1988 Drum Set Purportedly Once Owned By Ex-GUNS N' ROSES Drummer STEVEN ADLER Can Be Yours For $125,000

A 1988 Tama three-piece drum set purportedly once owned by former GUNS N' ROSES drummer Steven Adler is up for grabs on eBay, with an asking price of $125,000.

The seller's official description reads: "1988 Tama Rockstar Custom Faux Rock 3 Piece Drum Set, Owned and Used by Steven Adler Guns And Roses. Ultra Rare to find any Gear from Guns and Roses from 'in the Day' This kit was used between 1988 to 1991 when it was sold in 1991 it was kept in pristine condition until recently discovered. Has original set of Heads and comes completely with hardware Cymbals. What you see in the pic is what comes with the set. It does include the original heads. As you know this would be very expensive to ship so please keep that in mind."

Note: The drum kit in the above picture is **NOT** the one that is being sold.

Steven was the drummer for GUNS N' ROSES from 1985 to 1990. He was eventually fired from the band due to his drug addiction, which caused him to spiral down into depression and more drug use.

Adler's autobiography, "My Appetite for Destruction: Sex, and Drugs, and Guns N' Roses", came out in July 2010. In the book, Adler tells all, fearlessly addressing his struggles with heroin and crack addiction; his financial ruin after being kicked out of GN'R; his shattered marriage; and the severe health problems that nearly claimed his life on several occasions.

GUNS N' ROSES was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2012. Adler, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan attended the ceremony, while singer Axl Rose and founding guitarist Izzy Stradlin stayed home.
