Not Signing Autographs for Your Employees -- the Steve Harvey/Seinfeld Edition

Steve Harvey is an idiot. I know, that sounds harsh. But let me make my case. First, his screw up at the Miss Universe pageant where he said the wrong name. Now, it’s not like the Oscars with Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway. They were given the wrong envelope. And with Harvey, the reports were…

Guess Who Got to Meet Tom Brady?

I always get a kick out of stories where one celebrity asks another for an autograph. The last blog I wrote dealt with Phil Collins and his bad experience asking Sir Paul McCartney for a signature. This latest story, worked out a lot…

Phil Collins and I Have Something in Common -- Paul McCartney Dissed Us !!

Phil Collins has something in common with Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson. They’re the only three musicians to have sold over 100 million albums as both a solo artist and prominent member of a band.

Collins has a more interesting connection to Paul McCartney. In the 1964 movie “A Hard Day’s Night”....Collins, as a young boy, can be seen as an extra.

He’s…

What Happens When You Die? (to your autographs) -- Don Drysdale Edition

You know what I’ve given a lot of thought to over the years? What happens to my collection of autographs and sports/movie/music memorabilia when I die. Since I only have one kid, I just assumed she’d get it all. The problem is...I…

George Martin Died -- And I Still Can't Forgive Him For 8 Years Ago !!!!

If you’ve ever used the expression “it happens in three’s” regarding celebrity deaths -- you’re an idiot. Unless three people died within an hour, it never even makes sense when people say it. And what qualifies as one of the…

The Rolling Stones and The Doors guitarist -- How I Got the Autograph (of one)

There’s a venue here in San Diego (well, Solana Beach), that has the best concerts. It seats about 600, the acoustics are fabulous for no matter what type of music is being played…and it’s been around since 1974. The amount of bands I’ve seen here is in the triple digits, easy.

Since they get a lot of…

The Cream Rises to the Top -- RIP Jack Bruce

Jack Bruce was the first autograph I got. Sort of. I mean, it was the first autograph I ever got that I asked another person to get for me. I had just started working in radio, and was 20-years-old. An afternoon DJ was going to be interviewing him, and one of my all-time favorite albums was the Cream record “Disraeli Gears.” I didn’t think it would be professional for me to just “show up” at a time I wasn’t working, and bother the talent for a signature; but the DJ was a nice guy and I knew…

A Dream Come True -- I Met Alan Arkin at the San Diego Film Festival

I wrote about the latest San Diego Film Festival for Fox 5 San Diego (feel free to go there and check out my movie reviews). I thought for autograph collectors, I’d shorten it significantly and talk about the autograph aspects of it.

Film festivals are a great place to score autographs, but…

Miracle on Ice...and Famous Hair Without Lice -- Take Your Pick

I am just bored on this Saturday night, so I thought I’d write some random autograph things down and post them.

As a movie critic, I always laugh when there are autograph scenes in movies. Many times, they’re done poorly. The most recent one I saw was in the film “The Identical,” which is a fictional…

The Pros and Cons of Meet-and-Greets

It’s about time I tackle this subject. I must admit, though…I’m doing so with lots of second-hand stories and editorializing. It’s also after midnight (no Clapton reference intended). I’m a little tired and just typing off the top of me head!…

A Director and A Rapper -- Getting Autographs and Getting Punched

I’m sure by now you all heard that rapper/actor Chris Brown is back in trouble with the law. No, he didn’t beat his on again/off again girlfriend Rhianna to a pulp. This time he actually punched a man. What I find odd about this is that he had a bodyguard with him. Isn’t that what you hire those guys for? Let them…

Lennon Letter -- An Auction with Marilyn Monroe and John Lennon Letters

So what are the latest cool items popping up in auction? Well, a foot long, nearly 9 inch in diameter egg. Perfect present for Easter, if it weren’t expected to fetch $45,000 at Christie’s auction house in London. You won’t want to color it in pastels either. It’s a massive fossilized egg that was laid on the island of Madagascar by the extinct elephant bird (imagine one of those messing up your windshield).

These birds resembled ostriches and could grow up to 11 feet high,…

Put on a Happy Face -- Autographs With Drawings

Recently on this site, a woman posted an autograph she got from Paul McCartney with a smiley face drawn on it. She needed to sell it, and we got the most commonly asked question we get  – “Is this autograph authentic?”

The amount of people that go buy some garbage on eBay and only find out later it’s bogus, baffles the mind. Yet it really shouldn’t. I’m guessing 90% of all autograph collectors have been burned at some point. It could’ve been on eBay, or a shop you trusted, an estate…

Perhaps the Most Ever Paid for Love Letters

The Rolling Stones have been talked about a lot lately. I recently posted on this site about the Top 10 list he did on David Letterman (of course, our favorite line was: “Every 10th autograph I sign ‘Doris Goldblatt’.”

On the 12th, The Stones were part of the 12-12-12 concert for victims of Hurricane Sandy.

Now, the story that blows me away is the fact that love letters a young Mick Jagger wrote sold for $301,472 in a Sotheby’s auction. This must be one…
