This photo is pulled from an 1977 Slingerland Drum Advertisement for their custom wrap kit, where they’d make shell wraps with whatever image you wanted on them. I’m not sure if some clever drummer out there actually made a Coca Cola Kit, but the photo sure is cool!
My friend Chris, who lives down in Satellite Beach, Florida sent me this picture of a drum kit that was designed for him by our mutual pal, Rikki Rockett of the band Poison. Here’s what Chris had to say about this very awesome pink camouflage kit:
“Seeing as how you’re such a drum enthusiast, I thought I’d attach a photo of my new custom Rockett Drum Works kit. I asked Rikki to create something very outrageous and unique (gay) for me. I think he succeeded!”
Chris isn’t gay, but the fact that he described the drum kit as gay bumps him up a few notches in my book. I probably should have posted this yesterday in honor of Gay Pride, but I was too busy running all over New York City, having the Gayest Day Ever with Geoffrey. You’ll be reading more about that later, I’m sure.
