Norma Jean loses some gear to home robbery

Mon, February 2, 2015 10:11 AM PT6,772 views

Norma Jean reports that the home of frontman Cory Brandan's brother, Matt Putnam, was recently robbed. Among the items taken was Norma Jean's bass gear, in addition to one of their older drum sets. Here's the official word from Cory:
"Very recently, a really sad individual broke into the house of my brother and his family and robbed them. A lot of music equipment was taken including a drum set used during very early Norma Jean days. "Besides the kit being taken we lost all our bass gear, Matt's other drum set, a lot of other miscellaneous equipment and countless personal items. "Some really cool friends of ours put up a place to donate to at least replace Matt's drums. If you have a couple bucks and want to help him out, here's the place. Thanks!"

I feel like the only thing this band does is crash their van or get robbed

Last I checked, homeowners insurance should cover a burglary (his house wasn't robbed). Where is this money going?

THAT GUY IS A MUSIC PIRATE AND A ROBBER. ANYONE WHO DOWNLOADS OUR MUSIC IS NO BETTER THAN SOMEONE WHO COMMITS THIS ROBBERY. I HOPE THE WHOLE WORLD OF SCENE KIDS KNOW THAT THEY OWE US MONEY AND NEVER HAVE TO RAISE A FAMILY FULL OF INBREDS DESPITE OF TOURING AND SELLING THOUSANDS OF YOUTH LARGE SHIRTS, BELTS AND BANDANAS

I just barfed from all of the stupidity above this comment. Pull it together morons. What a bunch of sad twats you all are. Here's hoping that NJ gets their shit back and raises enough money to get some new equipment. The page was set up for his brother (by a friend), so NJ really doesn't have much to do with it. His brother Mat is a very hardworking musician that most of you fcks have heard at one point or another. They are just looking out for their bro and sharing the fundraiser.

Shut the fck up you stupid butthurt twat. Here's a toast to terrible musicians asking for handouts

Although he may want a $5000 drumkit, he did not have one before, and he damn sure does not "need" one now. This comes off like an insurance scam.

Hey Snoopy, eat an entire bag of dicks. You are nothing.
