Former Oasis drummer Tony McCarroll is auctioning off his old drumkit – and there's possible interest from football star Wayne Rooney.

McCarroll, who left the band in 1995 after appearing on their debut album 'Definitely Maybe', took Oasis to court in 1999 over lost profits, finally settling for £600,000 out of court. He has now spoken to The Sun about his current situation, and has said that he will be selling his old band memorabilia.

He said: "I've never taken advantage of the Oasis connections over the years. There have been a lot of offers and opportunities but I just never felt the need to. I've been living a really normal life, nothing much has been going on. I've been looking into DJing with Clint Boon."

He added that: "I heard a rumour Wayne Rooney was interested in buying the drumkit and thought that might be better than leaving it in storage. It has been locked away for years with all my old discs, so it's getting dusted down now. It was a great recording set — Premier kit. Back in the day we would hire cymbals but the bass drum, toms and Black Beauty snare were mine. It's all up for auction. If this rolls out well I'll be giving part of the proceeds to a music-related charity too."

The winner of the auction will be revealed next month.
