PostSubject: The Hard Rock and Heavy Metal Memorabilia Thread   Sat Sep 20, 2014 4:58 pm

I was going through some boxes of stuff and came across my old concert tickets cheers  I like all types of music, but there's always a special place in my heart for metal and rock Twisted Evil

I also found some autographs too. I'll add those later.

Feel free to add your rock and metal memorabilia, vinyl, patches, badges, tee-shirts, whatever! I know there are a few rockers / metal heads on TIG. Love to see what you have and hear a few stories.

I'm a big fan of the old school 70s stuff like Sabbath, Priest, Led Zep and Rainbow - through to 80s NWOBHM acts like Motorhead, Saxon, Tygers of Pan Tang etc - then loved thrash. Don't forget some doom, speed metal, industrial, nu-metal, whatever... there are so many sub genres I'm sure I've missed lots.

If you don't have any stuff to show, feel free to add what bands you like or chuck up a video.  Cool



Here are the tickets, all from the 80s and 90s, Midlands, UK.
Got some 00s ones to add too when I take some more pics.

You've got a great taste in music Paul. There are a few acts there that I have seen & others I wish I had.

And what about those prices? £4.50 to see Metallica. Shocked Happy days! Very Happy

When I get the chance, I'll see what memorabilia I've still got.

I have a good amount of vinyl (mainly Zeppelin related and Billy Squier). I could add more to my Zeppelin memorabilia thread or feel free to move it here. The Guns thread would be a great add here as well. Here's a small sample of albums. Although Peter Grant would not be pleased that these exist!

















The first time I heard Zep playing The Girl I Love and Something Else



All the way from Israel!







What do you want to see? More Zeppelin, Billy Squier, etc. I have a lot of crap in my basement! Laughing

Robert, thanks for adding those lovely Zep items, so very cool :Drool:

Feel free to add whatever memorabilia you like. Would love to see a broad range of metal and rock stuff. I'm hoping some of the guys that posted in the GNR thread will add a few goodies here too!

I would love to have seen Nirvana. I saw Guns N Roses at the Milton Keynes Bowl in May 1993 with Izzy Stradlin (who stood in for his replacement). I also saw the 'New' G N'R ( Rolling Eyes ) at Wembly Arena in 2006 again with Izzy in tow.

James, that's a well impressive list of gigs. I would love to have seen Pearl Jam, Primus, Tricky, Pantera, Tool, Alice in Chains and NIN. You lucky bugger cheers

Great Halloween pic too!


Here are the rest of my ticket stubs. Lemon Jelly and DJ Shadow aren't rock (they delve a bit), but were still awesome nonetheless. Foo Fighters were amazing - half way through their show they 'dropped' a second stage into the centre of the auditorium and played a thirty minute acoustic set on it, then went back to their main stage and played lots of stuff from their early albums.

This is a great thread, I've enjoyed reading everyone's contributions so far.

Jim, that's one hell of a list my friend, i'm very envious and would love to see all those super cool bands  :Drool:  

Paul you too have seen some amazing bands  :awe:

I wish I had made more effort to see more live bands back in the day, as well as in the now. But my money and time just seems to go on other things  Crying or Very sad

but I did manage to dig these old tickets up from the mid nineties.



It looks like we may been at the same gig Steve  Very Happy (depending on which day you went)

the Monsters of Rock was an awesome event and I was lucky enough to see quite a few amazing bands, all at one venue  Smile Pantera were by far my favorite act, but Aerosmith put on a good show as well. The line up consisted of

Main stage:

Aerosmith
Extreme (got booooed off after just a few songs)
Sepultura
Pantera
Therapy?
Pride & Glory

Second Stage:

The Wildhearts
Terrorvision
Skin
Biohazard
Cry of Love
Headswim




I don't have much in the way of vinyl, unfortunately, as I bought all my albums on CD and never really got into collecting vinyl. But I do have a few vintage albums kicking around. Most of these were given to me by my uncle,  my dad also has an awesome vinyl collection too, which I loved listening to as a young teenager. Mainly consisting of Sabbath, Zeppelin, Judas Priest and Deep Purple.

There is Nothing particularly amazing, or rare, amongst this lot, but they might have some value one day.

G'N'R 'Don't Cry' single picture disc




Deep Purple Live in Concert 1970-1972



Deep Purple Greatest Hits '24 Carat Purple', it even has the shrink wrap still on it, as well as the original HMV price sticker.




