Sad to report that the Stooges had most of their stage gear ripped off early this morning outside the Embassy Suites Hotel in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. All the equipment was in a rented 15-foot yellow Penske truck with the U.S. (Michigan) license plate number of AC46493.

The band has set up a Website, listing the stolen equipment (there's A LOT listed there), so if anybody has any info whatsoever on the theft, please go here.

Either that or contact Eric Fischer at:

Iggy wants his amplifiers back, bitch!
