What’s the most illegal thing you’ve ever done?

“I stole a guitar pickup from a store when I was 15. Don’t read this and think it’s cool – it isn’t! I’m not a thief, I’ve never stolen anything else in my life, but I really wanted this expensive DiMarzio pickup for my Fender Stratocaster because Joe Satriani had it. I planned it all – I wore my dad’s baggy sweatpants so I could hide it and went in on a quiet morning. I put it in my pocket and I started breathing so fast and I got cold sweats when I left. My parents found out a few months later and I got a real bollocking for it. I still have the pickup. I thought about returning it but the store closed… I wonder why! ”
