Fan pays $20K for Freese

Late last year FasterLouder reported that superstar drummer Josh Freese was offering fans some bespoke deals. For $7 you could pick up a signed copy of Freese’s solo album Since 1972, while at the other end of the scale $75,000 would secure you the man’s services as a sticksman or personal assistant.

A cool $20,000 buys a “signed drum-kit, miniature golf trip and drum lesson or back massage” – a bargain one young American fan couldn’t pass up. Speaking to Music Radar last week, Freese revealed he was going beyond the call of duty to please his 19-year-old charge (who possibly “blew his inheritance or something”).

“He was only supposed to get one day, but we’re stretching it out into a couple of days,” Freese enthused. “He’s coming over my house in a little bit and I’ll let him go through my closet. I’ll give him this really great snare that I used on the last Nine Inch Nails tour.

“I took him to meet [Devo’s] Mark Mothersbaugh, and earlier today, Maynard from Tool was nice enough to come and play miniature golf with us. I have to play on Slash’s album later today…maybe I’ll take him to that.”

Sound like a good deal? What would you want for your 20 grand?

True, but they really added some great incentive to that deal!
