One of my favorite people in the world has fallen victim to the greed of a thief. His one of a kind Gibson acoustic guitar (so one of a kind, in fact, that only 3 of them exist– the second belongs to Willie Nelson, and the third to Dan Rather) which was made from wood taken from an old army barracks in Texas, was stolen after his show last night (December 23rd) at the Saxon Pub in Austin.
Walt’s music has touched many, including myself, and he has long been a shining star of brilliance and compassion to those lucky enough to know him.
If you have any information as to its whereabouts, please send Walt an email:
