Rick Astley lost his prized guitars from the 1980s during a break-in at his home.

The Together Forever hitmaker, 55, revealed the instruments, which “weren’t super valuable but were valuable to me,” were snatched during a robbery at his home in Surrey, England.

Admitting the experience taught him to ‘detach himself’ from material possessions, he told former Labor Party deputy leader Tom Watson’s Persons of Interest podcast: “We had a break-in at the last house. Some of the guitars I’d had from back in the ’80s and stuff were stolen.”

“They had a lot of memories. They’d been around the world,” explained the Never Gonna Give You Up singer. “So, I’ve kind of detached myself from the prize possession thing of owning guitars any more… Because you don’t know whether you’re going to own them forever anyway.”
