Bill Wyman Says Rolling Stones Used To Fake Each Other's Autographs

(Classic Rock) Former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman says that most of the band used to fake each others' autographs when they were signing stacks of memorabilia.

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
