The Entourage star is currently residing in the U.K. while he shoots a TV mini-series about the founder of famed London department store Selfridges, and he is renting a home in the city's Belsize Park district.
He was delighted to see the accommodation had an outside decking area so he installed a drum kit to indulge his love of percussion - but families living nearby were unimpressed with the racket.
Piven tells InStyle magazine, ""I have a little deck, so I got a drum kit for my place. I was so excited to play it, I ran in, dropped my backpack and just jumped on the kit and started playing. Maybe a minute and a half into it, I looked up and all my neighbours were surrounding me. It was a nightmare!""
