VITAL REMAINS Drummer Offers Reward For Return Of Stolen Cymbals, Case

VITAL REMAINS drummer Tim Yeung has had all of his cymbals and his case stolen following the group's performance at the Knitting Factory in Hollywood, CA Sunday night (April 9).

Commented Yeung: "It happened between 11:45 p.m. and 12:45 a.m. while DEICIDE [the headlining band] was on stage.

"I cannot believe someone would stoop down so low and steal someone else's gear that they worked so hard to acquire. This is how I make a living, and to the contrary, I pay for all my gear out of my own pocket. My 20" Ziljdian ride was in there. I saved up for two months to buy it when I was 16 years old. My 18" B8 pro Chinese which I have had for 13 years was also in there. They have both been with me almost my entire career. My case was a gift given to me from my father 11 years ago — they are all irreplaceable.

"Here is a list of the other cymbals that were stolen:
