    Exclamation How's this for being a million miles off track

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...category=45549

    Take a look at this ebay auction.

    This one doesn't have a clue and it has really got my back up

    The Fixx - UK
    Naked Eyes - UK
    ELO - UK
    Talking Heads - Not UK - even though David Byrne is Scottish by birth.

    Anyone else have any tales of facts and ebay auctions being so far off the mark that it's laughable?

    I try! It was funny, because I only started posting on July 9th, and was a Fixxture by that Saturday! Four days!

    People,

    please don't pay a lot of money for Fixx autographs. Just drag your butt to a show, and most of the time they will sign whatever you want.

    I went to a show (which happened to be free) and after the show, they signed just about every cd insert or cassette or album that anyone handed them. Don't pay some internet doof for a Fixx autograph. Go see a great show and take anything you want signed with you. The guys are very accomodating.

    I also remember an ad in a guitar mag back in the 80's selling Fixx songbooks in the back and referring to the boys as "Heavy Metal Maniacs".........!

    Dang those Kurnin and Westoran guys look like Jamie and Cy....

    Octopulse...what do you think maybe those guys that were on the page that you posted could pull a Fixx-ish Beatlemania.....Not the Fixx, But an incredible simulation...

    What a waste. Who needs autographs or photo ops. I'd take some guitar tips or a conversation over a beer. Jamie looks pained.
