Zakk Wylde’s guitar has been stolen– it’s the distinctive black-and-white bull’s eye guitar that’s his signature instrument.
Wylde played a set as part of the Experience Hendrix tour in Chicago Friday and put the guitar on his bus, then went back inside to watch the rest of the show. His leather vest and his guitar were gone when he got back.
Surveillance footage shows three men entering the bus after Wylde’s tour manager forgot to lock the door.
Wylde says his tour manager feels “beyond horrendous beyond embarrassed.”
The guitar is one of two with the bull’s eye paint job and Wylde estimates it’s worth $10,000.

She had been dating Mick Jagger since 2001.
According to police, L’Wren Scott’s body was found by her assistant, hanging from a scarf on a doorknob. Preliminary reports suggested a suicide and foul play wasn’t suspected. A medical examiner will determine a cause of death.

L’Wren was known for dressing celebrities like Angelina Jolie, Michelle Obama, Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, and Sarah Jessica Parker.
She started her career as a model, working with designers like Chanel and Thierry Mugler, among others. She then started working as a stylist, collaborating with Liz Taylor and Karl Lagerfeld. She launched her first collection, Little Black Dress, in 2006.
Last month, Scott canceled her London Fashion Week show after production delays. Her last red carpet appearance was at the British Fashion Awards 2013 in December.
As for Mick Jagger, he is currently on tour with the Rolling Stones in Australia. A spokesperson said he is “completely shocked and devastated.”

This looks amazing:
A comedian with a New York City taxi license pranked customers by surprising them with a python.
The comedian would pick up his victims, throw a python in the backseat and then get footage of them flipping out on camera.
He calls his two-minute short film, ‘Snakes in a Cab’ after the cult film ‘Snakes On a Plane,’ and passengers can be seen cursing and yelling on camera.
The comedian may be getting his license revoked over the prank, but he insists that he’s just “trying to promote a book and have fun.”

Yes, there was blood.
