Filter is a band consisting of Richard Patrick, Brian Liesegang, Jonathan Radtke and Ashley Dzerigian. They had a great start in the 90’s with songs like “Take a Picture” and “Hey Man, Nice Shot” – and were one of those bands I always thought that would be destined for greatness. Sadly, I saw them live in 2016 and they kind of sucked, but when I had a chance to pick up a signed vinyl from the good days, I took it.
Alice Merton is a hot up and coming singer known for songs like “My Roots” and “Lash Out” – I missed her a festival recently and regret it, so when I had a chance to pick up her debut album signed, I jumped at the chance, because I think she’s a fantastic artist.
Jade Bird is one of the best artists i’ve seen recently and absolutely tore up Shaky Knees 2019. Her set was one of the highlights of my Shaky Weekend, and I saw an online preorder for her CD was around, and knowing she’s British, I took the chance, as I think she has a bright career based on her live stuff. Proud to own this one and she’s been a guilty listening pleasure since I’ve seen her.
Tash Sultana was also at Shaky Knees 2019 and had a great set. I’ve never heard of her before Shaky, and I was amazed at the fact a one woman show could rock as much as she did. She reminded me of Carlos Santana in a weird way, and she had some signed merch. After witnessing her set – I had to pick it up.
IDKHOW or I Don’t Know How But They Found Me is another band I saw at Shaky Knees 2017 consisting of Dallon Weekes (Panic at the Disco) and Ryan Seaman (Falling in Reverse) – They had an excellent set and opened the festival with a bang. I think they have a good shot at being a big deal, and I’m proud to of seen them.
JK Woodward is a fantastic artist. His rendition of Wolverine was my first commission ever, and I’m proud to add another awesome X-Men pickup from him, Apocalypse and Archangel.
Bo Hampton is an excellent artist best known for his work on Moon Knight, Batman and so many more amazing works. I had an opportunity to pick up an amazing sketch cover featuring John Carter, Dejah Thoris and Tars Tarkas. I am proud to own this one, and think it’s a fantastic pickup from an amazing artist.
Scott Hanna was the Inker for Marvel’s Annihilation. I had the chance to pick up an original page from the book, which in my opinion is one of the finest Marvel Comics of the last 20 years, and one of the most important. No hesitation from me as it is an amazing addition to my collection, and a heck of a “first page” to own.
Joe Rubinstein is one of the most known Marvel Artists of the 80’s being known for his kickass portrayal of Wolverine. This one is an amazing one to own and a perfect Wolverine art for my collection.
