How do you feel about getting your c.d.'s autographed?


Recommended Posts

I have mixed feelings about this topic.

Last c.d. I got autographed was by JOE BOUCHARD. I think I got it because I was afraid to say no.

I like my c.d.'s without any writing on them. It's also hard to tell a musician that you don't want their autograph without hurting their feelings.

At the same time, my autographed c.d. list is kinda growing (slowly).

Purhaps I should grow a set (of balls) and not care what they think.

I'll usually have them sign the book rather than the CD. I have Mark Slaughter and Kip Winger signatures on the books....

I disagree. I would rather have the artists autograph the front cover and the cd's themselves if possible. I think it is an honor to have the bands sign them. If they want to sign wherever, its their call. It's their music and they should be able to sign the covers. I actually prefer they sign the covers. I think it adds class to the cd's.

 

Just last week, I mailed my cover of Raguel to Sean McDonald and he signed it along with Kevin. He returned it to me. Very cool.

 

I have no intention of selling any of my cd's that are autographed. It is just for my own admiration.

 

I have all of my Dokken albums signed by Don and many by the rest of the band, depending on if they were together or not. I think my son will appreciate all the signed items. Kudos to the bands that take time to sign stuff and go out of their way like Sean of Raquel.

 

To me, I think it not only adds to the cd covers but creates very good memories of the music and bands.

I'll third that one aswell. My most prized ones are my New England signed covers, but I have a fair few others.

 

On a side note - I had a cd turn up this morning by some band called Far..something, the name escapes me, and the guitarist had written shit all over the back cover in gold pen for fucks sake - Talk about ruin it! :D

I love having signed covers.

Some I have got signed myself, and some have come direct from the label or artist.

 

I actually even bought two CDs from two different record stores over the years, only to find them signed on the inner cover (one was a Joe Lynn Turner CD, the other a Poison CD signed by Bret).

 

I think a signature only adds to the artwork, not detract from it.

 

From memory I have about 15 or 16 CD covers signed, and one DVD.

I like having booklets signed... makes for a cool conversation piece. I've had my KISS "Lick It Up" booklet autographed by Vinnie Vincent, my "ALIVE III" booklet autographed by Eric Singer, and the cover of my Raven DESTROY ALL MONSTERS signed by all three Raven members.

 

I also have a cassette of the Ramones MONDO BIZARRO album with all four Ramones' autographs on the J-card... I want that buried with me when I die. :lol:

I would love to have some more signed CDs, but the only ones in my collection are the above mentioned FarCry and Blizzard of Ozz signed by Ozzy. Of those who get signatures on their discs, how did you get them? (Don Dokken or New England would be AWESOME!)

For the record as an "artist" (and I use that term loosely), I understand and take no offense when someone doesn't want their CD signed, in fact I still feel a little weird signing stuff. :unsure:

 

The worst part of it by far is when these stalker types want me to use gold pen and say things like "to my bestest friend J_z (name omitted to protect the handicapped), keep reaching for the stars and someday when you're a big boy maybe you'll be a musician too!" ;)

Your CD is rubbish :D

:( It's difficult to top those Cliff Richard CD's you hold so dear...

 

 

FarCry comes in a close second to 'Wired For Sound', purely on Guitar excellence and the fact Cliff's guitarist uses 6 strings!! ;)

I prefer my Cds without any kind of writing on them......no offense to the musicians but I really don't care who made the music and as a result I don't need their autographs...I just want a nice clean CD.....

 

 

Same here.

 

Also have some CDs that are signed by the artists themselves but they are nowhere near as famous as Kip Winger or Phil Lewis. I'm talking about the most obscure of the obscure indie hard rock bands. They really feel that they've already "made" it when they signed their albums. Nothing wrong with that, of course but still...

Until this thread, I have never heard of people getting the CD itself autographed. I don't think I would like that, besides I cant imagine a situation where the only thing I would have for the artist to sign was a loose CD...

 

I like to get the cover of the paper/booklet insert signed, but I prefer albums covers or even 8-tracks. In a pinch, I use ticket stubs or concert armbands. I also try to get flyers from the show signed by the members of the different bands, sometimes this takes years!

