I'm not sure whether I agree with this kind of autograph-collecting-as-industry, but if anyone wants to get in touch with Sir George, there you are.
(SASE is a self-addressed, stamped envelope. LOR is letter of request. If you write one, do try to brighten up his day rather than just ask for something - I'm sure he'd appreciate it more.)
Apparently Paul doesn't send out autographs:
Some of the related clips on the right-hand side might be of interest too - Klaus Voormann, Peter Blake etc.]]>
But yeah, lucky doesn't cover it. I need to get a frame for the pic now. Those auctioned items were going for silly amounts of money last night, but a VIP ticket with a dedicated autograph could be had for £125 (still a fair bit, but worth it to be breathing the same air as two living legends).

After the talk there was an auction of various items, including three signed George Martin box sets (which went for £1,000 each), Ringo's signed All Starr snare ...]]>
I guess sales were slow at the full price, and they want to get the numbers up. Either way I'm sure George will have plenty of fascinating things to say, and hopefully not the usual stuff he says in interviews:

Because of the damn weather!! And where did you go in Europe? Not the UK I take it?
But no internet access would have been the end of me!]]>
Hey Alissa - welcome back!]]>
Why don't I live in England!?

(Sorry all for the huge absence on my part... went to Europe for March break! Now I'm positive I don't belong here in Canada since I've seen it first hand... time to move!)
Welcome back, Alissa! No need to apologize... what a great reason to not post. Sounds like you had a blast!]]>
