KFIX Rock News: Fake Whitesnake Drummer Caught

whitesninGLOUCESTER, Mass. (AP) – This one didn’t pass the sniff test, much less the drumstick test.

Police in Gloucester, Massachusetts say a homeless man tried to pass himself off as the drummer for the rock band Whitesnake.

The Gloucester Times says it didn’t take long for authorities to prove the claim false – so police didn’t even have to ask the guy to play a few licks on the drums.

The man had been asked to leave an apartment building Thursday night when he was found sleeping in the doorway.

The man, who wasn’t identified, was taken to a hospital for evaluation.
