scott rockenfield

Queensryche drummer Scott Rockenfield has put his drum kit up for sale on Ebay.

First of all, Rockenfield is the drummer of the Queensryche that is fronted by Todd La Torre, not the Queensryche that is fronted by Geoff Tate.

Secondly, there appears to be nothing sinister about this situation, as Rockenfield says in a statement that he wants to "make room for building a brand new kit".

Rockenfield said: "Hey friends and fellow Rÿchers!! After receiving a few requests, I've decided to sell my studio kit from last week and make room for building a brand new kit for next year!

"I've been doing this as my 'business' end of things for decades now, but thought that some of you may be interested. That being said, I posted the kit on my Ebay store last nite, so if anyone wants to take a look, you can check it out here:



Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