 

When I go to a meet and greet, I bring my own pens including grey or white sharpies for dark items, and metallic paint pens (warning: can be messy!). They are great for clear autographs on almost any surface. I've been to some signings where all they had were ballpoint pens or even pencils! In my experiences, I have never had an artist balk or seem put off when I ask them to use my own pen. Most really like the pen and sometimes I let them keep it :)

 

On another note, I have been to several concerts in the past few years where security would not let men thru the gate with pens! I didn't see them searching purses for them. Anyway, the short stubby magic markers are easy to sneak in in your shoe ;)

    • Edvard Munch's favourite band.
    • Debut album 'Portraits' out May 31.   From Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group:   The band was founded a decade ago under the name ”Alex Mari & The Lovers”, with the aim of writing original material. Meanwhile, in order to create good chemistry between the members, the group began playing together on several live shows, performing cover songs of legendary international artists just like Queen, Toto, Police and AC/DC.   After few line-up changes, the band was finalized with three members: Alex Mari  (Michele Luppi Band, Barock Project, Ophiura, plus guest appearances as studio backing vocalist with Rhapsody of Fire) on vocals, Gianluca Pisana on drums and backing vocals, and Sebastiano Barbirato on guitar and backing vocals. For their debut album, they established their new identity with the name, Night Pleasure Hotel.   The first studio chapter of this very promising trio offers a perfect slice of classic American AOR, reminiscent of Survivor (Bickler era), Foreigner, Prism and Toto. The album features contributions from talented special guest stars –  Michele Luppi (Whitesnake), Luca Zabbini (Barock Project, PFM), Paolo Caridi (Ellefson-Soto, Reb Beach, Geoff Tate, Krell), Gianluca Tagliavini (PFM), Roberto Galli (Michele Luppi’s Heaven, Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire) and Iarin Munari (Red Canzian, Roberto Vecchioni, Paolo Vallesi).   Night Pleasure Hotel are sure to become one of the best newcomers of the current melodic rock scene, thanks to their infectious sound, mixed and mastered by Roberto Priori (Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire, Raintimes, StreetLore).   The release of ”Portraits” is scheduled for May 31, 2024 via Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group. The CD booklet features introductory liner notes written by Samuele Mannini (Melodicrock.it), while cover art and CD graphics have been developed by Aeglos Art (Wheels Of Fire, Platens, StreetLore, Raintimes, Room Experience, Nightblaze).    The first single of the album, ”Just This Once”, will be launched with an official video on March 28, 2024.   Tracklist:   01. Niko 02. Just This Once 03. We Say Goodbye 04. Walking Through The Horizon 05. You And I 06. Sweet Melodies Of Rain 07. Shivers 08. What I Feel 09. Julia  10. Suddenly 11. For You 12. Quella Sera (Bonus Track)   Night Pleasure Hotel is:   Alex Mari: Lead Vocals, Backing Vocals, Bass, Guitar, Keyboards Sebastiano Barbirato: Guitar, Bass, Backing vocals Gianluca Pisana: Drums, Piano, Backing Vocals
    • Queen Shrike = Queensryche 👍
    • and the new Gunship cd maybe not so much AOR but damn good stuff
    • I've enjoyed pretty much all of their output thus far..inc this  
    • First I've heard of these guys.  A bit of a Danny Wilde vibe on vocals for me.  I like it.
    • New song 'Give The Night Away'.    
    • I can't remember the ins and outs of it, but last year he put up a tweet about how anyone who does cover songs is unoriginal and have no talent, and he would rather listen to the original. I have no issue with the second part of his statement as that is all down to personal taste, but for him to call out bands as unoriginal and lacking talent when bands he listens to have done covers is quite laughable. Every time he posts shit like that I reply and he always ignores me as he knows he is chatting shit. He does it with wrestling as well. Called someone out for instulting a woman wrestler, and saying it's unacceptable to insult wrestlers like that. Pointed out he always calls Brock Lesnar a gorilla and he he should practice what he preaches .. ignored again As I say, always has to pretend he knows everything, but always gets caught out.
