Drum kit from famous drumming duo sold to raise money for a cancer charity

Steve and Alan White, who played on the drums for the Style Council and Oasis respectively, have sold a Pearl drum kit to raise money for a cancer centre.
Great deals on musical instruments
Two of Britain's most famous drummers – who also happen to be brothers – have sold one of their classic drum kits to raise money for a cancer centre.

Steve White, who used to play drums for the Style Council, and his brother Alan, who used to bang away for Oasis, sold the drums in order to generate funds for the Clatterbridge Centre for Oncology on the Wirral in Merseyside.

It's a cause close to Steve's heart as his pal Phil Morris received treatment there a few years ago.

"While I was being treated the nursing staff really looked after me. They are amazing and there aren't enough words to describe how I feel about them and the wonderful work they do," Mr Morris said.

A fan paid up to £1,000 for the white-marine Pearl drums.

Steve said: "I'm only too happy to put some money towards the excellent work done at Clatterbridge and also raise awareness about testicular cancer."

The Style Council was an English band from the 80s, headed up by ex-Jam star Paul Weller. Oasis were a hugely popular rock band from Manchester, fronted by Liam Gallagher.
