Meeting Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher

So, we’ve all talked (or thought) about how horrible it is that autograph dealers capitalize on the death of celebrities. I suppose many will think it’s horrible when I say this. Certainly all my friends did when I talked about…

Another Autograph Lawsuit -- The Security of the Venue Edition

I wrote about the story back when Christina Grimmie of “The Voice” was shot at an Orlando venue after a concert, while she was signing autographs for fans. The latest is that her family is suing the promotional company and venue where she was killed. I find it hard to believe that AEG Live or the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra Plaza Foundation, which owns the venue, will lose this suit. When somebody brings a gun…

Autograph Lawsuits -- The Bill Wyman/Dick Dale Edition

I thought it would be fun to talk about lawsuits involving autographs, because of something I heard on the radio.
