A drum set played by Shrieve at the 1969 Woodstock festival sold for $187,500, while Copeland's original TAMA kit went for $121,600.

The instruments were among more than 380 lots sold during the "Music Icons" sale, which was hosted by Julien's Auctions.

Other rock-related collectibles auctioned at a high price tag at the event include a sketch by John Lennon that laid out the concept for the cover of The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album and a Gibson Les Paul guitar Slash played during the 2011 Super Bowl Halftime Show, which both sold for $87,500.

In addition, a painting by late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain of four raccoons in a tree fetched $64,000 and a fringed cape worn by The Who's Roger Daltrey at the 1967 Monterey Pop festival brought in $46,250.

The most expensive item at the auction was a horseshoe-shaped diamond ring Elvis Presley wore during his famous 1973 Aloha from Hawaii television special, which sold for $204,800.

ABC RadioRoger Waters gave about a thousand "friends and family" members a preview of his Us Them Tour on Sunday at Meadowlands Arena in East Rutherford, New Jersey. At the invitation-only concert, the ex-Pink Floyd singer/bassist played songs from his old band's classic 1970s albums, as well as four tunes from his new solo album, Is This the Life We Really Want?

Three of the songs from Waters' new record, due out June 2, had never been performed in concert -- "The Last Refugee," "Picture That," and "Smell the Roses."

Waters and his backing band performed in front of a massive high-def screen that featured jaw-dropping live-action and animated videos created to accompany each song. Many of Waters' songs rail against war and political corruption, and some of the video presentations reflected those themes, featuring footage displaying the devastation of war and poverty.

Following an intermission, a series of screens were lowered from the venue's ceiling that stretched across the arena. The screens, along with a pig balloon and smokestack-shaped props, recreated the famous Battersea Power Station in London featured on the Animals album cover.

The concert's most pointed political statement came during a performance of the epic 1977 song "Pigs (Three Different Ones)." A video mercilessly mocked President Donald Trump by showing his face superimposed on a pig, Adolph Hitler and other unflattering images. At the same time, a drone-controlled pig balloon featuring a depiction of Trump with the caption "I won!" on one side flew around the arena. At the end of the song, the massive screen displayed the phrase "F*** Trump!" in giant letters.

Waters' Us Them tour officially gets underway Friday, May 26, in Kansas City, Missouri.

Here's the set list of Waters' rehearsal show:

"Speak to Me"
"Breathe"
"One of These Days"
"Time"
"Breathe (Reprise)"
"Great Gig in the Sky"
"Welcome to the Machine"
"Déjà Vu" (new song)

"Pigs (Three Different Ones)"

ABC/Randy HolmesThis past weekend, artists throughout the music world paid tribute to Chris Cornell, who died last week at the age of 52.

Robert Trujillo played a snippet of Soundgarden's "Black Hole Sun" during Metallica's show in Boston. Additionally, during Metallica's headlining set at the Rock on the Range festival, James Hetfield declared "We forgive you, Chris," after performing "The Unforgiven."

Imagine Dragons honored Cornell at Sunday night's Billboard Music Awards with a speech from frontman Dan Reynolds. "He was a prolific songwriter, a legendary performer, a singer who had a voice for the ages, and a philanthropist, whose Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation helped so many children around the world," Reynolds said. "Even though Chris is gone, his legacy endures."

Pearl Jam's Mike McCready, who played with Cornell in Temple of the Dog, told the Seattle Times, "Chris Cornell painted in song the darkness and beauty of life in Seattle."

Here are a few other musicians who covered Cornell's music in his memory over the weekend:

The Pretty Reckless, who opened for Soundgarden the night Cornell died, covered Audioslave's "Like a Stone."

Incubus and Cage the Elephant teamed up to perform "Black Hole Sun."

Corey Taylor, Bush and Live performed various songs from Cornell's catalog during the Rock on the Range festival, which Soundgarden was scheduled to headline.

Aerosmith held a moment of silence for Cornell at their show in Batumi, Georgia before playing "Dream On."

Kevin Mazur/WireImage; Image Group LA/ABCIf the pulsing bass line featured in pop star Selena Gomez's new single "Bad Liar" sounds familiar, that's because it's taken directly from the influential new-wave group Talking Heads' classic 1977 tune "Psycho Killer." Thanks to the sample, the band's founding members -- singer/guitarist David Byrne, bassist Tina Weymouth and drummer Chris Frantz -- were given partial songwriting credit on "Bad Liar," and now all three musicians have shared their feelings about Gomez's song.

Byrne posted a message on his official Facebook page that reads, "I really like the song...and her performance too."

Frantz, who is married to Weymouth, sent an email to Variety that reads, "So great to hear the legacy of our song, 'Psycho Killer,' and Tina's legendary style of bass playing, quoted so prominently. Was a big surprise and a delight to learn that a new generation is getting introduced to both."

Weymouth added, simply, "It's good to be appreciated."

Gomez co-wrote "Bad Liar" with her frequent collaborators Justin Tranter and Julia Michaels, as well as songwriter/producer Ian Kirkpatrick.

