PORTAGE, Ind. – Former Poison singer Bret Michaels has asked fans to help him find his custom-made guitar, which was apparently stolen at the end of a concert last week.
Michaels’ red-and-white Holden six-string electric guitar with a picture of a skull wearing a top hat on the front was taken as he played a concert Nov. 12 at McCool’s bar along U.S. 6 about 15 miles east of Gary.
A photo of Michaels with the guitar was posted on his Web site, www.bretmichaels.com.
“This guitar has a lot of sentimental value to Bret and we just want to get it back,” said a message on the Web site.
The message said the guitar was taken during the last song of Michaels’ concert.
The Porter County Crime Stoppers program was offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information about the theft.
Poison was best known for its 1980s hits, “Look What The Cat Dragged In,” “Fallen Angel” and “Talk Dirty To Me.”
