Rock N Roll Signings This Spring

Not a bad spring on the musical front.  As usual, I had some hits and some misses while trying to add to the collection.  First up was America.  This was by far the fastest and easiest autograph I have ever gotten.  I went right to the hotel after the show and as I was walking in, Dewey and Gerry were walking right behind me.  I asked if they could sign and both happily did.  Wish they could all be that easy.…See More

"I was supposed to see her tonight in Cleveland.  I had 2 lps ready to go.  Hoping for a fast recovery.  They said this show is postponed and will be rescheduled- not cancelled.  That is encouraging.  "

Some In-Person and a Great TTM To Close Out Winter

Posted on April 7, 2017 at 7:00pm 4 Comments

It's been kinda slow in Northeastern Ohio as the concert season slows down in the winter months.  However, there were a few that came to town and a program at the Rock Hall which enabled me to add to the collection.

First, the Rock Hall hosted a movie screening of the documentary Take Me To The River and had a panel discussion with a few musicians, the director and producer after the film was shown.  It is a very good documentary about Stax records that had some young rappers…

A November To Remember

Posted on December 3, 2016 at 2:30pm 6 Comments

It has been a November to remember, indeed.  The month started off by seeing the Alan Parsons Project Live.  A good friend of mine bought a front row ticket and the meet and greet package for Alan.  I believe it was like 90 dollars, which is pretty good considering most meet and…
