Armed Robbers Break Into the Home of Iron Maiden Bassist Steve Harris
Well, this is friggin’ horrifying: according to Tribune 242, armed robbers recently broke into Iron Maiden bassist Steve Harris’ home in The Bahamas’ Cable Beach. The men held a knife to the throat of Philip Pierre, the property’s caretaker of more than forty-three years, “left him in a pool of blood wrapped in duct tape,” and then stole $8,000 worth of stuff.
Two men are apparently now in police custody, and $5,000 worth of the stolen goods have been recovered. And $3,000 probably ain’t much to Mr. Harris, who is a founding member of one of the biggest bands in the world.
Still… ugh. Really upsetting to think about what happened to poor Mr. Pierre. We like to think that due to their wealth celebrities don’t have to worry about this kind of stuff, but that’s obviously not true.
