – They’re good hardworking people who believe in love, respect, and not conforming to the ways of the world.”

The members of Stryper have proven themselves as metal stalwarts, leaving an indelible mark on the genre with each new release. With such hits as “Calling On You,” “Free,” “Honestly,” and “Always There For You,” Stryper’s album sales now exceed over 10 million worldwide. Add to that one of the most successful Christian rock albums ever, 1986’s multi-platinum To Hell With The Devil, and the unique distinction of being the first band in history to notch two songs in MTV’s Top 10 with “Free” and “Honestly.”

The band has managed to leave an enduring impression on pop culture, as well. Singer Michael Sweet spent months trending online when he was identified as the doppelganger of 2016 presidential candidate Ted Cruz, who
went on to discuss the comparison on an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! Several movies have paid homage to Stryper’s cultural significance, too, including Drew Barrymore’s “Whip It” and “Pain & Gain,” starring Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

Since returning from a 12-year hiatus in 2003, Stryper has managed to release new music annually. Their most recent full-length album, Fallen [Frontiers Music SRL], reached #44 on the Billboard Top 200 and #2 on the Top Hard Music Albums chart. The group is now recording their next original album, which is due in April of 2018 and promises to be their most groundbreaking yet.

This year will also bring Stryper back on the road, where they’ll have a chance to connect with fans, new and old. The line-up still features three of the original members, including singer songwriter Michael Sweet, his brother and drummer Robert Sweet, and guitarist Oz Fox. Recently, the group welcomed iconic bassist Perry Richardson (formerly of Firehouse), who will be joining them on tour.

“We’re excited about the next season of Stryper,” says Sweet. “We have the best fans in the world and the band is at the top of its game musically and spiritually. We look forward to seeing everyone on the road.”
