Indie rockers Guided By Voices' drummer Kevin Fennell has left the band after putting his kit up for sale online.

Last week (begs14Oct13), Fennell put his equipment on auction site ebay.com and now the remaining band members have distanced themselves from him and the sale.

A statement from the band on Facebook.com, reads, "For the record, the band Guided By Voices has nothing to do with the sale of Kevin Fennell's drums. He is acting on his own and is no longer in the band."

Fennel joined the group in 1983 and left in 1996. He reunited with his bandmates in 2010.

The drum set was listed for $55,000 (Gbp36,666) on eBay, but, as of Thursday (24Oct13), no bids have been placed. The auction closes on the same day.
