I am thankful to so many folks who have emailed me over the years and complimented me on my collection or have enjoyed my website and too have shared their encounters and stories of themselves with their favorite rock bands and artists.

Below, are actually a few accolades in print from those who have enjoyed my collection.

After signing many items of mine in 1994, founding Eagles band member
and original bassist Randy Meisner states,
“You have more items than I have and I was in the band”.


April 1996, AUTOGRAPH COLLECTOR magazine ran an article I submitted concerning reluctant autograph signers, and the difficulties on being an autograph collector.



“Thanks…Good stuff…made me want to put on my Rock and Roll shoes…”

In September 2008, AUTOGRAPH COLLECTOR magazine ran an article that I submitted highlighting my celebrity encounter with Lee Fierro, who played Ms. Kintner in the film “Jaws”. Mrs. Fierro had the memorable scene in where she slaps Roy Scheider (Chief Brody) in grieving the loss of her son, after learning a girl swimmer had previously been killed.


“Yes I’ve checked out your website. Very Impressive!! You’ve pretty much covered it all. A few years ago there was a film producer attempting to do a documentary on KMET. Many of us met on a sound stage and remembered the good times. He was putting together a short presentation to get financing. I guess he never did.

Again, great site!”

“Dear Stephen & Maria,

We enjoyed your page – a great thrill to have caught the soundcheck! We were living in LA at the time and enjoyed seeing the “Knebworth” billboard on Sunset.

Many thanks for sharing – and I hope you get to visit Knebworth again one day… a Led Zep reunion?”
