Rumblers Get Unlucky
Philadelphia rockers Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers, who recently played the Paradise, had their equipment truck stolen later that night from their hotel. The truck was recovered, but the instruments were gone, including Conwell's one-of-a-kind Guild guitar with signatures from Stevie Ray Vaughan, Chrissie Hynde, John Lee Hooker and others.
