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?
So THAT is why Ringo stopped signing for fans. Realized there is more money to be had in selling.
Taylor Swift also has some items on her site for sale including a rare Peter Max painting also signed by him:
Good point about the meet and greet business. For that matter, I know Gary Numan and The B-52's partake in them as well.
Nice. Love STP. Only sig I have from them is Weiland.
I think I've seen it then. Phoenix Hard Rock also have a nice accoustic Dave Matthews Band guitar. They have a solid collection in that place. Better then a couple other Hard Rocks I've been to.
Great information Stipe!
For the Past two years Taylor Swift sold signed cds at her merhandise stand at her concerts for $20.00 a piece. Thats a great deal if you ask me.
Also tons of musicians that play concerts at casino venues do signings after the performances if you buy something from their table. Id say 50% of the casino shows I go to the musicians sign after.
a very nice perk, indeed.
Would love to get Eddie Money. Saw him twice in Laughlin in the late 90's but he didnt sign after either show. Just looked at fan club site and its free to join. I dont see a $40 option. I'd easily pay that to get a signed poster or photo from him. Would go great with my Cardinals/Diamondback stuff. LOL
Email me your address and I will send you one for free I got on a blank cd jacket.
Thanks Roger. That is super nice of you. I just sent my address to you through message. I appreciate that.