Pink Floyd - 'Dark Side of the Moon'



David Bowie - 'Diamond Dogs'



This next Album was one of my all time fav's as a kid. I use to love thumbing through the amazing artwork book, while listening to the amazing guitars, complex layers of sound effects and cool drumming on Jeff Wayne's - 'The War Of The Worlds'



its not much I know, but I hope you like my little contribution,
cheers Very Happy

I lost all my ticket stubs but 1 and its one show I will never forget! Thankfully it was taped to a poster I saved....



I've seen Slayer over a dozen of times and each were memorable. This show was for the Seasons in the Abyss tour.
Testament was good, Sepultura thrashed but when the lights came on for the break right before Slayer started is where it got nutz!
Entire rows of chairs on the floor were being destroyed and thrown all over to create a huge proper pit! As soon as Slayer started (South of Heaven I think was the first song) people just jumped down from everywhere to the newly formed pit. Seat covers were pulled off in the upper decks, lit on fire and thrown like frisbees.  Shocked Garbage cans thrown through the entrance windows when the show was over. Great show!  tongue
And most of the Slayer gigs were nearly the same! Twisted Evil

Coolest place I saw Slayer was at CBGBs where they played under the name 'Reign in Blood' for some reason. Me and my friends saw that name on the bill and took a chance. Yup.. it was fucking SLAYER!  affraid What a fucking show!!! CRAZY!

I've seen Megadeth, Sepultura, Fear Factory, Testament, Suicidal Tendencies and a bunch more 80s & 90s thrash and death Gods in the late to early 90s all over the Tri-State area (NY/NJ/CT) and PA and DC. Loved them all!!!!
Man, I miss being you and exchanging elbows and knuckles on the dance floor! Twisted Evil lol!

cheers!
Very Happy

I have some more stubs around here somewhere but here's a couple of shows I've seen. The best concert I've ever witnessed was Billy Squier in 1991. Love the incorrect spelling of his last name as it would happen again years later when I met up with him to get some things signed at a blues festival. I videotaped the show but have never shown the footage publicly. If I recall correctly my friends know Zakk and he asked them to open for him at the defunct Husky Blues café. I was going to plug into the board for taping but didn't.



I could post the below in my Zep memorabilia thread but I'll add them here. I organized the unused Zep tickets for my display. I'm missing three tickets to complete my run of cancelled '77 and '80 tour dates.



I was able to obtain a rare frisbee from Zep's cancelled JFK '77 show. Nothing is known about the frisbee and I only know of about half a dozen other examples. I'm only missing the shirt from the show to complete my run. Sadly I missed out on the shirt and only a couple of examples are known to exist. The shirt will set me back mid four figures if one shows up.



I was surprised to see a piece from my personal collection show up in the new LZ1 deluxe set book. I'm uncredited as the owner. I'll sue! Laughing



For more modern era items I put together laminated passes and tour itinerary books for Robert Plant's Non Stop Go and Manic Nirvana tours.





I also own two original Zep laminates, which are extremely difficult to track down. The '77 laminates are really tough. The '80 tour example is from the final tour they performed in Europe



I could keep going. :I am stupid:

I was there on the Sunday Chris. It was wet & muddy, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I've got the ticket stubs & the programme somewhere (I can't say the same for the woman I took with me though  lol! ).

It was done on a smaller scale, but I also attended a Monsters of Rock gig around 2002 with Alice Cooper (seen 3 times), Thunder, The Quireboys and Dogs D'Amour.

From the top of my head, other bands / artists I've seen include:
Brian May
Transvision Vamp (remember them?) Wendy James wore some VERY skimpy outfits.
Terry Bozzio (former Frank Zappa drummer).
Twisted Sister
Dio
Roger Taylor (at the 'Made In Heaven' album launch, Hammersmith Apollo).
Motorhead
Slade (My first gig in 1981 at the tender age of 10).
Iron Maiden
Hawkwind (never again!)
Blind Melon
Soul Asylum
The Cult
&
Countless local pub bands.

This thread is becoming even better than I hoped. Thanks everyone for your contributions cheers  Gentlemen points all round!


@Chris - Great you got to go to a Donny. Some cool bands there, and awesome you got to see Aerosmith.
Therapy? had this great track called 'Teethgrinder'.
Nice vinyl too. One of the things I wanted to see in this thread was vinyl and just how cool some of the sleeves were with their sometimes unique and inventive designs and often amazing artworks. War of the Worlds is a good example cheers  Gatefold sleeves are some of my favourites!


