Randy Bachman to be reunited with his guitar that was lost for four decades

The Guardian

Rock star Randy Bachman will be reunited with a favorite guitar that was lost for more than four decades thanks to an internet sleuth who identified the instrument in a Christmas performance by Japanese musicians.

The writer of hit songs such as American Woman and band member in Bachman Turner Overdrive and The Guess Who had his rare Gretsch guitar stolen from a Toronto Holiday Inn hotel in 1976, and had all but given up hope of ever seeing it again.

The 78-year-old musician told CNN, “Part of me was lost.” Bachman told CBC he wept the night the guitar was stolen.
