Interesting that AFO and BT were recorded on a silverface bassman and not his Mesa.

Assume it's just a clear-out, rather than for the money. He'd be punting the Jackson Pollock if he was in dire need. Maybe £3m+ doesn't go that far these days?

I see that 'Second Touring Limited', which is the company they used for the gigs, issued a formal notice of liquidation at the end of October, that by 24th Dec. the company would be dissolved...

Only Brown still has the IBEX company, which is for song publishing.

He's 55. He has more money in the bank that ever before. He has 2 young kids and he looked like he was in poor health for the majority of the reunion. It's time for him to put his feet up and enjoy the rest of his life.

I think you have it really, bit of a clear out, sure he still has a couple off guitars about.

I reckon he is selling this stuff and getting into biking to get fit for his kids, etc. Expect to see him donning the lycra and speeding down an A road near you

Noel G sold a lot of stuff on Reverb, many artists do. What worries me is that he autographed everything to up the value. Another cash grab it seems like. "I don't have to sell my soul, just all my autographed gear:" :o

Yeah, coz 55 is ancient for a musician.

Getting paid a fortune to travel the world must be such a chore for the poor lad. :roll:

Second Touring was only incorporated in November 2015 though, so what did they use for the earlier gigs?

Actually makes sense that the bass was done on a bassman. They're quiet as fuck.
