These are some of the luckiest, funnest and even actually most one of a kind of items found anywhere within my collection.
Many of these encounters were not at all expected or planned, while others were at one time events/shows, or very rare encounters that may not ever present themselves ever again.
Further, each signature is NOT FOUND anywhere else in this website.
One of the earliest autographs I ever obtained was of Brian Setzer on this Barney’s Beanery Restaurants Menu in the late 1980’s, as he was playing pool with some buddies, drinking some beers and simply relaxing and having fun.
I should of taken a picture of his gorgeous white Harley parked just outside on the curb.
Autographed Index card and the Barney’s Beanery newspaper menu, both signed by Brian.
The above three Index Cards were all signed by Patti LaBelle at the Universal Amphitheater the night of THE WHO’s “Tommy” performance on August 24, 1989.
THINK BACK TO THE LATE 1980’S AND EARLY 1990’S.
Think back to a time prior to the internet and prior to the absolute surplus you see now of an artists publicity photos and paparazzi images where obtaining photographs of a celebrity was next to impossible and at times could get quite expensive. So, when the over 50+ page 1985 FARM AID program came out, filled with a ton of celebrity photographs, I bought up several copies and carried these books with me literally everywhere and had them with me constantly, as my “one stop shop” ready to get any page signed as the musician was seen.
Crafty, but very effective for the time. Some of those signed pages are below:
(while others are on the Eagles, Sammy Hagar, Billy Joel and Tom Petty pages).

Individual concert contracts between Cory Wells, Danny Hutton and Chuck Negron (3 Dog Night) and NKR Productions for “The Spirit of America Spectacular” performance Queen Mary, Long Beach, California – Sunday, July 5, 1981. Obtained through a private collector/collection.
Chuck Negron signed Index Card on August 11, 1992, as he entered The Greek Theater for the Ringo Starr All-Star Tour. I would often (and kind of still do) hang around by the entrance with blank index cards, ……………………….just incase.
After obtaining Chuck Negron’s signature on September 14, 2013 at the R&R Autograph Show
I tried on 5 different occasions at 5 different shows to obtain Corey Wells signature on both of these photos (as well as Danny Hutton’s). Corey especially was the rudest, most insulting and ever so adamant about him not wanting to sign any autographs. Danny, upon seeing Chucks signature already upon my photo’s exclaimed, “I don’t sign anything that Chuck has signed”.
Okay, so I get it that there is really bad blood.
However I ask the question, “what does that have to do with the fan’s”?
Can’t these men of kept their financial and personal arguments too themselves and not involve their fans? My family and all families have problems, but we don’t take it out on the waitress who is trying to earn a tip when we go out to dinner!
There are very, very few fully signed photographs of these 3 very talented men. However because of Corey Well’s absolute stubbornness and the fact that he has now passed away, he personally is the reason and is fully to blame that a chance to preserve and share what would of been some very rare and real R&R memorabilia with fans everywhere to have enjoyed , never came in the case of these two photos, to pass.
