Given all the hullabaloo over Steve Perry’s new album announcement, I thought I’d post this classic Journey LP for today’s installment of #autographedalbumaugust. Sadly it is not signed by Steve but I can dream. Over the last 15 years or so, I got it signed by Steve Smith, Neal Schon and Jonathan Cain, so I’ll bide my time and hope to complete it someday.

Next up for Autographed Album August is Dreams So Real. Met them back in college and they signed their album to me. You can spot that one signed it “To Clive—Thanks for the deal.” That was a joke ‘cause they were signed to Arista Records, which was headed back then by legendary music exec Clive Davis. I think they broke up after this one, but they did record a Christmas promo-only 7-inch that you see everywhere for some reason, even though no one knows the song (“Red Lights”—so naturally it was on green vinyl….sigh).

It’s Autographed Album August and here’s another from my college rock days—The Church’s Starfish album, signed by all four members of that lineup. An album of high points (“Under The Milky Way”) and low points (“Hotel Womb”), it’s likely their most popular and certainly my favorite of theirs.

Today for Autographed Album August is Weird Al, signed when I interviewed him for my college newspaper back in 1989. I’ve always enjoyed his “weird” persona, but the quiet, thoughtful guy who I met that day was far cooler—someone I’d just want to be friends with in real life. Glad he’s still doing his thing.

Next for Autographed Album August—Phil Collen, guitarist extroadinaire for Def Leppard, signed my picture disc one day, and in a boss move, did it entirely inside the run out groove so that in theory, the album was still playable (though of course I haven’t since!).

Next for Autographed Album August is Guns N Roses’ first album, signed by Duff. I’ve met him a few times—interviewed him back in the day about the Neurotic Outsiders project and met him at both Book Expo and NAMM. Nice guy.

The first record I ever got signed by a band—The Silencers scribbled on the UK 12” remix of their thumpin’ “Painted Moon” back in 1987. This mix is jaw-dropping, as it features a screaming psychedelic harmonica solo, played through a ton of guitar effects—it’s like Hendrix going off on the harp. Truly amazing stuff.

Next up for Autographed Album August is Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, signed by its recording engineer (and a rock star in his own right), Alan Parsons.
