It is believed a truck and all the Roy Wood Rock 'n' Roll Band's equipment, including guitars and amplifiers, were taken from a warehouse on Dewsbury Road in Leeds in the early hours of this morning.

We are sorry to inform you tonights gig at Hull City Hall has been cancelled. The warehouse has been broken into and all the band equipment and truck has been stolen.

If anyone has any information regarding the whereabouts of any of this equipment (possibly around the Leeds area) including the Fender Strat guitars and red Marshall amps Roy uses please message us, we would be extremely grateful.