@Jay - loved the story of your mosh pit days cheers Always bloody noses and black eyes lol sick
I remember in one pit, my mate lost his shoe. At some point it ended up on stage and one of the guitarists picked it up and threw it back. We saw it again later flying through the air a few times. But after the show, my mate couldn't find this shoe anywhere. So he had to go home on the bus with only one shoe Smile WTF happened to that shoe!?!
And congrats that you went to CBGBs - such an iconic venue that was Cool


@Robert - The Zeppelin unused tickets display is something else. And I love that frisbee - what a unique addition cheers  Shame the book didn't give you credit Sad  But nice you got your Peter Green letter featured anyway.


@Steve - I remember Wendy James Very Happy  
Damn I forgot about Maiden though, that's another band I wished I'd seen back then. Would have liked to seen The Cult too.
LOL about Hawkwind, never again... What happened? Or shouldn't we ask Razz

I'm curious about that one, I've seen Hawkwind about 4/5 times(they used to do Liverpool Royal court or Empire every year just before Christmas ) in small venues they were Raw/loud and we had some good nights  cheers
When I finish decorating I'll dig out my concert Stubbs, you guys have seen some great bands :Drool:

@Sems Fir I never had the privilege of seeing Led Zeppelin mate Embarassed But I did see Robert Plant and Jimmy Page at Knebworh (1990 I think ) a great concert cheers

Next up from me are some autographs.







Along with two of my mates, I saw Metallica for the first time on Sept 20th, 1986. on their Damage Inc. tour. We met the band backstage and chatted, they signed autographs for us and seemed genuinly happy to be chatting. I told Cliff that his bass solo was really cool, he took my hand and shook it and said thanks man.



A week later, September 27th, we heard on the radio that Cliff Burton had died in the tour bus accident in Sweden. Fuck.
Me and my mates just couldn't believe it as we'd only seen the band the week before and got to meet the man.
My signed tour programme is one of my best-loved collectables.  






My mates got their programmes signed too, and one of them got his bootleg poster signed (which he bought outside for a quid I think Smile ). Kirk Hammett looked at the poster and was like Wtf is this dodgy poster? But the whole band signed it anyway.


I also got a piece of paper signed as well as my programme. Don't ask me why Lars Ulrich signed it 'Seattle' though. alien







Anthrax




I managed to get most of the Anthrax sigs in my programme. But way after the gig we went to a chippy and we saw Joey Belladonna outside and Alex Skolnick (of Testament). So I quickly nabbed their sigs on a pice of paper Smile Joey Belladonna was really cool and he was sharing our chips. He was wrapped up lke an Eskimo because of the freezing weather and said he didn't want to catch a cold.









Uriah Heep



These guys were all real gents and happy to chat and sign stuff.
I was chuffed to meet Lee Kerslake as I loved his drums when he played for Ozzy. John Sinclair was also an ex member of Ozzy's touring band. Was also cool to meet Trevor Bolder who played bass in Bowie's Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars band.







Dio

Again, perfect gents and happy to chat and sign. Was so chuffed to meet RJD!
Jimmy Bain (bassist) was pissed as a fart and making us laugh. He told us to not bother catching a bus home but instead go and nick a car. Then he was going on about his days as a youth in Ireland.
Was also chuffed to meet drummer Vinnie Appice (ex Black Sabbath and brother of Carmine Appice).





Also got the sig (on the back of a Helloween flyer) of Glenn Evans from Nuclear Assault.




and lastly, Ozzy, but I didn't meet him tongue  This was free with a single (No More Tears I think).



In later years when I was playing gigs, recording and rehearsing at different studios, I managed to say some very quick hellos to Geezer Butler (Sabbath), various members of Napalm Death, various of UB40, various Editors, various Sweet, various The Hollies, John Taylor of Duran Duran, Pato Banton, and Dave Hill from Slade, and Roy wood (ELO / Wizzard). Nearly all of them Midlands connected. cheers

I'd have to dig through my items to post various things.  I was too young to see Zeppelin.  I was only five when they last toured in the United States.  For me, they were, are, and will always be, the ultimate rock band.  Very Happy   Here's a couple of Billy Squier items.  Billy's first band was called Piper.  When Eddie Kramer put some of his stuff for sale I was fortunate enough to obtain the original acetates to one of Piper's albums.  You can read about them here:
http://www.behindthetoys.com/images/archive/rob/Billy%20Squier.htm

While I have promo albums and various items I also have this RIAA award for Billy's Emotions in Motion release:

When I met Billy several years ago I had him sign a couple of things.  Here's the shirt he signed with his last name misspelled.  Sorry the image is blurry.  The image was taken with an old camera a long time ago.




