Rick Astley’s home in Surrey, England was recently broken in to and the 80’s star had his collection of 80’s guitars stolen.
Rick says the instruments had a lot of sentimental value. He used them in his first global tours after his breakthrough hit “Never Gonna Give You Up” made him a household name.
Astley told British podcaster Tom Watson, "They had a lot of memories. They’d been around the world." Rationalizing the loss, he adds, "So, I’ve kind of detached myself from the prize possession thing of owning guitars any more. Because you don’t know whether you’re going to own them forever anyway."
