An INXS drumstick that I caught at a show. It's all beat to hell from rimshots and such.

Oh yeah, and I've got tons of signed crap. I thought we were talking about stuff that was owned or used by musicians.

The only thing I own is pretty pitiful. When I saw the Who, the now-infamous Pete Townsend threw a hat he briefly wore into the crowd; I got it at the same time as a bunch of other people, knew I wouldn't win, so I just yanked out the hat-band.

Not like anyone looking at it could tell where I got it.

The other good part of that was when he threw it, I was about 5 people back from the front; since I just grabbed the band and ran, I was able to get in front of all the struggling people and get two away from the front.

I have one of Pete's tambourines that he tossed into the crowd. Big knuckle prints in the middle from where he beat the ***** out of it

I've got a few limited edition Phish posters...some of which trade on eBay for a few hundred bucks.

I've got a copy of Old 97's "Hitchhike to Rhome" signed by Rhett Miller, which probably doesn't mean much to many people, but I really dig it. Good story too...I went to see Old 97's at Rosebud in Pittsburgh a few years ago. While the opening band was playing, my friend and I went to the balcony to have a few drinks and sit down for a while. The guy at the table next to us was scribbling notes in a notebook. I was a bit tipsy, loud and more obnoxious than usual. I kept bugging the guy with the notebook to grab the waitress every time she walked near him. I was unfairly demanding on the guy, and my friend told me so. The guy got up and left the notebook on the table when he got up for a second. Being a drunk idiot, I got up to see what the guy was writing. It was an Old 97's setlist. The guy at the table was of my favorite songwriters, and I didn't even recognize him. When he came back, I was thoroughly embarassed and apologized. He saw that I had just purchased the album...took it, opened it for me, grabbed his marker and signed it. He scratched out "Rhome", wrote "Pittsburgh" in its place, and scribbled a short message. So, now I've got an Old 97's disc that says "Hitchhike to Pittsburgh, and order me another beer. All is forgiven, Rhett."

John Wesley Harding's site just relaunched their message board and had a contest offering a chance to win signed memorabilia if you registered again (or for the first time). Turns out that I won the third (and final) prize - a signed copy of his long OOP video compilation "Pocketful of Miracles." Pretty cool.

I have a few drumsticks that I can't even remember where they are from now...

I have a Dead Milkmen's Soul Rotation T-shirt autographed by the whole band (including little pictures they drew on it).

I also have a foot or so long length of Trent Reznor's mic cable from one of the shows in Madison Square Garden in late '94. He threw the mic into the audience and someone whipped out a knife and cut it into pieces that everone in the immediate area got a bit of.

I keep all my concert ticket stubs--I insert them in the jewel case of the CD of that particular tour.

I have an old daybill of R.E.M. back when Michael Stipe had long, curly hair--that'll tell ya how old that one is. I had it framed.

Partied backstage with Fountains of Wayne last year (my buddy went to HS with the lead singer) Took a few pics. Very strange exerience.

Jimmy Buffett's book Tales From Magaritaville, autographed by JB himself.

I've got a Yngwie Malmsteen pick (he autographed my guitar the same night)
and this poster which is my pride and joy:

It's the Led Zeppelin 1980 Tour Over Europe poster. Mine looks a hell of a lot better than that one and is in near perfect condition.

Only one item in my many years of rock appeciation. A copy of the Black Sabbath: Reunion CD autographed by all four original members. Got to chat with each of them for a very brief moment as well. Even what appeared to be a heavily-sedated Ozzy.
