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?
Thank you so much for the heads up on this, Rich. I just got one. I kind of like her, and for deals like that...
It's awesome that you're all giving us the heads up on cool items like this. It makes you wonder why EVERY BAND doesn't do this.
I ordered a Lorde just for the heck of it. Not into too many modern pop people I collect, but at least I know her song Royal.
I think that's a good call. It really does seem like she's been a difficult signer since early 2014, and now she's playing arenas.
Not a straight preorder per se, but it doesn't 100% sit right in the Meet & Greet section (as no meet and greet is included). If you buy a VIP ticket to St. Vincent's upcoming show (priced at $139), included is an autographed poster. She's another one who is something of a difficult signer.
Received the corrected "Waiting on a Song" Dan Auerbach vinyl today. Album jacket autographed as well as inserted lyric poster. Able to keep unsigned album previously sent also.
The download link for the Lorde album is provided in an email sent after placing the order. I managed to download the songs even though I am not in the US. Each song is so huge at around 30MB even though they are supposed to be in MP3 format.
Thanks, Frankie! I´ve got an email "Thank you for your purchase!" but there is no dl-link included...
I think I know why now, mystery solved! When I was ordering, I accidentally chose the location as US instead of ROW even though I used my Singapore address for shipping. That is why I received the download link.
Ah, ok. Thanks!
