Original CARCASS drummer Ken Owen is auctioning off the drum kit that he used on the albums “Necroticism – Descanting The Insalubrious” (1991) and “Heartwork” (1993).
The auction is to raise funds for the drummer who currently needs a new computer to assist him in continuing to create music. Included with the drum kit is a framed certificate of authenticity signed by Owen, a framed photo of Owen signing the certificate, a framed photo of Ken behind the drum kit, and a framed CARCASS t-shirt as worn by Ken in the photos.
Owen suffered a brain hemorrhage back in February of 1999, which left him in a coma for over 10 months and the inability to play the way he used to. When CARCASS reunited in 2007, drummer Daniel Erlandsson and then later Daniel Wilding sat behind the kit.
Ken reportedly gave his approval to bassist/vocalist Jeff Walker and guitarist Bill Steer to continue with CARCASS and was supportive during the recording process of the band’s 2013 comeback album “Surgical Steel”.
