A 1988 Tama three-piece drum set purportedly once owned by former GUNS N' ROSES drummer Steven Adler is up for grabs on eBay, with an asking price of $125,000.
The seller's official description reads: "1988 Tama Rockstar Custom Faux Rock 3 Piece Drum Set, Owned and Used by Steven Adler Guns And Roses.

Note: The drum kit in the above picture is **NOT** the one that is being sold.
Steven was the drummer for GUNS N' ROSES from 1985 to 1990. He was eventually fired from the band due to his drug addiction, which caused him to spiral down into depression and more drug use.
Adler's autobiography, "My Appetite for Destruction: Sex, and Drugs, and Guns N' Roses", came out in July 2010. In the book, Adler tells all, fearlessly addressing his struggles with heroin and crack addiction; his financial ruin after being kicked out of GN'R; his shattered marriage; and the severe health problems that nearly claimed his life on several occasions.
GUNS N' ROSES was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2012. Adler, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan attended the ceremony, while singer Axl Rose and founding guitarist Izzy Stradlin stayed home.
