Music Sumo Hoodie

Get your own Music Sumo hoodie today!

It was brought to my attention a few months ago that the link to the Music Sumo Goods was not working anymore. Checking with the producer of my merch I was informed that they had switched business models, shut down all clients’ stores, tossed out all of the artwork, and basically started over without informing anyone. Since it was around 2005 that I created all my old merch I had lost my artwork several hard drive crashes ago. After scrounging for what old artwork I could find, I created some new merch and opened a new store. So, enjoy the new line of Music Sumo Goods from Spreadshirt. I plan on putting together more designs, etc. in the future, but I hope that this will get the Sumo out on people’s backs for the time being. If a hoodie isn’t for you right now there is a lot more offered. I even have Music Sumo masks. Double up if you need to.

As most of you may have already seen on the Music Sumo Facebook Page, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ guitars were reported stolen from Culver Studios in Southern California on Thursday April 12th while at rehearsals for their up coming tour. The guitars were Petty’s blond 1967 maple 12-string Rickenbacker and his Gibson SGTVJunior, Mike Campbell‘s blue Dusenberg, Ron Blair‘s Fender Broadcaster, and Scott Thurston‘s 1967 Epiphone Sheridan. Collectively, the guitars were said to be worth around $100,000. On their website, the band offered a “no questions asked” $7,500 reward for information leading to the return of the instruments.

Police Chief Don Pedersen said a break in the case came when a 51 year old security guard from the Culver Studios named, Daryl Emmette Washington, pawned one of the guitars at a Hollywood pawn shop for only $250. While I am sure that Tom Petty and the boys are glad to get their instruments back, a message seeking comment from the band’s publicist, Jim Merlis, was not immediately returned.

Have a good tour, guys!
