That is a beautiful pic, how lucky that Meat looked up right at that moment and smiled. Like Caryl says, everything I have is precious, but 2 of my most precious things are the CHSIB and WTTN CD's he signed at a signing in Sydney when he was here promoting the CHSIB album. It was the first time I met him so was all the more precious for that.

yep the same one, stood talking to me and my sister and yourself for the many hours before we got in. Did you manage to get on the front row after all that?

I got the suit in a charity auction .. a unique and very special piece of memorabilia to me :) It has original Civil War buttons .. and the waistcoat is the softest wool .. feels almost like cashmere ..

As to "smell" .. it had been drycleaned Pudding, you ass, just as all items from films are before they are disposed of .. and no, Dave .. I'd never put it up for auction :) I also have his Tshirt from Fight Club .. and I wouldn't part with that either :)

I am filled with jealousy

Have you the items "exhibited" in your home, or are they stored? (I have no plans of robbing you, I'm just curios )

The suit hangs in my wardrobe .. it would be one of the things I grabbed in a fire .. and the Tshirt is in a drawer. I've worn the Tshirt a few times .. but now it's far too big :)

I lugged the coat (which has very rich gold brocade trimming and, like the trousers, is very, very heavy .. and I'm not surprised he sat down between takes .. lol) to a M&G because I'd have loved to have Meat try it on again and photograph him in it myself .. but he was feeling poorly that night and sadly didn't do the M&G which was a post-show one.

Ah, I see I wasn't clear ... I meant Pudding's "Pudding Is A W@nker" patch. A collector's item with a huge possible customer base if ever I saw one.

Roll your eyes as much as you like Pud .. the only weird things introduced in this thread are of your making and come from your mind ..

Plus ça change plus c'est la même chose .. except your replies don't really change, the drift just stays the same .. If only everything in life were as reliable as a VW and Pud ..

Back on topic.

If ever I got hold of the film Dead Ringer, that would probably be my dearest item in both senses of the word. The storyline seems really crap, but it has to be the Holy Grail of Meat Loaf films.

That and the queue order changing.

As for my dearest item I agree with Caryl, everything's precious and loved (plus it's all cost a bloody fortune so it's a shame not to like it ) but my dearest things are the things with stories behind them that hold memories...so whilst I enjoy the "regular" merchandise, my favourites are things like plectrums, drum sticks, a poster for my very first show back in '96, that kinda thing...but I'd say my absolute favourites are my M&G photos, all of which are treasured and all hold wondeful memories. I think also they're interesting for me to see, as when I first met Meat I was 13 and I've been lucky enough to meet him lots of times since so they make a time-line of me ageing! (though you'll never see the full time line as the first M&G pic will never appear online )

The meat loaf t-shirt with the everything louder artwork on it...it has all my sins remembered on the back , which i always remember thinking would have been a great title for a steinman song.

My favourite items are photos taken with Meat backstage at Glasgow, a guitar pic he threw into the crowd and a plastic beer bottle he threw into the crowd and I caught it-that's in my special display cabinet!

My DJ promo of the first release of "Stoney & Meatloaf" on the Rare Earth label, my signed copy of the reissue of "Stoney & Meatloaf" and the promo for "Bat Out Of Hell" album and "Paradise" single w/out the play-by-play. Wish we could upload the Stoney tracks but that's against the rules.