Tranter admitted to Variety, "Selena, Julia and I are all Talking Heads-obsessed."

ABC/Randy HolmesLate Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell will be laid to rest Friday at a private ceremony in Los Angeles, his attorney told Variety on Sunday.

Cornell will be buried at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery.  A public memorial may be be held at some future time, but the attorney said that nothing had been decided on that score yet.

Cornell died Wednesday after a Soundgarden show in Detroit. The Wayne County Medical Examiner's Office has determined that the cause of death was suicide by hanging, but Cornell's widow has suggested that prescription anti-anxiety medication may have contributed to his death.

Readout RecordsEx-Foreigner/King Crimson multi-instrumentalist Ian McDonald latest musical project is Honey West, which has just released its debut album, Bad Old World.

For McDonald, getting involved in the new band was as easy as crossing the street. He tells ABC Radio that he joined Honey West after befriending his New York City neighbor Ted Zurkowski, a Shakespearean actor-turned-singer/songwriter.

"Ted and I used to live literally across the street from one another, and…we got talking and I discovered that Ted had a band," McDonald tells ABC Radio. Ian says he liked the group and Zurkowski's "energy and charisma," but felt they were "a little rough around the edges," something he thought he could help with.

McDonald and Zurkowski soon began co-writing songs, and those tunes make up the bulk of Bad Old World. In contrast to King Crimson's prog-rock and Foreigner's arena-rock sounds, Honey West is inspired by such groups as The Kinks, The Move and Mott the Hoople, with some punk-rock energy thrown in.

The punk influence is most prominent on lead single "Dementia." You can check out an official video for the tune on YouTube.

McDonald produced Bad Old World, while also contributing lead guitars, keyboards, flute, saxophones, clarinet and more. In addition, Ian recruited old friend Steve Holley, formerly of Wings, to play drums on most of the tracks. Longtime Joe Jackson bassist Graham Maby also guests on the record, while McDonald's son, Maxwell, plays bass on three tunes.

Ian tells ABC Radio that Bad Old World was conceived as a cohesive album, "with an arc and a flow, mood changes and key changes."

Honey West will celebrate Bad Old World's released with an intimate show at the New York club Bowery Electric on Wednesday, May 24. Find out more details at HoneyWestMusic.com.

Rich Fury/Getty ImagesU2 paid tribute to the late Chris Cornell, who died this past week of an apparent suicide, during their concert Saturday night at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA.

The band dedicated the Joshua Tree track "Running to Stand Still," which is about drug addiction, to the late Soundgarden frontman, according to Variety.  "For the lion that was Chris Cornell, we send a prayer to his lioness,” said Bono.

In addition, before U2 took the stage, Soundgarden's "Black Hole Sun" was heard over the P.A. system, and the audience sang along and held their smartphones aloft, according to Variety.

In an apparent comment on the fact that so many rock heroes have left us too early, Bono also said, "Here we still are. Here you still are. What a blessing...let's do this again in 2047.”

As Variety notes, U2 is the only band of its stature whose lineup remains intact after more than 35 years.

Credit: Christina PimentelA new memorial honoring the 100 people who died in the tragic fire at a 2003 Great White concert at The Station nightclub in West Warwick, Rhode Island, will be dedicated this Sunday, the Providence Journal reports.

The ceremony, which is free, will take place at 2 p.m. ET at the new Station Fire Memorial Park, located on the former site of the music venue and tavern.

The memorial, which was built with $2 million worth of donations, features plaques honoring each victim, a timeline of the tragedy, angel statues, music-themed sculptures, a memory wall and more. The band Steve Smith and the Nakeds will perform before the ceremony, which will feature appearances by Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo, U.S. Senator Jack Reed, and other officials.

In addition, Gina Russo, a woman who survived the fire and helped lead the campaign to have a memorial built, is expected to read the names of the victims at the event.

People planning to attend the ceremony are being asked to register at EventBrite.com to help local police gauge the turnout for the event.

The fire at The Station took place on February 20, 2003, and was started by sparks from a pyrotechnic display lit by Great White's manager.  The blaze quickly engulfed the venue before many of the attendees could escape.

Among the 100 victims of the blaze was Great White guitarist Ty Longley. About 230 other people were injured. The Station fire is the fourth-deadliest nightclub fire in U.S. history.

You can check out a video shot at the new memorial at YouTube.

Credit: Justin CampbellThe Pretty Reckless opened for Soundgarden at their show in Detroit Wednesday night, and Thursday morning, we got the sad news that frontman Chris Cornell was dead.  Pretty Reckless frontwoman Taylor Momsen has now broken her silence about Cornell's death, writing in an Instagram post that her "heart is broken."

"Still in a state of shock," she writes. "I have no words right now except my heart pours out to his beautiful family and friends."

The band as whole also posted a tribute to Cornell on their Twitter, writing, "Our deepest sympathies to family and new friends we just had the privilege to join for an all too brief moment. Our hearts are with you."

Additionally, they've announced that they are postponing their show scheduled for tonight at the Starland Ballroom in New Jersey.

Momsen is a big fan of both Cornell and Soundgarden: before the tour was even announced, she said that Soundgarden would be the band for which she'd most want to open.

