I have in my collection a silver sharpie signed autograph of Ozzy and a Black sharpie signed Randy Rhoads, Diary of a Madman album which i personally had autographed by them. I am looking to get it authenticated in written form i know it's real i handed it to them both personally, does anybody know of any authentication services i can use ? there seems to be a lot of questions about Randy signature as it was signed differently. After an exhaustive search and comparison of all his autographs i have found one example in cursive like mine that i have no doubt proves or would be able to prove it's authenticity to the buyer of it when i go to eventually sell it. almost all of Randy's signatures have very pronounced sweeps in the R's, my signature has a flatter more flowing style being it's in cursive, and the Y and swoop and connecting circle at the end of his signature, in my signature match perfectly with the one other cursive signature specimen i have found. If anybody can help me i would greatly appreciat it and would gladly send photo's of the album with both signatures on it to them if it would help.
I can be reached here or at [email protected]
Much thanks and love on this the 30'th anniversary of diary of a Madman album.
John Michael Gallia,
