Featured Items

Unless otherwise noted, ALL signatures contained on this website

and in my entire collection were obtained in-person, through

a concert merchandise booth and/or direct from the artists website. 

I do not purchase signatures through any internet vendor OR trade with other collectors.

 

This is probably the most independent and unique assembly   

you will find in a private fan’s collection.

 

 These are some of the luckiest, funnest and even actually most one of a kind of

items found anywhere within my collection.

 

Some of these autographs were not at all expected or planned, while others were at one-time shows,

or very rare encounters that may not ever present themselves again.

I was simply at the right place at the right time, but always prepared for what might happen.

 

 

ENJOY!

 

LP - The Pretenders

The PRETENDERS album: Are these signatures real?

(I did NOT get this album signed in person)

 

I purchased this album from a record rack of LP’s at The Long Beach Record Swap in 1985,

The owner said he had no idea where he picked up this signed album,

but had no real need for it and was happy to “receive” $35 in cash for it.

 

Opinions from so called “experts” are mixed as to the authenticity of these signatures,
but they do admit that if they are real,
there are very, very few signed copies of this album
in existence and almost none come to market.

 

The only signatures I have gotten from any of these band members are the drummer,

Martin Chambers at Fairfax HS on August 27, 1989

on the album and drum head below.

 

(please feel free to compare at the very least his signature, that at the most can only be 10 years apart)

LP - Pretenders - Learning to Crawl

What I do know for sure is, I was at that very famous Pretenders concert at Perkins Palace

on September 3, 1981, when Bruce Springsteen jumped on stage for the encore.

So, authentic or not, this PRETENDERS I album

stays very safe and secure in my collection.

 

 

LP - The Pretenders
All three signatures on the above Appetite For Destruction album were obtained at and on:

 

Steven Adler: October 3, 2015 at “All Things That Rock” convention, Oaks, Pa.
Slash: October 23, 2015: Hollywood Palladium
Duff McKagen: November 3, 2015 El Rey Theater, Los Angeles

 

As you can see, I am still very much in need of Axl Rose and Izzy Stradlin’s signatures on this LP.

If anyone can offer any help in any way of helping me obtain their autograph’s,

I will HIGHLY compensate you for such information or assistance.

on July 24th, 26th, and 27th, 2019 from the amazing Arthur Brown.

 

(Carl Palmer added his signature on the poster, too).

Barney's Beanery Menu - Brian Setzer

One of the earliest autographs I ever obtained was from Brian Setzer on this

Barney’s Beanery Restaurant 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 have 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.

 

These two AC/DC albums were signed at BOOK SOUP in West Hollywood

by guitarist Angus Young.

However, I am not at all able (thus far) to secure the exact date of the signing.

 

There was a book signing event where Angus appeared
with several other artists that evening.

 

(If anyone remembers this event, and when it was, please kindly contact me)

Signed guitar by Joey Molland of Badfinger, at Beatlefest

at the LAX Airport Marriott Hotel October 11, 2014.

He was as such a pleasure to meet and talk with.

 

What a simply gifted and very amazing man.

while in concert at The Orange County Fair on July 16, 2000.

Very sadly, Bruce Gary passed away on August 22, 2006.

 

 

I was never really was a huge fan of The Beach Boys,

at least from an autographing point of view.

 

Dennis Wilson died on December 28, 1983 and I never saw any event or appearance

that I could get access to, to obtain Carl Wilson’s autograph before he died on February 6, 1998.

(having said that, I still feel “God Only Knows” is one of the best songs ever recorded).

 

As well, Mike Love is known to be a bit difficult with signing for requesting fans

so thus, I have all but by-passed this band in adding any such signatures 

to my collection. With that said, I still have obtained these few:

Farm Aid - Keep America Growing
Farm Aid photo - Willie Nelson

 

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).

 

The above photo was was signed in Los Angeles in 1991.

The above Scarecrow album was signed at the

Rockline Studios in Universal City on September 7, 1989.
