Pia Zadora and I got drunk together on a flight from Vail to JFK. I got her autograph then I asked her out at the end of the flight. She responded:

I don't think so!

the only ones I ever asked for was my 1st jazz show, the Great Guitars.
Barney Kessel, Herb Ellis, and Charlie Byrd.

I framed them but have no idea what I did w/them.

I do have some famous jazz musicians autographs already on records I just happened to buy.

The entire NY Rangers 1956 team (when a couple of friends and I played hooky from Jr HS and snuck into Madison Square Garden with our ice skates. We skated on the ice for a good 20 minutes before security ran us off because the Rangers were starting practice. Got the entire team's autographs after their practice. I have no idea where those autographs went.)

I was in the Stone Pony in Asbury Park NJ waiting for Motorhead to come on. In the corner was this guy playing pinball and by the sound the table was lovin his touch. I noticed the bullet belt and the coco puffs on his face- yup It was Lemmy Kilmister

No one had noticed him so I walked over and they had these condoms for sale for a HIV prevention program. Go To Bed With Motorhead was on the little cardboard sleeve around it. I bought one and had him autograph it. Real nice guy but by then everyone noticed and bombarded him and he went backstage.

so a ticket stub, an autographed condom package and a cool story not to mention a killer show in a very small venue- great memories

I spent a few hours with Jim Lovell, Commander of Apollo 13. I think it was in 95. He was in my shop at Disney to sign his book Lost Moon. He told me about the movie coming out soon, directed by Ron Howard and starring Tom Hanks. We spent the whole time chatting about the space program. I bought the book and he signed it for me. Very few people came in the shop that day. Most people didn't realize who it was.

Back in the last century I lived by a local road house in NJ that booked nothing but blues acts and since it was located 50 miles due west of NYC every major act that was playing NYC would either stop here either mid week or Sunday night either before or after the big shows in NYC. We saw everyone over the course of 10 years. They actually had hotel like rooms that the bands could rent for a night or a week. Robert Cray did a 3 night stint one time right before the Strong Persuader record. The 1st night the place was moderately packed, the second was a bit less full and by the 3rd night we were pretty much on first name basis with the band. Albert Collins played one night in the middle of a full on northeaster blizzard. He had one of the longest guitar cords I'd ever seen and he walked out of the bar and played in the middle of the road as the snow was falling down all around him. Wile Dixon spent weeks there one summer and basically became the house band. The Fabulous T-birds played 2 nights before they became an MTV staple , Govt Mule, Alan Holdsworth, Levon Helm, Danny Gatton, Roy Buchanan damn near everyone who toured the circuit in the 80's Ronnie Earl in late 1993 or early '94 with Bruce Katz, Per Hansen, Dave Maxwell, Rod Carrey and Kim Wilson sitting in on harp may have been the greatest show I've ever seen. Ronnie had just gotten sober and he was so in the zone and at that time the Broadcasters were the tightest band in the world, that night was a religious experience. Look up the Ronnie Earl CD Blues Virtuoso Live in Europe. Sorry I'm rambling but they were great times. I had a 1979 Telecaster that I'd bring with me when I could and I'd have the musicians autograph it for me. It's basically a who's who of the blues scene.

I have a few autographs, including a Stan Musial baseball, a Matt Holiday baseball card, Spanky McFarland, and a framed Buddy Guy album that were given to me by my wife or daughter. The last time I remember asking for an autograph was at a Harlem Globetrotters game when I was in grade school. No idea where those went. Since then, I've met people whose names can be fun to drop but, for whatever reason, didn't ask any of them for autographs.

I had a Stan Musial autograph on a bio-type card that he used to hand out to fans. I gave it to a friend who grew up in Stan's era and was a huge fan.

I also have Davy Jones' book which he autographed for me after I spent an afternoon providing security for him. Probably the nicest famous person I ever met, super sweet guy. His wife was really nice as well and had the biggest diamond I've ever seen on her finger.

Somebody gave me a signed Michael Connelly book.

Wifey picked up an autographed snap of George Takei someplace or other.

That's alls I got, but then, I'm not a "seeker".
