With plenty of extra cash to throw around, Wayne Rooney has spent plenty on cars, homes and a new hairline. Now, it looks like the Manchester United forward is setting his sights on music memorabilia.
You’d think a Scouser like Rooney would stay true to his Liverpudlian roots and go for John Lennon’s notebook or Ringo Starr’s mustache.
Tony McCarroll, Oasis’ drummer up until 1995, is auctioning off the drum set used in the recording of the band’s multi-platinum “Definitely Maybe.” And apparently, Rooney wants it.