Universal Music GroupWith the 50th anniversary reissue of The Beatles' landmark 1967 album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band arriving next Friday, May 26, the band has offered up a new preview of one of the expanded release's bonus tracks. You can check out a "Take 1" version of the Fab Four's psychedelic classic "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" at the band's official VEVO YouTube channel.

There's banter between the various Beatles at the track's start, as well as Paul McCartney noodling around on the Lowrey organ and George Harrison strumming an acoustic guitar. The song then begins proper, with McCartney's well-known keyboard riff soon joined by John Lennon's vocals. Lennon sings a melody that's slightly different than the final version of the tune. There are no vocals at all on the chorus sections, and no bass and electric guitar appear on the track.

At the end of the song, McCartney plays some off-kilter organ chords as the track breaks down. After the music stops, McCartney is heard apparently giving Lennon a suggestion on how he should sing the line "cellophane flowers of yellow and green."

The 50th anniversary edition of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band will be released May 26 in various configurations and formats, including a Super Deluxe box set featuring a newly remastered version of the album, a mono mix of the record, 34 previously unreleased recordings from the sessions, a making-of documentary, and much more.

ABC/Randy Holmes; ABC/Randy HolmesLike many members of the music community, Billie Joe Armstrong was shocked to hear about the death of Chris Cornell.

"It's really just sad, I don't really know another way to put it," the Green Day frontman told ABC Radio Friday morning, before the band kicked off ABC's Good Morning America Summer Concert Series. "It's shocking."

Armstrong saw Soundgarden live at age 15 when they opened for the Meat Puppets at the Berkeley Square club in California's Bay Area.

"Just hearing his voice," Armstrong remembered. "He made the walls peel."

"It's just really sad," he added. "I feel bad for his family and his friends and his band. I mean, that's all I can really say."

Walk the Moon's Nicholas Petricca also shared his thoughts on Cornell's legacy.

"What an epic staple of the rock n' roll community," Petricca told ABC Radio. "What a definer of what rock n' roll can really be." 

Cornell died late Wednesday night at age 52, of what was officially ruled a suicide.

ABC/Randy HolmesThe Rock on the Range festival has announced it will be holding a "special tribute" to the late Chris Cornell tonight in lieu of Soundgarden's scheduled headlining performance.

"Our hearts are filled with sorrow, but the show must go on," reads a statement from the festival. "Please join us immediately after Live's performance for a special tribute to Chris Cornell."

Thursday night, Rock on the Range held its annual festival kick-off party, which was headlined by Stone Sour. During their set, Corey Taylor's band performed a cover of Soundgarden's "Outshined" in honor of Cornell.

In other Cornell tribute news, Brad Wilk has posted a statement mourning his Audioslave band mate.

"The sadness of you leaving I can not begin to describe here," Wilk writes. "So close to home. I was in awe of your talent. The time I was able to spend with you, which was not enough, I will forever cherish. At your core you were a smart, sweet and gentle soul. This is how I will always remember you. Love you Chris."

Cornell died at age 52 late Wednesday night. His death was officially ruled a suicide, but a joint statement from his widow Vicky and the family's attorney issued Friday contends that the prescription drug Ativan may have played a role in his death.

Courtesy of CatawikiSnippets of hair belonging to all four Beatles members were auctioned off separately recently for a total of more than $10,000, the Catawiki auction site reports. The snippets were cut from Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr in March 1964 while they were filming A Hard Day's Night and were collected by John O'Gorman, who was the head of the movie studio's makeup department.

O'Gorman had the locks of hair put in four separate frames that also included photos of the corresponding Beatles members and gave them to couple he was friends with as a 25th anniversary gift.

McCartney's hair fetched the most money, $2,996, while Harrison's sold for $2,901, Starr's for $2,885, Lennon's for the relatively low price of $1,385."

Denny Hoekstra, a Beatles expert for Catawiki, noted "Each lot contained four to five strands, which means McCartney's hair sold for approximately $600 per strand."

Hoekstra also pointed out, "Nowadays, collecting the hair of famous people is a booming industry. In general, the hair of celebrities will only become more valuable over time, which makes these locks of hair a good investment."

According to experts at Catawiki, the most money ever paid for the hair of a music star was $115,000 for a snippet belonging to Elvis Presley, while the second highest amount was $48,000 for a lock of Lennon's hair.

Sean tSabhasaigh/WireImageTom Morello has shared a statement in which he mourns the death of his Audioslave band mate, Chris Cornell.

"I love you, brother," Morello writes. "Thank you for your friendship and your humor and your intellect and your singular and unmatched talent. It was a great honor to know you as a friend and as a band mate."

"I am devastated and deeply saddened that you are gone dear friend but your unbridled rock power, delicate haunting melodies and the memory of your smile are with us forever," he continues. "Your beautiful voice and beautiful self will always be in my heart. God bless you and your family."

Audioslave, which also featured Morello's Rage Against the Machine band mates Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk, released three albums between 2002 and 2006. The group disbanded in 2007, but they reunited earlier this year to play a protest show on Inauguration Day.
