IT WAS anything but music to his ears when an overzealous wannabe roadie was left out of pocket by a Gladstone Magistrate.
Thomas Allan Randle pleaded guilty to one count of stealing when he appeared in Gladstone Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
The plea followed a drunken escapade after Wolfmother's performance at Harvey Rd Tavern on June 5.
The court heard that just before midnight, Randle helped himself to one of the band's speakers.
Throwing the speaker on his shoulder, Randle walked straight out the front doors of the pub, before dropping, and damaging it, in the car park.
The equipment was owned by Magnum PA Hire.
Randle was fined $800 but escaped having a conviction recorded, while he was ordered to pay $1600 restitution to Magnum PA Hire for the damage caused.
