I’ll admit that yes, owning the drum set on which Guided by Voices drummer Kevin Fennell recorded such stone-cold classic records as Bee Thousand and Alien Lanes would be pretty awesome. But probably not for more money than anyone I know makes in a year.
And yet: Fennell is selling his kit on eBay for a whopping $55,000. The fact that he’d be willing to part with his kit (which it seems like he’s very attached to, understandably), and that he believes anyone would be willing to drop that kind of cash, makes me wonder whether Fennell hasn’t fallen on hard difficult financial times.
Zero bids so far.
