Default Greetings Comrades.....I was thinking....

I've been looking at ways of raising the budget for new projects and reading up on the 'crowdsourcing'
initiatives which seem to be very popular on the internet. I was thinking a very unique artifact / momento for any collector of a bands work would be a copy of a hand written lyric of a favourite song/songs from the lyricist himself, or any song the band have recorded, celebrated with a hand written lyric, written on manuscript and signed. Of course they wouldn't be the original first draft of the song (they would have been illegible scribble on paper napkins and backs of cigarette packs..now long gone) but a very unique 'limited edition' handwritten copy from the hand of the performers & songwriters.
There are so many lyrics by other artists I would love to be able regularly read , especially in their own hand. I've already been told I'm mad and that the price should be at least 4 x as much but I think £25:00 & £5:00 (p&p) (Unframed ) is a reasonable price for such a unique piece of music memorabilia. If this is something that appeals to anyone or sounds like a great present for a loved one then drop me a private message with your choice of lyric and I'll forward you the details.
