Talking Music and Autographs with Larry Tamblyn of The Standells

My favorite ‘60s band is The Doors. They’re closely followed by The Beatles. Yet one thing I’ve found when I became a movie critic 25 years ago was…there’s nothing interesting about asking somebody their favorite movie or favorite band. You always hear the same answers. I like to ask people the…

Warning! Don't ask Ewan McGregor for an autograph

Here's what Ewan McGregor thinks of Autograph hunters. Just thought I should share this if anyone was thinking of approaching him, I'd think twice!

From the article:

Ewan McGregor has branded autograph hunters "parasitical lowlifes".

The 43-year-old actor - who played Obi-Wan Kenobi in 'Star Wars Episode I-III' - insists he rarely meets real fans, just people who want to make money from his signature.

Asked how 'Star Wars' fans have responded to him, he told…

Have Lunch With a TV Star, and a Coffee Table Book That's $5,000

I’ve talked with filmmakers and other movie critics about how sometimes crowd-funding campaigns have changed a lot. It used to be a filmmaker that didn’t have money, could go on Kickstarter or some site like that, and people would donate to help them finance their film. Somewhere along the line, big name…

The Cream Rises to the Top -- RIP Jack Bruce

Jack Bruce was the first autograph I got. Sort of. I mean, it was the first autograph I ever got that I asked another person to get for me. I had just started working in radio, and was 20-years-old. An afternoon DJ was going to be interviewing him, and one of my all-time favorite albums was the Cream record “Disraeli Gears.” I didn’t think it would be professional for me to just “show up” at a time I wasn’t working, and bother the talent for a signature; but the DJ was a nice guy and I knew…

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…

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…
