Hmmm, going by the colour, shape and obviously easily smeared black logo I'd guess that the plectrum you have there is a Dunlop Tortex .[sign in to see URL] seems a bit light for bass so I could be wrong.

Anyway, here's my contribution, liberated from the wall of Chelmsford's Cramphorn Theatre on February 27th of this year and kindly signed by one of the most unique, innovative and skilled acoustic guitarists of all time, Mr Gordon Giltrap, several minutes later.....

 I have a pick that Ritchie Blackmore dropped on the floor of the Normandie Inn after playing an acoustic set there. It's not one of the squared off picks like he uses for his Strat but just a plain, light blue, thin pick.

Re: Some of my memorabilia


A pick like that is worth senimental value only,such as the slide you metnioned getting once,I got one too from the DTC tour. emoticon
Personalised picks have some decent monitary value,I have several of them including one with Roger and five with Steves aoutograph's etched.
When I was outside at the last night of the
HOB Purple shows in Feb,1998,John Popper of the blues Traveler was walking around wearing his all access pass carrying a big velvet case that had been full of harmonica's,my brother and I got the last two,not worth a dime but it was a precious moment,had it not been at a Purple show
it would probably meant alot lees to me though,he also complimented Gillans fabulous harp work from Rosas Cantina,which they happened to add to the show that night.

Re: Some of my memorabilia


I've got various bits and pieces.

One I got a couple of months ago was to get my original 1970 Ten Years After concert posters signed by Alvin Lee. I want them framed, but that will probably cost a fortune! Had to wait for 40 minutes round the back of the old Opera House for him to come out!

I've also got various bits and pieces signed, some personally, and others not. I managed to pick up a Zephyr album signed by the band!

Two very nice pieces you got there Rahul!
Is the Zephyr album "Going Back To Colorado" by any chance?,that happens to be a favorite of mine,which ever album it is,I'd hold onto it if I were you,even if it wasn't signed for you personally,it's a mega rarity indeed. emoticon

 That's all anything is worth to me since I never have any plans to sell anything Blackmore or related. It's all priceless in my accountants book.

 I'm not sure how much they would be worth. I have a Ted Nugent etched pick that he gave me when he sat next to me in the front row at Monage Mountain a couple of summers ago while watching DP's set. Since these guys throw them to the crowd by the thousands each tour, I would imagine they would be worth about the same as a bead of sweat from the same performer.

 John Popper. Christ that goober is annoying as hell on the harp. He's the Widdlevie of harmonicas, yet more sonically disturbing to the brain cells than a Jolene Squeeler Gillan imitation. He's the ultimate in "Nail Factor" through the brain.
Now what'll it be deary? Knitting needle through the ear?
Or red hot poker up the jertsey?
How's bout listening to a John Popper harmonica solo?
