On the back of a bunch of really useful threads, especially the autopen artists, I thought it'd be nice to have in one place a list of poor signatures, lazy autographs or even dots (yes, you Lady Gaga). Please only write down the artist name and if it is a plain letter, ghost signed or just very lazy sig.
Gary Barlow signs everything with just a G - I’d avoid
That was the first that sprang to my mind too!
Lady Gaga - L at best, dot at worst
Corey Taylor - letter - signs his full name at signings though
Maggie Rogers MR (From Amazon UK)
Corey Hart as “CH”
she did full names at Newbury before.
Yes I wish i'd ordered from Newbury they were her full name
Even the personally signed ones from Banquet were just MR.
I’m thinking that’s Maggie’s signature going forward now. With both Now That The Light is Fading and Heard It In A Past Life, she seemed to flip flop between full signatures and the MR initials. The posters she sold online a few years back had perfect full signatures. When I met her (2018), I got a full one. But she seems all in on the abbreviated version now.
Jared Leto and Shaun Ryder did nonsensical numbers and shapes
Oliver Stone did just OS on his Putin Interviews
