The above unused extra ticket of mine was for the first time I ever saw Cheap Trick in concert, New Year’s Eve at the Fabulous Forum, December 31, 1979.

Eventually, I would see this band over 37 times since. This tour was just the beginning.

ONE OF FAVORITES BANDS IN ALL OF ROCK AND ROLL and one of my favorite bands to collect from. I simply am thrilled to have collected the signed items you see upon this page.

Personally signed by Robin Zander at the Wiens Winery on Friday September 12, 2014, in Temecula, Ca., during a solo concert of “The Robin Zander Band”.

Robin, though a bit reluctant at first thinking that this guitar would end up on Ebay, did agree to autograph my guitar after some convincing (and begging) by myself and seeing my wife’s honest face and pretty smile. Robin Zander continues to show why he is one of R&R’s most generous and friendly autograph signers and why after 40 years he is so very popular with so many fans.

The generosity of the band Cheap Trick as always to their fans was again most evident on Wednesday August 30, 2017 at The Greek Theater in Los Angeles as the boys signed these two above EP’s, thus adding a couple more “completed” items of their memorabilia to my collection.
1979 DREAM POLICE Tour Book signed as best possible (dark cover) by the band.

1989 World Tour Book signed by the entire band.

Signed 8X10 of the classic Dream Police line up of Cheap Trick:

Robin Zander, Bun E. Carlos, Tom Peterson and Rick Nielsen.

ABOVE and BELOW, many different fully signed 8X10’s throughout the bands career.

Personally signed Remo drum head, (though it appears he likes Ludwig) by Bun E. Carlos indicating my favorite Cheap Trick song, “Everything Works If You Let It”.
The ACTUAL Drum used in the Cheap Trick video, “Can’t Stop Falling In Love”,
directly acquired the day of the video from Bun E. Carlos’s drum set.
Drumhead signed by Tom Petterson, Bun E. Carlos, Robin Zander and Rick Nielsen.

I have seen them at the largest of concert hall venues to the smallest of state fairs, Las Vegas poolside/beach parties, parking lot concerts, and at many, many 1000 seat (or less) clubs. They are without a doubt, one of my favorite bands both on the radio, and especially live on stage.

I started collecting thier autographs in about 1988, and have had tremendous success and personal enjoyment. I really admire and support this band. To exactly say when and where everything I have from them was signed, is simply so difficult with any precise accuracy. Unless noted otherwise, your just going to have to take my word that I got thier signatures live and very much directly in person.

 

MY CHEAP TRICK CONCERT COUNT: 37 times in concert, since December 30, 1979.

 

Purchased and personally signed by Robin Zander at the Wiens Winery on Friday September 12, 2014, in Temecula, with proceeds of purchase to charity.

Robin autographed it for my wife and I while in his dressing room after the concert.

Concert used drum sticks by Bun E. Carlos personally sent from him on December 4, 2014.

Please note that one of the two sticks is also autographed by Mr. Carlos.

Three signed copies of probably the band’s most popular and successful album, “Dream Police”.
Just some of over 137 Cheap Trick guitar picks in my collection.

IT PAYS TO HAVE FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES

(or at the very least, to be friendly to those in high places)

I SIMPLY CANNOT EXPRESS ENOUGH GRATITUDE TO MR. BUN E. CARLOS

for the extreme generosity he has shown me, both in person and in sending me the many
“surprise items” through the mail. His generosity equals his playful sense of humor,
and both equal this man’s unbelievably talented playing of his Ludwig Drums.Equal sincere thanks goes to Robin Zander, Tom Peterson and Rick Nielsen for their willingness to both sign autographs “on the streets” and at the many offered pre-concert Meet and Greets that I have attended.
