Steve Earle treats his fans with respect!

I went to see Steve Earle and The Dukes on Sunday 25th October in Dublin's historic Olympia Theatre. As always he put on a wonderful show and at the beginning he said that after the show he would be around to say hello to anyone who wanted to say hi. And true to his word he and the rest of The Dukes appeared after the show in the lobby to take photographs, chat and sign items.

It was well organised and Mr.Earle was charming, thoughful and gave people the time to chat and pose for…

Warning! Don't ask Ewan McGregor for an autograph

Here's what Ewan McGregor thinks of Autograph hunters. Just thought I should share this if anyone was thinking of approaching him, I'd think twice!

From the article:

The 43-year-old actor - who played Obi-Wan Kenobi in 'Star Wars Episode I-III' - insists he rarely meets real fans, just people who want to make money from his signature.

Asked how 'Star Wars' fans have responded to him, he told…

RIP Rik Mayall - British comedy legend!

I was really sad to hear of the passing of a true comedy legend Rik Mayall who passed away on June 9th, aged 56.

With his characters Kevin Turvey from the series 'A Kick Up the Eighties' and The Dangerous Brothers they…

When Pens let you down!

You are lucky enough to meet your idols or at least get a friend who works at a venue to ask your heroes to sign something. You've brought along a great item and you're armed with pens/ permanent marker. And when you get the piece back, the damn pen has ceased or bled, basically mucked up that precious signing.

RIP Sid Caesar - A comedy legend!

It's with great sadness that I see comedy legend Sid Caesar has passed away today at the age of 91!  Like any fans of classic comedy Caesar would always bring a smile to your face. Dig out that copy of 'It's a Mad, Mad, Mad ,Mad World' or Mel Brooks 'Silent Movie' and remember the great man!

What is your best thrift Store/ second hand store autograph discovery?

Interested in hearing about any gems that people may have picked up whilst scouring the shelves of second hand stores, thrift shops, markets etc. I picked up this Duff McKagan autobiography this week only discover it was signed for 4 Euro ($5) in my local second hand book shop (Sure it's dedicated, but I don't mind!). And a while back a Neil Gaiman - Anansi Boys 1st edition signed book that I discovered for 1 Euro ($1.35). They weren't advertised as signed, just stuck in with other books and…
