Not one I have, but a good story. Day John Lennon died he wrote an autograph to a guitar tech for a guy called Willie Nile, and Willie Nile had lent him some guitar strings, and the tech told John Lennon this, and thinking it was the tech Lennon wrote "Thanks for stringing me along"

Semi-relevant question: supposing you want to write to a famous person, where do you find contact info? N-n-no reason.

In my case, i look to see if they have an official website, and then, if they do, i look to see if there is a 'contact' button which often provides either a form to fill in, or an email address.

A surprising amount of celebs don't actually have an official site, let alone that function, so the trick is tracking down those who do (which is why some of my autographs can be rather random in nature).

Additionally, some celebs may just have a postal address on their contact page, and so the best chance of success there is to send an SAE along with your written request.

back when my dad was signed, Kylie once tried to hit on him while they were in the studio. Glad that didn't go anywhere, sheesh. Also putting Blue and Dannii Minogue above Lewis and Nico? Shameful.

I don't collect autographs but I've gotten some stuff signed before when I've met the person in question.

Image
Roots Manuva - Slime and Reason

Image
Little Dragon - Ritual Union EP

Image
Tricot - THE (signed by the band's current lineup, which is why the former drummer hasn't signed it)

Image
Kate Beaton - Hark! A Vagrant

I can't even remember the last time i asked for an autograph in person, let alone who the celeb actually was.

I used to do it all the time when i was a teenager at race meetings.

I have Darren Shan's autograph from like 6 years ago when I was 12. He did a book signing at my school and I got it, was pretty happy at the time. Brings back fond memories when I look at it, I used to read pretty much all of his books.

That's pretty neat, signed books are not easy to get hold of (i've personally never had the chance to attend a signing).

Since this thread has come back to life also, i may as well add a few more of my own recent successes...

When your online name is also your own initials, they do have a tendency to exist in both worlds.

Idiot.

Thought i'd bring this back again, as i've still been collecting sigs since my last post here, and have had some top quality successes (plus it's better to post the pics here than to end up spamming HDYFRN with them)...