I also recently became the copyright owner of some original pictures taken of Billy in concert all those years ago in Texas.  I can post the following images as I own the copyright.  Don't steal my pictures or I'll sue!  Laughing



If I have some time I can take pictures of various things.  I have Led Zeppelin items pictured on various sites.  Perhaps I'll add them here.

Awesome stuff guys cheers

Anthrax has always been one of my favorite bands so I really like the autographs and the Belladonna story Paul Cool


I really don't have much in the way of memorabilia other then lots of foggy memories smoke

I am also too nervous to approach my "heroes" and ask for signatures Embarassed


The 1st time I saw Fishbone live , their singer Angelo was signing copies of a book he wrote and I was too embarrassed to approach him . So I promised myself that if I ever saw Fishbone again I wouldn't pass up the chance if I had one .

Years later I saw them again and bought this VHS tape and actually talked to Angelo for a few minutes ...




These next 2 were given to me by a very good friend years ago . He has passed away since then so they are even more special to me now ...


Very early Flotsam and Jetsam cassette tape that predates there 1st cd release - I believe it was what they sold to promote themselves at their early concerts  :






And this Infectious Grooves cassette that was signed by most of the guys in the band (including Robert Trujillo What a Face )






I also bought these Cornbugs dvds a few years ago and they are signed by Bill Mosely ...





of course you can by Cornbugs shit on ebay from Bill Mosely himself and he signs everything he sells lol!


compared to the awesome stuff you guys have shown I know it's not much of a collection lol!

Nice one, James. I like the cassettes. Still have a soft spot for them and will dig a few out soon.


Next up, Kerrang!


Back in the 80s in the UK - before internet - the best ways to get your rock and metal news was via Kerrang! magazine and radio shows like Friday Night Rock Show hosted by Tommy Vance.

I bought Kerrang! regularly, but sold or swapped all my issues some years back.

I did keep issue 100, though, from 1985. The US launch issue. Below are a few photos. There are some cool bands that I'd forgotten all about.





Congrats from Ozzy...







Capitol records...







Music For Nations...







I wonder if Vertigo records would get away with an ad like this now thinking







Kerrang! also ran a regular feature called 'Lady Killers'






Also found my badge that was a freebie from an earlier issue,






And some Kerrang! condoms lol!

These were among some freebies given when a band I played with in the UK recorded an acoustic set for Kerrang! Radio. I used to love driving to and from work listening to their shows. Their studios at the time were located in Birmingham. I believe they're now in London.





And lastly, some of the magazine writers collaborated on a book that was published in 1983.

In the pre-internet days, a book like this, covering the history of 100s of bands, was like gold (to the spotty headbangers like me anyway tongue ).

The cover features Mick Box of Uriah Heep.

Great stuff Paul :clap:

I actually bought many a issue of Kerrang back in the day cheers


This next project I will show requires some background info ... so bare with me lol!


I have only worn T-shirts for as long as I can remember ... they're comfy and I don't like collars Razz

95% of the shirts I wear are band related - I have always felt that , if I am going to be "free advertisement" , I will only promote bands that I really like  Wink

I started saving my T-shirts in High School and over the years I built up quite the collection (at one point I had 4 trashbags full affraid )

I generally wear the shirts until they start to get so worn out that I have to "retire" them and then add to the collection bag .

I never knew what exactly I was saving them for but a few years ago I finally came up with a plan Twisted Evil

I started by cutting the shirts apart and only saved the good (and salvageable) designs / printing that I wanted to use ...

I bought some fabric that had iron on sticky stuff on one side - then carefully laid out the designs with the shirt pieces and then used a hot iron to attach them in place . In places where pieces overlapped I would have to use fabric glue .

Once everything was attached to each panel of iron on fabric , my wife would use her sewing machine to go around each and every piece separately to make sure they would all stay in place permanently . She had just gotten the sewing machine so her skills were a little rough but I liked the unevenness for this particular project What a Face

I wanted to try and represent a musical history of all the bands that I have loved over the years but didn't have T-Shirts for everyone . So I started buying patches for the missing artists and then Ironed and sewed them on as well .

The plan is to eventually attach all the separate panels together and make a large quilt or tapestry but right now each panel is about 2o inches tall and 48 inches wide ...

PANEL # 1










PANEL # 2










PANEL # 3











PANEL # 4











I'm not real sure how "metal" my quilting project is but the wife says when you use random cut pieces like our project , instead of perfect cut squares , it is called a "Crazy Quilt" ...  so if its "Crazy" hopefully that helps it sound more METAL Razz
