“You never forget your first love,” he says, as did a Canadian rock star who has been searching for his first love for almost half a century.
According to Canadian media, Canadian rock star Randy Bachmann has finally found his guitar after 46 years. A fan helped him find it.
Randy Bachmann wrote the song “Original American Woman”. His guitar was stolen from a Toronto hotel in 1976. He cried for three days when his guitar was stolen.
The guitar was handed over to him in Tokyo on Friday at a ceremony at the Canadian embassy.
Randy Bachman, 78, said he composed hundreds of songs with the guitar. “It was like my magic guitar, and then when it suddenly left me, the magic was gone.”
“I was devastated by the theft of the guitar,” he said.
The guitar was also special to Randy Bachmann because he bought it for نو 400 for various jobs and wages.
It was the first thing he had bought in his youth. “People in my band used to make fun of me but I worked hard to buy it, so I didn’t want it to be stolen.”
The Canadian rock star has been searching for his guitar for a long time. He also mentioned this in his interviews.
In 2020, his Canadian fan William Long heard his story about the guitar. William Long tried to find the guitar on the Internet, and within two weeks he was able to find it in Tokyo.
The guitar was bought by a Japanese musician in 2014 from Tokyo for about 6,300.
“I was confident I would find him,” said William Long, 58.
The Japanese musician was given another guitar in exchange for this one.
