As a member of the press, I usually get free tickets to Comic Con and I report on the various autograph things going on. The last two years I haven’t gone.
A few of my friends did report a few autograph things to me. One said if you wanted Hulk Hogan’s autograph and a picture, it would cost you $80. Another friend told me Linda Blair was signing autographs for…Continue
I’m not a country music fan, so when I hear the name Tim McGraw, my first thought is of being a kid and watching his dad Tug McGraw pitch for the Phillies. As a movie critic now, my second thought is of him as an actor (he’s actually not bad). Yet two stories involving McGraw have popped up in the last few weeks.
He might be slapped with a lawsuit, after slapping a fan…Continue
When I was in radio, I was lucky enough to interview some big name musicians. Doing movie reviews, I get to interview some great actors and directors. A few weeks ago, a teenage girl was telling me how much she loved Channing Tatum. I talked about how nice he was when I interviewed him, and her eyes shot out of her head. She grabbed my arm screaming, “You were in the same room…Continue
I have always been a fan of Chris Isaak. Most people know his big hit Wicked Game (how can you forget model Helena Christensen in the video?). He’s had a few songs used in movies (my favorite being “Baby Did a Bad Bad Thing” in Eyes Wide Shut).
A friend and I tried to get his autograph once outside a venue. He shook his head no and walked by us. Well,…Continue
I saw Slash last night at the Hard Rock Rockcino. It was a great show and Miles Kennedy has a great voice. He played a lot of Guns N Roses classics like: Night train, Rocket Queen w/extended solo, Sweet Child O Mine and Paradise City. He also played Slither by Velvet Revolver and a bunch of solo stuff. Of course I brought a few items in case he signed after the show.
When the show was over I went to where the buses park. There were a couple of other guys there but this time there…Continue
I've been a fan of Cheap Trick since about 1982. I remember hearing some of their popular songs on the radio before that, but I believe that is when I bought Live at Budodan on cassette. After that, I was hooked. Then we finally got MTV and watching their live performances and some of their crazy video's made it even better. I continued to buy their albums: Dream Police, Next Position Please and One on One. Finally I got to see them live in 1985. They opened up for Heart and the next…Continue
Even though I review hundreds of space and aviation autographs every month for clients including RR Auction, JSA, SGC, PSA and others, I always enjoy looking at cool items. Every once-in-a-while something comes along that really knocks me out of my chair... and this X-15 multi-signed photo is one of them.
The X-15 set altitude and…Continue
Howard Henderson is a 92-year-old who was 12 when he was given a baseball glove signed by Gehrig.
He had met a number of big name folks, including Ethel Merman and Jimmy Durante. His father Ray was a songwriter, and apparently Gehrig’s wife Eleanor wanted to write songs. The boy went…Continue
I was first made aware of Kenny Wayne Shepherd in the early 90's when people were talking about this young guitar phenom. I bought his first CD a few years later and was pleasantly surprised. In 1998, he opened up for my favorite band Van Halen (yeah it was the tour w/Gary Cherone on vocals). I was in the 7th row on the floor and was blown away at his musical ability and guitar tone. I actually caught one of his guitar pics too! I bought a couple of other CD's over the years but always…Continue
I remember as a kid reading a Sports Illustrated story on Reggie Jackson. The baseball Hall of Famer had an impressive collection of 28 cars (years later I read that his garage burned down and they were destroyed).
We all drool over Jay Leno’s car collection, but for autograph and memorabilia collectors, we sometimes like cars for other reasons. They joked on Seinfeld once when Kramer bought a car that was supposedly owned by Jon Voight.
I remember driving into…Continue
