Though I recall a member posting a blog asking about this a while ago, I could not relocate it for my purpose in this discussion.
It can be nice when one stumbles upon a musician's shop (via their website), to see that they are selling their autographs. Stephen Duncan has referred to this as a 'win-win' situation. I figured this could grow as a wee database for listing those musicians who partake in this.
I recently recieved a couple press photos signed in ballpoint from John Mayall's website (http://www.johnmayall.com/merch.html). I am also aware that you can purchase signed CDs from Peter Noone of Herman's Hermits(http://peternoone.com/store/). John 5 ( formerly Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie guitarist) sells various items signed, with an option to dedicate.
So, does anyone else know of this being done by other musicians?
Rascal Flatts presale $16 cd
DJ Fontana, Elvis Presley's drummer has signed photos for $25
Evidently Newbury sent an email to people who'd ordered the Rascal Flatts CD and said it was auto penned. They removed the CD from their website and are offering full refunds for fans who got taken.
I have so little tolerance for egos like that in the music business.
