yo this shit is hilarious. No one knows what really happened except the band and the driver. Flo posts his "statement" but all he knows is what the piece of shit driver relayed back to him. In truth the driver was upset with us because we weren't in awe of his DIY seniority and couldn't believe we argued with eachother. He blamed his frustrations on the fact that we pissed in bottles in the van and that i pissed in a stairwell of a squat, which i apologized for the next day. And which he lied to Flo about saying i pissed in the band sleeping room. Why would i piss where i have to sleep?? Fast forward a few days and we are all going to see a monument in Barcelona and Fab the driver walks away from the group. I had been driving and had locked the doors. When we get to the monument Rusty see's Fab (the driver) at the van with the door open. He does not know we saw this. When we get back to the van and drive a couple hours towards france i realize my backpack is gone. it has my passport, cell phone, i pod ect in it. The driver had already expressed that he thought i was "the most stupid, ignorant and disrespectful person" he had met "in the last three weeks." I was suspicious to say the least. I asked him if he had gone to the van after we had all gotten out to go to the monument and he said NO. I asked him twice if he had gone to the van and opened any doors after we all got out to go to the monument and he said NO. Later he comes out to talk to Rusty and I and I told him that Rusty had seen him at the van with the door open. He started shaking uncontrollably and finally admitted he had been at the van with the doors open. I asked him why he left the doors unlocked in the middle of downtown Barcelona and he said "because he was frustrated with us". He then stated that he does not give a fuck about my personal belongings. Rusty then asked him if he had done anything with my bag, and Fab tried to say something but stuttered uncontrollably. I then asked him to look at me in the eyes and tell me he didn't do anything with my bag. It shouldn't be that hard if he didn't do it. He could not give me an answer. He just looked around shaking and freaking out, even tearing up. After catching him in his lie about going to the van and his inability to look at me and tell me he didn't do anything with my bag i assumed that he was the one responsible. He called flo and the van owner and told them we accused him of stealing my backpack and that we were awful people. They immediately decided to cancel the tour based on his statements. The next day the van owner and Flo demanded we drive the van immediately back to Berlin and pay them even though we told them we didn't have enough money. We asked the van driver if he realized that he was responsible for all this and he said yes he did. He even went as far as to say he regretted it. Rusty asked him to call the van owner and ask him if we could keep going on the tour, which he did. The van owner already had his mind made up and said hell no bring the van home now. Once we got to Berlin we were met by the van owner and his punk buddies who stole our guitars. I tried to jump into the back of the van and grab Duncan's guitar but three punk goons immediately grabbed me. We then hung out in berlin and had a pretty good time despite the van owner telling every human alive in Berlin not to help us out in any way. Pretty hilarious considering we were gonna try and play some shows to raise money to pay him so we could get the guitars back, but he sabotaged that by telling every venue not to book us and every van owner not to rent us a van. On top of that we couldn't continue tour because we did not have our guitars, which they still have. Everyone in Europe was very cool to us except these 3 german guys. Thats what we get for booking with these assholes that do it "for the bands" and "for diy". This is Matt ,not Rusty by the way.
