I used to be a big collector of autographs when I was younger. My faves were probably Laurence Olivier and Kate Bush, along with signed photos I took myself then got signed by Jack Nicklaus and Seve Ballesteros and, of course Bill Shankly

As I keen young off-spinner, I used to write to cricketers. Ted Dexter wrote me a very encouraging three page letter, Geoff Boycott signed a photo and Bob Taylor returned his in very timely fashion, as I recall. I think there might be a Cowdrey (snr) in there too, and possibly a stripling Gower.

Just found out the wasp I killed yesterday was a wasp cop who was too old for this s**t and only one week away from retirement. Feel awful.

Unfortunately, I didn't. Someone I knew had a contact in her team and got me a signed photo 'To Peter etc'.

Here's my favorite from my small autograph collection. Pete Townshend, photographed in New York during the 1982 "Farewell Tour." The photographer sent me this print as a gift. Circa 1988, I mailed it to Pete's office and it found its way back to me, autographed, a few months later. It has hung on my wall ever since.

He looks remarkably healthy in that one (it's not one I've seen before) despite everything he was doing at the time...

Indeed.  The eyes are a giveaway though...

Spend a few years in homeless hostels working with addicts of differing shapes and sizes, Jules...you get to know what different drugs do to people's eyes.

Townshend channelling '50s Spike Milligan, I'd say...

I don't think this photo was ever published. Other photos from the same shoot and from one or both of the Shea Stadium shows, by the same photographer, accompanied stories published in the L.A. or N.Y. Times in 1982. My source was a prominent rock photographer of the era.
