Someone asked the one question(its posted on the item's page):

  I do not know what Marinos and my friend talked about but he mentioned another collector drum set from a 1930s band that went for $50,000 recently.


I wonder whose drums went for $50,000?!!!

the 1930s vs. the 1980s is one heck of a difference in time...

Something from the 30s would be considered antique....

Isn't anything over 25 years old to be considered an antique? Or is that a classic?  Or is that just for cars?!  Maybe he should wait a few years and then try and sell it!

As for music, did you know this about how music is considered a classic?

    *  When was it recorded? If it was within the past 10-15 years, it hasn?t been around long enough to be considered classic, no matter how big a hit it was or who recorded it. On the other hand, the mere fact that it was recorded 30 years ago doesn?t automatically mean it?s considered classic.

    * How big a hit was it? It may have been a personal favorite of yours, but in order to qualify as classic, it has to have been the personal favorite of a few million of your closest friends, too.

    * Who recorded it? This will no doubt be a factor in how big a hit it was, but if only one or two songs from a particular album were widely accepted, it isn?t likely the artist or group falls into the classic category.

    * Can you still hear it on the radio? Purple People Eater may have been a huge hit in 1958, but you won't hear it on a classic rock station today. As with automobiles, there is a big difference between classic and antique.

The drums are back on eBay.  The price is down to $4500.

Now THAT is funny!

I wonder if that person will get the money for the drums. I want to play drums and pink would be great, but I don't have that kind of cash lying around!

I'm going to do a little snooping around this weekend and see if I can find out the authenticity of this guy's claim....

I can tell you that you don't need to do a little snooping.  They are for real!

I asked a reliable source who knows Jimmy well and he looked at me like I was crazy when I told him about the Ebay drum set.
He said that he did not think that the drums were authentic and that to his best recollection, Jimmy's drums had flames on the side of them.

Of course, I never saw the band during that period of time....so I don't recall what they looked like! Smiley

If Solodka says with certainty that they are real, I believe it. 

(I saw the Romantics MANY times during the '80's with Jimmy drumming, and I NEVER saw flames on his drums.)

Your source is definitely different from mine... My source seemed to indicate that he didn't think that those were the right ones....
But then again....

Either way, I certainly don't have the $$$ to buy Jimmy's drums. Even though Pink would suit ME fine! Wink
