    A heavy metal rocker’s $10,000 guitar was stolen from his tour bus Friday night outside the Chicago Theatre, officials said.
    Rocker Zakk Wylde, former guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne and founder of the heavy metal band Black Label Society, was performing at the theater as part of the Experience Hendrix Tour, which featured famous musicians like Buddy Guy and Johnny Lang

    Wylde, 47, told police that he returned to his tour bus following his performance at the venue and discovered his guitar and leather jacket were missing, according to Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Jose Estrada.

    Wylde valued the guitar, a custom-made Pelham Blue Les Paul with his signature bulls-eye pattern on it, at around $10,000 and told the Tribune that surveillance footage from the Chicago Theatre showed three men entering the bus just after 10 p.m. after his tour manager forgot to lock the bus door while stocking it with food and ice.

    Wylde took to Twitter and Instagram following the theft in hopes that the guitar might be returned.

    I think his guitars are made from a special wood that turns every note into an artificial harmonic ;)

    sucks to to be robbed....although pretty sure henry j. will just send him a new one.
