Is Your Rolling Stones Autograph Authentic?

Maybe not, reveals former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman in a new Q&A with Rolling Stone, where he claims that he and his bandmates used to forge each other’s signatures.

Time, apparently, was not on the band’s side when it came to the “stacks and stacks of autographed books, [and] programs to be signed,” Wyman reminisces.

“We all learned to sign each other's signatures (laughs). Except for Charlie [Watts]. He wouldn't sign anything. But me, Keith [Richards], Mick [Jagger] and Brian [Jones] all could sign each other's autographs,” Wyman explains to Rolling Stone. “But it was the only way to do it, because you couldn't pass this stuff around. You didn't have time. You were onstage in 10 minutes.”

We can only imagine how much this news will cost fans that have put a price on their supposedly-authentic, autographed Rolling Stones’ memorabilia.

Wyman, who enjoyed his last full show with the Stones in 1990 at London’s Wembley Stadium, has just released Bill Wyman's Scrapbook, a limited-edition coffee-table book loaded with personal photos, rare band imagery and highly personal, hand-written commentary by the former guitarist himself.

A number of prodigious artists, such as Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, and Bob Geldof, have said that the Stones are short-changed without the presence of Wyman. For this reason, they’d be disappointed to hear the man’s response when asked about a possible reunion with the band: “We've said it enough times,” Wyman tells Rolling Stone, “but I realized you cannot return to something from the past after years, because it's not the same. School reunions, old girlfriends, divorces, getting back with the old wife – it doesn't work. It's the same with a band.”

And Wyman will “very conveniently” be on holiday with his family when the Stones return to London’s Hyde Park in July as part of their 50 & Counting anniversary tour.
