A tumble dryer owned by Guns N’ Roses in the 1980s is, bizarrely, currently up for auction.
The W-10 Kenmore Dryer comes in its very own Guns N’ Roses branded flight case and is being sold on eBay by the band’s touring crew, reports the AV Club. The bidding for the dryer started at $99. The item weighs in at a hefty 278 pounds.
In the eBay listing, the seller writes: “To make room for new stuff, Guns N’ Roses touring crew recently went through the band’s warehouse and cleared out a bunch of gear, equipment and props the band no longer need…
“A number of items such as amplifiers, keyboards, rack/outboard gear, guitar effects, pedal boards, staging, props, backdrops and road cases will be listed over the next few weeks.”
Last month, EuroMillions winner Adrian Bayford said he would love to spend some of his £148 million winnings reuniting the original line-up of Guns N’ Roses.
Bayford, who is 41 and runs a music shop in Haverhill, Suffolk, told The Sun that his dream would be to reunite the estranged rockers and would happily spend some of his newly acquired fortune on making it happen.
Asked if he’d like to splash out on a big gig, he said: “I think I would just have to get Guns N’ Roses together – the original line-up, mind. I am a real fan.”
Of the line-up that recorded 1987’s ‘Appetite For Destruction’, drummer Steven Adler was fired in 1990 and guitarist Izzy Stradlin quit the following year. Five years later Slash quit and was followed by bassist Duff McKagan in 1997. Both McKagan and Stradlin have joined the new line-up of the band onstage at various events, but Slash has now not performed with singer Axl Rose in almost 20 years.
