House burned down yesterday.

No more Rock Band for me for a while. I lost pretty much everything.

Writing from a hotel room on a computer I was able to rescue.

The XBOX, 2 Mustangs, 2 Keyboards (one that I customized), MPA (also customized), Rock Band 3 drum set, 2 Rock Band 2 guitars and well pretty much everything I own was destroyed.

Hopefully once the insurance company sorts through all the wreckage I'll get a new system and replace as many peripherals as I can.

    This is horrible. It almost happened to me some years ago.

    I just have to say that the only really important thing is that noone got hurt somehow.

    Feel verry sorry for you.

    I hope the insurance comes through quickly and you managed to recover as many irreplaceable items as you could. Best of luck with moving forward.

    Oh my goodness. I'm extremely sorry to hear this, but I'm glad to hear that you escaped unharmed. That's the most important thing. Still, while I can't imagine how difficult that must be, I do understand that it must be terrible. You're in our thoughts and prayers.

    Hope you have a good insurance policy that won't be stingy, I saw a trailer trash mother and kids in a Walmart after their trailer burned down buying ridiculous amounts of things you know they never had. Sorry to hear man, hope things get better.

    Sorry to hear that. But if no one got hurt, that's the important thing. Stuff is just stuff. It can be replaced. Hopefully soon, so that you can get back to your normal routine.

    Sorry to hear that, that's terrible.

    If it's any help, a family member of mine had the same thing happen (electrical fire) and their insurance paid for the entire construction of the new house (their cat was also killed in the fire and that was actually what they were really upset about, not the actual house burning down). Their house actually looks a lot better now since it's brand new and they only really had to pay for new appliances, so hopefully your insurance does the same thing, there's no reason they shouldn't. Good luck getting everything back together again.

    Gosh, that's terrible. :( Has the cause of the fire been figured out yet? Hopefully the insurance company processes everything quickly and fairly.

    If you have pets, did you get them all out too?

    Really glad nobody was hurt. As rough as it is, items are replaceable, the ones you love aren't.

    I'm surprised that you're bothered by the destroyed RB equipment more than you are the loss of any real instruments, or musical recordings and whatnot that might have been on hard drives/computers you weren't able to save. Toys can be replaced cheaply and easily; actual equipment, not so cheap; Compositions, sketches and art, not cheap and definitely not easy.

    Either way, that's a huge bummer. Here's hoping things turn out for the better.
