He was talkative and kind in a Meet & Greet 2014 session. He cordially answered questions like How is John's health, What current singers/musicians do you like, Are you planning to release a video of this tour, etc. Of course he was making good money, so he had to be kind, but I had heard he sometimes bypassed some questions, specially related with excesses, questionable past behaviors, etc. arguing he didn't remember, or answering curt phrases. And that kind of happened with the question Where is Harold? I guess he didn't like that question, answering "He doesn't exist anymore". So sad he said that; in his book there are final words about him (I still have him. He sleeps in an old drum case in my basement.). And I said it's sad cause it is part of funny cool memories he shared with Jeremy and the old band. I guess there should be no regrets.

Don't know about the others but from my perception of the old Ask Stevie section at her old website, I guess she wouldn't be communicative. But that's just a perception.

Since this thread was announcing the auction, Micks RRHOF award sold for $16k which included a magazine with photos of the band with the award. It sold for average estimated worth. I still cant believe he sold it. Regardless of what you think of the Hall of Fame, its an exclusive club. Is Mick the only one that sold his award? I am sure he spent the $16k by now.

My view on Mick is this: Without him, we would have missed out on a lot of great shows and music. And that's the bottom line. I love MIck.

I don't love Mick but you are right. And probably he was behind the reissues with alternate versions that I do love.

I wouldn't sell an award, but he is free to do what he wants.

It's absolutely TRASHY for him to sell his award. But that's what Mick is. TRASH.

My point is that people sell stuff all the time, costumes, autographs, instruments, etc.
I can see selling small awards like maybe "best video" or something. Each year there are big fights on who gets snubbed or inducted into the RRHOF. It was a major honor for the band in 1998. I would think this is the one thing you would want to hold on to like a Grammy. How about donating it to some Hard Rock somewhere. For the price he got for that award is about what he earned during one of his meet and greets. That's pathetic even for him. Would you not want it on your shelf next to your Grammy? He can make $16k meeting fans anytime. But you only get this once in life. If I was part of the hall, I would revoke it from him

How about the stuffed animal she tried to rip out of Christine's hands.
