DROWNING POOL Bus Auction "Hoax" Pulled From EBay

The tour bus in which DROWNING POOL frontman Dave Williams was found dead Wednesday afternoon was never for sale despite the fact that someone claiming to own the bus was attempting to sell it online through auction site eBay on Thursday, August 15th for $650,000, according to the tour bus company, Ziggy Coaches, that leased the bus to the band for the duration of the Ozzfest 2002 trek. Company owner Dale "Ziggy" Seigfried believes it could have been the competition, a disgruntled driver, or some other troublemaker.

"It was a hoax," he told Launch. "I got a [computer] virus with a title 'Bus Purchase.' I don't know if the virus had anything to do with it. The bus is not for sale. I haven't seen the pictures, but our drivers have said it's not even a Ziggy bus."

Seigfried called eBay to get the hoax off the net, and says he feels bad about the whole situation.
