ITEM: MOTORHEAD signed promo B/W 8″x10″ glossy photo. Before he was churning out fan favorite t-shirt designs for music’s biggest bands he was cutting his teeth in the Tower Records Berkeley art department hand creating large format displays to promote new music releases (“Art Gods” 2103 Documentary). Later he moved on to another legendary music store (right next to Tower) called Leopold’s before making his mark in the music merchandise design world. These autographed photos were all obtained by Mark in person (and most are signed to him) via his many experiences in the music industry. As well as Tower and Leopold’s many autographs were obtained by Mark at these industry only conventions… NAMM (National Association Of Music Merchants), VSDA (Video Software Dealers Association). There are even a few from one of the early Fangoria Weekend Of Horrors Conventions in San Jose, CA Mark’s Tower Records and Leopold’s experiences in his own words: Back in the late eighties, I was working at Tower Records, which at the time Internationally famous, and one of the most visited store by the artists of the time. Upon each visit from traveling musicians/artists, they would sign 8×10 glossies for the staff and a few customers who happened to be there at the right time. I worked at Tower for 3 years, and was lucky enough to meet artists such as Joe Satriani, Barbie Benton, Paula Abdul, Anthrax, Motorhead, Garth Brooks, and the list goes on. Back in the late eighties/early 90’s, I was working at Leopold Records, which at the time Internationally famous for it’s massive collection of Jazz, Soul and Hip Hop records, and one of the most visited store by the artists of the time. I worked at Leopold’s for 5+ years, and was lucky enough to meet artists such as Notorious BIG, Gang Starr, Jungle Brothers, Naughty By Nature, KRS-One, EPMD, Ant Banks, MC Lyte, Blood of Abraham, Total Devastation, Digital Underground, Paris, Queen Latifah, and the list goes on. I’ve decided to let these go from my collection, and fans of these artists will know their value, as most of these artists are either no longer with us, or have risen to stellar heights in their careers. Most burned out quickly, but shone through a brief but powerful time for Hop Hop. They need to be displayed in all their glory, not tucked away in a binder somewhere. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed meeting the folks who signed these to me personally.
