The Rolling Stones

 

THE ROLLING STONES

are a band that I have not had very much luck in obtaining very many signatures from.

Between their reluctancy to sign and the security that surrounds them, they indeed are the worlds

most (for me at least) difficult band in all of Rock and Roll to have obtained autographs from.

 

What did not help was my lack of any 

real experience back in 1989, by attempting to collect signatures on Brian Jones era albums.

 

Very big mistake on my part.

 

 

I first saw The Rolling Stones in concert in Anaheim on July 24, 1978

and then again on October 9th and 11th, 1981, at The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

   

THOUGH I SAW THE ROLLING STONES IN ANAHEIM ON JULY 24, 1978.

 

 

It really wasn’t until the “Tattoo You” Tour performances of October 9 and 11, 1981 at the Los Angeles Coliseum that I can say I really knew all the songs that they were performing, and walked away feeling that I took in all that was a Rolling Stones concert.

 

I have seen The Rolling Stones in Toronto, San Francisco, San Diego, Anaheim, Pasadena and Los Angeles.

 

I do not have too many items of signed memorabilia by this legendary band and mistakenly tried to get the Brian Jones era albums autographed long after Brian had passed away (huge mistake on my part), but have managed to collect some of the remaining members over the years.

 

It hasn’t been easy to obtain any signatures from this legendary band.

INDEED, One of the hardest bands to collect fully signed items from

(at least for me it has been)

One of the biggest mistakes I made in all my collection happened while collecting these very Rolling Stones signatures. For whatever silly reason, I starting obtaining autographs on Brian Jones era albums which obviously I could never be able to get “completed”.
So now, instead of having probably more completed Rolling Stones items, I have an amount of obtained autographs from The Rolling Stones, scattered between more unfinished items.

Please enjoy the following very rare and very hard to obtain signed albums

by Mick Jagger, Mick Taylor, Ron Wood, Charlie Watts, Keith Richards and Bill Wyman,

and especially the fully signed, “It’s Only Rock and Roll” album.
   
   
   
   

My ONLY fully signed and completed The Rolling Stones album in my collection.

 

   
   
   
   
 

 

A band, that if started properly, I could have had so many more quality

and perhaps even completed band items.

 

However, one of the earliest of obtained signatures in my entire collection.
