A NEW THRONE FOR THE KING OF THE VETIVERS

Will Ben Champion, the legendary drummer for The Vetivers, play with any more skill or talent than usual at the next Vetivers concert? That is the question that the world is asking since Ben will no longer be playing on a cold, metal folding chair that has been his trademark for all these years. Renowned humanitarian and Vetivers guitarist Jimmy March recently bought Ben an actual drum stool!

Ben has yet to play on his new throne, but already the music industry is abuzz with predictions on how this will change the Vetivers' sound.

"I think this will finally give them the respect they deserve," says Timmy, a small boy who wanders the streets dressed in tattered rags. "I've often heard chair jokes about Ben and I think it really took away from the magic of Vetivers concerts."

The Vetivers will have their first "drumstool practice" the day before Thanksgiving at Jimmy's house, and extra security will be on hand for the event. This could be the most commotion at Jimmy's house since Sarah put a scratch in Jimmy's nice guitar, which is not that nice anymore.
