"At Zombies concerts, they usually sign at the merch booth after. And Colin B and Rod Argent (yes, also the keyboardist of Argent) -- are great signers!"

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Rocks

Having the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in basically your own back yard, has a ton of advantages including meeting artists and getting some autographs.Not only has the Hall been updated with new exhibits, but they also added an interactive exhibit called The Garage where you can actually play real instruments.  They have tutorial videos for those less experienced musicians…See More

Posted on November 20, 2018 at 5:39pm 5 Comments

Two Hall of Famers- Steve Cropper and Dave Mason were touring together and made a stop at a local venue.  Great show and Cropper has great stories.  Both did the merch table after the show.  Mason was pleading with patrons not to ask Steve questions because he wanted to go back to the hotel. (Steve loves to tell stories- he told them anyway!)…
