Sally Ann drum kit offer -sad or glad, song?

4 Jun

In the window of the Salvation Army shop in Boscombe, yesterday, was a very small drum kit with “Leedy” on the big round one at the front. I noticed that the chrome of the drum was rusty. The other, smaller drums had rusty chrome too. Had they been in some garage somewhere? Was there tragedy or triumph in the story they had to tell?

Were they abandoned when some drummer moved on up to a bigger set of things to bang? Or were they a birthday present for a kid who no longer needed them for some sadder reason, you imagine it. Too bad Readers Digest is dying. It is just their kind of drama, potentially.

    Maybe the previous owner saw a Buddy Rich performance…
