The Two Bruces -- Springsteen and Jenner

My wife’s favorite singer is Bruce Springsteen. She’s from Jersey, what can ya do? She was going to drive up to meet him at the book signing in L.A. She’s glad she didn’t, as many in line didn’t get to meet him. You had to show up and camp out at midnight. I told her that one of the…

A Great Gift and a Great Frustration -- The Springsteen and Spade Edition

These are two topics I’ve brought up before, but different things about those topics.

First, is Bruce Springsteen. I did a blog where I complained about a member here not helping me get his signature when my fiancee and I went to see him in L.A. (he got the Boss, I didn’t; I was on the wrong side of the sports arena when he came in and signed for fans). I liked to think autograph…

Music News -- From Beatles to Bieber

I Hate Autograph Collectors (and that probably includes you)

I've really gotten disillusioned with autograph collectors over the years. Let me explain all my anger in this blog.

Most recently, a few autograph collectors were going to the Bruce Spingsteen concerts in Los Angeles. I wanted to meet up with them, buy 'em lunch, and talk about our best scores and biggest disappointments. It's sharing those stories that makes this website so much fun.
