The Devil made me do it
In your ears
In your ears
the hair the wax
I am relaxed
I hear The Doors
and a thousand covers
It's in your Ears

Blended Mind! -- Wow!!! That has got to be one of the coolest, if not THE coolest PG souvenir to have on hand!
Ayla -- thanks again for the topic and I think the main thing is that whatever we may have -- tee-shirts, mugs, books, etc., -- it's what it means to us that counts, yeah? So, in the end, we all have some great stuff and little bits of PG!

A few years ago I won a bid on a PG autographed drum stick - paid for it and all - then I got an embarrassed email from the seller - he couldn't find it - d'oh but he refunded my money - he had no idea what happened to it
He sold it to a better bidder,
Happened to me as well.

Page and caste -- you should most likely be happy to have not gotten the drumsticks or bid. It is my understanding that PG does not sign instruments, or at least that is what he said when he was asked by a fan at wembley who asked him to sign a guitar. I was present at the time, as we're a few other lunatics.
Of course, perhaps he doesn't consider drum sticks to be an instrument by themselves, so it might have been authentic, but I actually admired him for very politely telling the fan, "I'm sorry, but I don't sign instruments."

Ah well, it was a long time ago, I don't bid on PG stuff anymore

Yes ... lucky in a sense, but I had to pay for it. PG had given this to a charity and it was put up for auction a few years ago and I happened to be the lucky (highest) bidder. I plan to get it framed soon and eventually transfer it to my son(s).
I know for a fact that PG does not want to sign valuable things because he doesn’t want them to be sold on eBay or similar places. He’s currently unwilling to sign anything for that matter, specially items submitted via a friend of his I’m told.
I’m happy to have two of his autographs: one signed “live” (sadly, thorough the windows of a van) and one on an Amnesty tour book I bought online, which seems legit also because it wasn’t advertised in the ad, so what’s the point in faking it?
There are plenty of fake autographs out there BTW, some very clumsily made.

Last year my wife wrote to PG asking him to send me a birthday present...
I got a nice letter from Rachel at realworld explaining how very busy Peter is on a number of projects....
and a signed photo made out to me wishing me all the best for my birthday!

An autographed copy of the "So" album (vinyl)... and a nice thank you letter from Peter. A group of Lunatics pitched in and bought him a copy of Carl Jung's "The Red Book" for his birthday. It's a form letter... but he was touched enough by the gift to take the time to have it done & sign it.
I also have an "I/O Live - 2005" coffee mug and g-string, but I don't think those count... because I created the artwork myself.

Oh, how sweet about the signed card with birthday wishes! That is very sweet!
Rev...I had forgotten about the letter (well, not forgotten it, but because I've yet to go through my things, I only remembered some very obvious things). Yea, I think the letter was very sweet of him. I also have a letter from him when many of us lunies sent him a thank you package during growing up tour. He sent it to deb grant and myself , thanking all of us for the package. It was sweet.
Most recently, got a shout out at one of the shows....the last show in Virginia a few of us, deb grant, Laura (Ela) and I had out together a basket filled with chocolates for the band and crew. We had a stuffed monkey, "Shock" in the basket and Peter had him for the introduction of the song, shock the monkey. He held him up and said thank you for the gift...and then he proceeded with the song. Shock, the monkey, got to sit on the piano throughout the song. Lucky monkey!

Ayla, thanks again for this thread. It's so nice to read how the little things really go a long way...an autograph, a card, a letter....just so very nice to know that pg appreciates his fans and even if he doesn't have time to acknowledge each and every individual, we can tell the kind of man he is just by his way he acts. Cool dude, indeed!
Caste, I know you're correct about the not signing things because pg knows that many times things get auctioned off and sold for lots of money...to people who don't necessarily care a rat's ass about pg or his music. One thing I have learned over the years is that most artists like to personalize the item so that if one was to sell it, it has a little less worth to it...unless of course the buyer has the same name.
I think if I have an opportunity to have go sign anything more for me in the future, I might just ask him to sign it to "Mabel, Henrietta, Harriet, " an unusual name so I know it's mine!
