    Prince - "Prince" Kick-Drum Head From His First Touring Band (1979-1980). A 25" in total diameter kick-drum head with "Prince" painted in large black cursive lettering just above the hole used to facilitate mic'ing. Prince's first touring band included drummer Bobby Z. (Robert Rivkin). There are several photo matches online, most notably a video of Prince's TV debut on The Midnight Special in 1980 and a series of images taken at a December 1, 1979 concert at the The Palace in Houston, Texas in which both the drummer's kick-drums display the "Prince" heads. The head comes with a detailed, interesting letter of provenance signed by the consignor who was given the head by a member of Prince's production staff. A very rare and extremely cool Prince item. In excellent condition showing only modest signs of concert abuse.
