"Here’s the thing- a guy beat him to the hotel and he signed 18 things for him!! Why would he blow off fans at the venue but sign for someone who had 18 things at the hotel?"

"I got Joe Satriani a few times. He was always super nice (horrible looking signature, though). He probably got tired of autograph dealers, as they all do"

Adding A Few In February

February was pretty cold in Ohio but I still managed to add a few. I don't normally collect basketball but when Bobby Knight returned to his high school for a fundraiser for the local YMCA, I couldn't pass it up.  For a donation, you got to hear Bobby tell stories about his high school days as well as things from through out his career.  He stayed after and signed everything for everyone that wanted an autograph.  He really seemed interested in the fans and asked questions while he signed.…See More

New Year- New In-person Experiences

Posted on January 28, 2018 at 5:38am 3 Comments

December was a very slow month for me as I only attended one show (Will Hoge- who is a great singer-songwriter!).  I ended up having hernia surgery (they found six in my stomach) so that slowed me down for a couple of weeks.

January came around and I decided to put into shoot Rick Springfield's concert which was about an hour and a half away from my house.  A little far for me, but I was jonesin' to go to a show.  Rick Springfield is more than "Jessie's Girl,"  he is a great guitarist…

Posted on December 2, 2017 at 8:04am 5 Comments

First up, Christine McVie and Lindsay Buckingham came to town on their duet tour.  It was a fantastic show!  Before the concert, a few of us were waiting out back before they arrived.  Christine arrived first and said that she would sign our stuff inside.  She went in and a security guy came over and…

October Brings A Variety Of Artists To Cleveland

Posted on November 1, 2017 at 7:23pm 4 Comments

October has presented itself with not only being able to add to the music collection, but also sports and even some actors!  I write these blogs to let you know who has been signing and who hasn’t, in case you may want to try when they come into your neck of the woods.  I realize everyone has a different experience, and people might change their moods from day to day.

 

First off, Chris Hillman from the Byrds made…
