Birdman and John Wayne Gacy

As a movie critic, if a film has scenes with autographs in them, I like to let you guys know. The latest is the movie “Birdman.” It stars Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Emma Stone, and Naomi Watts. I’m sure most of you have seen the scene in which Keaton is walking around New York in his underwear. This…

My week of rock

The concerts keep happening in Northeast Ohio and luckily for me they have taken place at smaller venues.  The first show was last Friday as Eddie Money took the stage for 2 shows at Tangiers in Akron- a small dinner theater place that has brought in some pretty big names over the years.  Between the 2 shows, Eddie was signing items at the merchandise table.  I had brought 2 lp's with me to get signed.  I didn't really want to buy a t-shirt but some of the proceeds went to the Fallen Hero's…

ATTAINING NIRVANA III

Whereas the Beatles and other 1960’s band signed memorabilia are highly collectibles to baby  boomers.Nirvana appeals to a younger generation who was probably an impressionable teenager when the King of Grunge committed suicide in 1994. I am the exception I guess. :)

 Nirvana’s induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year had created a big surge of Nirvana’s signed memorabilia on the internet. As usual, there are many fakes Nirvana signed memorabilia being offer.…

Searching For Kurt Cobain II :)

 

Nirvana induction into the Rock & Rock Hall of Fame earlier this year had created a flood of Nirvana signed memorabilia on the market. Unfortunately most of the items offers were fakes.

Back in August this year a seller on an EBay was offering a signed LP with Kurt Cobain autograph and doodle. Here is a picture of the LP that was offer for sale.…

A Dream Come True -- I Met Alan Arkin at the San Diego Film Festival

I wrote about the latest San Diego Film Festival for Fox 5 San Diego (feel free to go there and check out my movie reviews). I thought for autograph collectors, I’d shorten it significantly and talk about the autograph aspects of it.

Film festivals are a great place to score autographs, but…

Jim Gaffigan -- Great Comedian, Great Actor, Great Autograph Signer!

I’ve always been a fan of stand-up comedians. I guess it all stems from the fact that we hear these surveys that say “More people fear public speaking than death.” And we’ve all had that moment we had to go in front of a crowd and speak, and we got those butterflies. Well, comedians have to do that, with the added…

Bret Michaels

Poison front man and reality TV star, Bret Michaels hit the Hard Rock Casino a few weeks ago.  I have seen Poison a few times in the past- Opening up for David Lee Roth and then headlining with Cinderella and Dokken years later.  Yes, I am a fan of hair metal- grew up with it in the 80's.  If you are looking for a good time and a fun show, Poison is the band for you.  Not the best musicians, but it is fun music.  …

Easy Rider Motorcycle and the Craziest Ride Someone Took to Win a Contest

I found a few interesting items happening this week that I thought I’d write about. Now, as a movie critic I have to say – I love collecting movie memorabilia. Having this in my collection would be great, despite the fact that I thought it was a crappy and overrated movie. It’s the Captain America…

Robin Zander signs for fans and for charity in Temecula

"Everything Works If You Let It"!

As Robin Zander crisscrosses the country this summer on one of his busiest concert schedules ever, both, with "Cheap Trick" and his solo band, "The Robin Zander Band", he and his solo band mates stopped off on Friday September 12th, 2014, for an amazing 20 song set concert featuring a few of his hits, and many of R&R's most classic tunes including the nailing of Led Zeppelin's Dancing Days, at the Wiens Winery in Temecula, Ca.

Cheap Thrills with Cheap Trick

You guys on this website really help me come up with many of the stories I include here. Most of them I forget about until somebody posts about their meeting so-and-so and getting an album signed. It’s always so much more enjoyable to log onto the site and see stories like that, instead of yet another person asking us if the set of Beatles autographs they just bought online for $100 is real.

It was a few months back that somebody talked about Cheap Trick, and I started…

Miracle on Ice...and Famous Hair Without Lice -- Take Your Pick

I am just bored on this Saturday night, so I thought I’d write some random autograph things down and post them.

As a movie critic, I always laugh when there are autograph scenes in movies. Many times, they’re done poorly. The most recent one I saw was in the film “The Identical,” which is a fictional…

I Cannot Tell a Lie! I Wish I Was This Guy (he got a Lincoln autograph cheap!)

I worked at a publication for years with a music writer/photographer that was always a blast to share stories with. He met a number of rock stars (mostly in the punk scene), and had some great photos and autographs. The best autograph in his collection came as a fluke. He was working a part-time job as a…

Sports Shortz -- Muhammad Ali, Babe Ruth, and much, much more

The Oscars have a rule most people don’t know about. If any Oscar winner tries selling their gold statue, or anybody in your family does – the Academy can buy it back for $1. Well, the Olympics have no such rule. That means last year someone got easily one of the coolest pieces of memorabilia ever – Jesse Owens’ gold medals from the 1936 Games. Don’t feel like ya missed out. They went for $1.4 million.…

My summer of rock

I have been collecting sports autographs since about 1996, when the Indians were making their incredible run but not winning the World Series.  I met Omar Visquel and Carlos Baerga after a game and I was hooked.  I then started going to the Football HOF in '99 and have been going ever since.  I have met almost every living football hof'er, most Heisman winners and have gotten their autographs, some free and some I've paid for at shows and the old tent sessions.  (What a deal that was- 10-14…

The Time I Met Robin Williams

I wish I could share a bunch of meetings with Williams, but I really only had one.

It was an interview before one of his stand-up shows in San Diego. There was a crowd of about 20 waiting for him before he went inside that afternoon. He looked sad as he carried a suit over his shoulder. Yet he signed for everyone, and posed for…

Lauren Bacall passes away at the age of 89 today (August 12th, 2014)

Happiness can be found in...Autographs!

A few autograph stories warmed my heart this week. It’s amazing to think that one of them involves an NFL player. It seems when NFL players are mentioned in the news, it’s usually negative.

Here in San Diego, I’ve seen photos of fans getting Charger players autographs at scrimmages. Most cities with…
