A Fan/Facebook friend of my pal Neal posted this awesome cake photo on his FB page for his recent Birthday, and I stole it because it is rules. The drums, cymbals and hardware all appear to be made of edible fondant, which tastes like ass but looks pretty cool.
The original band called Alice Cooper released its sixth studio album, Billion Dollar Babies, on this date, February 25th, in 1973. Billion Dollar Babies, which went to the Number One position on every chart, is a very special album for me. Favorite Song: “No More Mr. Nice Guy.”
Here I am on one of Alice Cooper Drummer Neal Smith’s drum kits. All of Neal’s Gold and Platinum Albums earned for sales of Alice Cooper band records are on the walls behind me. Billion Dollar Babies is in there, somewhere.
This sculpture, entitled Melting Guitar, was created as part of the Young Artists Exhibition in Switzerland. I tried to find more information on the sculpture, such as the artist’s name or what year this exhibition is from, but it just kept taking me back to this image embedded on various Tumbler blogs. If you know anything about Melting Guitar please leave a comment below, thanks!
Thanks to Ava Rave for the Image!
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 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.
