Spotted this on the Guthrie forum last night, Dave Kilminster had posted the following on his Facebook page:
please keep a look out for two Brunetti heads (serial numbers 105 and 106) and two Brunetti cabinets that someone may be trying to sale on cheaply… possibly in Brunetti flight cases… Our van was broken into in Rome yesterday afternoon, and roughly £20,000 of amps, leads, guitar pedals and drum parts were stolen… including Seth’s favourite bass, that he’s had for twenty years!!! Fortunately ‘Rose’ was with me, and Guthrie still has his signature Suhr guitar..
Further to this Guthrie Govan has posted the following detailed info on the equipment stolen:

Awesome news from the guys at jamtrackcentral:
We have a busy December coming up, that’s for sure. Not only do we have brand new packages coming from existing JTC artists Denny Ilett, Jonas Tamas, Vinai Trinateepakdee and Hedras Ramos but we have some amazing new artists putting together packages too. We are extremely proud to have Tom Quayle, Martin Miller and Chris Eaton joining the JTC roster and they are busy creating amazing new jam tracks as you read this.
Both Tom and Martin have a huge fan base already and are both exciting and extremely talented composers and players. We have heard sneak previews of their tracks and they are going to be amazing! Chris is a phenomenal slide guitarist and will be venturing into brand new territory with JTC’s first ever Slide Guitar Jam Package.
We are sure these guys will get a fantastic reception from the JTC community. Let’s just hope Adrian can get through all of the transcribing!
Here’s a taster of what the amazing Tom and Martin will offer:
Uploading the latest MasterThatRiff! video last night I noticed that the mastertheguitar youtube channel has now surpassed 4 million upload views!
After reaching this milestone I thought it would be a good time to have a look at the numbers, see what the top 10 most popular videos are:
01 – MasterThatRiff 10! – Ozzy Osbourne “Crazy Train”
02 – MasterThatRiff 23! – Bon Jovi “Wanted Dead Or Alive”
03 – MasterThatRiff 1! – AC/DC “Back In Black”
04 – MasterThatRiff 2! – Rage Against The Machine “Killing In The Name”
05 – MasterThat Riff 5! – Iron Maiden “The Trooper”
06 – MasterThatRiff 4! – Lenny Kravitz “Always On The Run”
07 – MasterThatRiff 24! – Metallica “Sad But True”
08 – MasterThatRiff 26! – Guns N’ Roses “Mr. Brownstone”
09 – MasterThatRiff 31! – Metallica “Master Of Puppets”
10 – MasterThatRiff 9! – Pantera “Walk”
No surprises that some of the oldest videos will have the most views. I’m glad to see that the quality have improved over time too, some of those old videos make me cringe a little
Ozzy’s ‘Crazy Train’ comes out top with a whopping 212,563 views! A classic riff for sure but I wonder if a few views are because of my old Ibanez GMC Jem
As with all things guitar the stats show that the majority of viewers are males and interestingly between the ages of 45-55. Maybe people returning to playing after some years break due to work/family.
The US and UK comes top for popularity which is to be expected for global internet traffic use, but it’s interesting to see how the others shape up.
There’s been a couple of huge viewing spikes over the years, one being the New Year video I made in 2007 which had over 6484 views on New Year’s Eve 2007 then another spike on New Year’s Eve 2008 with 3409 views!
As I’ve mentioned before, initially I wanted to do short videos showing riffs as some promo for my teaching business here in Edinburgh, but also as a way to get used to speaking on camera (still not 100% comfortable with that ) and the whole production process with the long term aim to offering pre-recorded online lessons.
Since launching on January 14th 2007 the channel currently has 113 videos uploaded and 11817 subscribers. It’s grown beyond anything I could had ever hoped for and has helped me reach a point where I am happy enough with quality to forge ahead with pre-recorded video lessons.
So once again I would like to say a huge thankyou to everyone out there who has watched any of these videos over the years here’s to a lot more
