NOW FOR SALE: GUNS N’ ROSES’ OLD… DRYER (SERIOUSLY)
We’ve seen some pretty weird items for sale on eBay in the past — including Dio’s childhood home, Devin Townsend’s old spatula, and Black Sabbath’s integrity — but this might take the cake: someone is now auctioning off an old dryer that allegedly once belonged to Guns N’ Roses.
According to the accompanying product description, “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.” So I guess this is the dryer the band took out on the road them, because, y’know, sometimes it’s hard to come by dryers when you’re a rock star staying in nice hotels and headlining arenas. Maybe Axl Rose’s not-at-all-crazy-looking psychic, Sharon Maynard, told him it was bad juju to dry his clothes in a dryer used by other people?
The seller, whose eBay handle is dvamp2u, has 99.1% positive feedback, so I guess I have no real reason to dispute the authenticity of this item. That being said, I did find this contradictory part of the product description completely hilarious:
“Unless specified, we cannot accommodate any requests to get items autographed or authenticated (please do not ask)… no certificate of authenticity will be included.
So it’s good to know that I can authenticate this item that you refuse to authenticate. Who the fuck wrote this thing, Frankie Palmeri?
Bid here if you’re in desperate need of a dryer, or don’t have the ability to stencil the words “Guns N’ Roses” on your own road case. The seller also has some actual musical equipment if you want that instead.
