Really? I'm European, somehow I can access it. It's a nice article and there are many cool pictures, do you think it's OK if I copy and paste everything here?

This is interesting, as it shows Moe with a kit that I've never seen her with before. It appears to be a silver sparkle Slingerland set; quite possibly borrowed for that particular show, unless she owned it briefly between the Gretsch (which was stolen) and the Sonor outfit that Dave Faison set up on a proper stand for her, with a pedal underneath the bass drum.

The Detroit Free Press article has few new details (new to me, at least) of the wedding and events surrounding it, but it includes a new interview with the bride herself, and a number of exceptional photos. I've posted a ZIP file, which includes a PDF of the text and folder with the photos, to:

As always, thank you Phil.
The weirdest bit to me is "The organizers selected two University of Michigan students, Jimmy Silver and Susan Bassett" who backed out, but later "went on to manage the boundary-breaking Iggy and the Stooges, and were married in 1968 in the Fun House, the Stooges’ communal home in Ann Arbor."
