Don't know if this works, but the head would probably be easiest ground off with 
a dremel type tool.

Subject: <VV> Brake drum seized onto shoes

I am helping a friend with a car that hasn't moved in 20 years.  We are assuming 
the drums will be stuck onto the shoes.
I believe I saw a tip once about removing the heads from the brake hold down 
pins to allow the drums to be pulled off.  I don't recall whether the pins were 
punched through, drilled out, or ground off.  Anybody have any recommendations?
