Canadian Rock Star Reunited With Stolen Guitar
They say you never forget your first love, and after pining for his stolen guitar for almost half a century,
Canadian rock star Randy Bachman has finally been reunited with the instrument which an eagle-eyed fan tracked down in Japan.
Bachman, who wrote the original "American Woman" with his band The Guess Who,
was in Tokyo for the emotional handover on Friday -- 46 years after his cherished orange Gretsch was snatched from a Toronto hotel.
"Wow," a stunned Bachman said, holding the guitar lovingly and tuning it up on stage before playing in a special concert at the Canadian Embassy.
The 78-year-old said he had been "pretty much devastated" by the theft.
