i got this signed at a show in 1995. mark was signing his full name through the spring of 1996.
tom signed the back of this flyer in may, 1996, backstage. "sorry about the lip" is for my girlfriend at the time, who got her face cut on the barricade during the show. note "tom blink."
if you have any other questions about the band, please do ask. i saw them over 50 times between 1995 and 1999.
Davey, thanks so much for the photos/info. Those are incredible and an awesome story!
Thanks Ryan! What would be a fair price for a fully signed Blink album like that one?
Neat story as part of my research on this project:
So around 2006, Tom had formed the new band "Angels & Airwaves" and their debut CD was titled "We Don't Need To Whisper". I have been looking to find a signed album of this, and have found that this particular piece is forged quite often. Around this time, Tom decided to switch his signature to a "T". The problem, is a few of the other band members had very simple signatures as well. Atom's is a fairly simple "Atom", David Kennedy's was typically "DK". Ryan Sinn's is the only one that really shows much character. Thus due to the simplicity of the sigs, I have found this album is common set of forgeries.
I've seen some that I was skeptical about, so I decided to try and contact the band. I was able to tweet Atom, who thankfully replied to several "signatures" I sent him, and he told me 2 were not his. He also sent me a picture of how his autograph should look. Similarly, I contacted Ryan Sinn who sent me a picture of how his autograph should look, and even explained some common characteristics of it. Incredibly cool to hear from these people directly about their signatures.
Here is an AUTHENTIC 2006 "We Don't Need To Whisper" signed cd obtained via pre-order promo (These seem to be the ones where Tom used "T" a lot):
Here is an AUTHENTIC WDNTW album, signed IP at a Meet & Greet:
Here are 2 FORGERIES (confirmed by 2 members in the band):
Here is as bad of a forgery as you will ever see, this listed by eBay seller signaturezz
Just 100% laughable crap:
