There are those Rock and Rollers that for all intended purposes, are all but "retired". Christine McVie comes to mind for me, as I have a 1990 Fleetwood Mac tour book that has all 5 of the other band members signatures from that tour, but for over 15 years I have been needing her to complete it. Word has it she is living the quiet retired life in jolly 'ol England. Thus, my tour book remains unsigned by her.
John Deacon of Queen is another on my list of retired musicians.…Continue

Retired Mets pitcher Dwight Gooden was always getting into trouble. I'd list the things he did, but it would be pages and pages long.
I'll give you the latest, though.
The 45-year-old was driving under the influence of drugs with his 5-year-old child in the car.
And what time do you think it was? Well, it was 9:00 a.m., the time when most of us our doing the liquid drugs they serve up at Starbucks.
He was not only on drugs, but…Continue
Robert Culp passed away the other day at the age of 79.
I interviewed Robert in 2008 at the Chiller convention in New Jersey. He was nice to me but showed some signs of confusion in his answers to my questions. I have quite a few signed items he autographed for me there!
Here is one of his OBITS.

Well, I simply can't believe my luck. After receiving the signed copy of my Official Indiana Jones Magazine article f( the magazine article featured my Indiana Jones Collection and an Interview with me ) from Harrison, I wrote him again thanking him for his gift to me. I also asked if I could have an 8x10 signed to me since the Magazine was going to be placed away in my safe. I knew that it was a long-shot and that I was probably asking for too much. However, The Indiana Jones and Autograph…Continue

I was catching up on the TMZs I had recorded on my DVR, and I saw that Jennifer Aniston was signing lots and lots of autographs before going into Lettermans show. This has become a place where lots of people now go to wait for the celebs.
I was in New York and saw hundreds waiting to meet Will Smith (he only signed a couple before going in).
It's smart of them to sign, because the cameras are watching. Aniston was signing photos, DVDs, and any item put in front…Continue
I often see these guys from Las Vegas selling autographs for MULTIPLE times actual value.
Here is another example. My question is, is this Sinatra signature on this letter even Authentic? You be the judge?…Continue
I was interviewed on a radio station last night talking about the death of Corey Haim. The subject went into childhood actors, and I mentioned the VH1 list of 100 Greatest Childhood Stars, and Corey was #26. The list is a compilation of a lot of trainwrecks -- either dead or drug problems, etc.
Anyway, I just now thought about the time the cast of Lost Boys (about 6 months ago), came to town to sign autographs. It wasn't Corey Feldman and Keifer Sutherland, or even Jason…Continue
Are you ready for some nice weather and baseball season yet? I sure am and to prove it I have mailed 100 autograph requests to current players in care of their spring training addresses.…Continue
The actor from comedy horror film The Lost Boys, and other films, Cory Haim, has passed on , as the report says, from an overdose of drugs.
I never got to meet this young man, but he did attend a few genre conventions on the West Coast.
He will will be missed, what a shame.
Here is one of many links for his OBIT.…Continue

I couldn't believe when I was switching channels, and caught the end of The O'Reily Factor, hearing that he sold an autographed poster from him and Glenn Beck, for $4,500. Wow. Seriously, that's probably worth 45 cents. And, I'm not just saying that because I don't agree with their politics.
On TMZ, the show to watch for autograph thingies...the gorgeous Helen Mirren, who was nominated for The Last Station (her performance was great, the movie just average). She was signing…Continue
Steve Koschal Announces: “JFK had an Autopen!”
by Herman Darvick…
Yes indeed you can feel it in the air. Winter is on its way out and spring is upon us. With spring about to be here and summer soon to follow, we get thick into the concert touring season. Increasingly, two of the BEST places that I have found to nab musical autographs is at both Casino's and State or County Fair's. Many artists take part in pre concert or post concert signings. Also, because of the limited size of these events, access to the tour bus area is much more reasonable. My biggest…Continue

Living in San Diego, I hear more Padres news than I care to. But out in Peoria, Arizona for the pre-season, the Padres were greeted by boxing legend Muhammad Ali. Tony Gwynn Jr, who has met some big names, seemed thrilled, saying "It's the first time I've ever been star-struck."
Only a few players got autographs of the living legend.
Across the U.S. in Jacksonville, Florida, Tim Tebow, who created a bit of controversy with his Super Bowl commercial, isn't even expected to go…Continue
Well, the Oscars were given out. And, very few autographs at the big event.
At least, that's what is usually the case.
It was nice to see George Clooney running up and down the chain-link fence and shaking hands and signing a few autographs (he had a Sharpie in his hand).
There were a few other autograph related stories regarding the Oscars, but they completely slip my mind now. Can anyone else add anything?
