A huge thank you to our very first artist Craig Blundell for being an amazing friend & ambassador this last 24 years. And, for this wonderful post 😎👊🏻 THANK YOU Craig 🙏🏻 #wearefamily :- Today this rig has left to be flown to Canada for the North American part of the 3rd leg of the Steven Wilson #tothebonetour starting two weeks tomorrow in Tokyo. Me and my techs over the years have always kept my rigs immaculate and that’s largely down to the cases they travel in. 24 years ago after doing a little thing on the generation game and getting all my gear home in sheets, towels and blankets in my battered old car I spoke to this lovely guy in Cornwall called Dean who’s advert I saw in rhythm magazine. He signed me as an artist (their first) I really I had no right as I was no-one with no credits and appeal apart from being full of ambition and ideas, but, we got on great and he showed wonderful support that year. As my career path changed, with various ups and downs they still stood by me where most would drop you in a heartbeat and still do if you’re out of favour but he treated me amazingly well even when the gigs dried up. Fast forward 24 years and I still use their cases and luggage, they have been around the world countless amounts of times. In this set up I have a couple of cases that are 17 years old and still going strong, and in storage in Europe another rig that’s in cases that are over 15 years old and still doing their jobs. I’d just like to say to my friends at Protection Racket a HUGE ‘thank you’ for their love and support.
24 years and counting #wearefamily #protectionracket #protectionracketcases
