    What a great event!!!!

    Would love to go, but it’s a little far from Tennessee. I purchased a Pearl “Ian Paice Sigature” Snare for my drum set couple of years back and use it in our band “LOzT CAUz”. What a great instrument!I got a head signed by Ian Paice at the last concert we saw in Illinoise (I don’t play on the signed drum head of course. It’s mounted on the wall). Sure would love to win the one they are offering as a prize. I don’t know though……it’s a really tough question. Does anyone know the answer? Ha ha ha…..
