Today was a very surreal day for me. This all started a couple weeks ago at the NAMM show. It was early on Friday before the show started when Todd Trent told me I needed to go talk with a friend of his. He had a friend who says he has Dennis Wilson's monster Blaemire kit. Jerry Jenkins had always mentioned this kit, but we could never find any pictures of it. This was a kit built by Howie Oliver, whom had built the other kits for Hal Blaine, Karen Carpenter, and Ringo Starr. This kit was built for Brother Studios, which was owned by the Beach Boys. I met their former production/equipment manager who has stored the kit for the last 40 years. It was very exciting to see this kit, and all I could think was how much Jerry would have loved to see this kit.
