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?
Chris Thile (Nickel Creek/Punch Brothers)....."Thanks for Listening" preorder with signed print...
New book by the Jackson's at Coles books uk signed to bookplate by Marlon tito & jackie £25
Perhaps the strangest offer I've seen from Newbury Comics thus far. Starting tomorrow, if you order Beck's new album, you get a CD booklet signed by . . . MC Hammer. Seriously.
I found this as explanation.... Beck’s new album Colors is out this Friday via Capitol Records. In anticipation of the release, Newbury Comics is selling CD copies of Colors that feature booklets autographed by MC Hammer. To be clear, Hammer was in no way involved in the creation of the album. According to Beck’s representative, Hammer and Beck are fans of each other, and the rapper wanted to sign copies of the new album. “Colors is a great party record,” Hammer said in a statement. So there you have it.
Yes, I received mine. Carefully cut open (leaving wrapper intact) to check for signed item....mine had a signed print inside....very nice signature...
