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?
Maria Brinks (In This Moment) signed 8x10 photos
Twin Peaks Limited Event Series soundtrack with signed insert by Angelo Badalamenti at Barnes & Noble:
Lets hope they don't go the same way as The National pre-orders!
The official Killers shop has signed copies of the new CD but it is rather ridiculous. It is signed at random by one member of the band. I mean who wants only one autograph for a band release and you don't even know who you are getting?!
Dolly Parton signed items on Pledge music. They're not cheap. https://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/dollyparton
I guess the cd at 75 isn't too bad. She is not a good signer and usually has tight security preventing anyone to get near her!
Jessie Ware signed vinyl and CDs through Record Store UK.
Jessie also has signed preorders on her own store as well.
First 200 preorders of Angel Olsen's new vinyl get a signed poster. (sale just started less than an hour ago)
