Oh boy, these are cool drums, right? They remind me of my favorite black Timberland sneakers that have pink glitter vinyl accents on them. According to the watermark on the photo, this kit appears to have been photographed at the Amsterdam Drum Show in 2010 by the fine folks at Trixon Drums, a German vintage drum company. Check them out at the link above, because their stuff looks amazing!
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.
