Birmingham based singer, song-writer Paul Murphy is asking the public to keep an eye out for his beloved guitar which was stolen from a train between Wolverhampton and Birmingham on Saturday evening (3rd November 2012).
Paul, who is well known as the lead singer of The Destroyers and also founder of the Songwriter's Cafe said:
Paul is a greatly loved and admired musician who has made a huge contribution to the city's creative community over more than four decades. His collaborators and 'friends in music' range from Brum rock 'n' roll legend Steve Gibbons to the awesome Simon Fowler of Ocean Colour Scene. His multi talented band The Destroyers have been touring Britain and Europe recently and have received glowing tributes and attention on national radio.
Paul is a veritable troubador and tireless conveyor of good vibes where ever he plays - a lot of his time and energy has been dedicated over many years to supporting up and coming local musicians from every possible background.
Let's do our bit to restore some of those vibes by keeping an eye out for Paul's guitar in pubs, bars, second hand shops, musical instrument stores, cash-for-stuff shops, or being advertised on online retail sites such as e:bay. It is most likely that the guitar will still be in the Black Country or in Birmingham.
If you know who nicked Paul's Larrivee guitar or even just know where it can be collected from, he'd love it back!
