    Okay, how many autographs do you have (if you have any)? Did you get 'em yourself (M), or did you buy them from someone else (B)? I was looking through my "collectibles" today and here's my list:

    Oderus Urungus (GWAR) M
    Jizmak Da Gusha (GWAR) M
    Balsac (GWAR) M
    Slymenstra Hymen (GWAR) M
    Techno Destructo (GWAR) M
    Dave Brockie (DBX, GWAR) M

    Among the "big names" that I just listed, I also have a s***load of autographs from area local bands. My agreement when I buy a band's CD is, "I'll buy it if ya'll will sign it." In all of my previous bands, I was asked for my autograph exactly one time. It was pretty neat!

    I also have autographs from:

    Sam Raimi (director) B
    Bruce Campbell (actor) B
    Brett Favre (NFL QB) M
    Tony Mandarich (ex-NFL tackle) M
    Bryce Paup (ex-NFL linebacker) M
    Chuck Cecil (ex-NFL safety) M
    Bob Skoronski (way, way ex-NFL lineman) M

    How about you?

    I have Dave Mustaine's of Megadeth from Peabody's in Cleveland 1988.

    Danny Gatton's from Sully's in Dearborn MI. RIP

    I asked for and got both, plus some Q & A for over 10 minutes of guitars, gear, and future talk. Cool times.
  3. Type O Negative ticket stub, autographed by Peter Steele. M

    I had a ton of others, but they got lost when I moved. they might still be sitting at my moms house for all I know. I had some of my Star Wars action figures autographed by the people who played them at a Star Wars convention.

    I tried to get my Ichiro rookie card autographed when I was him at the A's vs. Seattle game, but he was a jerk and wouldn't do autographs.

    I got my Barry Zito rookie card autographed, though. ;)
  4. Dick Dale (M)- He autographed my jacket. It's my concert going jacket; I keep ticket stubs in it. I wish I had a picture- this jacket looks like someone killed a couch.
    After his show, he sat on the edge of the stage and invited the audience up. He didn't chat with me too much, but then there were a lot of people. He talked more with the girls (heh, dirty old man) and people who had cool stuff for him to autograph- someone with one of his records on vinyl from way back when, and someone with license plates that said "Dick Dale."

    Ah, Peabody's. I haven't been to the Flats in a while.
