this is what I was complaining about at facebook ... Suddenly is fashion been a Motorhead fan... Motorhead fans everywhere (even they know only AoS )..
People are asking high amounts for any item... and all them are rare... and people are buying... c'mon...
Your so right, its fashionable to be a Motorhead fan these days and of course to be seen wearing a Motorhead t-shirt. It got to the point where I only wear my Motorhead shirts when I'm seeing them now!
I think the whole collecting thing has changed in the last few years, there are more bands releasing cool vinyl pressings, box sets and different kinds of packages and more people are seeing what this sort of stuff can sell for and that has filtered down to bands like Motorhead and now their stuff is going for insane prices as I think people except it only to ever go up in price and will just be able to cash in and sell it in a year or so for double what they paid!
I know that if I had to pay the current going rate for the Motorhead and Iron Maiden stuff I have got in my collection I would not be able to afford it and frankly I would not be willing to pay it even I did have the money!
