Bill Wyman Says Rolling Stones Used To Fake Each Other's Autographs
His suggestion means that thousands of items of highly-prized personalised items could be regarded as technically forged – and the only name fans can be certain over is that of drummer Charlie Watts.
Wyman, who left the band in 1993, tells Rolling Stone: "There's footage of us signing things in dressing rooms. There were stacks and stacks of books, programmes to be signed, and we just used to grab a bunch each and sign everybody's name.
"We all learned to sign each others' signatures – except for Charlie. He wouldn't sign anything. But me, Keith, Mick and Brian could all sign each others' autographs.
"When I see them for sale, I know two of them are not originals. But it was the only way to do it, because you couldn't pass this stuff around. You didn't have time; you were on stage in ten minutes." more on this story
