Just couple of Rock stories...

At first - please be tolerant to my weaker English - it is not my native language, therefore I am going to make mistakes, but I hope that all is going to be understandable for everyone. :)

Let's start from the very beginning.... I'm mainly fan of rock music (mainly 60s / 70s) and as person born in mid 80s living in central European country where communism finally ended in 1989 - there is still enormous hunger for rock concerts and that's why rock legends are still enormously…

Wall of Shame -- The Autographs We No Longer Like

The Tour de France concluded the other day. I know nothing about the guy that won. I stopped carrying about bike races after Ricky Potter beat me in a race in 4th grade. I do regret all those great baseball cards I ruined attaching them to the spokes, too (but damn did it make a great sound).

This blog isn’t about that, but an event Lance Armstrong took part…

I Understand Much of the Distrust/Confusion Concerning EBay Autographs

I began collecting at Age Eleven & was Blessed early on (and, Later in Life when I Worked For & With many Actors/Actresses from, Shirley Booth to R. Phoenix) some of my Youthful experiences have been shared in Articles/Interviews I contributed to Classic Images, Film Fax, Scarlet Street, etc. There are very few Autographs of Star's who did their most Important bodies of Work between 1925 - 1985 Whose Signatures I Cannot Authenticate (for the most part) either on Sight or Within 25… Continue

Autographed Baseballs -- The All-Star Game Edition

If you’re not a baseball fan but an autograph collector, you have to at least appreciate getting a baseball signed on the sweet spot. That white background, and a ballpoint pen signature…while you smell hot dogs in the background.

The two baseballs I regret not buying are Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays. At a baseball card show, a guy was selling a Mantle ball for $125. I…

My Heart/Robert Plant situation and other stories

Heart is one of my favorite bands.  I’ve seen them a few times in the past, but it has been 20 years since I last saw them so I was excited to see that they were playing at the Hard Rock Rocksino.  I jumped on Ticketmaster as soon as tickets went on sale and I scored 2nd row…

The Confederate Flag -- The Dukes of Hazard Edition

The Confederate flag. I’m not a fan.

I remember 25 years ago, meeting a friends husband from South Carolina. He had one on the back of his Army jacket. We had this debate about it, and I could totally see his points for having pride in it. I didn’t have a dog in the fight, so I didn’t debate the topic with him for that long. I was also younger, and my debate skills…

Summer concerts, autographs and blow-offs

Summer is finally here, and so far it's been great!  I got back from Italy and Spain a few weeks ago, what an experience to see the Colosseum and priceless works of art.  Oh to get a Da Vinci autograph!

Anyway, the day I returned home, Hall and Oates were playing in Akron.  I decided to try for them before the show.  There was one other collector there so the…

Rush -- The Autograph Habits of One of Rocks Strongest Trios

I’m lucky that Rush has never been one of my favorite bands. Otherwise, it would’ve killed me that I never got to get their autographs. Now, don’t get me wrong. And all you Canadians that can’t get enough of them…I’m not saying I dislike them. I own three of their albums. I’ve seen them in concert twice and have a Rush T-shirt (although I only bought it because it was…
