Tomtom got me a signed poster from one of the Fannies Ireland gigs. It was the one that was used for the postcards in the DVD.

Yes and currently enjoying something of a renaissance on the back of his son's success, it would seem.

Great hair - looks like my mate Kenny and Daniel Tomassi of Roma AC. Cool.

That's the wan. I'm a Samp man (by default), to be honest. But I do like the Roma kit.

Gives a lot of his dough to charidee, I understand. Very impressive when I saw him interviewed, which is more than you can say for my mate Kenny or any of the Strokes.

i used to collect autographs all the time when i was younger. now i don't tend to bother most of the time anymore. among the prized:

-paul simon 'rhythm of the saints' poster signed by paul and most of the international players he had with him on that tour (most didn't speak *ANY* english)
-elvis costello 'live at the el mocambo' cd signed by elvis and steve nieve
-big star '#1 record' lp signed by alex chilton (i didn't get it signed, but it is authentic. i found it along with a sealed promo copy 'radio city' in an ardent folder with heaps of inserts. off topic, but that's probably my most prized record).
-cheap trick 'sex america cheap trick' box set signed by the band as well as dave grohl, who just happened to be there that night.

oooh....and i have a signed copy of metallica's 'ride the lightning' on lp. too bad that one got demolished when my record collection got flooded in the basement a few years ago. i was heartbroken about that one! ;)

I have some things cool.. and some NOT so cool.. :)

Autographs:

Jordan, Joey, Donnie, Danny and Johnathan (NKOTB)
Vanilla Ice
Tim Westwood (when he worked at Capital Radio)
Bobby Vinton (bloke who sang She Wore Blue Velvet - he was a gentleman but after seeing his character on Good fellas it was easy to spot how mafia he was in hindsight..)


Autographed things:

CRR autographed discs and a special one off demo song disc signed by Danny Wylie.
TFC autographed jeans :)

Thats all I can think of for now.. when I was a teenager I was always bunking school hanging around hotels getting stuff signed..

i was given a sealed copy of 'step by step' on lp as a joke on my birthday a few years back. i still have it, and it's still sealed.
should i open it and listen to it???

and Tom Baker's autograph


:?: Could you mean Dr. #4, by chance? I've got his and Dr. #6's, Colin Baker. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I didn't think I had too many, but I guess I have a few.

Mike Singletary - former Chicago Bear
Scottie Pippen & Tony Kukoc - former Chicago Bulls (yeah, they play for those other teams now...pah!)
Kurt Vonnegut - a signed book that was given to me; Timequake, I think
Ron Sexsmith - a postcard someone gave to me
Jimmie Dale Gilmore
Joe Strummer and all the Mescaleros
Marshall Crenshaw
Nick Lowe
Elvis Costello
Paul Westerberg

The biggest prize: an LP copy of Parallel Lines signed by Debbie Harry, Chris Stein, Jimi Destri and Clem Burke

There may be a couple I'm forgetting. I think my copy of Joe Jackson's book was signed, but I can't remember. Terrible....

i remember one time soneone on ebay managed to sell a copy of sloan's 'rhodes jam' 7" on ebay for $150 US! i think there were only about 500 pressed, and less than that sold (i wound up with an extra couple at one point from their manager - minus the embossed cardboard sleeve).

however, as sick as it sounds, i can't get rid that NKOTB album (or any of my albums...for the most part). dunno why. it'll prolly stay sealed for years to come yet, too.

i think the only record i've ever actually sold out of my collection was a copy of led zeppelin IV. i couldn't even stand to look at the bloody spine anymore, let alone ever hear the damned thing again. i think i'd bought it cheap at a market. no love lost on that one. i like the first zep album, but that's really it for the most part. after that, it's a few scattered tracks.
