That is a sick shirt indeed. I bought 2, one to wear and one to collect so I wouldn't have to worry about the washer killing it.

Oh, I should have done this when I saw Maiden on the Dance of Death tour in NYC in January 2004. My shirt has been absolutely destroyed. I've had to "retire" it. It's only coming out to wear to Maiden shows in the future.

Not including signed booklets because I have entirely too many, including complete Edguy and Savatage discographies by the bulk of each band.
Dude Gus G is Ozzy's guitar player. What's Firewind?

I could list all of the crap I have, but my favorite thing is probably my Matt Pike pick, just because he rarely or never throws them out. I didn't even catch it, I just snagged one he dropped on stage. I also got the set list at that show, which has 4 of the new songs on it.

I just happen to have a lot of this sort of stuff because I am right up front at the grand majority of shows I go to and tend to get really into the shows, thus I guess the band members tend to want to throw me stuff. However, many of the setlists were in fact just luck, or me asking a roadie for it after the set was over, because, hey, if they're just gonna throw it out, why not.

But the last part of your statement kinda upsets me. I obviously go to concerts to watch bands too, I'd be retarded if I was spending the kind of money I do just to try to catch things. Everything I've acquired through my years of going to concerts just happens to be stuff that I am proud to have, because of how much the music means to me, and in many cases, was given to me because the band members saw that. It's proof of SOME sort of connection, which is a huge part of why I go to shows in the first place. Interaction is half the fun of live music.
I also completely agree. The majority of the things I've caught have been specifically intended for me for the same exact reason. The guitarist/bassist/drummer look right at me, and throw it or hand it to me.

Oh, I also have a Skeletonwitch setlist from the Amon Amarth tour handed to me by Derrick Nau and I almost caught a pick thrown by Alexi Laiho at the No Fear Energy tour

I'm pretty sure he was being sarcastic, because I made a big deal about that when it happened.

Im gonna agree with Maiden too, its not like im paying just to get plecs and setlists, but they're a nice bonus, and it does add a little excitement to ur story rather than just saying 'I went to the show, they played good, I liked the third song the most'.. And especially if you've cued for a few hours to see the show, its nice to get a cool souvenire, I mean the setlist more than likely wont be the same twice in any given venue, and, specially with bigger bands, the plecs have cool designs on them, plus its the sentimental value, you own a plec one of ur favorite bands used, or held in their hand. Its a nice little connection.

Short list for me, but whatever.

Signed Evisceration Plague Vinyl by all of the members of Cannibal Corpse
Piece of paper signed by Troy, Brann, and Bill of Mastodon
Tootsie Roll thrown by Balsac of Gwar on Halloween
The Red Chord's Fed Through The Teeth Machine Booklet signed by Guy Kozowyk
Mini poster signed by all of the members of Scale The Summit
Scar on my right eyebrow from getting kicked at the face during an Amon Amarth show.

Hopefully there'll be many more in the future.
