No one has ever said a bad word about their Blumo. Unfortunately they came along right at the same time as that Clarksdale thread where we were kinda tearing that Blumo apart ONLY because it was claimed to have been a movie car.


Funny you mention that, I know you'd asked if I was gonna go see the C'Dale car when we were down there two weeks ago... we didn't. But a friend of mine who works at the Ground Zero Blues Club mentioned it to me while I was visiting and passed on the claim, "Apparently it was an actual movie car." Needless to say I enlightened him!

Hey there, ya it was a lot of fun. Should have seen all the camera's and cell phones taking our pictures as we walked into the liquor store. We stayed there for just about 3 hours signing all sorts of things, like Blues Brothers original records, hats, shirts, video movie cassettes, posters and anything else the people brought down to have Dan Sign. They all wanted their pictures with us and the Blues Mobile Too. Made headlines (front page) of several local newspapers. Actually had sore wrists from signing. Don't know how Dan does it, there were literally hundreds of fans in line the whole time, just waiting for Dan's autograph. We have a couple bottles of his various products all signed by him. Won't open them, will keep them. But the best is the signature on the dash of the Blues Mobile for sure. Don't know how to preserve it so it doesn't fade or get rubbed out. Any suggestions? I'll try to take a photo of it and post it on the site in the near future. Thanks to all for such positive comments ... Blues Brothers Too

Dan actually signed up to 3 items but most people did not bring anything. I brought a Blues Brothers poster just in case and he signed it for me.

So Dan will be at Binny's in Bolingbrook this Friday afternoon from 1 until 3. That's around 40 minutes from downtown Chicago. And it looks like that night he'll be at Zanies Comedy Club, 1548 North Wells, Chicago. He'll be doing the vodka thing and then introducing that evenings act, Larry Reeb. Here's a link to the Club and a short vid of Larry Reeb performing at Zanies last year.

Hmmm, I just noticed that Dan will only be signing vodka bottles at this Binny's. Nothing else. I guess they're expecting long lines?

I just picked up an autographed bottle from the Party Source in Newport, KY. They had them locked up in the back, and they were $65 for an autographed one and $40 for a regular bottle, so I went for the autographed one! So this makes the 2nd autographed item I have with Aykroyd's real signature, but I've still never met him...................

That's not a bad price. They go for $50 here in Portland, OR and only a $15 increase for a signed one is a good price. Hope they can confirm its real, his scribble-like autograph is easy to copy.

Thought I'd post a pic of when Dan came to my corner of the world back on September 27th of last year. This is the best photo showing how long of a line formed at the liquor store and this was about two hours into the event, he stayed longer than the expected three. My friend's and I already had our turn in line but we hung around to get Dan to sign my Blumo, which he did. Also is a link to a video of him signing the Blumo, it's short but it's proof! :BB:

Here's a signing from two weeks ago that I don't think was mentioned at the Crystal Head website. They seem to be maintaining their level of mediocrity over there.

The official website is brutal for the appearance schedule. 9 times out of 10 you'll read about Dan's upcoming signings here, before they even list it on the website. And now it looks like the website doesn't even have the 'upcoming schedule' anymore ??

I'd just read the news article about how the 21,000 bottles disappeared. Hell of a drinking song! Would be nice if there'd be visits to the UK, I'd certainly buy one. Bargain for what it is quite frankly... :BB:

So, Dan is coming to Jungle Jims in the Cincinnati area (where I live), but it's a little lame..... and I'm kinda angry that he's being way corporate about this:

http://www.junglejims.com/events/dan_aykroyd.asp

I'm not understanding why you can't bring anything else to sign. I mean, I already have an autographed bottle of Crystal Skull vodka, I don't need another one. I'd like to meet him and have him sign something else, and they have a VIP thing also....... it's a little rediculous.

Thoughts everyone????
