Hello everybody.
 
I won the Green Day Grand Prize at the iHeart Radio Music Festival last September.  About an hour before the band went out and Billie Joe stormed off stage, I met the band and they signed a Fender P bass, Les Paul Jr. Billie Joe Armstrong guitar (TV Yellow, a copy of the one he smashed onstage), and a Gretsch Catalina Club drum set with accessories.  In a couple weeks, I will be putting them on eBay for sale.  Stay tuned for more details.  Thanks!

The whole experience of the concert was really awesome.  The Clear Channel guys came and took my wife and I backstage.  Once back there, there were other people who got their pictures taken with the band.  There were families getting pics with the band.  It was hilarious.  All of the others left.  They had our musical equipment set up in a corner.  They came over and said "Hello. Congrats." and signed.  They were all really cool.

I only fixed the unforgivable one.
Ad seriously though, this could either make me very happy or catch a good price.

So bearing in mind this was about an hour before a certain moment in GD history; how was Billie's demeanour ?

Billie did not say much.  When he was taking pictures with the families, we could tell he was on another level.  It was hilarious.  He had kids in fake head locks. Very animated.

I will also consider offers before putting on ebay.  Just start a private thread/conversation.  I will get some pics up soon.

How exactly did you win the contest? A random drawing? An essay contest? A look alike contest?

I won the initial contest to go to the concert.  They called me a couple weeks later and told me I had won the Green Day grand prize.  I believe most of the grand prize winners were randomly selected.  It was a completely awesome experience.

Quick question, are you going to sell it all together or all separately?

Thanks for the interest.  I am going to sell them all separately.  The drums will include all the accessories they sent me.  The minimum bids will be marked at a really good price.  And again, I will remind everybody that I will consider serious offers before putting them on eBay. Just message me in a private conversation.  Thanks!
