It ain’t cheap, babe. I said, no, no, no...it ain’t cheap babe. But this is the guitar that you’re looking for….
It’s a 1963 Martin D-28 acoustic that Bob Dylan played at many concerts in the ‘70s, including his “Rolling Thunder Revue” tour in the mid-70s.
When Heritage Auctions auctions it next month, they’re expecting $300,000 for the ax. The person making good money on it is Larry Cragg, who was Dylan’s guitar…Continue
Here in San Diego, I found out about an interesting charity item. Charitybuzz.com has a listing for a group of three to play golf with Phil Mickelson, at his home course in Rancho Santa Fe. A few days ago, the bid was over $100,000. Oh, in case you think that’s a bit pricey, keep this in mind -- it includes lunch.Continue
Where does inspiration come from? For many musicians a song can be a throw away or nonsensical or have no deep meaning at all. Others, perhaps had come to them in a dream. The song "Yesterday" had been said to have came to Paul McCartney this way and "Across The Universe" made its way cosmically to John Lennon.
However, what I have always found more fascinating, is how love or even lust can drive someone to write the most beautiful songs and perhaps rocks greatest muse was both the…Continue
I think that everyone who collection autographs will be interesting to knowing how some celebrities used their autographs.
Salvador Dali was a super-popular and successful artist, which did not prevent him from loving money dearly. It is rumored that he used his personal checks to sketch drawings to keep people from cashing checks.
Later, when Dali grew old and was no longer able to create works of art, he sat down and wrote his name…Continue

As most of my writing, this is a work in progress. More can and will be added. This is just a start - written in response to a request for a framer. This seems so important yet comes up so little. Maybe many of you know this stuff - maybe many can add to it! It is by no means inclusive.
Before I start - I must mention a point suggested by our own Scott Paul and it is of tremendous importance! DO NOT BUY framed items you can not…Continue
My favorite Steve Sax story has little to do with him. I was in 9th grade, and an older guy I played basketball with and could drive, took us to a San Diego Clippers…Continue

As a cigar lover, and collector of memorabilia, I remember when a bunch of JFK items hit the auction block. There was a humidor that comedic legend Milton Berle had given to him, and it was engraved. It ended up going for half a million dollars.Continue
Even though I slowed down a bit, I've added some quality pieces to my collection.
E Street drummer, Max Weinberg is out doing some solo gigs since Bruce is busy doing his thing on Broadway. Max played just outside of Pittsburgh so I decided to make the hour and a half drive to see and meet Mr. Weinberg. I couldn't pass up the Groupon deal- $19 for…Continue
I've never seen Tom Petty play live. I had a few of his albums, as well as his Greatest Hits CD (love his cover of "Something in the Air"). When I worked at a classic rock radio station in the early 90s, I was ticked when he did an interview show on another station and some of the DJs from our station went to the taping. They all got his new album, Full Moon Fever (with the terrific "Running Down a Dream") autographed. Had I know, I would've been there. Or at least given them a record to get…Continue
