I’ve heard that Roger Waters has been signing on his current tour. He was making a stop in Columbus two months before his stop in Cleveland. So three of my friends and I made the trek down to C-bus to try and get Pink Floyd’s bassist/singer and songwriter. We arrived early and there were already four people there. Within an hour, the line grew to 50. Another hour went by and there was easily over 150. After talking to some people and overhearing people talk while in…Continue

I had a lot more misses than hits for June. That's the way it goes sometimes.
The month started out with me traveling to Pittsburgh to see U2. The Cleveland show was sold out, but there were plenty of tickets for the Pitt show. (The show was amazing.) I arrived early because I had heard that Bono and The Edge signed before the show. I met up with a nice family and started talking with them. After hours of waiting, the four…Continue

Not a bad spring on the musical front. As usual, I had some hits and some misses while trying to add to the collection.
First up was America. This was by far the fastest and easiest autograph I have ever gotten. I went right to the hotel after the show and as I was walking in, Dewey and Gerry were walking right behind me. I asked if they could sign and both happily did. Wish they could all be that easy.…Continue

It has been a November to remember, indeed. The month started off by seeing the Alan Parsons Project Live. A good friend of mine bought a front row ticket and the meet and greet package for Alan. I believe it was like 90 dollars, which is pretty good considering most meet and greets are $100 and that doesn’t include the ticket! Anyway, he also bought…Continue

It was kind of a June swoon when talking about in-person autographs for me. I had some success but it did not start out well.
The month began with my friend calling me at the last minute saying another photographer friend had an extra ticket to Peter Wolf’s show. So I jumped in my car and headed to Cleveland to see Mr. Woofa Goofa put on an amazing show. He actually signed a copy of “Lights Out” for a fan from the stage. After the show, about 10 people were hanging out trying to…Continue

Adding to the music collection has gone pretty well for the past 6 weeks or so.
In mid-April I got to shoot one of my favorite bands, The Darkness. I actually got to do an email interview with Frankie, the bass player. The last thing in my list of questions was the remark: Feel free to add anything else. To which he responded: A Bottle of Grey Goose Vodka, please.
Well, I figured I would call his bluff and when I shared my interview with his publicist, I told her I would…Continue
