Dallas police are looking for the person who stole several guitars from Nils Lofgren, the longtime guitarist with Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band. Investigators say somebody broke into Lofgren’s van, which had been parked outside a Holiday Inn, between Thursday afternoon and Friday morning.
Four guitars and a harp which Lofgren was set to use during a concert Friday night in Dallas were stolen.
“I played it for so many years and it’s travelled the world, so I’m wearing a hole in it. I don’t have quite the hole through it, but it’s about to break. So that was a dear guitar for me,” he told CBS DFW.
Lofgren said he would go forward with his concert and planned on “taking the roof off.” He was able to rent or borrow equipment for the show.
Police say detectives have been assigned to investigate and are working to gather any video evidence related to the case. Lofgren told CBS DFW a thief was caught on surveillance cameras breaking into his van overnight, as it sat parked across from the lobby of a Holiday Inn Express on 4300 block of Communications Drive in Dallas.
