Ending the year on a good note

I enjoy sharing my experiences with this blog.  Hopefully, if these artists come to your town you will have the same success as me or in some cases, better success!  I managed to attend a few more concerts to end the year and ended up getting 4 out of 5.

First of all, Carl Palmer from ELP and Asia played a solo gig in Akron.  After the show, he headed straight to the merch table to sign and meet fans.  He had a variety of merch available including posters, drum heads, drum sticks and…

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…

A Great Start for Rock N Roll Autographs

Rock N Roll tried to heat up a cold January in Cleveland, and it did!  My first show of the year was Rusted Root.  I didn't plan on going to this show, but my friend is a photographer and he got an extra ticket to the show and asked me if I wanted to go.  Can't pass up a free show!  They were great and the entire crowd was dancing in their seats.  Especially when they played their biggest hit "Send me on my way".  The band still has 3 original members and Liz Berlin and the new drummer met…

Cheap Trick- Great band, great guys

I've been a fan of Cheap Trick since about 1982.  I remember hearing some of their popular songs on the radio before that, but I believe that is when I bought Live at Budodan on cassette.  After that, I was hooked.  Then we finally got MTV and watching their live performances and some of their crazy video's made it even better.  I continued to buy their albums:  Dream Police, Next Position Please and One on One.  Finally I got to see them live in 1985.  They opened up for Heart and the next…
