Maybe I am retarded…..but that’s not even close to the US Festival kit.


The poor folks play for keeps down here…They’re the living dead. Nobody rules these streets at night like Van Halen!!

Pfff, that might be SOME of the drum kit from the US Festival, but it’s missing quite a few pieces. Only 2 bass drums?

From Alex Van Halen’s tech
“yes…thats the real deal. its not complete..but its enough. but the dude that is selling it is totally unrealistic….his reserve is $35,000 ! and he started the bidding at .99 cents!”
So it is the real thing for sure. Start bidiing LOL!!!

Thanks Brian, I was gonna mail you with this one, I thought it looked legit as the laminates looked old an faded, everything looked period correct …the only thing he could of done was to do the lips graphic years back, but pics of this particular kit would of been scarce back in the day (oh the wonders of the internet!).
Great piece of history to buy there if he’d take the reserve off, hope it doesn’t rocket too high after Brian’s Provenance :mrgreen: wonder how much he paided for it :-?
