I'm re-posting this from the Bass Player Mag facebook feed. I searched to see if it had been posted here yet; mods feel free to delete if it's already up, but I could not find it. I've always loved seeing this bass in photos. What a drag! Hello Friends, My name is Geoffrey Lyall although i'm better known as Klaus Flouride of the band Dead Kennedys. Please read what I hope is an understandable translation in Portugese below. In April we played 4 shows in Brazil. We played in Curitaba, Americana, a festival in Recife, and Sao Paulo. We loved playing for the fans there. Brazilian fans are the among the best in the world. During our stay there we used exclusively TAM Airlines. Unfortunately they handled our luggage in a very unfortunate way, causing us to have to use borrowed equipment from the band Fang (who we were traveling with) and the other bands in the some of the venues. This is becaus TAM lost our guitars and luggage continually. We had one night with our own guitars. And then it happened. They Lost both East Bay Ray's guitars and my bass that I've had for 40 years and played nearly every Dead Kennedy's show with since 1978. They now seem to be "lost" for good or somehow stolen from TAM's baggage system. Here are pictures of my bass and I'll soon have pictures of East Bay Ray's double guitar case and guitars on later posts. If anyone reading this can give us any help please write or message us at: https://www.facebook.com/deadkennedys https://www.facebook.com/klausflouride http://www.klausflouride.com/ We will Check everyday. There will be a reward offerd, no questions asked, for the return of any of these instruments. Thank you all for you good wishes and help. Klaus Flouride for Dead Kennedys.
